I have not had much time to blog this week. My mom is visiting and we have been waaaaay too busy going out to eat and celebrating my birthday and showing each other our farms on farmville for me to sit down and write much.
I had to blog this. Because this is Blog-Worthy.
I turned in our formal application to the adoption agency tonight!
I thought, I'll take Mom up there, it's only about half an hour away, and drop this off and be back in time for dinner. No big deal.
I was wrong. It was a big deal. I am sad that Jonathan was working and couldn't be there to see our name go on the agency's list. But I am so happy my mom was there. And she took some pictures of me. I looked so sloppy and didn't want her to take pictures at the time, but after we got in the car and I got all teary-eyed and shaky and called Jonathan, then --then -- I was so grateful she had taken pictures. Who cares that I was wearing a hoodie and my hair was falling out of my ponytail? I want my son to see those pictures someday.
We drove home through the snow and traffic and when we walked in the door of my house Jonathan was making us a delicious Thai curry dinner. I love my life.
