We did make it to the weekend! As usual I had hopes of accomplishing so much. I realized Saturday morning, however, that my to do list for the week was unrealistically long and I decided that all non-school related things took precedence. (I was proud of myself for coming to this conclusion, since most of the time all I focus on is school.) I was really feeling pressure because our primary program for church is scheduled for 3 weeks from today and I was in charge of writing it. I had not written yet and still needed to get it approved and distributed in time for the kids to start practicing before our first practice next Sunday. Saturday was dedicated to finally getting it written. It actually went much quicker and easier than I had imagined. I am happy to report that it is written, approved, and distributed just 24 hours after I told myself I must sit down and finish it.
Tim and I also spent quite a bit of time this week focusing on adoption things, which is much more fun than focusing on work. We have officially bought plane tickets, rented a car, and rented a one bedroom apartment for the end of December. We are going to go get the baby in less than 2 months! I would be lying if we said we were not excited. We have also been discussing a lot about what equipment we should buy: this or that, which brand, buy it now or later, etc, etc. By the way, if any of you experienced parents out there have any wisdom to share on formula, I wouldn't mind you passing the information on.
The "beast" is once again out of service. Sometimes I feel that that 4-wheeler is parked more than it is driven. Right before summer break, the belt broke while Tim was driving it. Tim fixed it in August as soon as we got back to the village. Saturday I was riding the beast to the post office (possible driving too fast) and soon had pieces of belt flying out of the snorkel into my face. Once again, the belt was broken. What belt breaks after less than 3 months? Nevertheless, our spending money has gone for another new belt.
Tim is now telling me that this post has to be finished, because I have to go make cookies. Well, I guess I better go.
