Three months and counting

I know I haven’t posted anything in over a week. You don’t have to tell me that I’m a slacker, I know this. It’s just that, well, we are going through one of those stages where nothing is happening. No adoption news at all right now. Referrals are rumored to be coming soon for the late May-early June groups, but all is quiet on the eastern front. Tomorrow, we celebrate three months since our dossier was sent to China! That’s something, but hard to get excited when you don’t know how many more months we have to go...

We have been busy around the house getting stuff done, although the longest bathroom renovation in the history of the world is still not over. Once that is done, we can move onto bigger and better things (i.e. the nursery). I will post some pictures of the finished rooms, so you can see what we have been up to. In other news on the home front, we are having a yard sale this weekend, to clear out some clutter and hopefully, make a little $$. It’s actually a multi-family sale, with some neighbors and friends joining in the fun. The weather promises to be good, so it won’t be a bad way to spend a Saturday.

There are so many little jobs to do around the house before Lily Kate comes home. I think we are going to need the extra time the slowdown has afforded us to get ready. You think you have so much time, and before you know it, three entire months have gone by in a flash. We need to get started on the overall baby-proofing of the house. It’s very apparent when children come to visit, that we have a long way to go. Sharp corners, knick-knacks, unprotected outlets and doors…it’s a virtual minefield!

So, we are hanging in there, living our lives, getting things done and enjoying the last few months we have to ourselves, before it all changes. Life as we know it will never be the same and we couldn’t be happier at the prospect!


  1. I know what you mean about nothing happening on the adoption front. We're nearing the end of our paperchase, and right now we're kind of at standstill, waiting for documents and such. Congrats on hitting the three month mark. You are that much closer to your daughter!

  2. I'm about to start hitting garage sales looking for baby books and such. (They're quite pricey new.)

    Hope yours went well. I know the weather was good...except for the giant storm the other night!!

    We're bored in the process, too. Also 3months in with nothing to do.....ho hum.
