Recap of the Last Few Days

Jerry and I had a lovely time out for our anniversary. We both ate so much that you could have rolled us out of there. Anyway, when we got home I was playing with the dogs on my bed and Cody got a little wiggly and rolled his big noggin into my nose. Well I heard a big crack and it instantly started to bleed. I haven't had a nose bleed since I was a kid, but I knew what to do and within a few minutes I had it stopped. I was afraid that I had broken my nose, so I applied an ice pack and inspected the damage. Everything appeared okay so I went to sleep.
Well, the next morning I woke up feeling groggy, dizzy and a bit nausous. I figured it would wear off in a few hours. I did my usual morning things, but it the feelings wouldn't go away, so I decided to take a shower and eat lunch. Still the same. So, I decided to take a nap. When I got up from my 2 hour nap, I felt horrible. I was worried that something could be wrong with me that might be more serious, so off to the ER I went. After a CAT scan it turns out I just had a concussion. The doctor advised me to rest and get lots of fluids. She said it could take as long as a week to feel better. OK, so I went home and slept most of the evening and night.
When I got up on Thursday morning I felt even worse, and really emotional. I called the on call doctor and he said it was normal. Ugh. I called my mom and she came over to sit with me and take care of the dogs and me. By 5:00pm I was finally able to get dressed and make dinner. What an experience. I never though a little bump on the head could make a person feel so bad. Thank goodness I am feeling better today because we have plans to go camping with my moms family.

Today Jerry and I celebrate our 8th Wedding Anniversary. It's really hard to believe that it's been 8 years since we got married. It seems to have flown by so fast. There are so many things that have changed, but we are still together and that hasn't changed. My husband is my best friend and I am glad to have him. I would marry him all over again, and that's a wonderful thing to admit.
The plan is to spend a relaxing time at Pittsburgh Blue Steakhouse eating dinner and enjoying eachothers company. I can't wait.

A new development

Seems that we were referred for this little girl back in July. We should here somehthing at the end of the month or early next month. We have also had our homestudy submitted for 2 sibling groups. Both of them are 1 boy and 1 girl. The first group is a 1 and 8 year old and the second is a 3 and 5 year old. So excited, but not holding my breathe.
This weekend we are up to the north to visit my dad and my family up there. Next weekend it's camping with my mom and the family down here. It's going to be a family fun fest for the next couple of weeks. I am looking forward to visiting my dad and my up north family as I only get to see them a couple of times each year. I just hope the weather gets a bit nicer tomorrow and the Sunday.

Softball Tournament

This past weekend Jerry had a softball tournament. They won thier normal league, so they were invited to the state tournament. They placed 8th in the state, which is their best yet. I was very proud of them. I normally don't go to the tournaments but I felt like I should at least go to the state tournament. Guess it was a great time to go since they did so well. We stayed all day on Sunday after they played their last game to watch the semi-finals and final games. I ended up with a good sunburn on my face. I am still feeling the effects today.

Here's the Scoop

We finally heard from our worker today. She's still waiting to hear back from 2 workers on 2 sibling groups, but has refered us for a 1 year old little girl and is waiting to hear back from that worker. She asked to schedule a time for us to talk, about what I am not sure, but I am happy to get some news. Wouldn't it be so much fun to have a 1 year old little girl? I'm excited for the possibility!

It's been a while

Well, it's been a while, but still I have nothing to report. Today I went to my Remicade appointment where they doubled my dosage leaving me a bit fatigued. When I got home the hubs decided not to go to work after going to the hospital for his back pain. They gave him muscle relaxers and pain meds. They knew that's all they would do, but he couldn't sleep last night because of the pain and needed the relief. He's been seeing a chiropractor for a few weeks because of this issue. Anyway, when I got home all I wanted to do was take a nap, but alas, the dogs wouldn't leave us alone, so I just gave up and took them outside to play while I finished up my book. The hubs is still resting. I wish...
This weekend will be interesting because he has a softball tournament that he's supposed to play in, but won't be able to. Since, he's the manager, he will have to go anyway. Don't know if I'll be going though since he's not playing.
Tomorrow night I am having dinner with my sister, grandma, and aunts. I am looking forward to it since it's been a while since we last had dinner together. It's my grandma's birthday coming up, so I think I will bring her a little something tomorrow. She doesn't like gifts, but I hope she will like the necklace I plan to make her, since it will be homemade. Fingers crossed.

Still Waiting

We are still waiting to be matched with children. I guess it's good that we haven't been matched yet, only because I am still unemployed and our funds are still a bit tight these days. Other then that my heart is aching for kiddos. I don't know how the state can advertise to get sympathy for all the kids in foster care, when they take so long in placing them. Or is it just us? Who knows, it just adds to the frustration of the whole process. It's hard to image that this should take almost 3 years. When we first started they said it could take a few months to a few years. I never imagined we would be on the long end of the timeline. ugh.
