Heard from them

I heard from CC and O. I don't feel like I can go into details here, but they are still interested in the sibling thing, they just can't do it right now. They will probably approach the idea again in November or so, though possibly before. But it's not 100% out the window. Not sure where that leaves our paperwork. I still should just get it done.

Feeling a little weird about other parent friends recently. I'm finding it semi-easy to get along with people and have our kids play, but pretty difficult to be really close with anybody and to be on the same page about most things with other people. It's difficult to explain without going into specifics, but I'm not good at being lonely. Today I'm feeling a bit lonely. Today it's mostly because I'm a planner and I'm finding that people, or at least parents with young children, are often not very good at planning. I find this frustrating.

Anyway, things in general are pretty good. It's hot and that wipes me out. I'm not good at keeping up with my chores when it's this hot out.

Here's Henry and his grandad on a recent sleepover there. He really, really loves my dad. It's so cute.

I am a loner myself. Recently laid off, it has been challenging for me to come up with things to do that is not "just me & the kid(s)". Because I have similar issues with the parents I have met. Wishing you luck--and know that I am just an email away...

OMG!! I LOVE your cuttie pies. Both of them. So adorable.

I'm frustrated too with flakey parents. Everybody is busy. I get it but if I commit to something I expect the other person to do the same. I blame mobile phones. It makes it too easy to cancel at the last minute or sometimes 20 minutes after they were supposed to show up! ARGGG.

I'm sure it's tough to get going on the paperwork, especially with the uncertainty with CC and O. But once it's done, you don't have to think about that part of the process anymore, right?

I know what you mean about parent friends. I was actually thinking about some of mine recently and wondering if I'll see them once it's no longer about getting the kids together. It's strange, really.

Omg they so totally look alike - it's eerie!

And meeting other parents and being like-minded...it's hard. I've yet to find anyone like-minded off the interent.
