  • Here, have some bullets

    I haven’t done a bullet style post in a very very long time.  This is what life has been reduced to lately.  It’s mostly because I think my computer is dying and I don’t know how long it will hold out (please be until after Sweet Hope). In any case here’s my life lately. I […]

  • Adoption Awareness
  • Orphan Sunday

    Despite the issues we’ve been having in our house we know how incredibly blessed we are to be the parents of Oleg.  He has made our lives so indescribably wonderful.

Last week I decided that I was going to do all kinds of upgrades to Sprouting Off (I’ve been posting there quite regularly) and in the process […]

  • Thank you

    I want to thank all of you who have left a word of support for me.  It’s good to know I’m not crazy sometimes.  Just as a little pick me up the final(ish) profit total for Sweet Hope is $6023.  Earlier this year the board approved to send $3000 to Mirnoe.  The remainder of the […]
