I am SOOOOOO tired. I've been going non-stop today. I never had the chance to even eat lunch, and here it is dinner time already. I did my talk today; it went OK. Not as well as I would have liked, but everyone said it was good, so maybe I actually pulled it off. One more tomorrow, and then I'm checking out (at least my brain is!!) I barely made it through today knowing DH is already on his way to HCMC (he gets there Thursday, I think which confuses me since he left yesterday MY TIME and today is Wednesday...with tomorrow being Thursday here....). Anyway, poor DH sent me a few text messages from one of his stops yesterday to let me know he was doing well, but it was 12:30 a.m. here and I had JUST gotten to sleep knowing I'd have to get up early today, so I basically sent him a note back saying "stop texting me. I need my sleep". Not very nice, but WOW did I need the sleep. I'm ready to eat dinner and crash again.
Soon I leave for Vietnam. It's all I can think about now. I was doing fine for the first week...then I had my second melt-down...and yesterday and today have been OK. Now I can't even think about being here any more and am SOOO ready to meet my Minute. I've told a few people here about the adoption and everyone is so happy for me and keeps asking "are you ready to go yet? I can't believe you are here. Doesn't it just kill you?" I used to say no. But no, I'm changing my tune.
Not much energy for my dictionary now. HEre are a few just to tide you over:
frog & toad - road
furphy - a lie
googie - egg
hooroo - good bye
