How to Escape the Baby Waiting Blues....Buy a House!

Yes folks that's right we have bought our first home. It takes me 20 seconds to walk from my front door to the edge of the lake! This house is a "minor" fixer upper, needs the bathroom overhauled, new flooring, some paint and then we are good to go! We hadn't intended to buy until after the baby was home but sheesh that's been taking so long we actually were able to manage this. The main floor is around 1400 sq. ft plus about 600-700 sq.ft. of basement. 3 bedrooms, 1 bath...and did I mention the lake :)? yes, I am in love with my home.

I was looking for a project to keep me busy in the coming months-guess I found it!

This is our view of the marina from the front yard, looking up the street.

This is our lake view from the driveway/yard.

The yucky bathroom.

Basement, also to be redone-but not until winter.

The kitchen is small but functional.

Looking into the masterbedroom-you can see the "ensuite office".

Our open concept living/dining rooms which I love!

So Unexpected

My heart is breaking for all of the families struggling right now with the news from Imagine. I don't know what I would do were I in your shoes. My thoughts are with all of you as you battle through YET ANOTHER hurdle. As if adoption isn't tough enough...

Ticker Baby Fell Off...

What can I say folks, we hit 12 months "officially" waiting this week. Of course anyone that knows me or understands adoption knows that we have been hoping, planning, saving, and working towards this adoption for the last four years. I imagine that it will be quite a while yet before we have our baby home. :(

So the ticker baby has returned to the front end...lets pray she doesn't have to fall off again before we can be a forever family.

I seriously need a quality project to keep me busy over the next few months....hmmmm what kind of trouble can I create?????
