...but I'm too tired.
It's 1 a.m. and we will have Mike at the airport at 10:30 a.m. I JUST finished printing out all the new passport applications so that Mike can sign them before he leaves the country...in the a.m.
After the news shows, a radio station interviewed some of the kids. I think the interviews were o.k. I'll find links later. Someone saw the van after the news story. We now have a van! It has a hole where a lock should be. It has no luggage or passports or gps etc.....but we have it. I was praying for the passports and really was prepared not to have the van...but this is the way it is. ::snort:: This IS great....I'm simply too tired to fully appreciate the miracle at this point. ::grin:: OH....the boys bought me M/M's while we were at Mcchord trying to speed things along today...that should help me fit into those maternity clothes that are waiting in Japan. LOL
I've applied for birth certificates. I'm not sure what I'm going to do beyond that. I will stay here in the area until the certificates arrive. I'm having them mailed to the TSgt who is helping me, as we have no address. I had planned to go visit family in OR after I was sure the passports were processing. The Sgt would prefer we stay here until we leave the country. We'll talk some more. I'm not sure I see the reason to stay here. It will be a minimum of 6 weeks, by the sounds of it, before the kids and I can join Mike. I bought a TRAC phone as I also had no phone. ::snort::
I'm not sure much of my faith came through on the news...but I felt good to be able to talk to the newscasters. ::snort:: One of them asked me point blank if I felt that God was telling me not to go to Japan....I tried to explain that I felt that He was telling me to look for the door in the midst of the trouble.
Well...pulling an all nighter is not going to help me deal with the goodbyes and paperwork tomorrow. The older kids decided to stay one more day with us. They want to help and I need to convince them that we are going to be o.k. I think it is killing the boys to leave while we are still "unsettled."
Off to bed...
