Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted
according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or
slow to do the humble work.

I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)
If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.

Well, the fire was April 18, but we are STILL not back in our house!! The GOOD news though, is that it is almost finished!!! Mark and I went out there yesterday to let the delivery guys in to bring in our piano and we were very pleasantly surprised to see the cabinets almost finished and the appliances had been delivered! Now, all that's left is to lay the carpet in the Master Bedroom, front closet and Rec Room, and to finish the cabinets and slide in the appliances!! Then, they'll clean everything up and call it done!!

Our furniture will need to be delivered and our "cleaned" stuff from ServPro brought back, and we can move back in. We HOPE to be in by Thanksgiving!!! It has been such a long time since we've been home...!!! We are grateful for the house where we're staying, but we're ready to go home...

PLUS, we agreed to keep a Russian chaperone for a Russian/Latvian hosting program for a month (mid-Dec to mid-Jan) and I need a place to put her!

So, the house repair, Nina (the chaperone) coming, the kids changing schools back to Mims, moving back home, getting Simon's paperwork ready, fundraising for his adoption, and Thanksgiving has REALLY kept us hopping!!! But life would be so BORING if there was nothing to do, right??

If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
