This is our story....of love, life, and adoption

Wednesday, January 30, 2008


Don't you just wish that after all this time I would have some news for you all. Well I don't.

Been tired...tired of waiting and tired of the effects of all this infertility-waiting-adoption saga on our lives. Had to take a quick break, get over it, move on. DONE!!

So what have I been up to...

-Been working out, hard 4-5 days a week. The results. I have gained 6 pounds. I don't buy the muscle theory, nor do I buy the clothes fitting theory, because the scale is rising and my clothes are tighter then they were when I started.

-On the other hand, I am sleeping much better. I do honestly feel better, so I will give it some more time before I take other measures.

-Tried knitting. That sucked. Gave up knitting.

-Fell in love with one of my patients. I wish I could share pictures and the whole story, but let me just say that my heart was stolen. I am seriously considering pediatric oncology(when that is, a change in jobs wouldn't cost me money and paperwork)

-I'm a geek and looking forward to LOST tomorrow. Seriously please do NOT call me tomorrow during LOST. I will be mean.

-Seen on a church sign: HOPE: praying for rain.....FAITH: carrying an umbrella. So I decided it was time I carried my umbrella and started making something for OUR baby. Crocheting though not knitting...knititing is hard.

--Trying very hard to continue to carry my umbrella.

Considering how long it takes to knit or crochet's about time you got started. Speaking in faith- you may not even finish before baby comes home!

I do feel like a bit of a shmuck, though, since I was never any help gathering tips for knitting for you and Rebecca. I'll still do it, but you've already moved on, haven't you? :-( If you give it another go, a good online resource with free how-to video is

Can't wait to see what you crochet. For me, crochet is daunting and I'm a tad bit afraid of it.

waiting for referral

dont' give up on the knitting. take a class at a local shop. there are sooooooooo many cute things to knit. start with hats. I never could figure out crocheting. the patterns are a million words long. get a really cute umbrella and maybe some cute matching rainboots. splash those waiting puddles away.
