Mind Dump

I feel so bad for neglecting my blog lately so you’re getting the random roundup of what’s going on!

  • My brother and his wife are adopting! Yeah. (They actually had adoption plans long before we did.)
  • Mark’s grandmother is in the hospital and apparently had a stroke. They are still doing testing.
  • Mark’s sister Jenny is coming for a unplanned visit next week so we get to see her all cute and pregnant. Yeah!
  • It’s spring break for my oldest and today I have put out about 900 arguments. My five year old just entered the room to tell me “The Wii is cheating!” Life is rough isn’t it.
  • Next week they are both off ALL week. Hubby gets to be parent on duty as I have to work 🙂 Except for Tuesday.
  • Friends who are adopting passed court yesterday and officially parents of two beautiful girls.
  • We are anxiously awaiting updated pictures of our two newest children.
  • I have freelance work piling up. It just keeps coming. Five web sites, some misc. print pieces. Whew! But it is a blessing.
  • We got to hear from the Director of Tumaini Ministries last weekend. My parents spent some time working at their orphanage last fall and Eunice was in the states. They have a beautiful facility and awesome plans to build cottages on 50 acres of land in Kenya that will house orphans in a home-like environment.
  • After the presentation we got to have yummy cheesecake with our friends Dustin and Jen. It was just a really neat time of conversation about what is going on in our lives.
  • We are having a big garage sale on March 29th – combined forces with Dustin and Jen and one other adoptive family. Proceed will go toward adoption expenses. We have tons of stuff piled in our garage from friends (and a generous amount from our own house – how do we collect so much crap?)
  • Church is gearing up for our big spring carnival this weekend. We’re having an egg hunt with 30,000 Easter Eggs, including about half of them being dropped out of a helicopter. Should be great fun! (www.easteratpalmvalley.com)

    man, I wish I could drop off some stuff for your garage sale… I’m in so much trouble if we ever decide to move again!

    Sounds like you’ve got lots going on! I wish we could have gone out this week but this sick thing has kicked my butt :o) Maybe next week?

    You do have lots going on. But you had enough time to help us after Mom had surgery. Thanks for the dinner. Yummy!
