And while we are in the clouds.....the reality is that we are back to WAITING. A NEW kind of waiting. Waiting for our court date. Which....will probably be sometime after the rainy season. UGH. (more on that in another post).
This stage in the adoption process is the HURRY UP and WAIT stage. Hurry up because you never know...we just may be the exception to the rule and get a court date with lightening speed and so WE NEED TO BE READY!
Aside from the fact that being prepared is a GOOD THING....The best way I know to WAIT is to keep busy.
So, I'm back to keeping
Aside from the normal, day-to-day to do's ....
I've got a list of things to do in baby girl's room, a list of gear and clothing we need for baby girl, a list of things I would like to get done around the house, a list of fund-raising projects, (ie: t-shirts, a potential car wash, a cut-a-thon and possibly yet another garage sale?)... I've got a list of things to get done in my studio/my online store, and or course...I've got a list of things to do before we can travel and soon...(like today) I will have to start a packing list as well. YIKES!
And OH.... YES!!!! (Although it's not on any of my lists.) Let's not forget...our biggest TO DO is....to remember to enjoy the journey! AND breath...(in through the nose and out through the mouth.) Seriously, it helps.
