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.

Perfect Moment Monday ...err Friday

Well,  it's been a while since I really worked on PMM and I was doing pretty well there for a while.  Then I went into a funk and work got insane and I had nothing good to say.

Things still kind of suck (so busy at work that I'm actually in danger of not meeting deadlines, yet so fried I could care less) and champing at the bit during this whole waiting 'thing'.  While I felt like I shouldn't have gone on vacation, I realize that had I not gone on vacation I may be going absolutely effing crazy by now.  You know, instead of just on the brink of crazy.

So, in the spirit of PMM I'm going to wrest something positive out of last week.  Our friends.  We have friends who we've hung out with for years now.  We've always lived close, like to go downtown for happy hour, like to ski and generally we get along with.  I've been worried about the change in our lives affecting the relationship with this particular set of friends  because they have decided not to have children.  Obviously things will change once we actually have children.  But for now, every few weeks or so we get together for dinner or happy hour and spend a fun few hours kind of acting like we did years ago.  The differences being fewer drinks and an earlier bedtime.  :)  Friday was one of those days.
