We got TA

Today is the happiest day for me. We got the call this morning that our TA is here. I deleted the Limbo post because I didn't want to much negative feelings on my site. But this is how it happened.


Last night I wrote Stacey, so this morning when she called me at I believe 10:30 - 11:00 am I wasn't expecting her to say anything to me about TA's. So I answer the phone in a huff because I was cleaning my bathroom (lol). Stacey asked if I was ok and I told her what I was doing and she laughed. We said a few things (which I don't remember now for the life of me) and Stacey said "Happy Friday". I kinda made a sound like "what's so happy about it" and she it is happy Lisa your TA is here in front of me. So of course I screamed and my mother was downstairs and she was kinda screaming and Stacey was laughing the whole time. After that I really don't remember much of what I said to her or her to me. I will be calling her back very soon to go over some things.

Then of course I called Anthony and then from there I made my phone calls. We are waiting to hear when we leave. Since it's Friday, (of course everytime we need to do something or hear something it is Friday and we have to wait the whole weekend) we will have to wait until Monday or Tuesday to hear our CA date. I really hope we can get in before the Chinese New Year. It would be great if we can leave on Feb. 1 and return on Feb. 14th. The 15th of Feb. is my mothers 70 birthday and what a gift I can give her. Her new granddaughter Lily Rose who is being named after my mother (Lilly) and my mothers mother (Rose).

I am still shaking and I am still cleaning, so more to come later.....
