I just had an "Oh No" moment

I was cleaning out my adoption folder today and realized that while Rob's fingerprints don't expire until October, the notary's commission expired August 8. So here we are with fingerprints that aren't any good! And last time it took me forever to get those prints back from the FBI. I just can't believe I didn't figure this out until now. I will be sending a letter tomorrow BEGGING the FBI to process his prints right away. I'm just SICK!!!!

In other news, my niece Katie got married on Saturday. It's hard to believe she's old enough to be married! I was going through the lunch line in 7th grade when mom called to tell me the girls were born. The kids used to stay with us every summer and I gave the girls 80's hair and blue eye shadow and scared them by driving with my knee and about killed them (well Kara at least) when she yelled "Does Grandma know you have a tatoo yet". Oh the memories.

Thursday was the grand opening of our plant. The day didn't start off well. I got up at 5:00 and it was raining. It turned into a really nice day, though. We had about 800 people tour the plant and the sun came out so we were really happy. I'm glad the week is over, though. I'm not used to working 12 hour days or getting up at 5:00! 6:00 is bad enough!

An LSS family from Brookings got their referral from Ayudame last week. Hopefully we'll be down there soon...if I can get these fingerprints straightened out! Why is it always the fingerprints we have trouble with!?!?!

I came by with your Riesling and a lot of luck with the wait. Did you get the fingerprints figured out? Hope things are going well.
