Where do we stand?3:41 PM
You all are amazing, the prayers have been heard and I just got off the phone with the South African Consulate. My passport is in and it's being overnighted to me, I should get it by Wednesday the latest....I'm hoping since we're only 5 hours from LA that it gets here tomorrow, then everything will be done.
I can't tell you the stress I've been under, it's just all finally coming together and I literally feel like a huge weight is being lifted off of my shoulders, the foggy haze is being cleared up and I can finally really really let the feeling sink in. The feeling that after 10 years of being away from home, I'm finally going to be touching African soil again, smelling the air, smiling at the beauty that is the country and enjoying every single second I have with my family. It's almost surreal at this time and I think it will only hit home the minute that airplane lands on that runway.
So again, I love you all, more than I could ever say and I thank you from the bottom of my heart, you sent up your prayers for little old me and as always, the Lord obliged, IN HIS TIME, but he did. How does that saying go?
Praise the Lord indeed!
Here is what is going on around me:
And more luggage
Wii games being packed to take on the trip....I mean, we can't just go and not take the fun with us can we?
In between all the packing and worrying, I've been cleaning and cleaning....I clean the best when I'm upset LOL
Look at those shiny floors.
Now remember these? I started them for christmas last year and then ended up not finishing any. Well I was able to finish some in time to take with us....this way everyone can have one on their family tree this year.
I also finished my "Road to Avonlea" series and I'm so sad to see it end. I can't believe that 7 seasons went by so fast. For now my Netflix is on hold until we return and then next on the list is:
Elizabeth: The Golden Age - (Click for trailer)
Elizabeth The Virgin Queen - Click for trailer)
Mary, Queen of Scots
It's that time of the day, I have kids to round up, bathes to check on and all that other fun stuff. I also need to get some more packing done. As soon as the kids are in bed, I'm coming around to visit you all so I hope you're still up.
