We were so busy out celebrating, carousing and reveling that I didn’t mark October 11th with any special post. October 11th, 2009 was the start of this blog. Back on October 11th, 2009 I promised:
Long run-on sentences – check
Appalling misuse and abuse of the English language – check
parenting and family- check
adoption – um somewhat
gardening – not much, but you got chickens instead
cooking and crafting – not much
Tucson and the Desert SW USA – check
It warms the cockles of my heart to hear that my family check in here or mention they like something on my blog. My dad finally admitted that on occasion he reads it, although he worries that it seems voyeuristic. Dad, you may live just five minutes away, but this blog is for you too.
I was completely shocked and, I admit, a little bit thrilled when Lindsey of Tidbits Parenting recognized me as Tepary from Grow family. Grow! at a Crafternoon event. Okay, so that was totally narcissistic. Still kind of cool.
Thing is, in reflection I wish I could say more about our adoption journey. We seem to have stalled before we even got on the highway, but we’ve just stalled. A kick-start might just be around the corner.
Thanks for stopping by.
