Update/ Random

So, it's been a while! Yes, we're alive and kickin'. Just been a crazy, crazy two weeks actually. I'm not going to go into detail because... not the type of thing you blog about to be quite honest. Nothing horrible though. We're doing great.

Jared's been dealing with a big project at work. Can't remember what it is, so if you're really curious, leave a comment, e-mail, or whatever and I'll have him get back to ya. Scouts is going great for him. He's excited to start the swimming merit badge. Yes, you read right. Swimming in ... it'll be Feb. by the time they actually go into the pool. Jared has a maternal uncle who lives about 15 mins. away. This uncle has an indoor, heated pool. Uncle is FABULOUS! at letting us, or the scouts, take over his place to go swimming. He's great no matter what, but you know what I mean. Anyway~ I think that's about it on the Jared front.

I've been busy with my LAST semester of nursing school. Can I just tell you May can not come fast enough? lol Anyway~ it's actually been not too bad of a semester so far. *saying prayers* *knock on wood* Going to try to stay positive that it'll be a great semester. Other then that, scouts is my life too. Wouldn't have it any other way. I've got a great committee now so life is fabulous.

So I just have a bunch of random thought I've been thinking about lately that I want to share. I hope this won't be too boring of a post. So sorry if it is. Anyway~

Who is reading our blog? I know we have a bunch of family members reading but... every now and again I look at the stats and seems like more than just family. So if you're blog stalking us, GREAT! Let us know who you are. We love comments, we love making new friend... so just let us know who you are. We'd love to get to know you, answer any questions you have about us or adoption (assuming we know ourselves), and have you in our life.

What is our 2011 going to be like? I will say this, it's already turned out to be quite the year. But what I mean is I'll graduate school, then what? I'll at least go back to work per diem (or like once/twice a month; this is so I can keep my RN license) but will I end up working more then that? When exactly will I go back to work though, with the trek and family reunion... it may be July or Aug. before I get to go back to work. Maybe longer if a child comes into the picture.

Kids... will this be our year? Only He knows. I will say this, we plan on opening our foster care file once I pass state boards. Us opening our file though does not mean we'll get to adopt the kids we'll foster. When we do adopt, are we going to end up adopting through state and not LDS?

Those are some of my random thoughts. Please feel free to leave comments. Hope I didn't totally bore you all. I hope they make sense too.

I bs you too. I'm Jared's cousin on his mom's side. We're quite spread out and it was always our grandmother's fear that once she died we'd loose all contact with each other. I guess I feel like it's important to her that I make an effort to at least know a little about as many cousins as I can so I try to blog stalk all my cousins (which sometimes means I'm blog stalking their wives).

Good luck with this last semester and all the unknowns this year.

DMN said...

You know I blog stalk you!

I hope this is your year too! Now that I'm going through both, foster care and a private adoption, I can honestly say I prefer going through foster care! The only down side was missing the first 4 months of Emma's life. Good luck with school!
