I got a surprise yesterday that I thought was very sweet. Tim and I were at work and it got to the end of the day, and I was right in the middle of a project, so I called Tim and asked him if he would mind picking up the kids and bringing them back out to work. We don't bring the kids out there often, but I needed just a little extra time to get some things done. Plus, part of my "project" was cleaning out old files out of my file cabinets, making room for new stuff. I must have had about 150 binders that I needed the papers pulled out of and put into recycle, and the binders thrown away. I thought it was something that the kids would be thrilled to help me with. They usually like coming into work if I give them a project to help me with.
So, Tim was going to go pick up the kids. He said he needed to stop and drop something off in my office before he went though. Probably just another qualification book for me to review over the weekend :( It was not that at all... instead it was a beautiful pearl necklace and earrings :) I have been wanting a pearl necklace and earrings for quite some time. Tim said that I would get them when I least expected it. I really did not expect them yesterday! They are beautiful. I have a beautiful black dress that I wore to a wedding some time ago, and I had commented on how a pearl necklace and earrings would look great with that dress. I will wear it to church tomorrow and will post a picture. They are really nice! That was my sweet surprise. It was a nice pick me up to end a very tiring week.
Nothing new right now on the adoption front. We are waiting for our fingerprint clearance for FBI criminal background check. We are two weeks into our home study report wait. Hopefully we will get that soon. Tim leaves next weekend for Basel and then he is gone one week, home a week, gone a week again to Basel, he is home a week and then I leave for Basel for a week. So, there is not a whole lot of time in there for us to get things done. Uuuggghhh! I have to keep reminding myself that this is GOD'S timing, and not mine!
Today we are headed out to Cameron's football game. We are also going to go shopping for a bedspread for Sara's room. Hopefully I will find something that matches the paint I put on the walls :) Mental note... as much as you like a paint color, it might be nice to find matching bedding before you put it on the walls! Live and learn. I have never done that before where I had to find bedding to match paint - I normally do it the other way around... but this time I just feel in love with the fresh guacamole paint color. Now I just hope I can find the bedspread! I'm also getting "Sara Joy" letters to put over her bed. I really want to do the room in dragonflies. We'll see what I am able to find. Wish me luck!
It'll be a busy day today, but hopefully we will get lots accomplished!
