If you follow me on Facebook, you already know our story.
For those of you who don't, let me fill you in.
On Tuesday, March 23 our realtor listed our house. On Thursday, we had two showings. On Friday, one of the couples came to look again and made an offer. On Saturday, we counteroffered and they accepted. The closing will be on or before May 7th as far as we know now. We have about a month to pack, find a place to live and move.
Please pray that I can find us a place to live until we find another home to buy.
Last week, Matthew was not feeling well. He had a cold and on top of it all he is working on getting some more teeth which added to the misery. He had a low-grade fever for a couple of days.
This was taken Wednesday night which was the worse day of it all. He actually fell asleep on Scott a little at 7 pm. When I got home from church it was my turn to hold and snuggle him. As you can see I took a little snooze on the couch too.
Once again I am sorry that my posts have been few and far between lately. We are working really hard on finishing our lower level. Last night we painted two rooms. You can just imagine how paint and an 18 month old mix. Scott was cutting in while I was rolling the walls. Just as I turned to get some more paint, I seen Matthew heading straight for my rolling pan. I said "STOP" but I was just a millisecond to late. Down he went right in the paint. Hands smothered in paint.
Here is the cute picture:
Here is the floor:
Sorry about the blurry pictures. They were taken with Scott's camera phone.
Oh yay, I forgot to mention, Momma was pretty full of paint by the time we got it all cleaned up.
We would like everyone to know that our blog was originally started to help promote the OPEN part of our adoption. We started it to give Matthew's birthparents, their families and all our extended family a glimpse into our every day life and the joys of open adoption. We are blessed to have a wonderful relationship with Matthew's birthparents and their families and we would not want to jeopardize that relationship in any way. Scott and I both appreciate your support but we will not tolerate negative comments that are left regarding our other followers.
