Why 268 hasn't been signed yet..
Saturday, November 04, 2006
Since Steve keeps posting about taxes and other non-fun stuff, here's my top ten list of reasons why 268 hasn't been signed yet...

10. The adoption gods want me to have the lifebook started (have all the stuff, just haven’t done anything yet)

9. Traveling now would fit in well with my work schedule

8. We don’t have enough winter clothes so will need to spend more money on stuff we probably won’t use more than once

7. Our ballet season tickets came in and we have great seats, so we’ll probably need to change at least one date and get not as great seats
6. Our football team (go Niners) is playing so bad right now we wish we could be far, far away so we wouldn’t have to watch them loose so badly

5. We’re missing out on buying cool toys for Christmas (of course at Costco and more shopping)

4. We should be learning more Russian (yep, still on lesson 5)

3. It gives me an opportunity to irritate Steve by sending links to all the Disney stuff we could buy for Lil’ G’s room

2. Chianti really wants to continue to monopolize our lives so has been calling the Russian authorities (and running up a huge phone bill)

And the number one reason is ...

1. It’s not cold enough in Siberia (yet)

I really believe number 1 - realize I've seen snow maybe a total of 20 days my entire live, I really, really don't do well in cold weather (or hot weather either) and am living in California for a reason.

    As I said yesterday, I try to read your blog every day but just when I didn't check for a few days then you wrote a new blog every day and even mentioned me. I like your ten top list, Stefanie. I'm sure you would rather buy a few more warm clothes than have to wait a few more months. I am getting anxious to buy toys for Christmas too.
    I noticed it is a few degrees colder in Siberia than in was last time I checked. Maybe it is getting cold enough.
    Good Luck, Love, Mother

    Love the top ten list. I can't even imagine how cold it is going to be when we go back for trip two. Our last few days on trip one were plenty cold and we saw a little snow. Fun, fun, fun!

    Love your list. I'm stuck on lesson 2 learning Russian. :o(
