Making Plans

Yesterday I made our tentative airline reservations to go back to get "The Princess". I never thought this would actually happen. They are on hold until September when I will feel a little more comfortable about purchasing them.

I have also made our hotel reservations as I was afraid the hotel would fill up before we made them. Elizabeth has also made hers so we will definitely be at the same hotel. This is good. I need to have Kevin call back tonight to give them a credit card number to make sure the room is secured.

I need to also call today to ask our agency to make the reservations for us at the hotel in Kazakhstan. They have volunteered the coordinator to do that.

Jennifer has applied for her expedited passport. Hopefully, it will be here in a couple of weeks and we can apply for our Kaz visas. For those of you who don't know, my friend (from way back in junior high), one of "The Girls" of GNO (girl's night out) Fame, is travelling back with me to get "The Princess".

So, plans are underway. We are getting closer. 57 days until we leave to go back for our little girl. I'm so excited -- and scared to death at the same time.
