From the Land Down Under

"He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich."

Men at Work: Land Down Under

After commenting on a string of posts by Mrs. C about her family's latest venture down Vegemite Lane, she offered to mail me some.

I, naturally, accepted. And it arrived today.

So, once we get some wheat-free bread made, we'll give this a "go" and see just how much I dislike it (all on video!). Definitely does not sound like something I would enjoy... but someone's gotta do the dirty work around here.

The new Costco opened by our house today.

So we went over.

They have Wiis.

So we bought one.

Total splurge item.


But Brittany is a gamer and has wanted one for a long, long time.

Medical Papers

We has them.

Medical Papers

Yep. We have finally submitted all of our papers for the homestudy... of course, over the couple of months it took to get everything together, we may have to resubmit a few papers with new information on them.

We knew we would need our medical papers notarized, but when we asked at Kaiser they informed us that our branch didn't have a notary.

Stuck again.

So while at morning prayer, I mentioned that I needed a notary for some paperwork. It turns out that one of my co-workers is a notary! We worked it out, and decided that Wednesday evening would work for everyone.

While Brittany and I were driving over, I realized that we hadn't discussed a meeting place. I quickly shot a prayer to heaven and said, "Please let us connect quickly and easily."

As we pulled into the parking lot, my co-worker pulled into the empty space one over from mine. The timing couldn't have been better.

We were able to drop off the papers the next day. Praise God!

And now the agency is pushing us to get our dossier done. Which is great. Perhaps by the end of the week we will be mostly done with the paperwork before us.

It would be great if we could do that!
