I've been omnipresent

Is that even a word? What I'm trying to say is that I've been around, but I haven't. I have been sick and had elevated blood pressure for a few days. I haven't really felt like me. My body has a definite way of letting me know when it is stressed. It breaks down.... like a car.

But miraculously I seem to feel better now that our adoption is final. The ol blood pressure was back down to normal this morning so I guess I don't have to worry anymore. I feel better. Just a little sleepy because the sleeplessnights are now catching up with me. That is something I can deal with.

SO, happy news? (aside from the fact that OUR ADOPTION IS COMPLETE- did I mention that?) Parker's birthday is this weekend. He will be six. SIX. Where did the time go? I am excited to see all of our friends and family at Parker's party. I did the birthday shopping yesterday. I am now well versed in star wars stuff and Ben 10 paraphenalia. Storm troopers, clone wars, humongosaur, swampfire figures, alien goop. I got it.

Shopping for kids stuff is really fun. For a fleeting moment I thought of how much fun it would be to work in such a place.... seeing the happy faces of children with their new toys, running, laughing, skipping around.......... and then I thought of the kids skipping too much and then puking on the floor. The angry moms who just learned about the sold out toy they came to buy. Screaming, craziness, black friday sales..... Augh! See, I told you I wasn't really myself anymore.

While in my icky haze, I haven't felt very creative. Nothing significant to show.

I hope that the fog is lifting. I really think that I was more stressed out than I thought. But, it is over. The 6 year nightmare is finally over. And in the end, I have my family.
