Peeking in....


I've been the epiphany of a busy bee lately. First, my on-line class has began. I am officially a student--yippee! I am taking statistics, and if I can, I'd like to go ahead and insert a vent here: I had forgotten how HARD that is! I've never taken an on-line class because, frankly I am not too disciplined to make myself study on my own schedule. However, I can honestly say, I've spent so much time on this class already and I am only starting the second week!
Fostering update: I've taken my physical and went this morning for my TB shot. I have to go back on Thursday to have the TB shot looked at, then I can check that off of the million things I have left to do for this program. K has his physical next week. Our training sessions begin June 3 and will last until June 21. We have to go to class every Tues/Thur night and all day on Saturday for 3 weeks. (So, I've been trying to work ahead in my Statistics class so I am not so overwhelmed in June.)
Birth mother update: If you are wondering what I am speaking of, you can read this entry. The birth mother has had our attorney information for 2 1/2 weeks now, and she still hasn't called. She may have changed her mind, which she has every right to do. However, I hope and pray she calls soon to let me know one way or the other. If we will be taking in her baby, we need to be getting ready for that transition. She's due in June...and June is almost here!!!!
This weekend: I am going on a long awaited girls trip to the Beach. We have 13 girls going, some of which I don't really know, but I am looking forward to getting to know better. I've never gone on an all girls trip, but I am really looking forward to it. It will be short lived, but I just love the beach and will use any excuse I can to go there. Not to mention, my friends have been so supportive of me and this journey. I can't wait to get in some girl-time. I was presently surprised when K said I could go, because we haven't ever been away from each other for things like this. Sure, he's had business trips and such, but he's never gone on a guy trip.
I think that's about it for now. I was just peeking in to give you all an update and wish you all a great week!!!!!

I'll be at the beach starting this Sun. :) Hope it's a blast!

Been keeping you in my prayers and this little one, that what is meant to be will happen.

Stats are horrid. Ew, ew, ew! I'm glad I didn't start off my ill-advised adventure into grad school with that one. Good for you for trying to get ahead while you can!

You DO have a lot going on. Statistics is a head-full... and with everything else in your life, I applaud you doing that too! I hope you continue to enjoy it.

Exciting stuff about the foster parent stuff moving along! Hope those classes can answer all sorts of your questions....

As far as the BM not responding yet, I'm so sorry. I hope one way or another you hear something SOON.

Glad your class is going well, and have a blast at the beach! I'm so jealous!!! Praying that the birth mom at least communicates her decision one way or another. Take care.
