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.

#MicroblogMondays - Cramming it All In

Baby Z and X's daycare was closed on Friday, so S and I took the day off and made it a four day weekend of fun, fun, FUN! Or so we think. The goal was to hit the activities we've neglected all summer long.

First up: The Zoo and going to a First Friday Artwalk (our first one, and last of the season)

Next: Hiking. X lasted about an hour and our dog was more than happy to get out of the house for once. Hope to do some more this fall...

And Then: Baby Z turned ONE. We'll have a larger birthday party in a few weeks, but had our own little family celebration on his birthday. In retrospect, the ice cream cupcakes may not have been the smartest move. But it made for some funny pictures when the brain-freeze hit. :/

...and that about does it for family fun. Back to work:

Cleaning...

Pretty sure these haven't been cleaned since we put them up there 5 years ago.

Organizing...

A new drop zone. Hopefully this will keep our counters clear. Need to move the brass bell still. That'll take a couple years. :D
