Tickets - Check


Oddly enough, the price of the ticket from JFK to Kiev went DOWN since yesterday. So we saved about $40/ per ticket there. But the tickets from Orlando to JFK went up $20/each, we still came out a little ahead. After listening to all the pros and cons (thank you blog buddies and travel experts K&C) we settled on purchasing the one way tickets. I know for a fact that Robert will come back immediately following court. I'm not sure what I will do. It would be cheaper for me to stay, but I don't know how things would play out on the home front with Robert trying to work and take care of our four. Don't get me wrong, he is totally capable. I just don't know if that would be the best thing for everyone.

My weekdays are packed between now and the time we leave, so I am hoping to make the most of the weekends to get everything accomplished in preparation for our journey. Little things, like not having a bed for Kristina yet, are grating at me. I know it will all get worked out. Its just I had planned on painting the girls room and getting new linens if the budget allowed. Our 11 year old Hannah took a sewing class last weekend and sewed an adorable pillowcase for her bed pillow. She wants to make a matching one for Kristina. Maybe she'll figure out how to sew a matching comforted and shams before we get back from Ukraine! Maybe not. Anyone want to do a last minute Trading Spaces episode?

Leslie - make sure someone if videotaping your reunion with Kristina. I wish we had our reunion with Anastasia taped. I can still remember her squealing and jumping . . . I'm so excited for you. You were smart to get one way tickets. Besides not having to pay a change fee - it gives you the flexibility of flying home on whatever airline has room!
