Happy Birthday to all those Virgos out there!
I’m sorry for the radio silence since the internet went out. All sorts of stuff went on, between my laptop starting to go out, internet going back out; all those great moments in life that make you say meh and hide away until the next day. Next thing you know it’s been quite a while since you’ve blogged. *grin* I have managed to make several pieces of product that I’m actually sending over to a favorite show in Ireland, plus Christmas items, and had a LOT of failures while making product recipes. *laugh*
While I’m at it, this is the least enthusiastic I’ve ever felt about my birthday, honestly. My mind is pulled too many directions, plus it was recently the twentieth anniversary of miscarrying Sierra, which has a lot more emotional impact than just another middling birthday. It’s a step closer to the fortieth, which is a little less enthusiastic than even this one. *laugh* It’ll make figuring up my age easier for the doctor’s office, at least. If you ever wonder about why I’m so critical with myself or analyse everything, just read the definition of a Virgo. I’m the epitome of the nerdy one. *grin*
One super huge event that has taken up most of my thoughts while off is that the BIS meeting happened for our hopeful daughter. We’ll know in a month or so how the results came out, so it’s a dual-edged sword; there’s finally a time frame for expectations, but now there’s a chance that in four or so weeks I may learn that we weren’t selected for this daughter that I felt for as soon as I read her profile. It’s been just the two of us rattling around in this home for so long that it’s hard to imagine another person, especially when it’s not one that has grown up into our family, but is a mini-adult with us all jumping into massive changes. I can imagine her at Christmas, making product with me, and going through schoolwork together. I’m trying to not be excited, since our SW made it sound like it went very favorably, but we’ve been burned so much by our experiences. Parts of me can’t help but think if we have at least visitation by Christmas I’m turning our home into a mini-Branson. *laugh* Make a freaking Winter Wonderland for the first Christmas with our daughter, plus it’ll be such a memorable time with the family anyway. Needless to say, I’ve had a lot of self-editing of my emotions and thoughts, but the hamsters are still pretty lost in the ideas and hope, honestly.
Anyway, I’m back with my new laptop, improved internet connection, and five injuries I’m recovering from. *laugh* Bengay is considered pampering too, right? 😉
