Quick message (edited)

To show you my yesterday progress:

Esteban's birthday is on friday!!!! He wants some Playmobil : it's the first year he asks for something !!!

For those who have a french ancestor or who are interested in genealogy (Debi ), check this web site. You may find out if your ancestor was killed during the french revolution ! (that's a link I found in a magazine)

Tonight I feel very sad and disapointed. Chuy's niece had told us she sent us ALL our packages (with all the stuffs we couldn't bring with us on the train) on febuary 8th from the german post office. On march 8 th, I started to worry because we were not getting even one package! Strange ... So I called the french post office to see if it could be a problem between the 2 countries. No, nothing there ... Feeling, it was very strange, I asked Chuy to call her again. So tonight we learned that she never sent ANYTHING on febuary 8 th She just lied to us What was she thinking? That we won't notice ? I feel so disapointed . I mean: isn't it easier to tell the truth? I left 50 Euros for her to send us some packages through the german post office and then we were planning on sending more money. I just don't understand ... So she actually sent them on march 14 th = this past thrusday (through the US post office which will take 2 months to arrive here - that's what happens when you send the stuffs economic to Europe... The only time a package sent economic arrived quickly, it was when UPS was on strike and the USPS was afraid to have an overload of packages.) What bother me the most is the lie ... She would have told us, we could have told her to wait for us to send some money (that's my face tonight ... teary eyes ... )

Your snow family is looking wonderful, you are making such good progress on this. So sorry to hear that your packages are going to be so delayed. How rude of her to lie and say one thing and do another. She had to know you would find out. I'll keep my fingers crossed that the packages get to you sooner than you expect, so it will be a nice surprise.

What is the matter with people? Too bad she just couldn't be honest with you and tell you that she hadn't sent the packages yet...I'm sure you would have understood that much better than having her lie to you.

So sorry this happened to you.

I'm really sorry to hear that Chuy's niece couldn't tell you the truth. I just hope that the packages would arrive super fast to you. You know, sometimes the mail comes quicker than normally.

Your stitching looks awsome!
