adoption progress: we have no news.
Mrs. N called yesterday, and today, to say they are waiting for any new information. We adore our agency and their desire to keep our minds at bay to the best of their ability. I know she will call me daily, even to say "hey, it's Mrs. N, checking in with no news.." Then we'll chat a bit and I'll ask her any questions rolling around in my head; but, the assurance her phone call brings, even with 'no news' is important. First, I love to chat with her, she's a breath of fresh air AND she really cares about our family. She loves her some Piatts ;) and I truly believe she's anxious for the day we get our 'yes' as well! What a blessing to be partnered with Hope Cottage. Second, after her phone call we can relax the rest of the day. I don't stare at the phone hoping it will ring! She called, no news, okay-move on to the rest of my day....
In honor of passing time and recovering from a little cold :/--today involved wonderful relaxation. Don't judge me, I'm treating this time as my last moments before entering into motherhood. I'm ready, but don't think I'm totally naive to the drastic changes a child brings to our life. I say to that "bring it on"... until then, here's what my wednesday entailed:
- Sleep in as late as possible- check
- Wear one of Jake's softest t-shirts- check
- Brush teeth-check
- Brush hair--- not so much.
- Eat soup and leftovers my mom brought over (no cooking/cleaning)-check
an appropriate amount of episodeshours of Saved by the bell... check check
Thanks to Netflix, I'm streaming all 99 episodes.
Don't act like you aren't singing the theme song in your head RIGHT now!...
