correction on garage sale drop-off

Turns out I mailed out garage sale donation letters, some saying the 12th was the drop-off and some saying it was the 19th. So either date is fine with us - we'll be here, probably doing yard work (yuck)! I realized the mistake after writing, stuffing, and stamping all the envelopes. Since I wasn't sure which envelopes had which date and I didn't want to waste all of those stamps, we're just going with either. I guess next time I need to make up my mind first, instead of typing up two flyers and planning on deciding later.
The dossier collection is going well - everything should be together by this week! I am so excited and nervous!!! After that comes the excruciating wait! I will have to keep myself busy this summer so I don't spend a lot of time worrying about it! I guess I can use that time to learn some Russian and Ukrainian. Maybe I'll start speaking Russian, kind of like how Damon occasionally throws Spanish into the conversation :)

I-171H approval!!!

We received our approval from USCIS on Saturday! Our homestudy was mailed only one week before receiving approval. That means as soon as we get our dossier together it can be on it's way to Ukraine!!! We are hoping to have everything ready to go by late next week. I can hardly even believe it!! I thought we would have to wait at least another month!!

Things are coming together for the garage sale. It will be held on Saturday, May 26th from 8:00a-4:00p at our house. I am hoping that Memorial Day weekend is a good time. If not then I guess we keep the leftover items in our garage for another date later in the summer.

If anyone has donations for us, you can drop them off on Saturday, May 12th from 11:00a-3:00p. If that doesn't work, email me and we can arrange a time to pick the items up or to meet. (
