Note worthy things today:
Our tour guide Barbara - when asked a question by any person in our group - no matter male or female....responds "Yes sir"! Oh...it is cracking us up! I'll say Barbara, do we need to head to the bus now? And she will say...with a huge smile - Yes Sir!!! :)
And talk about conserving space...so we are on an 8 lane expressway today in Beijing. As we drove at mock 10 down the highway, I am looking out the bus window....and in the middle of the north and south bound lanes of traffic in a grassy area - about 10 feet wide and very long - are men herding sheep? NO KIDDING! Just making use of the long thin grassy area in the middle of the biggest city I have ever seen...herding sheep in the middle of the highway? NUTS!!!
Ok...I am just dead tired. I am really understanding why they are keeping us in Beijing for two whole days. I am so tired that my eyes actually hurt. When I try to sleep at night, I wake up after just two hours of sleep and my body thinks it is the middle of the day and I am just taking a nap? Even though I am tired enough to sleep for a week. I know tomorrow will be better!!!
I leave on a plane at 9am in the morning (about 8pm your time) and fly to the city where I will get Josh on Monday!! No word yet as to if we can go to the SWI in Xinyang yet, but we were told to wait and ask our guide when we get off the plane tomorrow! Many of us getting our kids together on Monday. Every child from Henan Province will be brought to us in the capital city of this Provence. We are all very excited and very tired...and we just want time to speed up NOW so we can see our children! Some adopting babies, some toddlers, some girls, some boys, and some older children! Amazing diversity in people and situations! Makes for very interesting conversation and very nice people! There is not one family that I don't love! We are all kept so busy, but we are finding time to get to know each other and our individual stories! Very nice way to pass this time!!
I hope to be in touch tomorrow from our new hotel. I'll sign off now from Beijing! Love to all of you - I love reading your words and I am so blessed to have you all routing for me from the US!! That is helping me so much right now! I don't love being alone? I am ok, but missing my kids and STeve and my friends and family very much right now!! There's no place like home....there's no place like home.........click click!!! :)
