Hello, blog. I've missed you.I have become so accustomed to writing nearly every day that this little hiatus while I deal with family business in Kansas has left me feeling alien and a bit disconnected.
I feel like so much has happened in the past week that I don't even know where to begin. Blogging basics tell me to practice brevity. So, I shall try.
As it relates to my personal life, I have spent the last week in Kansas tying up loose ends with the family estate. This process has been physically exhausting. Perhaps more emotionally exhausting than anything though.
Today I watched people bid on the items in the estate that no family member wanted to inherit. Some parts of the auction were fun. Others broke my heart and left me crying in the audience. ( THAT really drove sales...)
The end result is that it's all gone. I have the items I want. But their life possessions are gone like vapors. Its sad to realize the marginal items that make a life, and how easily they can be gone.
Tomorrow my in laws are taking the girls back to Ohio for a few days. This will be the longest I've ever been away from either girl, let alone both at the same time. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't scared. It's a mixed bag of emotions. I swear, it's as if I were already pregnant.
Speaking of... I will be in Los Angeles on Wednesday for my screenings. The trip had to be rescheduled due to a scheduling mishap on Growing Generations end. You all pretty much know how I feel about the screening process... I am just ready to have it over and move on to matching. Considering I've been told the G.G. family has a couple in mind for me already, I wonder if I'll be flying home with a profile in hand. I wonder if a week from right now I will be matched.
Seriously, just typing that made my stomach do the little flippy thing.
One thing I am grateful for is that my babies will be in loving hands having a blast while Chris and I are off doing this. Which reminds me.... I need to confirm our sitter for regular visits during the process...
