Got most of yesterday's list done. Today, it's more around the house things. The vacuum cleaner belt broke, so we have to find/buy a new one. We'd done so much paperwork during this time, I now need to pick out just the essentials and put them in the precious envelope that represents our work. Starting to think about packing, but the papers are filling my mind most.

Of course, when I pack for our usual trips, I think that there's a Walmart close by, so no need to torture myself. It's ok if I miss a few things. There are so many unknowns about Hannah, too. We've never seen her in person, nor have heard a clothes/shoe size. We're only making one trip, so we can't bring back the appropriate size later. We don't know how long we'll be there with her in our custody. We don't know if she's potty trained. I have some travel sized space bags, and it's summer, so clothes are lighter and we'll be able to pack more in our suitcase. I assume I'll be able to do laundry somewhere, if just in a sink, so we should be ok. I live in flip flops during the summer, so I need some shoes.
Right now I need to be making lunch...

Hey there,
Don't count on a washer/dryer there, but pack lightweight things that dry easily. They do a lot of hanging things on a line. We had a line out our 16th story window and it was the middle of Feb!! Think non wrinkling lightweight. Even things like Boxers dry easier than briefs... you get the picture :-) Good luck to you! It's been a heck of a journey :-)
