TWO WEEKS IN

NORWAY....

Land of the Midnight Sun, Vikings, Trolls, Friends and Family.

What plans do I have, you might ask???

NOTHING.... NADA.... ZIP!!!

Just a little relaxin', talkin', hikin', hangin' and CHOCOLATEin'... with just a touch of shoppin'.

I am looking for a crib size down comforter.... a Traditional Norwegian Dress
for Tate..... How cute is it to see my CHINESE SWEETNESS in a Norwegian dress?? I have plans on getting yarn in just the OH SO PERFECT color for a sweater I want to knit for Tate.
AND OF COURSE I WILL GO TO .....



Mesa???? She is too big to go as a pet in cabin, so she is staying home with friends who will shower her with walks, loves, and snuggles. I have been so worried leaving her for too long. I am beyond happy that she will be so loved..... I just have one concern... these friends will never want to give Mesa back.... SHE IS SO SWEET!!!

I am a YING YANG symbol when it comes to the adoption, bloggin' , rumors, and REFERRALS.... I sooooo need a break from all this. Need to get my life back into perspective. Step back and smell the CHOCOLATE. Ponder, read, think, and reconnect to ME. BUT I need my bloggee friends, information, connection, and the joy... OH THE JOY of when my friends start to get their referrals. Two sides of me... both equally needed and in balance. Somehow, I cannot see myself staying away for two weeks from the Computer yet I relish the thought of the respite of this seperation.

Will you pack me in your suitcase? Enjoy the time away...Mesa will be fine. I have the same anxiety EVERY blessed time I leave Beau. We're just good mammas!!

Yes, how easy is it, for our adoptions to take over our entire lives, consume our every waking thought?!!!
It hit me a couple of months ago, that - hey, there is life outside of an international adoption!!!

Hoping you get that little norweigen outfit - how cute!!! An American girl, who looks Chinese wearing a norweigen outfit?!!! Fantastic!

You want to see Vikings you say? Well you don't have to go all the way to Norway? I've heard we have some Vikings out my way. The purple kind. And you can bring Mesa along! ; )

Have a great time! You deserve a break. I've found that getting away from the computer makes the time seem to pass a little faster. Now...if I could just remember how to keep myself off of it! Take care!

Have fun in Norway. I know just how tasty that chocolate is. Last year we hosted an exchange student from Norway. Her hometown is Molde. She sends our family this chocolate (Melkesjokolade) for every holiday season or birthday. My daughter absolutely thinks it is the BEST and never shares her bars with anyone.. LOL
Again... have a great time!

Julia said...

Oh wow, what a great place to visit and relax! You'll definitely come back refreshed, I home you have a wonderful time and get all things back in perspective the way you want them. :-)
