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.

Blech, Frustration...

I recently dropped two of my Jazz.ercise classes at one center but kept a Per.sonal class which is a small class dedicated to strength training.  The problem is that I just discovered the center-owner has taken me off of the instructor e-mail list even though I'm still there once a week (and maybe twice if I get more students on this go-round),  making money for her.


I know the thing to do is to nicely ask her to please add me back since I am technically still working there.  Right now though I'm frustrated and wonder what the hell she's thinking.  I feel alienated and it's not the first time the two of us have had communication problems.  Maybe I'll keep having one of my friends forward the e-mails. 

I'm also exhausted this morning.  It was a crazy weekend.  We went to the ballet Friday night and then drove up to the mountains afterward (read: super late), got up early to hit Vai.l by 8:30am (powder day!), stayed out late Saturday night then got up, packed up our room (last week at the condo, sad), skiied Win.ter Par.k with some friends yesterday, then got home at 6:30pm last night.  Oof.  I need another day off.

Wow.  9 months today.

Am I....?

Not adoption or IF related....
