Keep on Swimming, Keep On Swimming

Remember in Finding N*mo Dory kept saying keep on swimming when N*mo's dad wanted to give up?? Well I don't feel the need to give up, but I am a tad overwhelmed at the moment. Tomorrow is my last day of school. I have not signed my contract yet because I am waiting to see if I am able to transfer to a school closer to our house. Having said that our school system is making staff cuts like CRAZY! Scary crazy. NC is going to have use stimulus money to build jails at this rate. Anyway that is weighing on me. I currently have a job at a great school, but I want to be closer to home. I will have to wait and see.

We leave Wednesday to go to CCH for Sophie to see her doctor. It has been almost 2 years since her surgery and we need to work out some problems she is having. Nothing life threatening, but something that can only be best handled in Cincy. I am lucky to have so many great friends that live in Ohio. (I would link to them but to be honest I am freakin' tired and am posting between loads of laundry) These gracious ladies have agreed to put Sophie and I up while we are in Ohio.....although one just came down with the crud, and we might need to do some juggling. No worries everything always works out....Right???

I also think I/we need to do some back pedaling with Sophie's attachment. There is just something not right. I can't put my finger on it, I just feel it. Soon we will beginning the attachment activities and structure outlined in "Taming the Tiger While it is Still a Kitten" by Nancy Thomas. I only wished I had listened to this CD BEFORE going to China. If you have not listened to this go google it and buy it! Your kid is worth it.

I will be on the road with Sophie and Krista Wednesday. ( Crazy K is flying in tomorrow to have dinner with me and Hannah and then she is driving back to Cincy with me and Soph. She is under the impression that this is going to be fun. I am not sure who told her that, but I am optimistic that Sophie will prove to be a good traveler like her brother and sister.)

Ahhh...come on in and join the attachment party. Sorry - it shouldn't be joked about - its tough stuff... really. I am sorry you are starting to experience issues too. They all will at some point.

Good luck in Cincy! Great buddies out there for sure. You will be in good hands.

I'm off to bed... (how long will I sleep is the question?!?!?)

It'll be fun. We'll make it fun! Although that might prove difficult if you make us listen to that CD. :P

My house is always open to you if you need it.

See you in about 12 hours!!

Sometimes it just seems like we're thrown so much at the same time. Will be praying for you and Soph as you travel to Cincy to see the docs. What a great group of gals you have to hang out with there! Fun times with K doing the travelling bit with you.

Sorry to hear about the attachment challenges. After A shared some of what she's experiencing I took her advice and purchased the Taming the Tiger CD's. Have downloaded them onto my MP3 and will begin listening to them this weekend.

Praying about your job and Soph's appts.
