* We are thinking of hosting a child from Latvia for some time this summer. They would most likely be available for adoption, but we'd play that by ear and see how it goes. The only thing in the way currently is that we will be in Florida at the time they are to depart, so I'm checking to see if there's any way they could possibly travel back with a group out of FL.
* Olivia will be going by herself for her first time to visit her grandparents in Florida. She does SO MUCH for me, all the time, I really struggled to find a way to honor that in her. I didn't want to just "buy" her something. My parents have spoken in the past about wanting the kids to visit when they were old enough, and I thought now would be a great time for Olivia to do just that. I broached the subject and my mom was THRILLED. Our trip this summer won't be until mid July, so Olivia will be going for a few days after school in the beginning of June. Of course I think I did make a mistake though in telling her now, as that is ALL that we here about! LOL :)
* The four year old boy in Indiana still does not have a forever family chosen. I am anxiously awaiting news, but think I most likely won't hear if we're not the ones chosen.
* Still no news on the house or job. I just wish I knew what we would be doing. I am tired of living in "house selling" mode. I am tired of saying "That's packed" as we packed up a bunch to declutter the house. I am tired of not seeing all of our family photos as we removed them to make the house as non-specific as possible. I want to get a dog, for the kids right, and yet don't want to get one when we're trying to sell our house and had told the kids we'd get one when we moved. And I am tired of waiting to find out. :) Come on, God, just TELL me!!! :)
* A great friend and I are planning a trip in early August to celebrate (or should that be bemoan) my turning 40 this summer. We are going to fly to Vegas, leaving my kids with my parents while I'm gone, and possibly stay a day or two at the Grand Canyon as well. I've never been to Vegas and thought that would be a great one to do with no kids, and the GC has always been a dream of mine and is in driving distance. So.... I did pick up this dress on clearance to wear "out" on the town... what do you think???
