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.

Bits And Pieces

Mom got after me today to write a new blog post. Little does she know I've actually sat down and written about five of them but they always turn all dark and twisty and I know everyone is tired of reading about my dark and twisty insides.

I actually came up with a really good post last night. It was funny, full of humor and was cracking me up just writing it in my head.......but I had taken ambien and by the time I sat down to write it I was falling asleep and today it's gone. I don't remember any of it.

Valentina got her report card from preschool today. She got glowing reviews and is doing very well. Of course there are only five other students and two of them are the teachers kids but that's beside the point :) I adore her teacher, she's so kind and sweet. I'm very fortunate to have wonderful teachers for both of the kids.

I'm trying to sell our 1993 Toyota 4Runner and had it on craigslist listed at $3100. I had one person call and actually come out and test drive it. He didn't buy it so I decided to delete all the posts I had on craigslist and jacked up the price to $4,500. Nothing.....until yesterday after I lowered the price to $4,000. We have someone coming to look at it Saturday. Woohoo!!!! Hopefully we can finally get rid of it since it's an extra, extra vehicle for us.

Oh!!!! Norm got into a car accident!!!! This was about 2 weeks ago. It happened about 5 blocks from our house at a nasty intersection that has at least one wreck a week. He's ok and they are still determining if his work car is fixable or totaled.

So that's about it. Damn, I wish I could remember my funny post, this one isn't dark and twisty but it sure is boring. I'm tempted to delete it altogether but I don't want to hear Beya tell me again that I need to write something.
