The Latest & Greatest

This week feels crazy because we have something going on every day. And the day(s?) we don't officially have anything going on, work's been a little abnormal.

The pastors have been gone on their annual beach retreat this week, which typically means I have tons and tons of time to get projects and other things done while they're gone that I usually have to put off during the busy times. This week all that down time has flown out the window, due to weird and bizarre circumstances. And now the pastors are back today and work life returns to normal. Or, returns to the crazy that is preparing for Christmas when you work at your church. It's fun, but BUSY!

Last night we went to our first adoption ministry meeting at church. The room was PACKED with tons of interested folks, which was really neat! The downside is it was an info meeting geared more to general info for those folks just starting the process. We left and CC and I both felt like we could've taught the class. (We sound snooty but really we just kept wanting to pipe in with our own two cents- but we didn't, so that's good. It's just that we're so far along in the process compared to everyone else, so we felt like we could share if asked.)

Tomorrow night we're attending our agency's fundraiser banquet (which just means we'll pretend to be fancy schmancy people so we can eat a wonderful meal and hear a really cool speaker). I'm pretty excited about it!

I know now that it's public knowledge, I'll be talking a lot about our adoption, and I hope you're okay with that. We're pretty ding dang excited about it and since that's the BIG thing in our lives right now, that's what's on my mind to share about.

To that end, you may have noticed the new section at the top of this here blog, called Adoption Fundraising. If you click that link, you'll be able to read all about our current fundraising opportunity should you feel the Lord leading you to support us in that way. No pressure, no obligation.

In the meantime amidst all that busyness, Hubby and I are on week two of Focus T25. And we huurrrtttt!!! But it's a good hurt, you know what I mean? I haven't lost any weight really but I can tell changes are happening which is exciting! I'm hoping to lose bunches of inches like all those testimonials say will happen. Or at least finally find out I have arm muscles! We'll see.

So that's what's new with me. How're you? I feel very out of the loop lately, for some reason. Fill me in, friends!
