Just a little tinkering with decorations
Thursday, October 26, 2006
Although there was no new news on the status of Government Decision No. 268. The prognosis is still that it is imminent but that could just as easily mean any day now or any day within the next several weeks. Remember we're talking about a government agency and the words alacrity and celerity do not exactly go hand in hand with their work tempo.

Back to our favorite store Costco, as stated before all the holiday stuff is out on the shelves already and we found some cool little decorations for Lit'l G's room. Side note, we were having issues with the various words we were referring to our future currently unknown inhabitant and most of the phrases (like the one I just used) sounded pretty impersonal, so we've started to just refer to he/she as "Lit'l G".

Anyway, so we picked up a nice big Pooh rug and two squishy pillows as seen below. The rug we had gotten earlier was just too small for the room so we moved it into the bathroom. We have a couple of other minor things to do. First we want to refinish a little nitestand table (in a cool purple color that goes with the Disney Pooh theme colors we picked). Also we had wanted to put a small easel in the room to display a painting our friend and fellow adopting parent Lauren did for us but we're afraid that's just an accident waiting to happen and may just frame it for now and put it up above small (but often curious) arm's reach. -- Here's a link to the painting Lauren did for us --

    I love the big rug! I want to see the painting that Lauren made - or does it have Lit'l G's real name on it or something? Lauren is so talented!
