Quick update!! After an exhausting, whirlwind of a trip to Chicago for work, I returned home late last night for a date with Obama & McCain. I quickly cleared my emails, only to hear the sound of a new email arriving shortly after I just emptied the mailbox. I have my travel dates!!
Rhonda and I will be heading out on 10/18 late in the evening with quick stops in LA and Seoul, Korea. The trip is so long that we won't arrive until mid-afternoon on Monday 10/20! Now that's some frequent flyer points!! I am so glad to have Rhonda going with me -- and huge thanks to Rhonda's husband Dave for helping make her part of the trip possible!
Double bonus during the trip is the Mike & Heidi Lee will be in Vlad at the same time! http://findingrfamilee.blogspot.com/ I've long stalked their blog and am so hoping we can meet up in Vlad. For my agency, Moscow is the "big region"; larger, so more families tend to go toward that region. It's wonderful to hear the stories of how they are able to meet up for dinner. I was hoping to share this with my partner in crime, Angie and her husband, Rick - but now I will hopefully get to meet Mike & Heidi!
Finally, one more small milestone to share. I received my FIRST registry present this week!! One more surprise waiting for me when I got home last night was a congrats present from my lifelong friend Pam. We met when I was around 4 years old!! Thanks Pam!!!
