Well.. thought I should maintain this illusion of control I have grown so fond of. I called the US Embassy today to see what the deal was. The nice lady said that we should get our "pink slip" tomorrow or the next day ( Wednesday or Thursday). So, with as much confidence as I can muster, declare that we will know by weeks end when EXACTLY we will go get Jonas' and bring his butt home!
PS.. This is very good news!
