Five more working days....

Our facilitator has verified that the dossier was submitted on 11/23/09. She stated that the SDA has 10 working days to provide an answer. So, five of those days have passed.

Hopefully, we will have an answer by next Friday.

My wonderful, self-admitted OCD husband decorated the Christmas tree last night. I had a massage and when I came home, he was just getting started. I went to bed around 10:00 and when I woke up at 3:30 - surprise!!! Once he gets started, he can't stop.

We decided to add some color to our tree this year. We normally use ivory or gold balls in addition to our special ornaments. This year, we bought shatterproof balls and used blue, red, green and gold. I really like the new look. I think it is something a child will like better also.

**for those of you who know us - the Star Trek tree DID NOT go up this year. Don't faint - there are no Star Trek ornaments on the main tree either. He did mention putting it up next year or turning that tree into a child-themed tree.

***for those of you who may not know us that well - Tim love Christmas. I love it, but he has me beat, no doubt about it. But - he didn't work retail for 12 1/2 years and he has never had to put up 5 trees at work for 5 years in a row. Thank goodness I only have to do 3 at work now - but that takes the fun out of doing a tree at home.

Today we will decorate the mantel and the outside.

I am going back to bed. Just woke up and saw the tree and, well, I got excited!

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Love,

R & T

Congratulations on the submission. We were submitted last year at this time and could choose a late December date or January. We chose January since everything shuts down from the end of Dec. until after Ukrainian Christmas in January! Praying for good news for you still! God bless!
