Nothing New...

There really isn't a whole lot going on with me right now. We had a nice weekend spent with some family and friends. On Saturday, our neighbors invited us over for a murder mystery dinner party. I had never been to one before, so I was pretty excited to try it out. I had to dress as "Clair Voyant", the psychic. I ended up guessing who the murderer was and figuring out all the details around it, which was pretty cool. Or maybe it was just a sign that I have read too many books/seen too many shows like this?

I have been really trying to keep a better attitude the past few days and not allow myself to become so negative. Yesterday was the first test since I had to go to church, and I will say that I noticed a difference. It wasn't that I talked to anyone new or made a new friend or anything like that, but I just didn't feel so down and frustrated like I normally do after church.

Also, we haven't had any more e-mails from our adoption profiles, and I never heard back from either of the girls who e-mailed us before. It was fun and exciting to get two e-mails within a week of each other, so it kind of sucks now to not have anything. Oh well, at least I know our profile is being seen, right?


  1. The party sounds like it was lots of fun! I've never been to one of those. And well done on trying to have a better attitude. It's SO HARD, so that's quite an achievement.

  2. I have always wanted to go to one of those!!! Proud of you :)

  3. That party sounds awesome! I've always wanted to go to a murder mystery dinner... ever since that Saved by the Bell episode. I'm such a dork.

  4. Waiting is tough. It is good that your profile is getting out there though!


  5. We must've been commenting on each others' blogs at the same time. :) As far as the baby shower, I suppose it depends on how you're feeling. I thought that because my mom and mom-in-law and sis-in-law were so excited to throw me a party that I'd get swept up in it but it really didn't turn out that way. Definitely go with your gut though and if it seems like it's a good idea for you then do it. There's no rules! Oh, make sure the invites are specific and say that you're waiting for a match. I got many e-mails of "OMG, do you have a baby?!" or "Are you matched?!" and that didn't help.

  6. Hi! Here from ICLW and wanted to ask if you are doing domestic adoption? If so my sister just completed one! You can stop by her blog and see her sweet daughter

    I hope everything works out for you! When we were going through IVF I remember making the effort to be positive. It was hard, but it helped :)
