One Step Forward

It has been a long time since we have had an adoption update but with my new slimmer sleeker husband we have made a step forward.  Since April my husband has faithfully been controlling his portions and exercising on the Wii.  With this persitance he has lost 30+ pounds and two pants sizes.  Well with this information forwarded to the Philippines we have been approved to move forward with the adoption.  ICAB the philippine agency that approves adoptions has said our paperwork is good to go.  So we are officially waiting to be matched with a child.  The average wait right now is 20 to 30 months so we will see how it goes.  Thanks for your prayers.

Well, I have had a vase with a candle in the bottom of it for a long time.  I had almost concluded that I was going to have to throw it out.  You can't put it on the stove to melt or the microwave.  I couldn't light the wick.  I had tried chiseling it out nothing.  Well I thought I would try one more thing... and it worked. 

Take a quart canning jar fill it 3/4 full of water and microwave it till the water is boiling.  Then set vase down in it.  Five minutes later candle slid right out.

Once in a while I succeed.
