“DO YOU HAVE A DATE YET”??
Multiples times a day, Patrick and I are asked when we are going to get our little Ticos! How I want to answer!! My common response is “we don’t have a date yet, but soon…hopefully May!”
This is usually followed by “why does it take so long” or “are you ready”?!
We are at that point in the endurance race where you can’t quite see the finish line but the people on the sidelines are encouraging you, “you are ALMOST there, so close” and you know they are right-you know they are not blowing smoke-you ARE ALMOST THERE! It’s just that almost part that gets ya you know?! So this is the “not yet but almost” blog
Don’t get me wrong, I am glad that my friends are asking, so no need to stop asking…just know that I can “almost” answer you! If everything goes as it should, we will be setting off in late May, so we really are so close! Strangely enough, the Costa Rican side is ready for us to travel, but we had to go back and do a revised home study since we prepared the home study over 18 months ago and before we travel this has to be current….so….blah blah blah (I really don’t want to bore you with the logistics) but we can taste, can see, can smell that finish line! The last step will be to get our fingerprints done (for me this will be #4) again in hopes that mine will register correctly since apparently I have “soft” fingerprints that don’t show up well. Okay, if you are reading this, and you know any tips to fix soft fingerprints-I am all ears It’s good to know that if my career in fitness crashes, that a career in bank robbery awaits. I am assuming that thieves have these same soft fingerprints! Ha, in all seriousness, lets hope and pray that they go through this last time with no issues and within a month, we will have a travel date!
So, without a doubt, the next blog will be entitled…..THE LONG AWAITED TRAVEL DATE IS BOOKED!!
