7 Quick Takes Friday (+1)

(1) My life is NOTHING like I expected it was going to be.  Whew!  I would have been miserable!  :)

(2) I think 99% of the people that know me secretly (or not-so-secretly) think I'm actually crazy.  I'm not sure how I feel about that... but most days I err on the side of not caring. :)

(3) Sometimes adoption/attachment issues are super-HARD.  And it can be very tough to be open about those challenges. There aren't always words, and even if they were, they wouldn't make sense to 99% of the people I know.

(4)  That is when I thank God for that 1% that "gets it".

(5)  And hope that most of that 1% is the same 1% that doesn't think I'm crazy. ;)

(6)  Most days, I love homeschooling!

(7)  Some days, I hate it. ;)

(8)  The Michael Jackson Experience for the Wii is super-fun.  I put the kids to bed and played it for 45 minutes, beating all their high scores. Selam will be pissed in the morning.  Priceless!

  1. So you're leaving fb means that I have to acquire a new friend so that I can maintain an odd number of friends. But it's ok. I will continue to be your friend in real people land, which is cool b/c that's where the sledding and hugs are at.
    Also, just because I think you're nutty doesn't mean I don't respect and love you. I don't surround myself with sane people and don't intend to as they don't make my life more fun. Also, I cannot tell you how many people I have "impressed" with my newly acquired Martin van Buren knowledge. Goooooooooo Homeschool!
    Hug them kids for me and tell Smalls she's killin' me.
    HI! Mark!
