Life Goes On

As we continue waiting to adopt, life moves on.

Yes, there are still moments when the phone rings and my stomach lurches, but they are few and far between.  I won't deny that, the longer the wait, the harder hope is to hang on to.

But I have not given up!  Recently I have been thinking about tweaking our Dear Birthmother letter and making it more reflective of my heart, and less of a history write-up of ourselves.  Also, a few times a week I work on our baby room.  We are renovating our house ourselves, and what I've been doing is tearing wallpaper off the walls of the baby room.  It's a chore to say the least, but every strip torn off makes me feel like I'm that much closer to bringing Baby home :)  Also, this week we are going to be attending, for our first time, a support group at our agency for waiting adoptive parents.

Hubby taking a pause during renos.  This is looking from the living room to the wall of the baby room.  We are widening one closet into a nook for our computer desk; this will make the baby room closet slightly smaller.
Besides renos, what else has 'everyday life' looked like for me lately?  Well, I have been reading a very good book about friendships.  I am learning a lot about myself and how to do friendships better in the future.  Also, I've been working on a system to prioritize how I spend my days.  I don't want the little time that God has given me go to waste doing unimportant things.  Important things to me, that I want to do every day, are one-on-one time with God, one-on-one time with my husband, doing housework, scrapbooking, going outside for fresh air/exercise, and the list goes on.  Checklists work for me to get into good habits, so I'm leaning towards doing something like that.   

Perhaps one day I will write a series of blog posts on friendships.
