Rainy Saturday

I didn't update yesterday when I got the Friday update, but there wasn't really anything to update. No referrals, nothing new. Bleh.

Today it's super rainy outside, which I love, so we're enjoying a nice day at home. I played a game with the boys for a while, Shawn cleaned out a storage room in the basement and then Shawn and I snuggled on the bed and watched a movie while the kids played.

We watched Juno, which I've seen before but Shawn hadn't. I really love that movie, but I don't know what I was thinking watching it today! Anything related to adoption makes me bawl my eyes out these days. That movie is really cute and sweet and kind of sad at the same time. It makes me think about what Clarissa's birth mother must be going through right now. Choosing to place a child for adoption must be a heartbreaking decision to make.

We had a nice afternoon though. I enjoy Saturdays like this.

The next few weeks are going to be full of craziness around here, which is probably a good thing. The boys only have a couple of weeks of school left and they have a whole bunch of projects they're working on and they both have end of the year school programs that we'll get to go to. So I have to come up with a panda costume for Josh, I have to help him make a gas station out of a shoe box for a class project and Matthew is practicing songs for his program that we've all been singing for days. I think I may never get those songs out of my head! We're also going to Portland next weekend for our anniversary/Fathers Day and the next weekend we're going to a cabin for the weekend with some friends.

I'm actually looking forward to all the craziness and I'm really looking forward to getting out of town for a few days. I have a feeling that the referral wait is going to continue for a little while longer and I just can't sit here and wait for it anymore. It's driving me crazy. I'll be taking my netbook out of town with me though, so if by some miracle we get the referral call while we're out of town, I'll post about it right away.

For now I'm going to go back to snuggling with my husband for a while. The kids are watching a movie and camping out in the basement tonight, so I think we'll have our own little date night upstairs. Sounds good to me!
