Counting Down....

Hard to believe that we leave in just over 2 weeks.  Over the Labor Day weekend I managed to get the worst cold I've ever had.  The stress of this whole event must have worn down my immune system.  So, in normal circumstances I would have just waited this out, but I went to the doctor yesterday.  While there, he mentioned a slew of immunizations that I should have updated for the trip plus mentioned some that I should have that I've never had.  So, on Friday I get to go in for 5 shots!!!!

Right now I'm just in a stage of shock and can't seem to get my s--- together to prepare for this journey.  I'm such a list person and I've got it all on the list, but have done nothing to implement it -- not like me.  Maybe it's just as a result of not feeling good right now.  

I've been following other blogs of families that are in Ukraine now and seem to just be sliding through the process with great referrals.  I sure hope this continues and we will be so lucky.  

Wishing all of you in this process the best of luck,
Heather

Hope you feel better before you leave. What immunizations did you need? I asked my doctor and she said I should check with the health dept.

Can't wait to follow your blog to the Ukraine. We are waiting for our travel date. We should be hearing something anyday. The wait just seems like forever! Best wishes.

All I have to say is that for all the months of waiting- the past month has gone by super fast and I feel like I won't get everything done in time! UGH! I hope you are feeling better. Take care of yourself- you will need your strength!
