When I find something I like I must share. Sharing is caring right? First I want to sing the praises of Kodak Easy Share Gallery. For each holiday that I send out a pug card I shop around and find coupon codes and choose the cutest card for the best price. Price usually wins. This Halloween there wasn't much to choose from that was cute or a new design. I ended up going with Kodak as I had a coupon code for 20% off and they had the cutest card. Well, time gets away from me. So it was Wednesday before Halloween before I even took the pugs' pictures. We had our photo shoot around noon, I ran upstairs and uploaded the photos and ordered the cards. Lo and behold if my order wasn't sitting outside my door the very next morning at 9:30am! Now, I did pay a couple dollars extra for quicker shipping, but I didn't spring for the priority get it to me in 12 hours service! I couldn't believe it. So Thursday I was able to address and send out all the cards and most of them made it to their destinations by Halloween and I still looked like I was all organized and prepared for the holidays! Speaking of, if you'd like a pug card sent to your home email me your address and I'll put you on the list! The next card will be for Thanksgiving. I'll be including an adoption update with the card. But the bottom line of this story is that Kodak rocks.
Secondly, but firstly in my heart AWWW!, I really appreciate all of you who read my blog. I started blogging in August 2001 as an easy way to journal. I never imagined the fun I would have or the people I'd meet or the friends I'd make. You guys rock. Thanks so much for leaving comments and sending emails and letting me know you're out there.
Thirdly? Thirdly sounds weird, but I guess that's the word. Back to picture taking. I want to share with you guys this link. Click here and sign up with dotphoto.com and you'll get 100 free prints. I ordered mine last night so we'll see how they turn out. I ordered 110 4x6 prints and 2 5x7 prints and with shipping it was only $5.88. Not a bad deal chickopees.
#4: Adoption news! It seems that CCAA - China Center for Adoption Affairs- is estimating that it will now take around 12 months from LID to travel. Meaning, we should have our dossier finished and sent off to China by February latest. It had been taking about 6-7 months for a referral from the time dossiers are logged in (LID). Then you travel 6-8 weeks after that. Well now it looks like we may not get to China until 2007. I was bummed at first but there's nothing I can do. It's totally out of my control so there's no use whining and crying. I'd like to think that it may mean a better chance of us getting twins. I do know it means we have a few extra months to save money and get the house ready and throw wild parties and whatnot. It just seems like such a long time before our girls come home.
5: I didn't want to end on a sad note. So here's a Yo Mama joke: Yo mama so stupid she put a peep hole in a glass door.
