Better when I pick the right settings

So, I posted the other day about Matt and I finding a girl to apply for. I heard back from the website person Friday asking for our worker's information and then heard back this afternoon that she's already talked to both our worker, and the girl's worker about getting our information shared and figuring out whether or not we're a good match as parents for her. *fingers crossed*

This weekend was a bit of a whirlwind. Amy, Zoria and I drove up Friday night to Madrid, IA (prounounced Maaadrid (think of the noise a goat makes, not Madrid, or Maydrid). We stayed in the most fabulous place ever, called the Two Bears B&B. It's like a gigantic mansion done log cabin style and decorated in mountain and bear themes, but it wasn't too over-the-top in the decoration department (though the teddy bear shaped soap was pushing it). The lady running the place was SUPER nice, and she fixed us a fabulous breakfast both Saturday and Sunday morning.

The event was great, Amy's class went well and we each sold some stuff. We drove back early yesterday morning, so I could make it back in plenty of time for my 2pm class, which I did. The class was less stressful than the first half last Sunday (where I rewrote most of a pattern on the board). I had to spend some time finishing up the pattern rewrite last night so I could send it to my students. I worked on the pattern while I was out of town, but was so fried Saturday with activity that the more I looked at the pattern, the weirder and more wrong it looked. Thank goodness effulgent_inara was around to give it a once over and make sure things weren't as bad as I thought they were (they weren't).

Now, I've got an event tomorrow night (Silicon Prairie launch in KC), a class Thursday night, and then Matt, Amy, one of her students and I will be headed to St. Louis Saturday morning for another bellydance event. Well, Matt will be hanging with his family, while I'm at class. Should be fun though, I'm really excited to take classes with Ariellah again. Crazy to think it's been almost 2 years since we saw her in Witchita.
