Archived Post 2014 - Monday Moments

  • Hey look I came back, amazing I know.
  • Things continue to be super busy.
  • The kids  had a calmer week, well most of them did, which was good, calm is good.
  • Dealing with a teenager who rages and get violent is really more than I would like to deal with most days and considering that only happened once this week I call it calm.
  • The girl child can swear long and loud enough to make a sailor blush, she did some of that this week too but it's nothing like it used to be.
  • I am dealing with some super annoying and exhausting auto-immune issues and would really prefer that I just sail through life perfectly healthy because it would make things so much easier.
  • Winter is still here and if this damn snow doesn't leave soon I am going to explode. I need to be outside and I need more sun.
  • I have managed to convince work to give me the summer off so I do not have to deal with finding childcare, this is a really good thing for everyone involved.
  • I am looking super forward to a 2 week vacation is Massachusetts this summer and some time with some of my dearest friends camping with all of our small people in tow.
  • I am quickly running out of minutes on my parking meter and my coffee cup is empty which says to me that it is time to get moving.
  • I've missed this space, I am excited to back into the swing of things but it might take some time before I come up with anything other than posts like this.

Archived Post 2014 - But I wanna

I wanna be blogging but there is just so much to do everyday and there are just not enough hours.... wah.

But I miss this, I miss writing, I need and want to make time to do it. I am going to try really hard to make time. It might not be often and it might not be great but it will be done.

We are all alive, we have come through some rough patches with the kids who continue to grow and change even thought I keep asking them to stop getting so darn big. Those small smiling boys in my header photos have deep voices, pimples and often smell like teenagers. The small girl child is still small although she is rapidly getting bigger and stronger and will not be be a little girl for long.

Life is always busy, this week someone got busted for smoking at school and let me assure you it was not Kate. Work is good and I am thrilled to be snuggling babies all day, they are a great way to start people off. My kids  (who come to work everyday after school)  like them too and it is good for them to see what little people need to develop and it gives us a chance to talk about some of things they missed. I love the schools the kids are at and am happy that we made the choice to deal with the driving so that they could go to better schools that could meet their needs.

I have working on lots of post adoption support pieces and that is one of the many reasons I feel the need to be blogging, people are still reading here, still looking for answers and I feel that those of us who are walking on this path might as well be doing it together. So I am going to try to write, to vent and use this as a place where adoptive parents can be reminded that they are not alone

We are alive and we are well enough. We will get up tomorrow and start again.
