You would be proud of me today. I told myself I could eat chocolate...but I really didn't feel like eating it. I only craved orange juice. I guess I'm getting a cold. Stress weakens a persons immune system. I drank allot of orange juice yesterday. It's snowing here in Germany. The kids are happy. It had been beautiful a week ago. The trees were blooming, and everything was my favorite color green. I like to see snow fall, but I'm not a big fan of the cold.I had wanted to work in my garden. That always relaxes me. I guess packing is my continued focus today. I have no doubt we are going. I tell myself I would be less anxious if I had a TA, CA, airline tickets, visas (which they now will not give me until I have firm travel dates and airline tickets), and all the other details worked out. I think I would probably be just as anxious if the details were worked out! I'm going to China, and I'm bringing home a new daughter. I'm sure if all the details were worked out, I would still be anxious! I sat at the breakfast table looking at Philip and Thomas. They were cracking jokes. They are always laughing. If I need any assurance it's going to work out...I just need to look across the table.
