Let's try this one more time

I have no explanation why I lost my last post. I am back home from vacation in Palm Springs. It is amazing what the low 80's can do for your mental health. It was so nice to see my mom and dad and my husbands parents. I now understand why they live in the desert. As soon as I got off the plane, I felt the stress of the long winter just melt away. No more will I be a Debbie downer. There is only two more months until spring, and the subzero weather is in the past, until next year. I have been watching the winter Olympics and cheering for home town girl Lindsey Vonn. I am so impressed of all of the athletes and there love of there sport. I can't wait until, I have the opportunity to teach our future child how to ski, and introduce them to other outdoor activity's. Here in Minnesota to keep your sanity in the winter you need to get outside. The photo in the last post, and the one above are art ice houses. The event is called the Art Shanty House Project on Medicine Lake. Local artists build ice houses on the lake, it's a fun event. Today I have alot of projects to do around the house, I will give an update later.

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow

Today was a good day. I went to my agency this morning and I feel like I received some answers to my questions. We are officially in are region, I am very happy about that. I don't know why I became a little wacky in regards to the process of international adoption, but I have been over analyzing and worrying about everything. I knew getting into this, that it was not going to be easy. I broke my own rule, which was not to drive myself crazy. Anyway, I am starting to relax a little bit and learning to go with the flow.
Nick and I are going to visit both of are parents in California tomorrow. We will be staying with my mom and dad in Rancho Mirage. I am looking forward to this trip. This winter has been brutal so far, so the break will be nice. I plan to play golf and decompress. And if it rains, I would like to see the movie The Last Station it is a movie about writer Leo Tolstoy's latter year's. The point is I am going to go with the flow, relax, and have fun.
