Thanks for all the support you guys! You rock. Becca’s email to Hague was awesome 🙂 Now I know y’all say how strong I am and honestly, your words do help to feed that strength and remind me that I can keep going. Thank you for that! As I hear more from my coordinator Julie, I will keep you posted. She and I are going to have a visit this week and we sort of have a plan that I think is great. AND if Kaz opens back up in 2/3 months as we hope, I won’t be too far behind. If for some reason we go past 3 months…. Well, I will think about that in a few weeks. Until then I choose to believe Kaz will get past this sooner rather than later.
Now onto other things….. since I have no adoption stuff to report at this time. Friday night I had made plans to go to dinner with my friend Kim. We had not seen each other in ages. You know I wasn’t feeling up to it but I forced myself to go and you know what. I had a great time. We sat outside since it was a lovely evening and chatted and talked for 3 hours. She has a 15 year old son and we talked about him and we talked about my adoption and how amazing being a mother is/will be. We talked about being single and boys and work and just everything. It was fun. I was glad I went.
Saturday I got up early and met my sister and friend V for kickboxing. WOW. That was quiet a workout. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I feel like it has sort of renewed my workout instinct. I mean I didn’t die or pass out in class! I was sorta thinking I would. I made it through and even managed the handstand push-up. OK.. I only did ONE but… I stayed the whole 30 seconds on my hands and it was no biggie. I have sort of been lagging in the workout department lately. With summer just around the corner and the possibility of a date in my future… One must seriously focus on the jiggle. OH I have not mentioned the date thing have I???! Do y’all even care and do you want the deets???
After working out I then took some “sample” pictures in hopes of giving brides an example of my bridal creativity. I keep getting contacted for weddings and then nothing. I KNOW it is because I don’t have any weddings under my belt. I mean I don’t think I should do your 200+ full service catholic mass wedding, but I do think that I would be perfect for your winery outdoor wedding. I have a meeting tomorrow with a bride and groom.. I hope the images I took on Saturday will convince them that I can capture and create memories that she will look back on and smile. Wish me luck!
