How's everyone doing? Any new decisions? What is going on in your lives right now? What's on the agenda this weekend?

I'm excited to see that this board is a bit more busy! I stopped in and out awhile ago but gave up because it was so quiet.

I suppose I could introduce myself again. I'm Kari and DH is Brian. We started our adoption journey back in January. We are very excited! We just (as in yesterday) got our home study approved and are now on the waiting list to get into our agencies Waiting Family Book. In the mean time, we are doing our own outreach in hopes that we will find our own designated adoption. We are working with Lutheran Social Services and are going through their Infant Open Adoption program.

Anyway, our latest progress is the home study. We are now going to go full force in creating our profile, getting some business cards made up, setting up a second phone line and email address.

As far as our weekend goes, it's gonna be pretty quiet. Didn't do a whole lot today, which was really nice, tomorrow I have to get the laundry caught up.

Wow Disneyland should be a lot of fun You will have to let us know how it goes!

I was going to get new glasses this weekend, but the rain makes me lazy... And I don't want to take my daughter out in it. She has finally given in to naps, no need to wake her up!

FUN! I adore Disney. I want to go this year, but it looks like we'll be waiting until at least next year. We're thinking of going in November (around Thanksgiving) because I've heard it is really not crowded during that time (before the Christmas rush).

Disneyland sounds like a ton of fun Marie!!!! Please let us know how it goes when you get back. I'm dying to take our two year old, but am thinking about waiting until he's three (in February). When I was in high school I went there the weekend after Thanksgiving while they were setting up the Christmas decorations. It was a blast, and while there were still a lot people, it wasn't packed.

Yard work, ugh, you reminded me I've got to water the yard today. My DH is out of town on business this weekend so I've got the two kids and am trying to stay very busy with fun things, but that also leaves me in charge of all the chores by myself.
