Life as an adotive Mother.

Life gets busy and you forget to sit down and breathe.  Or write in my case as well. I tried my hand at writing on blogs that I got paid for, but those turned out to be a bust.     So anyone who is still around and reads this will find out...

Busy is an understatement!

The last time I wrote was Feb 27th.  That to me seems like an eon ago!   My Life has become so busy that sometimes it feels like I don't even know what to do with myself!  My life seems to have to be scheduled these days.  We have started our...

Something to report!

So for those of you who have been following along with our journey you would know that we are looking in to being a kin family for my cousins' baby.     Well tonight we had our first meeting with the kin care social worker.  Today I was so...

Tick Tock Tick Tock.....

The waiting game continues!  Have had contact with CCAS regarding the kin care case, e-mail has been sent and looks like our first meeting will be sometime next week.  Still waiting to hear back with a definite time.     CAS - WHERE ARE...

I will count this one as practice....

So after waiting weeks, I got the phone call.  Well not THE phone call, but one I have been waiting for.  I will just count this one as practice.   It was a message, it always happens I go to the washroom and bam!  A phone call comes in.    So I...

The Waiting continues.....

I am now in a position of being lost and not knowing how to proceed.  Life is no longer what I used to know, sure I live in the same place, same house same husband and same 3 cats.  When I look around all seems normal, and in the right spots but it...

Applications - done, sent, and received.

Wow!   Seriously what a process that was!  I had to fill out the Application Registration form.  My goal was to get it in within a week of receiving it from CAS after the meeting on January 15th.  I had it completely done in the week deadline,...

The Busy life has begun!

Ok so a little peeved that my last post from before I left for Florida didn't show up.  It had the picture of the letter of invitation we had received from our local CAS.   So that whole post never came to light, and that makes me a little bit...

A little over a month to go!

I knew I wouldn't be able to post a lot over the last little bit, because honestly not much to do with adoption has been happening in my life.  But now with only a little over a month to go before The adoption meeting with CAS, things are looking up! ...

Too long in between posts!

I will admit, my goal has definitely not been reached on keeping up with this blog.  But to be honest there isn't anything happening really on the adoption front that would cause me to write.   But just so everyone knows (not that I have a ton...

31 is coming to an end.

It is funny when you think about it how we are measured by our age.  Age is a number that will forever follow us and always consume our thoughts as we come upon the next one.  That number makes us feel old, it makes us feel too young and it can also...

Bad Bad Me!

What an open ended subject heading.  Or so it seems like for me.  Maybe fitting is the right word.   Bad bad me?  Why you might ask?  Well lets see it has been way too long since I have written in here.  Bad Bad me!  I have been made feel in the...

A Revelation!

So this weekend was supposed to be a technology free weekend for my husband and I to spend some quality time together and just relax for our Anniversary weekend.  October 1 - we have been married for 8 years.  And here I am on Sunday night posting....

Has Anyone missed me?

I have been missing for quite awhile now.  So much for sticking to my goal of writing every day.  That certainly didn't last!   I have been so busy organizing and putting together the garage sale that I haven't had a minute to breathe let alone...

12 years ago

12 years ago one of the most horrific and tragic events of our lives unfolded as we sat by and watched our tvs with tears in our eyes feeling useless and scared.  At the time I was living in Alberta and remember waking up to commotion in the house I...

The Busy just get busier

I missed another day of writing.  Oops.   I do have good reasons so please don't put me up against the firing squad just yet! *laughs*   Not that I think it really matters, I don't think a lot of people read my blog anyway.  It doesn't get...

Rainy Rainy Day.

It is miserable out there.  Gray skies and raining.  Bleh.  But sometimes I love the rain, it is so soothing and gives you that out to be as lazy as you want.  Not that I didn't get some chores done today and more work done for the Garage sale lol....

Now just time to wait!

So last night I couldn't sleep.  No matter what I tried I just couldn't do it.     My brain was working against me big time!  Every time I went to fall asleep my brain would scream out "NO DON'T SLEEP!"  You are going to miss your alarm, you...

A lot longer than we thought

So I decided today was the day to go through all the donations, weed out the bad and un-sellable and start to seperate them put them in boxes to keep them neater and price them.  I don't do things like regular people.  For me this includes writing...

Turning 16

I don't really remember being 16.     I know it was the worst birthday of my life, as no one remembered.  I remember living in Newfoundland Canada, and being miserable.  After I moved back to Ontario I don't really remember it.  Now I look back...

Been Wondering

So today I am having a pretty good day!   I woke up this morning and decided that even though my allergies have been driving me nuts I went for a walk to a local grocery store and the library.  I am paying for it but it was good.     I...

So much amazing in my life right now.

You know, I consider myself to be very lucky right now.  I mean I could hit the lottery lucky, oh wait I already did.  I won the lottery of people in my life.  I seriously couldn't ask for any better right now.  Of course I have those people who yes,...

Couple of days late on posting.

Ok yup.....life happens.     It has been a mix of emotions the last couple days.  Nothing really about adoption even though I notice that no matter what topic that comes up lately it always turns into adoption.     Allergies this year have...

How to choose?

So I had this dream last night.    I dreamt of my child.  I didn't get to see a distinct face or anything like that but I could tell for sure it was a boy, now does this stem off of my one entry where I said I didn't have anything in common with...
