Monkey Foot Mandarin

You guys are the best. Thank you for all your kind words and support. I took a sleeping pill last night and finally got a good night’s sleep so today I’m so much better. And I just got an email from my SW that she has to reschedule to Sunday morning due to a death …

Our home study is on Friday and I’m a nervous wreck. I’ve literally made myself sick over this. I’ve been throwing up for the past few days. I’m so nervous. Everything is riding on this one day, this one lady, this one opinion. This woman can make or break our chances to have a family. …

The techno geek in me is going insane. Why did all these cool new gadgets have to come out right when I couldn’t be more cash strapped with the adoption and all. I mean, my priorities are in line and I’m not out maxing out my Visa, but man, the temptation is there. First there’s …

GTC Yard Sale Results

The yard sale went great! We were up way too late Friday night putting out signs- we were delayed a bit by a friendly police officer. Then the alarm went off way too early Sat morning. I couldn’t believe I was up and dressed and dragging stuff out to the driveway before 6. Shannon arrived …

Til death do us part

I’ve decided that adopting is a lot like planning a wedding. You’re pledging to spend the rest of your life loving and caring for someone. A big trip is involved. A big party will be planned. Lots of pictures will be taken. Everyone has an opinion and must share it with you or else you’ll …

Witchy Woman

I finished reading the latest Harry Potter book recently and tonight Shannon and I were discussing it. I have questions. Don’t worry, I won’t spoil anything for any readers, these are general wonderings…– Why do they have to have a wand to do magic? If I were a wizard I’d want to be able to …

Just don’t put me in a home

So I’ve decided how I want to spend my golden years. After Jon dies I refuse to go into a home. I’ve decided instead to live out my remaining years on a variety of cruise ships. Turns out I’m not the only one with this idea. I mean, what more do you need? Great food, …
