Odds 'n Ends

Woo hoo, it's Friday! The week has been so, so, so busy and crammed full of stuff that I swear, it was just Monday.
  • Last night I finished my second course towards my gifted education endorsement. So, yippee, one less thing on my schedule until the first week in January when the next class starts up.
  • We are having a garage sale tomorrow to help build our adoption fund. This, um, has been in the works since last weekend. Good timing, huh? Upon looking at our treasures that we will be parting with, we'll be lucky to make $100. Hopefully I'm being really sarcastic right now and greatly underestimating the value of our stuff. And since math isn't my best subject, maybe the nickels and dimes we collect tomorrow will add up to more.
  • Just 2 more weeks of school until winter break. And I can't wait! I am practically giddy with excitement about being home for two weeks and not leaving the Valley of the Sun.

There are many more things to report and reflect upon, but unfortunately, I just finished my breakfast and need to get out the door, otherwise the teacher will be late to class. And that never looks good . . .


  1. We are also taking a look at our finances to put together an adoption fund for a private adoption. Maybe you can suggest to family members to contribute to your fund in lieu of buying Christmas gifts? Is that too crass? I am pretty desperate so I'm kind of losing touch with reality... :)

  2. Congratulations on one more class down :) Now you can set back and enjoy the holidays with your sweet little boy!!

    I am anxious to hear how the garage sale went, if I lived closer I would have stopped on buy. We have several friends who have adopted and I remember one year they told anyone instead of giving them Christmas gifts just put any extra money toward helping them with adoption. It was so fun because from there several of us friends found out and would give a little as well. They have all been able to adopt some did domestic and some did foreign. What a wonderful blessing!!!
