Things are going well. Bear is 100% back to himself which makes Mommy and Daddy feel 100% better. I think someone gave him the dose of the Love Bug too. He is all over Mommy and Daddy lookin' for Love! He hasnt been this affectionate in such a long time, and it sure is nice.
I cant help but wonder if we arent whirling around like 2 tornadoes trying to make sense of all this paperwork and get things done that we have not been giving 100% to our bambinos. I hope that's not the case. But in the event that it is, I have vowed with my One Item a Day for Peter, that I Dont forget the Little Things with our Thing 1 and Thing 2. So, after I busted out the Yahoo calender of events including work, therapy, my Item a Day(which you can read about on Peter's adoption blog), I am including time for the kids, for my husband and myself...I know that if I dont do this, it will all fall to the wayside. I sometimes get tunnel vision when I am working on a project and I need to learn to not do this, especially now with my family in tow.
Ive already penciled in a day at the park and hopefully a day at the Zoo, if weather is permitting. We bought a year pass to the Zoo which pays for itself in one visit, and I intend on using it. Im trying to think of other things to do with the kids. I may check into the library and see when story time is.
I knew it was a problem when I turned in my work schedule and forgot to ask off for the Saturday for Lilah's first Birthday party! Doh! Luckily I was able to get it off with no problems, but still. If I am forgetting the things for my kiddos then I know Im not doing anything for myself, and I know that all spirals downhill quickly...so the buck stops here. We also have PJ and movie night scheduled with my Pearland group and Mom's night out(which will be great!). Now I have to finish planning Lilah's birthday party. Im thinking something small. I have found if the party is smaller, Mommy gets to enjoy herself and gets to be in some of the pictures.
Blogging is also one of those little things I have to NOT forget to do :) We are still trying to raise the rest of the money to get Peter home. I think the grand total is $16, 257, which only leaves about $3700 to go! I know we can do it. Sometimes I feel like I need a 2nd me, but that might scare my husband.
OH, and need lots of positive thoughts and vibes...Daddy-O has an interview today. We have kind of quit announcing interviews because as promising as they seem they just dont seem to work out, so its hard for us to get excited now. We kind of get excited on the inside and just wait and see. So if you all could get excited for us, that would be great! I will be forgoing some sleep today in the middle of the day, but its definately worth it.
Well, thats it for now. Hope everyone has a great day and is also following us on our adoption blog, which you can get to by clicking on the link at the top of this blog, right under the ultrasound picture of Kai.
