A Long Week AND GOING PRIVATE!!

Well it has been a long week here and I haven’t had much time to post.  Our dossier was received last Monday in country.  It is being translated now and will be submitted to the government on Monday!  We should get word on Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning that our dossier was accepted.  A travel date isn’t far behind now.  We are hoping to know at the end of the week when the government over there would like to invite us to their country!

So that being said, we will be going private on Friday, April 3rd.  Anyone who reads our blog and would like to continue to read it, please either leave a comment with your email address or email me privately and we will be sure to send you an invite on Friday!  We just want to be able to talk more freely about our travel dates, our plans, and the country we are traveling to and if we go private, we will be able to do that.

In this last week, I have found out that I am NOT a patient person!  I don’t need to leave tomorrow to bring Jacob home, but it would be nice to know WHEN we are leaving.  It is very hard to arrange childcare when we have absolutely NO idea when we need to be ready to go.  I will be very glad when we have our date and we can start to plan accordingly.

I am starting to nest clean the house.  We are trying to get as much crossed off the list as we can before the end of the week.  Joe put up the handrail on the basement stairs today.  I made several hundred phone calls on Thursday and got ALOT of things accomplished.  It was actually scary how quickly things fell into place.  Makes me think that we might get a quick quick travel date!!  We shall see!!  REMEMER THAT IF YOU WANT TO KEEP FOLLOWING ALONG, PLEASE COMMENT WITH YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS OR EMAIL ME PRIVATELY!!!
