Court Date!

I found out today that we have been assigned a court date.  May 20th.  That's 20 days away. 20 days.  Wow.  Can I tell you how glad I am right now that I'm not having to travel twice.  I would be freaking out right now (well even more than I am right now).  There are a lot of other cases scheduled for the 20th so there is a good chance that our case will not be heard.  But as my mother has said this is going way faster than we ever thought, so just be prepared! One good thing is that I'm pretty sure my case will be heard before the rainy season begins, even if its not heard on May 20th.  For those of you who do not know Ethiopia has a rainy season August and September and the courts close down.  So if your case hasn't passed before rainy season then you have to wait for rainy season to be over before it will be heard again.  So by having our court date schedule on May 20th, I'm relatively sure that it will at least be heard prior to rainy season.  SWEET!!!! 

If we were to pass court on May 20th this could mean traveling as early as mid-July.  Oh my! So much to do.  I have a niece who is due at the end of July and while I would love to be there for her birth, G-man I'm coming to get you if I can.  Sweet niece I'll see you when I get home :).  

So much to do now, daycare, paint a bedroom, shots (not fun) get work stuff in order to be off for 2 to 3 months.  But now I know so I can get started.  If you've got a paint brush, bring it on!
