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 - Ugh

There was no downtime this weekend save for a movie date night S and I had on Friday in anticipation of total suckage the rest of the weekend. I took Friday and today off to paint. (I hate painting) Also, Friday was the last day of school so I went to X's classroom to hang out for a little while before rushing off to buy paint and meet the tub refinishing guy. In the afternoon both kids were dropped off at gparents so that S and I could spend a romantic weekend of house repair. Saturday was a whole morning of inspecting the new house, in which we were sorely disappointed in the state of the electrical and plumbing. Saturday afternoon we hit the painting in the basement and then took a nice Saturday night trip to a big box hardware store. Sunday brought more painting for me, soccer and generally trying to keep it together in a house that is currently in various stages of repair and chaos. New light fixture in the bathroom looks like shit but it's the only one that fits, tub is refinished but we haven't used it yet so half our stuff is in the downstairs bathroom and half is upstairs. We took out the shitty medicine cabinet and replaced it with a mirror because that makes sense in a tiny bathroom. But hey, it looks better! The family room in the basement is covered in tape and furniture is pushed to the middle causing all kinds of havoc. The office and laundry room are dumping grounds for all kinds of random crap. 

Getting a house ready for sale sucks.
