Let the countdowns begin. Count downs until the end of school, until moving day, until new beginnings. We have a lot of change happening at my house currently.
Last week I signed a purchase agreement for my very own home. I am excited (and a little terrified) to be making such a commitment. However, life moves on, and I am ready for my life to move in this way. I am excited about decorating how I want, creating my own space, and having a place to call my own. I am also happy that my new home will be close to friends and people that I call "family".
We also found out last week that L and J have been selected to adopt again! Little J is going to be a big brother! He is going to have a brother AND a sister! TWINS!
The twins are to be born via C section on May 15th, so things are happening pretty quickly. There really isn't much that we can prepare in the house, just in case things don't work out. However, we are quickly cleaning out closets, making garage sale piles, packing my things into boxes and making "just in case" lists.
I know time will go quickly. I will need to keep the balance between counting down to new beginnings and cherishing the moments that belong to here and now.
