Why Adoption Matters More Than Yardwork
Why Adoption Matters More Than Yardwork. I am One Tired Chickadee. I’ve been working on the house, trying to get it to where I don’t wince when the worker comes for our home visit. I *had* goals today, but alas I started doing something else. The leaf blower emerged. It felt good to blow those leaves off of my pea gravel, bushes, patio, and everywhere else. Them suckers wedge in and it takes an act of Congress to get them out. I blew all the leaves out of my flower beds.
The kids cleaned up the yard and helped me to re-position the slate rocks that cover part of my patio. Boo cleaned off the pool deck, I got all the nails driven into the balcony, so it is ready to sand and stain. I had a friend over and he helped finish the border around the front door, so now I only have to paint the door, itself (and clean up where he got a little wild). He got the laundry room sanded down, so it is ready to paint. It’s been a pretty productive day.
I’m tired, but I have a sense of accomplishment. I also got all my papers notarized. I didn’t get my tax form or my other income form in the mail, but we still have tomorrow. I’m all ready for my home study visit, tomorrow!
