Proud Mama of 2 Drama Queens

Saturday, July 19, 2014

My beautiful daughters were in a play at school this past weekend with a company that comes in and helps schools put together summer plays. My girls did an EXCELLENT job and made me laugh and enjoy the show. I couldn't be prouder of their talent! Now if we could keep their drama limited to the stage, I'd be in great shape! LOL

Looking Forward to...

Thursday, July 10, 2014

..making progress.

I have gotten my food more under control most days but it is still not what it should be. I'm more maintaining than anything. That'd be great if that was my aim, but it's not. I'll keep plugging away and baby stepping back to more exercise and better food choices.

Also, we finally got the meeting scheduled for the Child Presentation for the 2 siblings we're being considered for. It's several weeks out still but at least we finally got a date on the calendar! They're bringing a team of 5 up to our house for the meeting. Should be interesting.

    Just remember with baby steps: when the baby falls down it gets back up and tries again!!! Eventually it just walks without tripping and falling! Yay!

    Maintaining is not too bad when things get tricky. Good luck getting up in gears. emoticon emoticon

Impatient

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

That's me. Mayor of Impatientville.

I've been battling a mild cough and lost voice for 2 1/2 weeks with no improvement in sight. Of course, I haven't exactly been resting and trying to recuperate like I know I should. I'm Soooooo done with this. It's now just wearing me down. I don't really feel sick so it's more annoying than anything, but my throat is actually starting to hurt from the strain of talking in a whisper and trying to be hearable. Oh sure, I could try not talking….wait, NOPE. Can't do it.

Also, we finally heard back from the permanency consultant for the boys we're being considered for and they suggested 2 possible meeting dates, both of which we are out of town. Even those dates were several weeks away, so this could be even longer and more drawn out than the last wait for a meeting. BLAH! I am not feeling very patient right now when MUCH patience is required. I always just thank the Lord for the patience He gives me to make it through each day. Most days pass by so quickly I know I can handle the wait. I just don't LIKE waiting! lol

    I find that hot tea helps. My voice has been like that for almost a month. I used to sing in the choir at church but haven't been able to for about 1.5 years now because of the vocal strain from YELLING my class instructions all the time. Add allergies to that & I sound like a breathless Lauren Bacall. LOL All in God's time my dear friend. Will keep you & yours in prayer. Love ya

    Yeah, Lisa. I am getting some local honey from friends at church this next Sunday but all I have at home is store honey, so we'll see when I get it if it helps. Hope to feel better by then but who knows.

    Do you know what caused the flare up in your throat? Try adding some local honey to your daily diet...it helps with allergies which could be causing a post nasal drip (which can cause that nagging cough)...just a thought...feel better!

Taking it All in Stride

Monday, June 30, 2014

So long story short, we did NOT get placement of the little guy we met about last week. It turns out they went with the other family who has no kids in the home and they felt it would be better for the little guy to get all the attention for a while.

We were disappointed but not too much so since we're ultimately confident God has this all in hand. When our worker called with the news, she also had some potentially good news. The set of 2 boys we had been interested in previously are still available and when their worker found out we were still available, he was eager to set up a meeting with us. Those kiddos are from the far corner of the state, but their placement team wants to meet at our house. YAY! That means we don't have to drive all the way down there for their presentation meeting! That's very nice. I have been trying to get the house in better order and this will give me additional motivation to get to work on the INSIDE since I've been so focused on the outside the past couple weeks.

The meeting date isn't set yet since they have to coordinate several peoples' schedules (their permanency team for the boys) for the full day of driving up here (approx. 4-5 hours one way), meeting, then driving back. Then we have to make sure that works for our worker and us. Hopefully it will happen before Asher leaves for Boy Scout camp in less than 2 weeks because he'll be gone for 3 weeks straight. I'd hate for him to miss out on everything, but I know it'll all work fine. We're eager to move on and find the kids God has chosen for us.

Praise Him for knowing the end from the beginning!

    Sounds promising. I love how you take this long process in stride. The kids that finally make it home will be lucky indeed to have your family on their side.

Presentation Meeting

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Today was the meeting between us, our worker and the child's worker. It went well. We got additional information, asked our questions and they said they'll let us know which family they're going to go with by Monday afternoon.

DH and I decided we would accept the placement if they choose us. The child's "stuff" is stuff we feel we can deal with within our home. So now we wait. Only a few more days, though. I'll definitely keep everyone posted.
