Referrals are officially through January 12, 2006. That means there are another 34 calendar days before they get to our dossier. The two referral calculators I check each month are guesstimating October or November for us...that's 6 to 7 months. Hmmm...seems it's ALWAYS moving out and forever another 6 to 7 months!
This past weekend was a good one. On Saturday, Joe and I took my mother and nieces out to dinner and to the Chinese Art Academy's spring performance.
They had artwork displayed in the lobby, which was amazing, and the dancing was just beautiful. The costumes were very colorful and the dancers used fans, Chinese hats, wands with long ribbons, and other props for their routines. The music was very different, but very good. I think the kids really enjoyed getting a taste of Chinese culture.
Sunday was a lazy day and my friend, Christine, stopped by to work on her son's graduation video. We're using Window's Movie Maker to put together a video to show at his high school graduation party at the end of the month.
We were flipping through the latest copy of Everyday with Rachel Ray and spotted a recipe for Sliced Steak Gyros that looked really good. We decided to head out to pick up the ingredients and make some dinner. Joe grilled the sirloin, while we put together the Greek sauce and sliced up the veggies. Also, we put together a quick cheese tortellini side salad.
Dinner turned out great and it was a nice, spur of the moment way to spend the evening...cooking and sipping on some nice red wine.
