Hi, I’m Geochick.

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

Hall.oween Redux

We forgot to put the pumpkins out.  But at least they were fun to carve!  Plus, I have a plethora of roasted pumpkin seeds to last me a few weeks.

We were also the scrooges who didn't hand out candy this year.  Honestly, after being in this house for several years and seeing the drop off in the number of trick-or-treaters (last year we had 2 groups), we've given up.  There's too many schools doing stuff, the commercial block near our house blocks off the street and has their own trick-or-treat street, and those of us a few blocks away get screwed out of a Halloween tradition.  It's sad in a way, because I always remember going out trick-or-treating in my neighborhood growing up and seeing all kinds of kids and parents out and about.  One block over was busy, yet our street is always really quiet.

Baby X doesn't seem to mind though.
