Waiting...always waiting...

Just to give everyone an update...

I don't know what's going on with Mr. S. We are waiting for his sentencing date still. They have rescheduled it four times now. Except this last time they moved it, they didn't even bother to give another date. First the judge told us it would not be until November before he would see Mr. S to sentence him, which seems crazy since the longest sentence is six months and since he's already been there five, that would mean that he would have had to have been there for eight months! Anyway then the lawyer got it rescheduled for July 31. Then the lawyer called me the day before and told me that it was continued because he couldn't make it to St Thomas in time (they transfer him from Puerto Rico) except for the fact that he was THERE! I knew because I had talked to him. So I let the lawyer know and he got in rescheduled and they were going to stick with the schedule. He went to court and then they didn't schedule the translator. And because of the nature of the case, Mr. S has to hear the sentencing in his native language because of due process and blah blah blah.

So to continue we finally heard that the date would be August 13th. That's alright only two more weeks, we can handle that! August 13th gets here, we're excited, and then!...I get an email from the lawyer that says it will be continued to August 21st. Alright...well, not thrilled, but it's only one more week. We've already come this far. No problem!

So August 20th gets here, and I get an email from the courts forwarded by my lawyer that says the sentencing will be continued, with no reschedule date yet! My first instinct was to laugh! Of course!..why not? You have done what you wanted all along, why not continue it again?? And of course the lawyer emails us and says we just need to be patient..these things take time...well you know what? That's easy enough to say when it's not your life you need to be patient with! I have been patient! Well I have waited patiently for almost six months now...Im DONE being patient. I'm sick of it. I want my husband home. I want to start my life! I want to be able to PLAN something, anything!

But I know that one day we will get there. One day this will all be over. And I will thank the day it comes.

Stay tuned...

I am so sorry :( I was wondering if they would do that to you again!? It is easier said than with the whole "have patience" thing. I think you are awesome and have been doing great!

Love you!
