What to do while we WAIT for our Golden Tickets

One of the first things we were told when we applied to teach in Abu Dhabi is that we will need to be patient as things won't go the way we think they should. We were also told to eliminate the word "should" from our vocabulary and be prepared to both leave tomorrow and have a plan in case it is a couple months before we leave. It is funny because, while we are fine with the way things are going, family and friends seem to have issues with it. We keep telling them that everything is going the way it is supposed to and that we get there when we are supposed to get there.

In the meantime, we are living in my parents 400 sq. ft. casita and going on with work and school while we wait. Unicorn has finished 2 of her semester courses which is awesome because now we don't have to pack those materials! We have switched Monkey and Ladybug to to make schooling while we are in limbo easier. We have been checking out parks near my parents home and even went to FlipSide (kind of like an indoor mini amusement park). There has been some baking with Grandma and my mom and I got to meet Ann Romney and have her sign copies of her cookbook yesterday!
