My attention span is limited these days. I can barely focus on something for more than five minutes. When that happens, it becomes extremely difficult for me to write a blog post with substance or do anything that remotely involves me thinking for an extended period of time.
So I don't know how much blogging you'll get from me this week (good blogging, at least). But I do have a few updates:
Joey and I had our physicals done yesterday morning for home study paperwork. I've been seeing my GP for 14 years. He knows all about our struggles to conceive, and he was excited to hear about our adoption plans. Both of us had to get tetanus shots. Wow, I forgot how sore those things make your arm! Other than that, it was an easy visit and he wrote nice things about us from a personal standpoint on the medical form.
The stock market is not making me a happy person these days. We planned on withdrawing the money from Joey's 401k at the end of the year to help us cover some adoption related expenses. We have most of the money we need for the adoption itself in a money market account. (I say "most of" because the expenses can fluctuate depending on the situation.) But we wanted to use the money from Joey's 401k to help pad our regular savings account a little more for the weeks I would be out of work without pay. Unfortunately, we've lost some money this week. Not much compared to some, but it still made a nice little dent. I'm torn between riding this out and just taking the money now. Thoughts from those of you who are way better at this financial stuff than me?
The trip to New York to the Night of Hope is booked. I leave exactly one month from today. I still plan on writing a post about the win. I have about half of it written and saved... see what I mean about my attention span? It's coming. I promise.
Okay, so that was more than five minutes. But that's about all I can spit out for now.
