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)

Whew! What a day!! I was supposed to take the day off to take the boys to Tampa to Shriners for O&P fittings, but Nikolai came down sick, so I had a free day! WOW!! This was the perfect opportunity to get my stack of stuff notarized. We took it all to our coordinator who checked it over, then we begged free notarizations off of a friend of the coordinators who notarized 13 documents for us! You should have seen the papers all over her desk!

The challenge came when we had to get our Medical documents redone. I found a traveling notary online and he agreed to meet us at the doctor's office at 1:15 to get our papers notarized. I made an appt. several days ago and verified the appt. in the morning. Well, when we got there, the doc was hugely busy, ready to leave for the day, and we were told we didn't have an appt.!! Long, stressful story short, the doc put his big swirl on the papers, and the notary notarized them. WHEW! It was very obvious that they wanted us to LEAVE the doctor's office, but the difficulty of not only getting Mark and me there at the same time, but with a traveling notary that we had to pay, was just too much and we pushed and insisted until they did it. Now, we have to get that document checked for accuracy, as that is the document that everyone seems to have so much trouble with!! ACK!!

Gotta run. I have a full day of work - yes, I know it's Saturday, but I didn't want to take Friday off without pay, so I have to work today. Ugh. But you do what ya gotta do...

If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
