Better Things to Do

Apparantly, Bubbles' mom has more important things to do than visit her precious daughter for one hour a week. This is the second missed visit in a row. Before, she's been attending about every other visit. Last week I thought she surely had to be giving birth, because why else would she not come see her little girl?

Then I got to thinking...I wonder when visiting hours are at her bio dad's prison? Could she be choosing the man over her baby?

Ok, shame on me. Let's give her the benefit of the doubt today that she didn't visit because she was giving birth.

I wonder if my phone will ring soon...

Having Second Thoughts

I've been having second thoughts about taking Bubbles' sibling. I'm just thinking it will be too much. If only I knew if they became adoptable they wouldn't take her to place them together. We were told they wouldn't move her when the sibling came because Bubbles has bonded with us, but I just don't know what to believe.

I guess I will just have to keep it in God's hands and trust in Him that he won't give me more than I can handle. The thought of finally getting a newborn baby is exciting, but I'm already running myself crazy(although I'm loving it). Maybe another infertile couple will be blessed with her child and take the baby, and not try to take Bubbles too. I'm ok with someone else getting the baby, but I don't want to lose Bubbles. What do you think all you foster parent veterans?

Sorry for my absence, but my kids having been walking all over me. I'm gonna have to try and be meaner tomorrow again.

In other news, Smiley's adoption worker is coming Thursday and we're hoping to have the adoption finalized late September/early October before his next surgeries come up. It will be so nice to be able to sign paperwork for my son to have surgery and not have to go through all the crap.

Well, got more schoolwork to do. Thanks for sticking around with me.

Still Alive

I survived my first two days teaching. I don't have time to write more yet, but I'm still here.

What An Impression!

I was at my principal's house today for a day of prayer. I was fixing my plate for lunch, very excited that there was one thing I actually ate and glad I didn't have to apologize again for my pickiness. Well, I sat in a chair, pulled another up to use as a table.

I set my coke on my "table" and

There goes my coke...spilt all over the floor! All of it too.

One of the other teachers just grabbed some paper towels and helped me clean it up.

It's a good thing I teach elementary and the other teachers are used to this sort of thing with the kids.

I just shrugged it off saying, "yup, I'm a klutz!"

Wasted Day

I needed to get so much done today, but accomplished nothing. I wasn't resting, or relaxing, I just didn't get anything done. Tomorrow I report to my new job officially for orientation. Maybe I'm stressed and can't concentrate. I have the teaching exam to take Saturday morning and I'm so scared I won't remember everything. It's all easy stuff, but I just don't remember all the history topics and they're are just too many to research them all before Saturday. I guess I will just have to put it in God's hands.

I have to bring a covered dish tomorrow. Being picky, I'm gonna make a sandwich tray. Well, I go to Wal.mart to get deli meat and left my entire buggie full of shit there after waiting 20 minutes while an old couple made the ladies cut a slice of meat, they sampled it, and then had them get another, and another. There was more than one worker so I don't understand why one couldn't have helped me. I went to a second grocery store and got what I needed. By the time I got home it was after noon. My day was pretty much shot since I will have to go get my babies shortly.

Well, better catch a quick shower before I get my little babes! It's been rainy again too. Maybe that's bringing me down too. Missing my little Princess too.

I guess tomorrow will be better. If not, I'll be too busy to notice.
