At This Point We'll Celebrate Anything

8-15-07 PASSPORT UPDATE: The government is really shining bright right now - in today's mail was our "old" passports simply stamped cancelled on the inside. Too good! Old memories now become keepsakes. Way to go Washington!!!

We were a bit surprised yesterday evening when we brought in the mail. We each had a nice little priority mailer with our name on it. Could it be? It sure was... Our new passports arrived! We were expecting a much longer wait - not to be confused with The Wait...

Such a small thing but one more little thing not to have to worry with. Something we did regret about having to turn in the old passports is not being able to look at the stamps of the countries we had traveled to and being able to fondly reflect back to that time. Something we won't miss is the old pictures. We may be deluding ourselves but it just may be that our "new" pictures are better than the old ones. Then again, who's kidding who - we're talking passport pictures. And we'll just casually skip the part about being 9 years older.

Skipping... casually.....

Still, the old passports would have made great keepsakes. Oh well, I guess we'll just have to go to work on making new memories in our new passports. Starting with China...

Peace

Celebrate! Absolutely ANYTHING is worth celebrating at this point in 'the wait'- a mango, the heat index, a hangnail, breathing - bring it on! - Let's celebrate!
Do you prefer a cabarnet or a merlot?
Wishing you both a fine week - hopefully, a cool one.

Congratulations on the passports. I'm going to peruse your blog some more if you don't mind. ;-)

I wanted to thank you for stopping by and offering your encouragement on my situation with my little twins. I really appreciate it. I'm going to update as I know more.

Thanks again!
