One of my favorite teacher blogs titles all of her posts with lines from songs. I wish I was that creative… First, someone go show love to Prabha. She and her hubby traveled 8 hours yesterday thinking they would bring home their baby, but instead returned home empty-handed. I think that is every pre-adoptive parent’s… Continue reading And We Will Wait…
No news yet! Well, no birth news. I think I’ll chalk that last post up to a wicked mix of feelings: the final two-week stretch (which I hear from everyone is the worst, second only to the hospital wait), PMS, holiday blahs, stress… I still feel like I’m swimming through tar and can’t quite “get… Continue reading Nope…Not Yet!
How many more days until January 9? Why am I totally nesting? I mean, seriously…laundry load after laundry load…relining all the kitchen cabinets…rearranging rooms…cleaning…crying over things that don’t stay clean very long (courtesy of the mega-shedding dogs)…re-rearranging rooms…rearranging dresser drawers…cleaning out closets….making list after list… Why am I so moody? Why can’t I sleep? How… Continue reading Can’t Think of a Title…
About a month ago I decided to try to keep myself busy until Scooter gets here. Who knew it would leave me exhausted and SUPER busy. I have a ton of posts boiling away in my head, but when I get home at night I’m too tired to formulate thoughts! We are at 35 weeks… Continue reading Who Knew?
Seriously…these are random!! I have the urge to nest: clean & rearrange the kitchen, sterilize the bottles & nipples & pacifiers I’ve gotten, launder all the gender-neutral clothes, spend my gift cards I got at the shower. I also have the adoptive-mommy fears: if I do those things, the adoption will fail, so I may… Continue reading Today’s Random Thoughts
I must say I am sorry – I have been on sort of a downer kick lately. It’s been a stressful few weeks for a number of reasons, and I tend to just put everything out there when I blog. But I hope to change that trend. So…today? Happy baby stuff! First, mega congrats to… Continue reading Happy Baby Stuff!
I’m not sure I can handle this. Yet again I’m not pregnant. I know I won’t be pregnant, ever. But why must I be reminded so painfully every month. And for about a week, I have no good emotions. I waver between exhausted and angry to scared and sad. We met with our social worker… Continue reading What if I Can’t?
The Baby, that is. That’s ALL I think about. I have to meet with my principal tomorrow (simple monthly meeting) and I’m going to have to tell her that I can’t hardly concentrate because all I can think about is Baby and that I’m going to be a mommy in less than 12 weeks. Do… Continue reading It’s ALL I Think About…
It’s definitely a boy!!!! I should be writing my message for the chapel service I’m doing at school tomorrow, but instead, here I am on blogger. We got a letter from our lawyer today. Actually, the letter is from S, sent to us via the lawyer. Enclosed were ultra.sound pi.ctures. I am crying massive tears… Continue reading Tears and Fears
We find out tomorrow if we’re having a boy or a girl. We are SUPER excited. It’s terribly difficult to name a baby. How come no one ever talks about that? We’d like to at least narrow it down to a gender!!! So check in tomorrow…there will be an announcement 🙂 By the way, S… Continue reading Update!!!!
