Accomplishments of this week

I managed to dig myself out from the mound of paperwork from travel packet II that we got on Friday. Happy weekend to me! It was happy don't get me wrong I am just tired of paperwork! Oh and I hit a snafu (completely through fault of my own) with our LOA that we received on Saturday. We were suppose to date it year/month/day but somehow I missed it even though it was clearly stated on the letter and signed 5/29/09. I quickly realized "my" mistake and corrected it but not before spending all weekend worrying if this would somehow cause further delays. Fortunately, I e-mailed our agency Monday morning and she didn't think it would be a problem. In fact she said another family just did the same thing. Good now I don't feel quite as stupid!

We mailed our visa applications and the remaining paperwork in travel packet II. Also included was a very substantial cashier's check to our agency for our orphanage donation. That one stung for just a minute! We figure the less money we have to physicially carry on our beings the better!

This is all starting to feel very real. Our world is soon going to change forever. I can't wait to see it all unfold.
