The judge we were to meet with today has been ill and could not meet with us again. Our facilitator met with a new judge. This judge is not as nice as the other judge and would not set a court date. Our facilitator called for reinforcements and there will be two of them meeting with the judge tomorrow to see if we can get a court date. We are depressed and bummed, but we are sticking it out until we find out how long it will be before we get a court date.
We had a great visit again (as always) with the kids. Our faciliator was with us today so he could translate. I hope they don't feel like they are being interrogated.
Hats - are a required piece of clothing here. As soon as you leave the house without one you recognize right away that you left it. Now, me being with limited amount of hair, may recognize it alittle bit quicker than Sharon does. The real bummer here is that I lost my beret somewhere in south Ukraine and I had to buy a standard black beanie. The other thing about hats is that they cause a bunch of static electricity. So when I go to kiss my wife I get that same shock I did when we first kissed. Ok, I'm missing a few other things. Besides having a hat on your head you need gloves and a scarf. I'm not kidding. The scarf actually works once you figure out how to tie the "foot" thing. Sharon and I wear gloves, but no one else needs to; they just walk around smoking, carrying packages, and drinking cold beer. But I'm telling you that being from the south if you don't wear your gloves you will regret it. Not to mention the fact that both Sharon and I wear long johns (top and bottom) every "foot" day. Now I don't know who long john was, but he was a smart man.
This morning's breakfast was absolutely terrific. We had porridge, pancakes, fig jam, bread, cheese and ham. Ok, I don't know if ya'll know this, but June and Dennis told us they would take the extra cheese and bread to the kids. So every day Sharon and I limit our intake and pack her purse full of anything that we possibly can stuff in there to take to the kids. The kids love it! Restaurant food served from a purse. FOOOOOT!
