Catching Up.

June 15, 2012

Right now, I’m in the car headed home. I have a WordPress app I use to blog from my phone. We spent the past week in Colorado visiting family, celebrating my little brother getting married to someone we all love, and having a memorial service for the boys.

As I write this, Bella is babbling behind me about “Mama and Daddy get back WHEEEEE” (no idea), Sam is driving, and we’ll be stopping in a couple of hours to eat on the border of Colorado and New Mexico at a place he picked out last night (He never picks so this is a big deal). I’ve got an iced coffee next to me that is so sweet I can barely drink it. :/ This makes me stabby. I adore a good iced coffee.

This week, I learned working from home is a lot easier when you’re actually at home. But I made do with limited Internet and here are some of my ramblings on Babble:

Joy and sorrow: some of my thoughts about handling my grief and adoption.

Paper Pregnant: I think this term is adorable. By the time this is over, I’ll have a “pregnancy” about as long as an elephants.

Let’s have a stranger judge us: I’m talking about the homestudy process; tips others have told us, things I learn as we go through, and what it all means to have a social worker decide if you should parent a child. Everyone who adopts (domestic or international) has to do one of these. I promise it’s not as bad as it sounds. And very un-judgy. 😉

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I’ll be doing a obscene amount of laundry and scrubbing up kitty barf from the carpet.

It’s their way of punishing us for leaving them with a pet sitter.

    Ugh to the kitty barf. Dealt with that recently as I was bundling up dirty bedding from the preschooler being sick in the early morning. Did the cat think we needed to sync our sickness? 😉

    Hooray for going home! And the man picking the place to eat! Hee hee.

    May your weekend be full of blessings! 🙂

    Why oh why do such sweet, lovable animals have to produce so much barf all the time?!?!? I just don’t get it. I’m glad you will be back home soon and I will be heading over to Babble now to check out your posts. I hope you have a nice weekend too!
