yeah yeah I know! I can't complain because I'm getting exactly what I wanted..... but it doesn't change the fact that part of me is a tad disappointed.... What, you have no idea what I'm talking about? Sorry!
This is the entry where I explained why I was hoping NOT to receive Sprout's referral in this "October" batch, because it would have made it likely we would go to China in December, which is really not a good time when you own gift stores that do most of their business for the year in that period.... So I actually went on the record as saying I wanted to skip this batch and be in the next one... But this "October" batch became a November one, and the cut off date is for people with Aug. 25th LIDs (that the date your file is logged in at the Chinese government). So we are not in, and we won't get our referral until late November or early December, which means late January travel, or possibly late February, as noone goes to China to adopt during the Chinese New Year.
So I'm regretting my words and wishing I had been in this batch.... but hey, I should have just kept quiet!
G.A. viewing party at my house tonight, if you happen to want to join me and the store staff for vino and cheese! And Sprout's room will be unveiled next week sometime, I promise!
