June referrals .... 3.20.06!!

Referrals are on the way for families logged in 3.15.06 thru 3.20.06!! China has completed 6 days of referrals this month. Excited for all the Marching Pandas out there!

China referred up to 3.20.06 and we are 3.26.06 that means we are 7 days away!! I am shooting for an August referral. Maybe we'll get lucky and get in July????

We actually started getting the room ready for the little one. It's pretty shocking.

This room has served the purpose of a huge closet for many years, collector of misfit household items that we had no idea of what to do with. What should I do with such and such?? Just put it in baby girl's bedroom and we'll deal with it later. These things have either moved to another room, been donated or just thrown out.

The bedroom now looks like the scene from Dexter.

Plastic draped on the walls from the ceiling all the way to the floor, layers of plastic covering the floor.
The victim.... popcorn ceiling. All I can say is popcorn ceiling texture is the nastiest stuff and our house has plenty of it. Slowly it is vanishing room by room.

Yesterday J filled in the dimples on the ceiling and tonight I'll go in and sand all the rough areas out. I would hope I can continue with this rare spurt of motivation and at least start priming the ceiling tomorrow night so I can re-texture the ceiling on Thursday.

Took some before pictures... need to take some during this process and post some.
I hope we can get this done in two weeks. HA!!

Well here's the story.....

No new rumors floating around yet. Looked on my agencies web site and they believe the CCAA is starting to prepare to work on the next set of matches. They do not know the log in dates for the next group of matches at this time. I am thinking that the next batch won't come out until July. Really hope that is not true.

I REALLY need to start getting the room started for the baby. Normal everyday life just interferes with getting anything extra done around the house. Even if I have to skip cleaning this weekend to start be it. I am going to have a hard time with that one. Dirt and clutter, they are not a friend of mine. Just going to have to let it go.

Interesting Rumor out there.....

On RQ there is a rumor floating around out there that China is going to match the full month of March. Doubt this but would be exciting if it was true.
