Patience rewarded!!

Okay so maybe not the news you've been waiting for, but I's gotta talk about something, right?

3 years ago, Jon and I bought two sticks at the opening of the beaches. Seriously they were just sticks. I won't mention why on earth we would pay money for sticks but we did and well that's a whole 'nother story. Anyhow we put them in the pots where the people told us we would get Hawaiian Lei flowers. RIGHT!!

Now don't get me wrong we did get leaves, but no flowers....for three years. Then all of a sudden, this year...beautiful Plumeria flowers. See I have patience. Okay I really didn't do anything and I'm surprised the darn sticks did anything, but now I will spoil my little blooms with care.

On another note we rec'd our updated I171H in the mail today. We won't mention that Jon and I are now adopting from Tiawan(please tell me where that is and if their waiting list is shorter). And I guess now I'm doing the whole hyphenated name thingy. Whatever...we have to update the form anyways. I'll see if the agency thinks this will be a problem?!?

Oh my goodness- gorgeous flowery surprise!!! I want a flower producing stick! Where can I get one?!

I had to laugh at your comment about Tiawan ("please tell me where that is and if their waiting list is shorter"). Slight misspellings shouldn't make big deals, but too many of us have had these horrible government experiences where it *was* a big deal, so I understand your concern.

Surely, your book will be shown soon. I can't wait to hear of your good news!!!

Very pretty! When I move to Florida I can have pretty flowers this early in the year too. I am glad you got your revised form and happy you don't have to pay for your next. The time is coming for us, I can feel it.
