Now that the wedding festivities for SIL have died down and the Kentucky Derby is over (a big event in this area and a vital part of Stu's new job), life is back to a normal pace. I find myself savoring every moment with S and M, knowing how much their little worlds are going to be rocked soon with our travels to Russia and the addition of HotDog. I woke up in a great mood this morning: the sun was shining and there is so much that I am anxiously awaiting:
-Accreditation of some agencies (although it may not happen immediately, I think the small activity we're seeing right now should bring good news soon)
-our 7th anniversary is next weekend (I can't believe it's been 7 years?!!?)
-And of course, the big PHONE CALL! Realistically I don't think we'll hear anything before the beginning of June, but still...that's only a few weeks away. I'm getting so excited just thinking about how close we are.
All of this anticipation is leading to a serious case of nesting too! Although we've lived in this house for 2.5 years now, there are still so many things we need to do to put our mark on this place. Between a major renovation on the outside and M's adoption, the inside of our house has been put on the back burner. Well, yesterday I went shopping for all of those finishing touches that I've dreamed about since we moved in. At last we can finally make this house our home. I'm also dying to start on the nursery but little M is resisting all efforts to move out and make way for his little sister. I thought he would be thrilled to move into a big boy room but he will have none of it. We've still got awhile before HotDog will need it so we'll just keep gradually nudging him towards it. In the meantime, I've got plenty to do to keep me occupied.
