Oh hello! I forgot this thing doesn't write itself. It's been a bit busy around here which is why I've been absent. I decided that since we got screwed on the whole "go get the kid" thing, I would use my pent up frustration in a more productive way. Thus, our home project extravaganza is on. OH IT'S ON. I'm not going to post pics just yet (BOO) because it's all in shambles but I will show a little before and after teaser of our kitchen, mid-construction. We are still replacing the countertops, sink/faucet combo and we're installing a stainless steel backsplash but this is how far we got this past weekend.


This is what we did over the weekend.

I've also painted the dining and living rooms, plus both kid's bedrooms but those are ALSO still in shambles so you'll see pics soon. We're doing some entertaining for the holidays so we have a deadline of Dec 17. Our next undertaking will be the bathrooms, but those wait until next year.

Aside from that, the only other interesting thing I have to report is that Max got his very first school photo taken! It's just his little preschool thing but still, it's totally cute. Obviously I'm a tiny bit biased but I'm pretty sure it was the cutest one in the entire school.

This blows.

So, we got our official word that Eunie will not be home until next year. They issued their final permits yesterday and we were not among the lucky ones. We were told they will resume in January and considering people that got their referrals as close as 15 days before us got their EP yesterday, I'm hopeful we're in the first group. Either way, she won't be home until probably early February.

Yes, this sucks and I would love to spout off a string of profanities that would make a hardened criminal blush but I will spare you. So now you know. Yes, we will miss her birthday but we're going to send her presents and I'm sure looking at pictures of your kid's first birthday is just as good as being there, right?

New Pictures!

So, we didn't get any news about EP (wah wah) but we did get new pictures of Eunie today!! She's getting big and is still rocking a mohawk but she's so cute I don't care. I just wanna squeeze the hell out of those cheeks!

It's hard to tell but she's a wee tiny thing, only 16lbs, so that bunny probably isn't as terrifyingly life sized as it looks. Good lord, that's the most depressing bunny I've ever seen. Run Eunie, run away from the bunny!
