Morning sickness

I feel so scatterbrained right now (for those of you who know me well, it's more than my usual scatterbrained-ness); they call this a "paper pregnancy" and I sure am starting to feel it!  Okay, so maybe I'm not feeling literally sick like pregnancy #1 and #3, but it sounded better than "morning scatterbrained-ness" in the title :-)   I like to make mental lists and feel so accomplished when I can check something off.  In the mornings, one of the first things I think about is all the paperwork that I hope to work on that day.  Today I contacted our mortgage lender, who happens to be out of state. They asked that I fax the needed info to them.  So the boys and I drove down to Office Depot and faxed it, only to realize I left my wallet at home!  I told the guy I would be back, and 30 minutes later I was.   The boys were troopers with all the driving.  A few hours later a really sweet woman from the lender's office called me to let me know that it's in the mail! She assured me that they have done this for international adoptions and were very careful to meet the stringent notary requirements.  I sure hope so!  We only need a few other things notarized from "other" notaries, and the rest can be done by our trusted notary at the bank :)  One more thing checked off (hopefully!).  We'll be there soon sweet Darya!


  1. Hang in there Marianne! I suggest you get an all-in-one printer. I have one and use the fax and copy machine all the time!! I'm guessing you will need that too, very soon!!
    Keep up the great work!

  2. Hi B! We do have one, but the fax function isn't set up. I decided to trek to Office Depot since I wanted to look at digital cameras anyway so thought I'd kill two birds with one stone. My camera phone isn't going to cut it when we travel! I am glad I can scan and email, though!
