Can't think

I seem to not be able to do anything. I feel like I'm on the verge of tears all the time. I'm not sad -- just kind of frantic and overwhelmed. I can't think straight.

The adoption attorney's paralegal said to me this morning, "In about a month, you're going to be a mom."

How am I supposed to get anything done?

This is a good freak out! :-)

BTW, I live in the Boston area, I got a bassinet and a swing I have been trying to get rid of, if you are interested (my email is on my blog).

It makes me so happy to hear this! Thinking is overrated most of the time anyway.

I'm pretty sure I'd be feeling the same way!

Natalie said...

That is crazy. CRAZY! I am holding in all kinds of excitement for you..... I'm anxious.

So I'm just going to sit on my hands and hold in my squeal of joy and just keep saying, "I hope, I hope, I hope.........."

This is so exciting. Even though it's taken your breath away, when it really hits home, you'll be beaming. I'm sure.

How do you get anything done? One day at a time. Necessities first. Fluff comes after. And consult other adoption blogs cause those moms rock and can give you some great advice on how to approach it all.

There are tons of us keeping our fingers crossed for you and hoping that everything works out perfectly. *hugs* Hang in there! Okay?

I hope you don't mind me mentioning this but our babies are both due around the same time. We've had more notice than you but you have perfectly described the feelings I'm going through right now. Nothing is ready except for my hospital bag. I'm so excited for you.

OMG! I haven't been reading my blog reader at all and totally missed out on what was going on with you. Congratulations! And yes, we adopted from FL and had to sign paperwork stating we are not ga.y. I know it made my stomach roll, but different states have different ideas...
