Well it's a work in progress

And boy does it need alot of progress! But my brain doesn't get HTML or anything technical related to buttons, headers, backgrounds. And so on. I have developed an eye twitch from working on this blog background and header!

But I have good news! I know the paperwork I sent made it to a far away land - well I know someone picked it up. That's about it. Apparently, UPS places a 24 automatic HOLD on all things being shipped to that area. Would have been nice to know in the very beginning. I am learning to keep a secret stash of chocolate for emergency situations.

Bakers semi-sweet just doesn't cut it.

More good news, our first home study appointment was yesterday and it went really well. I think. I hope. I pray. Except that SOMEONE involved in this adoption ( great idea husband) ate chili at 7am for breakfast. With jalapenos. 
Our social worker seems very nice and supportive. Especially considering I FORGOT my checkbook to make the first payment for the home study. Our home visit will be near the end of the month and then we will just have our individual appointments left! And we have to also factor in waiting for all the background checks to come back. Hurry up and seems to be a common theme.
You know, a person is never supposed to pray for patience right? Instead, I am asking for prayers of support and that God will continue to open doors.
AND if we meet a closed door we will be fully able to accept that.

I want to say THANK YOU to those who have donated! I know first hand from working with non-profits that every little bit helps...
We are so very thankful and want everyone to know your generosity is amazing to us.
Have a blessed weekend in the South we are expecting more snow!

I think it has to do with the size of background that you choose. And bc we are both using ShabbyBlogs, I would think it should be the same. I know that I remember seeing somewhere that you can choose how much of the middle shows (how wide the white part is). I just changed my background and it is still covering the sides. Try a new background just to see. Sorry I am not much help. btw..where is Sveta? You can email if you need
