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.

Work - Ugh

My project schedules have conspired to ruin my summer.

Last week - Idaho in the snow.  SNOW.

This week - Meetings.

The rest of June and July - three big-ass reports to write.

Why didn't anyone tell me that when I became an engineer I'd be constantly writing?

We've had to cancel our July vacation.  I don't have time to plan it or even think about it right now.  S isn't much of a planner so it's usually up to me.  We're still going to take a 4 day weekend and do a little road trip so that will be fun.  Maybe August we can take a real vacation.

I can't believe I'm canceling a vacation because of work.  This is the first time I've ever felt this overwhelmed.

Did you know they don't make "expectant father" cards?  At least I didn't see any.  I thought it would be funny to get S one since he got me one for Mother's day but  no dice.

Treat it Forward - Yum!
