We'll be going back to the doctor for the third time next week, to make changes on the medical form. I'm sure he's going to be real happy to see us again. I begged John to go in my place but he used the excuse that he has to work. Phooey!
The last two forms got rejected because the doctor wrote over two letters of his own printed name, and because the notary didn't put enough ink on her stamp. So we went back to the notary to see about fixing it, and found out she is no longer working at that bank. Went to three banks looking for a notary whose stamp doesn't expire within 12-18 months, and who was willing to travel to the doctor's office a block away. No such luck. After calling around we finally found a notary who will travel and whose stamp doesn't expire for two years...but (and it's a big but) she will not back-date it to last week. Excuse me while I scream again. AAAAAHHHHH! I had to send her all my documents explaining all the notary rules, and she said she will 'think about' whether she can back date it or not. Gotta love the pains of dossier preparation. I'd rather take labor pains with no epidural any day thank you very much!
Just a few updates from around here......Jude has been taking piano lessons for about 5 months now, and he attended his first piano festival, where he is critiqued on his performance. The judge gave him superior ratings and we couldn't be prouder of him. (Although I will be glad when he moves on from Jingle Bells and Indian Song, ha!) I had to take this picture of him all decked out, even though we didn't get a picture of him playing the piano. He takes after his dad and his grandparents with his musical talent, thank goodness.
John went to the feed store for hay the other day and came home with these little cuties....You see, we have nothing better to do than feed and water more little creatures several times a day. As you can see, SOMEBODY has been having a great time with the new pets.
Chicks in an Easter basket......
Nanny got her own private room and she seems much happier to be able to turn the volume of the TV up as high as she wants to. She slipped on some water a week or two ago and ended up with this:
OW....She still managed to walk to the van and go out with us for a Sonic cherry limeade. I sure love this lady!
Tomorrow starts the first Saturday of a very busy soccer season. Four kids in soccer, one in horseback riding lessons, one in piano, and one getting ready start up weekly therapy sessions, I might be very scarce here indeed.
Have a great weekend everybody. I'm off to watch a movie with my hubby!!
