PANIC!!

May 14th! You know what that means? That we have 2 weeks to get ready! The house exterior still isn’t painted because we’ve been postponing due to frequent rain. Hopefully the painters will start prepping surfaces tomorrow. Now we’ve got to start packing, getting things ready at work (there’s always some paperwork required!), give the house a good cleaning, getting plane tickets, making final plans for house-keeping and pets, and a host of other things that I’m blanking on right now. Ok, gotta run!

CONGRATULATIONS!! WOOHOOO! I wish I was going with you;)

Look on YouTube, ID 251. My husband has a 'travel' video along with our other two. That will also get you ready for the disco music you will hear over there. LOL (I can't remember if I've told you before or not)

Remember, pack light!

Yay for you guys! Looking forward to following your journey...so soon! That is a beautiful time of year in Ukraine. You should be there for cherry and strawberry season. Yum! Blessings!

Debbie said...

Congratulations, you two! How exciting!!! We're hoping to hear our appointment date soon...there's a chance we could see each other in Kiev. I know you're feeling the pressure to get ready now, but you can do it!

Oh look, my mom made it back :)

Thanks all!! We're very excited and working hard to get ready. I'm looking forward to some fresh fruit and perhaps some summer bounty. Lori doesn't eat much fruit but she does likes cherries and strawberries.

Good luck all on getting submitted or getting an appointment soon! We started in June of last year so it took 11 months until the appointment date.

June, loved the travel video and the soundtrack on the blog video! Reminds me of summers back in Malta..lots of dance music playing there too. In the US radio is mostly Rock (love it) and Country (yikes!). Lately I've been listening a lot to hot 95 haha. I think we're going to fit right in over there!

Congrats. You will be meeting your new child/children soon. Can't wait to see your travels. The weather should be beautiful this time of year. I noticed on someone's blog yesterday that it was 79 degrees. Great weather.

Congratulations on receiving your travel date! I look forward to following your blog. Soon you will be meeting your child/children. It is a journey of a lifetime.

Thanks guys. Yes, no snow for sure! It'll be nice and warm, and then we'll return to Houston for the fiercest months of summer. We might not want to come back lol!

Wow, 48 hours is rough! We're feeling better now. We have a list of things we need to accomplish and have been steadily crossing items daily. We'll push this weekend to get most of the house cleaned and ready.
