We were the closest family possible. Our world was turned upside down on 05/03/09 when my best friend, the person I love most next only to our children, my sister Trina was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. Her body gave out on her on 01/09/10 but she will ALWAYS be a part of our daily life and will continue to be in my posts. I started my blog to chronicle our daughter's international adoption from Guatemala and have continued to use it as a journal.

What you will find is my family trying to adapt to our new lives that were handed to us.

More About You Monday

I thought this was a pretty cool idea that Jen did on her blog on Monday. Yes, I'm a bit late, I realize it's Wednesday but I'm going to ask you to post a few things about YOU.



1. If you had to be stranded somewhere (NOT your house), where would you choose?

2. If you had an unlimited amount of ONE food, what would it be?

3. You had only one album on your iPod to listen to at this place, what is it?

4. You have one tv show you can watch, which one?

5. You have one book you can read, what do you pick?


There. You're stranded in one place with one item of food, one book, one tv show and one album.


Speaking of More About You, Asa's teacher grabbed me after school today to tell me something. Yesterday they were discussing something about history in a different country and she wanted to show them where the country was so out came the globe. The teacher tells me "wouldn't you know, it's right next to Libya!" I covered my face and started laughing because I knew exactly what was coming next. Yes, Asa taught his whole class about what is happening in Libya, that the leader is killing his own people so we have to go in and rescue them. Then she added that one of the kids made the remark that he didn't want to go to Japan. Asa then informed them that they DEFINITELY would have not wanted to be in Japan in 1948 when there were other bombs going off (Asa knew the dates and more detail, I'm just paraphrasing what the teacher told me) and how England used a Tomahawk missile. I was laughing so hard and explained that Asa had spent Sunday with Joshua where the TV is permanently set to CNN. His teacher was laughing too and told me that she wasn't going to bother watching the news anymore, she would just ask Asa every morning what is going on in the world.


So that is More About Asa and here are the kids with their Pillow Pets.
