We moved into a new house - something you may have already heard. Here is the "Yay! We bought a house!" Picture:
I've been plugging away at work - we're producing Seussical the Musical this year, and it's been hard. I really expected this show to be a walk in the park as I have seen it and directed it and performed in it all before. But it has been a real challenge. Costuming has been a blast though. Lots of bright colors and patterns.
Nothing really new on the adoption front. I've actually been avoiding talking about it with people. I feel like perhaps I wore my heart on my sleeve just a little too much with this previous potential match. Normally, I'm an advocate for talking about your feelings whenever you need/want to - but I feel like if we have another potential match situation, I'll only tell those nearest to us. That way I won't have to consistently explain that we were not chosen this time - and that it's okay that we weren't chosen. I've come to realize that people who don't know us or our journey very well expect me to act a certain way in certain situations, and I just don't like that. So, we'll just avoid that altogether.
Jon has been working and taking care of grandma with me (we had to move her upstairs due to the flooding) - which has been wonderful. He's also been the world's best husband helping me with the show in terms of building and going shopping with me for costumes (he even picks some out - and they're consistently better than the ones I pick!) We love our new home - and I'm really excited to put together the nursery, and I think he is too. I'll make sure to post pictures of that when it happens.
And that's about it. That's us right now.
