Icky Sickly Blah

Well Hubbs woke up this morning with a fever, after keeping me up all night with his constant in the room out of the room, going over here then over there, then turning on and off the lights because he hates me. lol.

The last few days my stomach has been bothering me, but nothing too terrible. Today I managed to scarf down some toast and some chicken soup later, but I still feel like a sickly blob. I really hope we recover quickly.

Tomorrow is our adoption orientation. At this point, we've been waiting two months for this particular meeting, and well over a year to start this process in general. I know that starting the process, just means a whole lot more waiting is down the line anyway. It'll be really nice though to at least say that we've officially started and not that we're still waiting to start. Go us.

Pretty sure tonight will just mean laying in bed and possibly reading one of my new library selections before I inevitably pass out at 9:30 because it's only 6:45 right now and I'm pretty sure I could go to bed without a problem right about now.

I'm still loving my long-term subbing assignment. For those of you who don't know, I'm subbing for an aide in the special ed kindergarten at an elementary school. It's really awesome. Some days are harder than others, but the kids are all really great and there's always one precious moment to remember at the end of the day that makes me realize the hard work is totally worth it.  I am not such a huge fan of the early mornings, especially when I go to school at night, but it's something I just have to do.

I'm also considering selling off some of our book/dvd/game/video game collection on ebay or something. We have all of this stuff laying around that, let's face it, we never use and we need money. maybe I'll just keep hording them all forever. I'm just trying to think of ways to scrape together some extra cash. It'll be nice once I hear back from the people at that auction house about my painting I inherited from my grandfather. I'd hate to sell it, but the money could be put towards the future instead of just sitting on a wall in a room in my parent's house where no one looks at it. lol.

  1. Praying for healing for the gunk, and especially for your journey towards adoption! We've never adopted, but I have a heart for kids...especially kids with no place to go. There is a child(ren) out there who needs exactly what you have to give.
