Wednesday words

I've been super busy today. Had to leave at 7:30 this morning to drive to Louisiana for a meeting. A friend and I went together and it was really enjoyable if you don't count the morning chaos of trying to get everyone ready this morning.

I am the Chairperson for our Women's ministry at church and we've got a retreat next month at Cypress Bend Resort and my friend and I went to tour the place and finalize all the arrangements. They treated us to lunch and we had Natchitoches meat pies for appetizer, they really reminded me a lot of Russian Piroshki. I had a yummy Pontchartrain Snapper with shrimp and crab sauce, steamed asparagus and rice pilaf. My friend had Ribeye steak with the asparagus and rice pilaf. It was all delicious.

Then we drove home for the 1 hr. 40 minute drive. It's a gorgeous but hot day today (90's still).

When I got back to town I had to stop by hubbie's office to sign some bank papers on our new construction mortgage then to get D from school.

From the adoption agency, I got the e-mail with the documents I need to update our dossier with. So I'll start working on those tonight or tomorrow and we'll get them sent off to Austin to apostille. It's only 4 or 5 things so no big deal.

There are rumors that another batch of agencies are about to hear some good news soon. Our agency has no idea if they're in this batch or not, so I'd think it's not likely. It seems that agencies usually are knowing a little before the official news comes out. So, we'll see. I'm still thinking end of October. Fingers crossed.

Sounds like you had a great afternoon meal! Yum! I'm glad your update list is small... I'm sure anything less than 20 docs seems manageable after you've already been through the adoption process. :-) I hope you're right about accreditation. I'm still not very hopefuly we'll be in the next batch - or that there will be a next batch anytime soon! There goes that pessimist in me again. :-)

I just looked at the recipe on the site you linked. I've never had a meat pie. It sounds good.

I hope the rumors are true and accreditation comes soon for everyone.

I hope the accreditations come through soon for you, the wait has been entirely too long! Thanks for the link...one of these days, I'll figure out how to have a blogroll and do the same.

I am so glad you started your new blog, and I love the look of it! I really hope and pray the accredidations come soon so you can meet your sweet little girl and finally get to bring her home.

Looks like you're going to have a wonderful time at the retreat! I looked at the website, and it looks like such a nice resort.

I LOVE the song lyrics you posted too by the way. I haven't heard this one, and it brought me to tears. Thank you for posting it. Even though we have Owen home now, I still empathize with everyone who is waiting, and now that we are thinking about what our next step will be in having another child, these words really spoke to me.
