I am a homebody. Two long weekends out of town in a row, and I am a mess. My blood sugars are playing that fun game called chasing the rollercoaster. Whee 355! Whee 45! Whee 306! Whee 62 again. And that whole losing weight thing? Um, did someone say something? So very much not fun.
My parents want to come up and visit this weekend and I’m torn. I want to see them and yet I have so many things I need to do before we leave for Guatemala (dates purposefully left a little vague for nebulous internet-privacy reasons, sorry.

I am trying not to be superstitious that it is bad luck to acquire things before he is home. It’s only before they’re born that you’re not supposed to buy stuff – right?
We got the most amazing gift from Bernard – a fellow PWD and adoptive parent. A soft stuffed kitty cat, Stack and Roll Cups for hours of baby amusement, and for the mommies – top-secret James Bond passport holders, a cozy neck rest for the looong flight to Guatemala City, gatorade powder and glucose gel for one mommy in particular, and that lifesaver of international travel – a large box of gallon ziplocs. Thank you so, so much Bernard. We are moved beyond words.
We found out that our case is out of family court, which is great. Unfortunately, we’re still waiting on pre-approval from the embassy before we can be submitted to PGN. It is nice to know that progress is happening, however glacially it seems to me.
And only a few more days until we are face to face with this:
