So, I have some adoption updates. We sent our gigantic packet of paperwork off on Saturday and it's now getting ready to travel to Seoul so they can start to file all of Eunie's Korean paperwork. Our "legals" are being FedExed to us and we should have them tomorrow. Legals are legal paper or something. Something "legal." Honestly, I'm not sure what they are. There are a lot of papers in an adoption. Anyway, those things mean that we can probably say our countdown to travel is about 4 months or so. That is based in nothing scientific. I looked at some time frames on the internet and guessed but I'm pretty confident in that guess. That means that there's a good chance she'll be home before her first birthday. It also means that Jeff and I will have made this trip twice now at nearly the exact same time. We traveled in mid-December last time and my calendar tells me the same for this one. SO WEIRD! Thankfully we'll get to experience the joys of the holiday season in Korea. It's both bizarre, like the creepy animatronic not-quite-Santa in the market, or gorgeous like the perfectly decorated rice cakes I was drooling over the whole time.
Anyway, this also means I have to get my ass in gear and get my house in some kind of shape before she comes or else it'll never happen. I started taping the foyer for stripes and should have that finished by Sunday. I'll post pics. I'm going to be a painting machine for the next couple months. I'm also shutting down the cakes for a while. It was getting too big. Maybe someday. Anyway, I don't have time because I'm too busy buying crap like this:

What the hell? I couldn't resist the little frog feet. I can't handle all these cute little girl clothes! We also picked up some gear. This is a sit and stand stroller. This this is bigger than my car and I'm not exactly sure how you even work it. Max is obsessed with it as you can see. Eunie will ride in the front. I think I need a class C license now.

I'll come help you paint before your kid comes home if you'll come help me paint before my kids come home.

To sweeten the deal, I'll bring booze. For the kids. Or us. Whichever.
