Mmmm, I’m lovin’ it!

Scott and I are sitting outside McDonalds eating McFlurries 🙂  Actually, McFlurry and Big Mac and McNuggets are the only things in english, so our menu might be limited to those items when we decide to eat out.  the McFlurries are all KitKat flavor and you have your choice of syrup- caramel, raspberry, strawberry, or chocolate.  There is wifi internet here at McDonalds and Tatiana is working on getting it in our apartment.  So, we are not sure how the internet situation will be while we are here in Kharkiv.

Oh man, Scott is looking up the Buckeye score on his Ipod and he realized that they lost.  He might be in a bad mood the rest of the day!

Tatiana and Valentino picked us up this morning and took us grocery shopping.  We are pros at this thing now.  Most of the food is fresh, so people go to the store every couple of days.  The bread doesn’t have preservatives in it, so we’ve been warned that it molds easily.  It’s fun to buy fruit and vegetables at the store!  You take them to a scale and type in their UPC code and it prints out the weight and price that you stick on the bag yourself.  Also, grocery bags cost money at the store.  About 1 Ukrainian dollar, which is about 12 cents.

Nothing else really going on.  I think our apartment smells like old lady, but I really like how historic it looks.  A child is crying because they didn’t want to leave McDonalds, same as America!  Also, both times that we went to McDonalds, there has been NO seats, it’s a poplar place!

Tomorrow is the big day that we get to meet the little one.  Pray that things go smoothly, that the child is in a good mood, and that we can make the right decision!

    Haha, Hi Mel! I just got our internet to work here. Kharkiv is different as well. But the big pluses are that McDonalds and a grocery store are in close proximity. We wish you best of luck tomorrow, we are so excited for you! And we too can’t wait to see pics as all three of you as a family. Congratulations!
