Tickets--check

Airline tickets are purchased--with a little anxiety in there.
I had received an itinerary from the agent with a quote but had to have that approved by my agency staff from Russia. It took a day to get the approval and then when I told him to go ahead and book it, it priced out $800.00 higher than the first time. Luckily the agent worked on it for a while and got it for the original price which is still pretty high but more what I expected. Big sigh.
Called my bank and they are gathering "new condition" money--should be able to pick that up tomorrow.
Now I got to work on organizing my personal things--paperwork and bills, etc.
I just gotta keep ticking things off the list.
Of course, I put together the little bag of toys and books to take for my daughter right away so the most important thing is ready. :-)

Wow. WOW! You should have told me in your blog comment... I snooze for a few weeks and look what I miss. I am SO very happy for you. And so soon - YAY! See, I will take credit for predicting that this would happen after your premature purchase (remember - the secret from The Secret). Our crib purchase last time was a good omen for us... perhaps I need to take the plunge as well. In any case, it makes it seem more real. Like it WILL actually happen one day. And now it IS happening for you. I am SO very happy for you and cannot wait to cheer you along.
