Well, we FINALLY have new carpet! Hooray! And it only took 2 weeks! 72 hour installation, my foot. We have been living on concrete floors for quite awhile now and it feels wonderful to have carpet beneath my feet again. It also feels fabulous to have every thing we own back in its place and not crammed into the living room. Just getting from one end of the house to the other has felt, appropriately, like some sort of Olympic obstacle course. I should definitely win gold for not losing my mind or hurting myself. . But it’s over now and we’re almost back to normal! Because we’ll never be quite normal, though, we did have a little fun with our concrete and we left a few messages for future families to hopefully, one day, find. Here are a few pictures to prove what total nerds we are.
It seriously doesn’t take much to amuse us. P.S. We think we are hilarious.
But this is my favorite because, even though we won’t live in this house forever, this is where we will bring our children home and, because of that, it will always be a special place. And now we’ll always be here! Kind of.
I was also gonna post pictures of our brand new carpet and [A] and [G]‘s adorable new rooms but it’s dinner time and I’m hungry. And, as soon as [L] moves our mattress from it’s current home in front of the oven, I’m gonna make us some dinner so we can actually sit down and relax for a minute. So, pictures to come later!
P.S. We heard Monday that our embassy appointments have been requested. We still have not heard back so please pray that our date will be super, super, super SOON!
