And the beat goes on...

Not too much going on around these parts. Maple is still in quarantine until her symptoms are gone; so we're doing a lot of sitting around the house watching the paint peel.

Except it's wallpaper.

And it's not peeling.

I did spend a good portion of yesterday going through Chloe's toys and sorting into piles of takers, tossers, and giver away-ers. I did manage to get all her toys into her little Barbie suitcase. I'm still not sure what will happen with the books and stuffed animals, but I figure we'll stuff that suitcase when we get to it.

In addition to packing, we're busy filling out form after form to things in the states: Apartment applications, health insurance forms, Preschool apps, driver's license apps... and the beat goes on.

So, that's pretty much my life right now: Taking care of a sick baby, packing (slowly, but surely), and filling out forms.

At least, that's my we're-going-to-America life.

There is still that part of me that says: "Hey! You're still in Korea! Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy!"

And so I am trying. I'm trying not to focus all my energy on what is to come and budget a portion of my energy for what is happening right now. Only five short weeks until I will leave this beautiful country with its lovely people, and I am determined to make the most of every moment here.

So, that's it. Nothing too creative right now. Just to-do lists and mental notes. I know you can't wait for more...
