one last post, this side of China

At dinner last night

We are sitting at the airport waiting to go
to Chicago.

We had a lovely day with our children yesterday.
Had a wonderful steak dinner and
to add to the fun,
I dropped my flip-flop in the toilet at Target
as I was flushing the toilet with my foot.
Lucy thought that was hilarious.
I couldn't help but laugh also.
Only me.

So I probably won't blog until Beijing...
if for some reason you don't find new posts
here, check JTM!!

I LOVE YOUR COMMENTS and EMAILS
so keep 'em coming!!!!
I cried reading each and every one yesterday and this morning!!

Also,
check my friend Karin's blog, would you?
We have a little "project" starting, having to do
with my trip.

Oh, and just so you know...
I'm constipated.
It's going to be a very long flight.
TMI.

Love the flip flop story, I can always count on you for a good laugh.

I will be keeping you in my prayers as you travel to bring your daughter home. I cannot wait until your next blog post...

I totally think we needed more details to get a visual. So, you flush with your foot to avoid touching the handle, then have to reach in & get your shoe. Do you hop to the sink & wash it off & then use hand sanitizer on it or call Kelly to buy you a new pair?
Sorry, I'm having way too much fun at your expense!!

Love you guys!

Sharla said...

Have a wonderful trip... Can't wait to follow your journey!

Elissa said...

forget about the flip flop, I'm worried about your TMI issue! Girl, you need to get it out before your trip so have some more coffee, snack on prunes, whatever it takes. You don't want it to resolve on the airplane. I'm just saying.

Now hurry up and get that big girl-- she has lots of fans waiting on her!

Jen said...

Well, I am wanting to know just exactly how and if you retreived the said flip flop!!!! And what you did with it AFTER you retreived it??! haha. So happy that you are on your way to Miss Shu-Li!!! YEA!!!!! May God Bless this journey!

Chris said...

Not that you will see this until you are very jet lagged....but keep the flip flops away from the squatty potties, that would be time to boil your foot

trina said...

Oh my Lori...it will be a long trip for sure in 'that' condition. LOL You crack me up. Drink lots and lots of water between now and then. I'm so excited for you, my friend!!

Karin said...

You are such a nut! Thanks for being the one to lose a flip-flop that way 'cause I flush with my foot, too. Now I will know to be VERY careful.

Chasity said...

Oh Lori,
That is so funny, that is always my thought as I lift my foot and flush the toilet "what if I lose my shoe in there", well I guess it can happen. Thanks for the laughs, we are praying for you in Ch*na, have a beautiful trip.
