SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE A NUT! O.K., I leave the house this morning to avoid seeing the housekeeper (that is another story in itself). I decide I want a bagel from my favorite bagel store. Well I get half way there and decide what I really want is a Harvest Grain Pancake from I-Hop. So I call my only friend who probably hasn’t eaten breakfast by 9:00 and ask her to go with me. Well, she was still in bed and informed me if I could wait a couple of hours we could go get lunch. Hello, I am hungry now! After all I normally eat at 7:00, but I was getting ready for the housekeeper so I didn’t have time to eat. She convinces me to go and get bagels and of course a diet coke and bring them back to her house. O.K., I will do it! But I remember I only have a $100 bill, which is basically impossible to cash anywhere I eat. So I decide to go to the ATM. I have already passed my bank so I find one of those little drive-up kiosks. I put my card in and it wants my pin number. Oops wrong card. I put in my Master Card, which does not have a pin number. So I finally retrieve the other bankcard I have, while talking on the phone. I put in my other card, put in my pin number and it tells me it is unable to complete my transaction! What? I try again. Same thing! Well this kiosk is not my bank so I figure they are having a problem. I get back into my car and backtrack to my bank. I go through the drive thru bank and it doesn’t work again. I give it one more try! Now I am desperate for food so I decide I will go into the bank. This is unheard of. I don’t think I have walked into a bank in years. Hey, I need to find out about ordering brand new money for the adoption anyways so I will go in. But just to be safe, I call Mike and ask if there is any reason my atm card should not be working. He said, “Not any reason I know of” And then it hit me! I had been using my Credit Card not my atm card! Sometimes I feel like a nut!

Help, I am not a blogger....

or for that matter even computer literate. This will be a whole new learning process for me. Sometimes I can see my posts and other times I cannot. I don't know what I am doing wrong. But stick with me and I wil figure this thing out!

Ladybug Kingdom

Today I hung up the ladybug picture I got for Emma's bathroom and the ladybug hooks . I am still working on making a packing list. I have copied five separate lists and I am working on consolidating all of them so that I am sure to have everything I could possibly need in China. I can't imagine how it will all fit into two suitcases and two backpacks.

Our Journey to Emma

Not flesh of my flesh, Nor bone of my bone, But still, miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute, You didn't grow under my heart, But in it.
