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.



Got nothing today. I started a post about my century ride (the actual day), which I'm way behind in writing, and then S came in to the office, "Are you getting the kids or am I?" Since I am going out tonight with a friend, I suppose I should oblige.

Since my week got completely screwed by Baby Z's toe infection, I took my already planned days off yesterday and today. I feel fairly accomplished today in that I ran around for 2 hours getting some shopping errands done that had been piling up.

In deciding to take today off as planned, I ignored the fact that I haven't finished figuring out if we need to drill a 200-ft hole at the dam I've been in charge of lately. Been kicking myself quite a bit that I didn't have the revelation during one of the other 4 drill holes and just make them extend those holes. I've convinced myself that engineering-wise, we really don't need to drill said hole, it's just that there's so much that's different compared to the original field investigations that I have that pull to gather more data even if it doesn't matter for analysis.

Anyway, lots of anxiety over shirking my responsibility and the drill crews pull off the site next week. But again, we don't really need to have that information.
