Internetz, may I say how grateful I am to those of you who so graciously shared your excitement with Irish Boy and I about our decision to pursue adoption?
I know that I've probably lost some followers because of it - but to know that there are still so many of you rooting for us means so much.
That said, now that we are homestudy approved, there's not a whole heck of a lot to talk about! We are definitely in the waiting game and hence the title of this post, there isn't a whole heck of a lot to say!
Admittedly, every time the telephone rings, my heart skips a beat and I say a silent prayer that it's our social worker with news.
So far? No news.
Also? My damn telephone rings. A lot.
But Internetz, I am in a good place. I'm having trouble finding the words for it, but my heart feels, well, content.
I must be in a good place because for the first time in the midst of many (failed) attempts, I am taking care of myself. I am eating well, losing some (much needed) weight (in a safe way - no crash diets here!), sleeping better and dare I say it, feeling optimistic?
This whole "healthy living" routine has proved to be a great distraction in this waiting game. I've also been cooking up a storm and have found fantastic new recipes for banana muffins, baked chicken tenders and then some!
So, in honour of my cooking bug, do you have a favourite recipe that you'd like to share with me, Internetz? Post it below - or share a link! Keep me busy!
