...because she suggested we just meet at Barnes and Noble! And why on earth would I argue with that? Stress free-biggest dilemma of the day is now what cute little outfit to put on Z (and getting out the door on time). I feel like I am getting away with something. Do you think she somehow reads my blog? Hmmmm...Now- tell me how I can have my cake and eat it, too. I still want those honey-dos done! And a great excuse for a new area rug in the living room. Quick- someone decide you just cannot get through the spring without coming to visit us in FL.

Again?!? Didn't I just do that? At first, these twice yearly visits were a welcome excuse to get some honey-dos checked off of the list. But at this point, with Shaun deep into building himself an office in the garage, and all of the chaos that goes along with that....I am stressing out. Can we become presentable in 3 weeks? Yes, I realize I make more out of this than the social worker does, but seriously- half of the toys from Christmas still haven't found a permanent place to call home. Trivial, yes, I realize it should be. But with all of the slowdowns...actually it seems to be more of a standstill...in Kyrgyzstan adoptions right now, I feel like a post-placement report is a chance to show the MOE what a wonderful thing a family can be for these children...and perhaps convince them to go ahead and do whatever it takes to let those little ones make the journey home. I just need to remember that what is important here is that the children who are home are thriving and learning and growing...not that they have a designer bedroom, right?

So, it's a big week here. Back to school for me. I am finally getting back to my teacher certification classes that I began before sweet Baby Z arrived home. I was only planning on half a semester off....oops. Ah, well, I wouldn't trade a moment of it. I am only taking classes one night a week, and daddy should be able to cover that most of the time, so everyone should be happy. I also have a special class scheduled this week...Awana Commander College 101. Looking forward to that.
New Year's goals anyone? Obviously, I am hoping to take a little time to further my own career goals this year. Aside from that- I am really hoping to get organized! Specifically- the office, the garage, and the master bedroom closet. Hmmm....perhaps I am reaching a bit :)
Oh, yes, and for K...the header is in fact from scrapblog. I didnt use a template, I started from scratch...upload pictures....select backgrounds and stickers...create...publish, export as a jpeg. Email me if you need more help. Love that site!
