Spring break is over and I am bummed about that. It was a divine week and makes me long for summer break. Thankfully I know it is just around the corner. We all loved the relaxed pace of no school. I think my kids are pretty darn terrific and love to have them around!
I started to really feel a sense of urgency regarding the adoption last week after chatting with my new friend Dawne. Her dossier got to Ghana mid-February and she passed court last week. That's less than two months to a full adoption decree. Now all she has to do is file her I-600 and wait for visa/passport. That timeline seems absolutely impossibly crazy to me. Jeff has his medical this week which means we are just about done with our paperwork. We are hoping our dossier will get to Ghana by the first part of May which means by June we could have the adoption finalized and just be waiting for approval to travel. Did I mention I'm having a hard time wrapping my Haiti adoption mindset around that idea?
Of course upon the realization that June is quickly approaching I went into nesting mode. Friday night I started cleaning and organizing the basement. Then of course I decided I'd always wanted to paint the hideous paneling. Well then of course I had to paint the stairs. And clean some closets. And started getting ready for a garage sale. I was seriously like a mad woman and my muscles are screaming at me today. In between all that I also got a haircut, went to a birthday party and celebrated Easter.
Full blown nesting...bring on the crazy!
