I was able to talk to Lale last night for about 15 minutes, and when I hung up, I felt SOOOO much better. Its amazing how you can get so used to talking to someone - and when you can't it can throw you for a loop.

When I talked to him on Tuesday, it was only for about 3 or 4 minutes, not very long, and I didn't want to keep him because he was with Sendi and Gisela - and it had been so long since he had seen them, along with his parents and everyone else in his family. I wanted to let him go and enjoy them.

So yesterday I got to find out how he was doing, and hear about our house and land. We bought both pieces of land without having ever seen them. We trusted his dad to help us find a place. And he did. We have 100 manzanas up on the mountain, and 6 manzanas down in the flat area, about 10 minutes away from the first piece off land. We bought a video camera so that his dad could take video and send it to us, but unfortunatly his dad will never be a videographer, LOL. All we saw was the ground and feet when his dad was working, and blurry images as he swung from one side to the other showing all of the land. So even after 3 videos being sent to us, we had no clue about the land up on the mountain. So when Lale went there yesterday he got to see it all. And he was very happy with everything that he saw. He also said that our house was a big house, and it was looking very nice. He had told his brother (who builds houses) to do things rather rustic, in case we wanted to move so that we wouldn't lose money on the house. However Lale said that Chepe (his brother) did things very nice, and the plans that he had on finishing our house would no longer work because the house looked to good. Things had to be done so much nicer - his words, LOL. I can't wait to get some pictures and updated videos as well. We did know what the 6 manzanas was like though because as his father gave a tour on the video, Lale's neice was the one recording the video so we got some good footage of some of the animals and of the land.

Last night, during my blog surfing I was able to catch up on many blogs that I hadn't had a chance to read, and I got a lot of light bulbs going off in my head as far as things I want to do to help me with my countdown - after I get my thoughts organized I will post more on it.

Anyway, I just wanted to post that I was feeling much better - no tears, nor almost tears all day today, so things are going well.

Hi! Thank you very much for your comments. I read your blog too and I must say that I teared up. It is so sad what we are all put through because of Immigration. There are days that I just want to throw my hands up and say "forget it" and go live in Honduras with my Catracho. I miss him so much.

I was wondering if you went through the Immigration process at all? Or did he get denied a visa, have to file a waiver and then have that get denied? My husband and I have made a decision that if the waiver gets denied we are forgetting about living here in the U.S. because it is just not worth all this pain. :(

I haven't read that book yet but I would like to sometime!

Hope to talk to you again soon and thank you for commenting my blog!

Take care,
