What to say, what to say?
Tuesday, January 16, 2007
I've been struggling to come up with some things to post recently. First we're on the 2-3 month wait for reaccreditations to happen (our agency submitted their application on Dec. 25th so we should hear something in late February or March). Then there's just the fact that there's nothing too exciting going on in our lives right now.

The only thing of semi-interest that is going on right now is I have one of those activities that regrettably comes up every year. No, not jury duty, I got out of that last week.

No, I mean a birthday. I will be 43, which sounds kinda old but I really still feel like I'm 30ish (although my body often tries to remind me the correct chronological figure). And of course on the other end of the spectrum is that I act like I'm a 10 year old.

There is some good news this week. My mother-in-law is coming to visit us later this week and that will be nice. She's quite fun to be with (the typical mother-in-law jokes don't really apply to her). For one of her big birthdays a few years ago (I won't say which year) we all celebrated by partying in Las Vegas. Needless to say, she's pretty cool.

We haven't taken any vacations since we started the process last May so that Stef could save up as much vacation days as possible for when we get to bring Lil' G home. So it will be nice to see some family (nearly all our family members live in Southern California and Arizona).

    This reaccredidation thing is just taking forever! They should just give everyone a kid and be done with it. Forget the medicals, forget the accredidation, forget the 10 day wait... Just give us the children already!!

    Love, Mom
