Keeping up


Somehow over the weekend laundry doubles, dirty dishes sneak to odd places in the house and the list of things to do is longer than ever.

I hate mondays. I'm sitting here typing trying to get up the energy to face a mountain of tasks.

maybe more coffee will help.

Almost a year ago I wrote that the judge ordered TPR and Adoption for Choo Choo's case. Today the day is here. Choo's parents Termination of Parental Rights Trial is today. (deep breath)

As a foster parent days like today are nerve wrecking. On one hand I'm praying the judge will let Choo finally have some permanancy after almost two years in care. I'm praying that finally my son can become, my son. On the other hand I know that this is the day that his parents, who do care for him very much, lose their son. As a daughter that breaks my heart. As a mom that breaks my heart.

Rolling Along

We're still rolling along here.

My mom went home to her house and had some complications with her blood pressure so she is back here with us so we could keep a closer eye on her. She's never been one to sit still and she's ready to go home again. Her follow up with the surgeon is today.

Winter break is over today....yeah for school! Having all three home together is a constant fight over toys, tv, chairs....everything. Someday they will love each other right? Right?

I'm pouring over my new seed catalogs and dreaming of better weather. I ordered Johnny's Seeds catalog for the first time. I'm in many varieties, so many pictures.....ahhhh.
