You guys are incredible! I sit here in disbelief that we are already 1/3 of the way to our GOAL… unbelievable!
One more unbelievable thing… we should be DTC tomorrow! I just can’t believe it! Our I 171 should arrive from the Houston courier at our beloved agency tomorrow and I have been told that everything else is ready and waiting to go to China, baby! I did get the ‘golden ticket’ on Friday (like I had hoped!) and spent the rest of that day running around downtown Atlanta like a crazed- soon- to- be-mother of 8… *wait, that IS me*… who somehow ended up at a bail bondsman trying to get a copy of my I 171 notarized! It was bedlam and I was in tears at least twice (no, the tears did NOT work). I was also heard telling Chris (for the umpteenth time), “THIS is why I am not the one to DO this stuff!” as I ran down Peachtree looking for the closest bondsman. It was chaos, I tell ya. Chaos. But it’s DONE now, notary found (thank you, Tina at ‘Jet Bonding’), said notary authenticated and said authenticator certified, or something like that. In other words, I AM DONE with this paperchase, PRAISE GOD 🙂
