We're going to Russia!!! Yesterday, we got the call; a girl born Dec 2001 has been identified for us. We leave Dec 13! TEN DAYS! We are expected at the orphanage on the 15th. Wow oh wow oh wow! We're going to Tomsk, Russia.

The worst part about this: my husband's in New Jersey. He left yesterday morning and returns Monday afternoon. I told him, about an hour after I found out. He hadn't gotten to his parents' yet when I heard so I had to keep it to myself for a whole hour. I was jumping up and down in the kitchen. I did tell the cats and dog about it, too.

We so didn't expect to have only 10 days notice. And we never expected it to happen so soon. There are so many things I've put off (photo album, luggage, fruit leather, batteries, etc.). And now they have to be done or purchased NOW.

Happy dances all over the place!!!!!

If anyone would like to hear about what happens to us in Russia, check my blog at I hope to post daily, but can't guarantee it. I should be able to get one at least a few times during the week, however.
