Calm Days

The last few days have been calm days. The kids play lots of games to include Twister.....

Where marking of the feet has helped!

Lots of wii playing, trampoline jumping and sharing.  The kids are on a pretty good run right now.  The squabbles have been few and the fighting minimal (for our house). 

I almost don't know what to do with myself.  I am on the last load of laundry from the girls room and have done a lot of sorting.  I have even done a lot of cleaning of my desk!  However, I feel the need to do some type of project. 

Right now our life is in a stand still of some type.  John doesn't know what to do or where to go.  He wishes that the direction he needed to go was clearly marked.  He is looking at going back to school.  I am even looking at going back to school to get a second master.  I am also contemplating starting a business in the next few months and am thinking about actually taking an art class online (I have never actually taken an art class, might be fun).

I have started looking at adoption photolistings and am shocked that some of the kids that were there over 2 years ago are still there.  Our adoption homestudy is almost complete so we wait to see where that goes.  Should I look or just wait for the call?  Emma and Michelle were not on any photolistings because they were a disrupted adoption placement.  Sarah says that she would like it if we got some easy kids for a change.  Somehow I don't think that will happen.  I have a feeling that we will get a call for another hard to place kid/s.  That just seems to be how it goes for us.

Ever have that feeling of "now what?"  That is how I feel right now.  Not a concerned feeling, more of a restless feeling.  There is something that is missing or something that I need to do.  I just need to figure it out.  Is this the calm before the storm?  More concerning to me is do I only know how to do storm?


  1. Glad everyone is doing so well. It's hard here fitting the big kids back into the routine. One has done nothing but use us as a boarding house. Sigh.

  2. I am so glad it has been a good week at your house. You were definitely due! I hate that restless feeling. I have a feeling I'll be feeling with you when I get back from California.
