So, I suck…I’m sorry I dropped the news bomb of the failed adoption and then disappeared for the most part. I’ve just been trying to either completely immerse myself in Gilmore Girls so that I don’t have to think or I’ve been working on Family Promise or my Young Living business.
My current goal for my Young Living business (besides helping people change their lives) is to be able to not worry about getting new daycare kids next school year if any of my current leave after this school year. Our goal for Family Promise is to open January 1st! We have a lot to do before then but we finally seem to have a team that’s willing to work hard to get it done in the next 5 months. Lots of exciting stuff happening (including having Fridays off this year!!!).
What else? J and I are working on our relationship. It’s been a bit of a rough summer with me being in recovery and everything that went down. We deal with it in very different ways and not always in healthy ways. We’re working on better communication, spending time together and just getting back to being us.
Last Tuesday, I went to dinner with some girlfriends from my old church. We used to get together every couple months for dinner when I lived in my hometown, but since I’ve moved, it’s been much less frequent. In fact, I think it’s been close to 2 years since we’ve met up for dinner. In all honestly, I should have begged off this time too. Two of them have children and the 3rd is 34 weeks. I was already a little hurt going in because I didn’t get an invite to her baby shower. This is the woman that was with me when I got the news that my Dad had passed away and we ran our small group for youth group together. Although they were very sympathetic to what we’ve been going through, most of the conversation revolved around their children, pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. Most of the time, I can handle that kind of thing like a champ, but in this case, it was just too soon after the failed adoption and my soul just ached by the end of dinner. Needless to say, I don’t think I’ll be putting myself in that position again anytime soon.
Well, J wants me to be ready in a couple minutes to go show me something so I better get going. Please head over to my new blog and follow me there too! I’ll be doing a new post on this book that some of my team members have been raving about (hopefully it’ll happen tonight yet)! 🙂
Sending you all lots of love!
