Sallys Tooth Again

I was having some problems where they did the bone grafting for my tooth.  I went to the Dr. and he didn't like what he saw, so he numbed me up and opened my gum.  Guess what he found, infected bone, BUMMER.  This dosen't happen very often, I had to be the lucky one.  He ground out the infected bone, stitched me up and we are going to have to have another surgery for more bone to go back in.  YUCK, YUCK, YUCK.  I hate Dentist, Oral Surgeons and the like.

No news yet for the adoption.

Weekend Update

Kelly and I at the Glidden Lodge
They have great food
and great views.The Trees in front of our house
Trevor kicking an extra point for football
Andrew kicking off
Door County was as I expected, Cold and Rainy, with some Sun on Saturday. Nevertheless, we had a great time. I don't know why, but this year we didn't buy as much "stuff" as in the past. Maybe the economy has something to do with it.

I was half thinking that while I was gone, I might get "the call", to say we have a referral for you. I did not hear anything.
So we wait.
When I got home in the mail was our I600 saying that we are approved to adopt from our wonderful government. Now all I need is a referral for our daughter.
Football season is coming to a close, Andrew had his last game on Saturday, and Trevor will have a playoff game on Halloween, if they loose then he is done also. He is playing the #1 team so it will be really hard to win that game, but with the Lord anything is possible I keep telling him.

Door County

Well I am off to my annual girls weekend away to Door County Wisconsin. I know, I know, you are thinking why there? Well it is a great place to shop and just be away from the daily schedules here at home. There will be 7 of us going this year, a little smaller than in past years but I think we will still have a great time. The weather up there is a balmy 43 deg with rain/shower mix. Dosen't it sound great?

No news on the adoption front, just waiting, waiting and more waiting.

Raining Again

I can't believe this weather we are having here in Illinois. Rain, Rain and more rain along with the blustering wind it is downright chilly.

I spoke with our adoption agency rep. and she had yet more paperwork for us to do. I wish all this paperwork would just get done already. Why is it that it can't all be done at one time, no everything needs to be done at seperate stages. So we wait.

Coloumbus Day Weekend

So how did you spend your nice long weekend? Mine was a flurry of driving, soccer, hunting and shopping.

On Saturday I was driving for 7 hours, wow when I finally added it all up I couldn't believe it. Trevor had a soccer tourny and he was only going to make it to one game because he wanted to leave and go to the youth hunt. Tom left earlier in the day to take Andrew. I thought we could make it but we got back home to realize that we wouldn't make it to the farm in time for Trevor to make it in the woods before dark. So back to the soccer game we went which by the way was over an hour away. We won both of those games, but we did miss the games on Sunday and his team ended up losing in the Semi Finals. So after the game I took, Kelly, Sara, Marilyn, Trevor and Samson and Lexi down to the lakehouse and we ended up getting there about 11:00 p.m., I was exhausted. While I was at the Soccer games, Tom, David, Tyler, Austin, Jacob and Nathan all went on the youth Deer Hunting and didn't get anything.

Sunday all the ladies went Shopping on the Spoon River Drive, it was VERY, VERY, VERY COLD! I would have to say we bought some things, but overall a very disapointing shopping experience. I think the cold had something to do with that. While the ladies shopped the boys hunted, and this time 3 of them got a deer. Way to go, Austin, Jacob and Nathan. Andrew shot a nice deer and it fell in its tracks, Tom thought it was dead, but it ended up getting up and running into some really heavy brush, and the guys couldn't find it. Bummer!

Last week I went and had the last few items from the homestudy apistilled at the Sec. of States office downtown, and sent them directly to the adoption agency office. We are still in the waiting mode right now. We wait until the Russian MOE gives us a referral.
