Cookies or hot chocolate?
But back to October 1st. This also means the month of perpetual birthdays for my immediate and extended family. I was told not to marry someone with an October birthday. With a November birthday, the Good Doctor almost didn't pass inspection but managed to just squeak by. But then I produced 2 more October birthdays and adopted one. Oops.
The 1st of October means that I have now been home from Utah for a little more than 2 months and things are finally settling down. I say that in very general terms as things never really settle down for the King clan and I still have 4 piles of while-I-was-gone paperwork to complete (Yes, if you've been following closely you know that it used to be 3 piles. That would be correct but the piles have been multiplying even as I complete things that need to be done). And now that I've been home for a good while, it's time to start chipping away at that adoption debt again.
Our adopttogether account has slowly been inching up but since we don't like this hanging over our heads, it's time to get working again.
During the month of October we will be promoting sales of our cookies and hot chocolate packs. This would be a great time to send a care package to a college student. Let us do the work for you. Just send us the name and address and we'll do the rest. You can include a personal note if you'd like.
