Just booked my flights...

for a trip to met a couple of Blogville buddies!! Soon I will be off to meet Lisa, who is waiting for her daughter Tate, and Julie, who is very close to her referral for Tess.

I can't believe I'm actually doing this because anyone who knows me knows that it's pretty darn out of character for me to fly somewhere by myself to meet people for the first time. First of all I HATE to fly and second of all I'm pretty darn shy and not the most outgoing person you would ever meet. I have a feeling that this will all change the second I step off the plan and meet Lisa, who is a self proclaimed wild child and party girl!

I am soooo looking forward to meeting Lisa and Julie, since we've been cyber chatting for quite a while now and I've been following their blogs since I started this whole adoption process back in August '05. It's amazing how you really do feel connected to cyber pals, especially in a situation like this since we are all going through this waiting game together. Actually, I just thought of something...the timing of this trip is exactly one year from the day I mailed in our adoption application to A Helping Hand...pretty cool!

Oh, by the way, note to Blogville...it's not a real good idea to do a Google search for images of a plane to insert into ones blog when they have a fear of flying. One will instantly be bombarded with images of planes crashing into buildings and planes with gaping holes in them. Oh well, I have a month to forget about that!
