I am finally not running around like a chicken with my head cut off! But I still have not packed. I still have to do the normal activities that we do every day, so today was gymnastics. It is pouring rain here in California like I have never seen before. So it makes the errand running interesting for us who are not used to this much rain. After gymnastics we ran to the pharmacy to pick up our prescriptions for travel. I picked up three antibiotics for the girls and pink- eye, drops. I saw those three little bottles lined up and one had Lily's name on it! I will soon be the mother of 5 daughters!
After that I went to Barnes and Nobel to get a Cantonese phrase book and to look for a street map of Guangzhou. While I was there, I found a picture dictionary for Lily. We can use it in China and here to learn English. I like it for her because it has everyday pictures and it is not geared for babies. It is actually geared towards adults, but it is one of the most comprehensive picture dictionaries that I have found.
I went on to get Lily a toiletry bag and some other little items for activities on the plane. When I got home I took one look at Meilynn and knew she was sick. Her cheeks were very flushed. I took her temp and sure enough, it was 102. So now we need prayers that she gets better fast and does not repeat what happened to her last year when she had the febrile seizure. Also, that the rest of us do not get whatever she is beginning to get. Also that I can sleep without lists of things running through my head of things I need to do.
It's not so bad to be sick when you have a sister to keep you company!
And finally here is a picture of the Hotel we will be staying at. It is the Garden Hotel. Our first adoption we stayed at the Victory. The second, The White Swan, which for us was by far better than the Victory. So now we will get the opportunity to experience a new neighborhood in Guangzhou.
