Departure Webinar Thursday!

Well, hello everyone!  Yep, I'm still in Missouri.  AGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!  That was me screaming with frustration.  So, I got my authenticated papers back from Washington DC and now will have a Pre-Departure Webinar on Thursday.  A teacher on one of the groups that I am a member of "heard" that our group is to fly in on Oct 1 - 7 so I am praying for the 1st or 2nd!!

Also, I have packed yet a third time.  I know, AND used a bigger suitcase.  A very good, kind and sweet friend bought me some really cute new Graphic 45 Magic of Oz scrapbooking paper and I HAD to find room for it!  So, like Dorothy I will travel to a new land over the rainbow and hopefully not kill a witch in the process.

Seriously, I do so appreciate everyone's prayers and excitement for me.  I can hardly stand the waiting!  I've had two garage sales in the last two weeks and absolutely don't know what I would do without my mom.  She has been such an inspiration to me as we wait together.  I'm really grateful for the time I've been able to spend with my daughter and of course ALL of my family. 

Will let you know the minute I get my itinerary!!

Travel Documents

Filled out my travel document today!  Yay!  One step closer to actually leaving.  Of course, my suitcases are not ready to go.  Have to repack AGAIN.  I keep adding things to the pile.  Enjoying some company from NYC and had a great Labor Day spending time with my family.  Hope to have a leave date soon!

Sending off documents

August 31, 2011

OK, so I got the letter from my doctor and went to have it notarized.  After one last phone call to make sure I had everything done, I found out I had to have it authenticated as well at the Secretary of States office.  Thank goodness we have an office in Springfield!  So, sent six packets of documents to Washington DC using ProEx and should expediate things.  Once the Embassy gets them after going to the US Sec of State, they will send them back and things will get rolling for my departure date!

Packing commences!!!!  I have already packed, unpacked and repacked two times.  Ughhhhhh it's hard to decide!  I could take a third suitcase but I'd have to pay some big bucks so just going to get more stuff when I come home on breaks!
