Week 11 complete. This may have been our busiest week.
*My Dad's 70th birthday celebration was wonderful. He is great physically and mentally. Seeing my sisters and brother was nice, also. We got home, Saturday night.
*Early Sunday morning Eliza was dropped off at her school to go to the inauguration. She had an amazing time. I received a text from her saying, "Stood where MLK gave his speech. Most moving few seconds of my life."
*That same day we picked up Gao, our chinese exchange student. He is a lovely young man, and so quiet. I don't think I know any boys his age that are so quiet. We have taken him bowling, sledding, and to the movies. Andrew had a get together at our house of way too many boys and another exchange student. Poor Gao, was a little overwhelmed by the noise.
*A&P II started this week. I am excited to get the cobwebs off the mind, again. I have looked into nursing programs. I feel good about my options. the next year will be fairly uncertain, though, with little M coming home and settling in. We will see how that goes before I commit to anything. The good news is that my sciences don't expire for 10 years.
*Jason took me for my 41st bday to a Toby Keith concert and a night at a spa. We did not know what to expect from the concert, but it was great. The spa treatment was great. My favorite thing was time alone with him.
*Working out, again. Okay, I hate to work out. I hate sweating. I love yoga, but I am not sure that that I enough. Especially if I am going to be carrying around 30lbs. I have hit the weights... another step closer to Little M.
Movement on the addendum is slow. Think molasses in January. I am expecting the notarized copies this week. Once I get those, I can turn around and send it to CIS. Who knows how long that will take?! I am starting to feel really excited. Something that I have not allowed myself to think about. I have read so many books. Some I like, some I don't. Some, its hard to know if I will like them after Little M comes home.
I heard a great quote this week. Worry about your appearance only if you have nothing better to offer the world.
