Another post. . .

My title is what it is for my few readers. This is just another post for me to do while I contemplate whether or not I should continue blogging. I really think I should spend the time writing letters to friends that I have been neglecting, but this is easier. ;-)

But for now, here's what's going on:

Little French Baby was going, but now is staying a bit more. There was a unforeseeable problem with the Aunt and Uncle. They will probably get it cleared up in 6 weeks or so, but for now little Frenchy will stay. We are happy, but I did want her to get going if she's going. Why spend any more time attaching to us. I'm already attached, thank you very much.

Laughing baby boy J is still here and we are praying it is forever. Frenchy has a responsible family member to take her. Baby J does not. He needs us - and we need him. The county worker will probably try reunification, since we are told that is always the goal. It is funny that the goal is never to do what is best for the child. Why is that?

My college boy Brandon - It is going well for him, and brings back memories. . . It is 11:30 pm and he is studying for his test tomorrow. Time management is on the agenda for next week. We didn't have time to work on time management this week.

All three kids are going to be leaders in AWANAS at our church. The girls have before, but this will be Brandon's first time working in AWANAS. He went in saying he would only be a helper, and came out a leader. It was scary. I don't think he knew what hit him.

We have an extra dog while Neil's mom travels with her boyfriend. I feel a little silly calling a 75 year man a "boyfriend," but it would disappointing to the kids if I didn't. Hey, we calls it as we sees it.

Our little D is coming over in two days and the excitement builds. If she only knew how much we loved her she might use it against us. Shh.

Better run. Yes, it is almost 12:00 am and I am no where near ready to call it a night. So what's new?


It is not enough to be busy; so are the ants.
The question is: what are we busy about?

i love your blog, even if you can't post really regularly. don't give it up totally. Glad you are getting more time with D. i had to cancel Dancing Baby Girl's weekend with us but her mom is letting her come for a long weekend next weekend so all is good. your D looks uncannily like my DBG and it sounds like you got a broken heart and a second chance at loving her out of the same deal I got.
Hang in there,

Hi Beth,

Thanks for the encouragement, and I am happy if you enjoy reading my every now and then post. I have had the same thoughts about our similar circumstances regarding your Dancing Baby Girl and our D. And they do resemble each other! I pick up D in the morning - always bittersweet, as I know you understand.
