Don't get your hopes up...


No court date yet....but I have high hopes that it will be today. (although, I am pretty sure I have felt that way for about 8 weeks now, so...)

Buuuut the glorious of glorious news is that....(drum roll please) Malak and I WILL be at the 2008 Blog Union!!!! In a VERY unexpected turn of events, my BFF blog friend suprised us with a gift of airlines miles and is booking our ticket as we speak!!!! What the???? Guys, this is why I love this blog community... (well, not because they buy us airline tickets) but because we truly are taking care of each other and I am amazed at how well we are all loved! I was literaly praying yesterday morning for the Lord to provide a way for us to get to Hermosa Beach (Pam is my witness) and a few hours later...I had plane tickets!

It is pretty rediculous how excited I am to meet all of you guys...let the festivities begin! Now I release all of you from having a super boring time at the blog union and ask that you have the best time ever, since the cutest baby ever, Malak Kidus and his mama will be there!!

Christie said...

YAY! How fun. I don't know why I felt the need to comment when I will see you in a half hour anyway, but oh well. That's exciting, and soo nice!

That's a miracle! Maybe I'll just get all of your phone numbers and go to the beach here in NC and call you and pretend I'm there :).
Here's hoping for a phone call today...

I hope you're right about today being court date day!

I'm really happy for you about the blog union--you and Malak are going to have SO MUCH fun!

Lori said...

I got so excited when I saw the picture - what a tease!

Well, since you have removed the spell or curse on the B.U'ers, I will have to re-instate it. So happy for you and still sad for me. :( Seriously, what an amazing gift, we're all blessed to be connected - I never imagined any of this when we started this process - heck, I didn't even know what a blog was! :)

Jesi and Joe said...

Holy cow, that's so cool! Yeah for Tara and Malak coming! Now, you just need that OTHER big news you've been hoping for, and you'll be all set!

BIG HUGS! Hang in there... you've got a crew of people rooting for you all!

Amy said...

Did you and Christie have lunch today...without ME?

InGod'sHands said...

Just checking in again. I'm sure I've sounded disappointed every time I have answered the phone today, since no one from Gladney has called. I think I've checked your blog about 100 times today. Still hoping for the call for both of us.

Blessings,Rebecca K.

Gina said...
