Fingerprinting…last of the big Home Study stuff.

So tomorrow Paul & I are going to go get our FBI & state fingerprinting done. We have to clear the background check, which won’t be any problem at all. Paul’s had so many security clearances done and they’ve checked me out, being his wife. Plus there’s nothing terribly interesting anyway 😉 This is the last of the home study big stuff…all we have...

Yard Sale!!

So to raise money for the adoption, one of the things we’re going to do is hold a yard sale. Paul said I can sell what I want (Yay!!) so the baby boy clothes and all the baby stuff is going. We told the agency we want a girl under 2, but are a little flexible, so I’m pretty sure we’ll get a baby...

We finally received word from the agency we chose. We were denied. They said the group they work with in Ethiopia does not accept applications from Mormons. They have the right to decide of course, but with so many children that need a home, I don’t think it’s right to base a decision by a church the applicant belongs to. So we did a...

Big Week!

So this week is gonna be a little….interesting. Life should be taking a turn, in every area of life. We’re hoping to hear back from the Agency we were interested in adopting through. I hope to hear they’ve accepted our application and we can move on to phase 2 (of a million). Paul got a new position in church, one with more responsibility. He’s...

So Tired of sNOOOw!

Yes, I’m going to discuss the weather. If you’ve watched the news lately, you’ve noticed that it’s been snowing a bit here on the east coast. And by “a bit” I really mean WAY TOO MUCH.  We’ve had 2 big storms and lots of flurry days. I just feel sorry for our chickens. Normally they get to go out in their yard, but with...

What a Week!!

A week ago (on Sunday) I found out my best friend’s mom had passed away from cancer. The funeral was to be held in Utah and I knew I had to go.  So Tuesday (at 3am) I left for Utah.  My bff and I have been friends since we were 6…I’m not gonna do the math, but it’s been a long time…almost our whole...

Turkey Day Countdown!

One of my brothers contacted me on FB saying there was nothing new here…Now, sisters and parents are one thing…but when my BROTHERS complain, it’s another ballgame. 😛 So far, life is still good. Our Easter Egger chickens are slowly producing their green eggs, and one of the “she” birds turned out to be a “he” bird, so now we have a rooster. Before...

Trying to Keep Busy

Yesterday I decided to rip up the old carpet on the stairs.  Our stupid kitten had peed on the landing numerous times, and despite a lot of scrubbing, it just was gross.  So out it went. If you remember from previous posts about our house, you’ll know it was built in the 1920’s. And old farm house. So over the years, when something would...
