Ground Hog Day and a bit of Valentines Day

No not a weather related post.  Ground Hog Day-the movie.  We did our 4th bank letter today.  Yes, you read that correctly. 4.  The people in the bank are lovely.  I become more and more convinced that these obstacles are to weed out the weak.  Now I pray for movement and referrals.

Meanwhile, I painted the half bath.  Chalkboard paint.  Love it!  We have Valentine sayings on the wall.  Right now we have love needs no map, it can find its way blindfolded and love is friendship that has caught fire on the walls.  When I was doing it, Bella walked in and said, "Dad is going to freak out!"    (Where she got freak out, I don't know but it is so cute coming out of the mouth of an almost 4 year old.)   "But do you like it, Bella?"   "Yeah, I love it, but Dad is going to freak out."  So I call Jason to make sure he gives her a big freak out when he gets home.  When he walked in and saw it and gave her a good fuss, she was so tickled pink and kept saying, "Mom did it all by herself."  So she was talking about the fact that I could paint a room all by my self, had nothing to do with the color.  hmmmm  I tackle the family room next.

I LOVE your paint!!!! I JUST bought some chalkboard paint too! I was thinking about using a huge frame to make a chalk board, but you really have me thinking about just going ahead and doing it on the wall!
Hope the paperwork starts falling into place and you get that dossier shipped soon!

Love the paint, and that SHADE, and, of course, the fact that Bella said "freak out". Adorable. Wishing you luck and speed with the crazy paperwork. Definitely not for the weak! XO

Hi Jen, just stumbled across your blog. We met at Nicki G.'s house a few months ago. I am still waiting for news of a referral. It can't be long now right?!? Anyway, just thought I would say hi and hope to see you again soon.

love the chalkboard idea in the bathroom. As of right now we're working with Building AZ families but then they'll pass us on to Dove. Not totally sure how it works since this is our first int'l adoption but that's what we're told

Oh yeah, got our financial institution copies today so we are ready to turn it in. I'm ready to be done with all this paper work.
