Today I spent 4 glorious hours talking my head off with an old friend. We don't see each other often and it's always great to catch up. I've been following her blog for a couple of years and she had no idea I even blogged!!! I invited her to step into my crazy!! She is officially the only person I "know" who reads my blog!!! (We sooo should have taken a pic together so I could post....but I didn't even think of it!!!!) So here are some high school shots...she may never speak to me again!!

(My 'fro - life pre Chi was hard!!)
We got our adoption packet in the mail yesterday!! It is full of basic information and includes a checklist of things to expect on the road to adoption. We will have several inspections...so I now have less than two weeks to work on the big projects I've been putting off for too long. I have a spare bedroom with 8 years of crap piled up. I mean, seriously piles and piles. It's where everything goes to die. So, that's number one on my list. I now have some awesome motivation to get my booty in gear!!!
And I will leave you with a warm and fuzzy. I'm a Christian. I've belonged to the same church my whole life. BUT, I don't go. We Baptists call it backsliding. I haven't been to church in two years. But my great aunt was telling our pastor about our situation and he put us on the prayer list and then prayed with her for my family. I also finally put our adoption plans on FB and got some awesome responses from my church family. You better believe I will be at church Sunday morning. I feel the need to be surrounded by these special people God has placed in my life. (And there, I've met my crying quota for the day.)
Happy hearts and good attitude!! (Yeah, I just got that off of Toddlers and Tiaras....junk TV)
