Packing

So we're basically packed. Since we're flying Singapore Air from Houston to Moscow then Aeroflot Nord the rest of the way, we had to look up each of their rules and pack based on the lightest limit. Aeroflot's carry-on weight limit is 10 lbs. and their checked baggage limit is 44 lbs. I really didn't think we'd make it but we're about 5 lbs. shy in each bag. We each have carry-ons under the limit too. Hopefully none of our bags will be lost but just in case, we've mixed our clothes in both suitcases. (I used to work for TWA, Continental and PanAm so I know the drill by now and I've heard horror stories).

While we were getting the luggage organized, our oldest four-legged son Fritz decided to help. Check him out - he's such a great little helper...heehee!

Countdown - we leave in 6 days!

Awww... poor guy knows change is in the air! I met someone from your agency on Saturday. Karen and her son, Slava. They adopted from Ark too - I think you both know each other. If you look at the picture on my blog from the market she and her little guy are on the left hand side. They went with us (Ron and Dinia and the Moons) to the market! He is an absolute cutie pie! I'm so excited for you to go (probably not as excited as you, but I'm REALLY excited!).

Godspeed!

I've been reading a book about pre-revolutionary life in Arkanglesk. It's good! If you haven't read it, let me know.

If I can help with anything on this end, don't hesitate to let me know! Sometimes it's just nice to know that someone friendly is awake in the same time zone you are. ;>
