Those Darn Ducks!


 
 
I've been working like crazy to get all my ducks in row for this adoption..
 

 
Checking off my check list...
 
 
 
Check
 
Check
 
Check.....
 
I had my days planned out between now and March...
 
Do this... do that... get this.. get that... go here... go there...
 
You know what I mean??
I was trying not to panic because March is SO CLOSE and we have so much to do and trying to figure out convention stuff was overwhelming me...
 
But it WAS March which meant I had ALL of February to line up my ducks in a nice straight line!
 
 
Well....
 
This morning things got a bit out of control....
 
Like CRAZY!
 
 
 
 
Remember we were submitted yesterday....
 
Remember I said we were expecting travel dates in 6 weeks at the earliest..
 
Fast yes... but not crazy...
 
 
 
Get this...... The families that were submitted a week ago just received travel dates...  They have to be there in a week and a half...
 
AWWWW!!!
 
TRAVEL IN 2 1/2 WEEKS FROM SUBMISSION TO APPOINTMENT
 
My ducks are not only NOT in a row.... Those darn ducks just multiplied on me!
 

 

 


 
We could be flying across the ocean in a matter of 2 1/2 weeks.
 
My to-do list just blew up!
 
But... as one of my dear friends just told me... This is when GOD SHOWS UP AND SHOWS OFF... 
 
If you weren't praying for us up until now... now is the time to start.
 
Much has to be done....
 
Including our Auction...
 
We are still having our Orphans Treasures Auction which starts on Sunday, February 1st.
 
Over 250 items are up for auction along with some cool Giveaway prizes.
 
It is looking like the auction will end around the same time we may be traveling which means that any of the items at my house will have to be mailed when I return.  Not my preference but there is little I can do about it...
 
Please support this auction!!!  We need shares and bids and shares and more bids... And donations if you don't want to bid.  As soon as it goes live on Sunday morning please check it out!  There is something for everyone!  On every price level... Little kids can even bid on some of the small stuff....
 
I will provide the link as soon as it goes live so please stay tuned to this blog!!
 
WE ARE LEAVING SOON...
 
We can't wait to go because we have a little duckling across the ocean ..
 
 
 
 
...and we are longing to bring her home!

  7. What ducky news! So happy for you and your little duckling-to-be.

    And I'm sure you won't quack up over your unexpectedly expedited travel schedule. You'll soon be right in the swim! :-)
