The second: Cleaning out the water bins. If someone ever tells you they enjoy this job...ask them what they are smokin'. No matter how hard you try you end up covered in water and muck! You have to use a pressure washer to get the 2 inches of grime off the bottom and sides that has built up over the winter. I took a couple of muck shots to the eye in the process as well!! GROSS!!! Not to mention the smell.....think supermarket day old fish! EGAD!!! I will again spare you the before pics!!
Long story short-we had fun spending time together enjoying what we love - taking care of our horses :)

I woke up with such peace this morning. I know that everything is in the palm of His hand....

Yesterday I was really to the point where I felt that my agency wasn't being as proactive about our I-171 as I would like. I knew, I mean I knew it in my heart that something wasn't right, so I called the agency said that I needed some answers. They were, as always, very kind and understanding and immediately called the CIS office to check on our case. Long story short - she calls me back and gives me the "great" news with a twist!
She said, "You were approved on January 11th." I replied with, "You have got to be kidding me!!" Apparently, the postal service "misplaced" the ENTIRE stack of approvals that were sent out by the CIS that day!! This created a whole new meaning of "Going Postal" for me!!
So, where are we now? My agency said that since they spoke directly with CIS and that CIS will issue us another approval letter immediately that they have already contacted the attorney in Guatemala and we should have.......our REFERRAL by next week. HOLY MOLY!!! I was ecstatic when she told me this!! I was running around the office singing, I kid you not, "I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it..." See, you all are singing along now!!!
We are so VERY excited!! I will keep you posted if we hear any news!!!

I know, I know, it's time to cowboy up and know that God is still in control. I just wish He would control those fingerprints here a little more quickly. Today makes 8 weeks....
