Hi, I’m Tara.

What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy, spiritual awakening and whatever I feel like writing. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.


I don't really make them anymore although I do have a few ongoing resolutions.

The first is to not surf/blog/check e-mail as much at work which will make me more efficient and productive.

Ask me how that's going. It's 10:17am on a Tuesday. *cough*

I also have an ongoing resolution to actually be productive at home in the evenings like read a book, or scrapbook, or give myself a manicure (my nails are horrid but I don't want to go through the hassle of making appts). Then I get home around 7:00-7:30pm, take a shower 'cause I'm all stinky from working out, eat dinner, by then it's 8:00pm and I'm most likely zombied in front of the tv watching some drivel I don't even like.

Oh, and then there's the one where I'm supposed to spend a couple of hours every week learning several new Jaz.zercise routines. Mmmhmmmm. Generally I wait until I can't stand my music anymore and I'm forced to learn at least a couple of new routines.

And of course the big one:  I'll stop procrastinating!  One of these days I swear I'll get around to it.

S was really annoyed last night when he went to the gym and he couldn't do anything for the first 10 minutes because it was way too crowded.  Without fail, it happens every year.  By the middle of Jan. it'll be back to normal!
