Until today

Crazy Kid

AJ just had her first orchestra concert. She did pretty well on the violin. She's decided that next year she wants to be in the choir and play the sax. Oh joys - listening to the learning squeaks of another instrument! =-)

Tomorrow is her quarterly visit with her mom. She has been a complete bear to live with the past two weeks. Her temper flares white hot in an instant then she's all lovey-dovey and remorseful. I'm tired just trying to keep up!

I've also just signed my Open Adoption Agreement. Whoo whee! A friend of mine just went through the adoption process with her two boys and we kept commenting on how much like a wedding it feels. I'm totally in the "I'm so excited I'm engaged (but what about the forever part?!?!?)!"

We still have months worth of processing and paperwork to do. The earliest would be the start of summer. Personally I'm hoping for the end of August. Will keep you posted!

Perfect Day

Have you ever had just that perfect day at work? Where everything you've done for a year coalesces into a great shiny moment? When you know you've had an impact? When you bide your time and hold your tongue and just at the right moment make an observation that turns the entire tide of the conversation? When you get thousands of dollars in concessions when there were zero dollars on the table to begin with? When you just are riding high because what you said is now being echoed by the company owner and the company President?
