Well, my sister and I leave in a few hours for NYC. Am I done packing? Why would I be? I’m one of the world’s worst packing procrastinators…I’m basically done, I guess, but I think I must function best under pressure. Maybe that’s why life at the hospital with my sweetest guy wasn’t impossible for me…I just kicked into gear and did it. Are you like that? I mentally plan ahead, heck, I even packed in my head for this trip about a week ago, but, apparently when push comes to shove, clothes in my head do not equal clothes in my suitcase. The night before I left for college my freshman year…I packed. My mom called me yesterday to see if I was all packed, since she had talked to Dana, my sister the day before and she was packed…Jason will receive some sort of extra credit for being married to me on this earth, not because I am special but because HE IS!

I’ve been thanking him for his support in this endeavor. Never when I signed up for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer did I realize the amount of time and energy that would go into preparations. I am really excited that this upcoming weekend is the culmination of months of training and fundraising. He rocks as my husband, best friend, and as Em’s daddy! I told him yesterday that when I get home from this memorable weekend, I look forward to being a wife and mom again, (and friend, as I’ve been a sucky one on all levels), as I know I have not been the best…not that I’m expecting to suddenly be the best, either, since that was never a title for me prior to this, but you know what I mean.

On the business side of things: We may go to the TODAY show on Rockefeller Plaza and hold up a big sign that says, “Noah for Knockers: Saving them 2 x 2” on either Thursday or Friday morning, so if you are bored, you can look for us. Also, I am excited to be able to share Noah’s story with a group of women on Thursday night, so if you think of it, please say a little prayer for me…that God would share and that He would be glorified through others lives being encouraged.

I’m taking my computer and camera, so hope to update on Saturday and Sunday after our walks.

The big cat and my little mouse are going to play while I’m away…they are going to see the gold medal gymnast Olympians flip and twirl and do amazing feats of strength! It’s a surprise, so don’t tell EM! She is going to freak out! I wish I could be here to see her face! I’m really going to miss them!

Thanks for your prayers for our team!

  4. Adrienne,
    Could you pray for and put the word out for my cousin and her baby, born today, Evelyn Ellen Sheehan? She was born in distress, is severely anemic and is in need of a complete transfusion. I’ve been reading your blog forever, and it seems like you have a direct line!

  5. Hey Adrienne,

    It’s about 7:30 p.m. NYC time and I’m thinking about you after your first day of walking. Can’t wait to hear all about it! Continued prayers for you, the team and the walk overall.
