I just found out that the Giants beat the Patriots. I'm not as big of a football fan as I used to be, but I thought the Patriots were going to win this one. With no news and being so far away I can't tell by the article that I read if everyone was happy with the outcome or depressed.
We met with our facilitator this morning and went to the notary office to get more paperwork done. It seems like things are moving along and we are making progress. We were able to visit with O today. M is sick. He was sleeping when we were there so we didn't get to see him today. The Director wasn't feeling well today either so we couldn't meet with her. We enjoyed our time with O. She is so happy about being adopted. We were able to have a nice conversation as our facilitator took us to a private room where we could relax and talk. We are really enjoying getting to know her. We were right by a classroom that appeared to be Kindegarten aged children. They were all at their desks writing and coloring. Those children were adorable.
When it was time to go we stood outside waiting for our cab to arrive and a group of kids came up to say hello(Natalie,Y was one of them). The sun was out today so there were kids in the courtyard. The children are nice and posed for a photo. They love seeing themselves on the digital camera.
Every meal is an experience. Breakfast today was a chicken breast stuffed with mushrooms - breaded and fried. Barley with potatoes. Of course bread and cheese at every meal. It was good, but alittle tough to choke down first thing in the morning. Most all of our meals have consisted of some kind of pork. Like ground pork in a flat pancake. Fried pork battered in bread. Pork sausage (not like you are used to). Pork patties. Pork Crepes. OK enough of the pig. The potatoes are outstanding! We had mashed potatoes, fried potatoes, potatoes in soup, potatoes in porridge. Potatoes are like you think they are........not scary. My system is working fine. Gotta go to dinner now. I'm sure it's some kind of pork and potatoes.
