A little bit o' this and a little bit o' that.

Poor Mr. KJ has been sick all week. It started Monday with a lot of boogers and has continued into a fever and even more boogers. Nothing is more repulsive to me than mucus. I can handle poop, I can handle vomit, but boogers? Ugh. They actually make me gag! Strange, I know. But I'll change a dirty diaper anyday over using that snot-sucking bulb device. Just the thought of the sound it makes is making me a little whoozie right now...

I am getting a blog makeover! Once you are looking at this it will probably be in the new format. I love what Hilary over at Simply Yours Designs has done. It is SO me and SO KJ! So big props to her and please visit her site if you are thinking of getting a blog makeover. She was so quick about it and really courteous. She showed me different options every step of the way. I just can't say enough good things about her!

Lastly, I am still researching on the second adoption. Kevin and I had a big talk (yes, dreaded marital big talk) about our finances and our home. We are still trying to get some sort of help with our mortgage since Kev was laid off last summer. We also will need to move once we add to our family again. We only have a two bedroom right now and it is cramped even with just the three of us. Kev also has his business going out of our home now, so needless to say things are tight. Really tight. A part of me is so sad because I LOVE our little house. But I know that if we want to realize our dream of having a space for more children and possibly foster children we need to move. So anyway, we are blessed and lucky in that our home has pretty much retained it's value from when we bought it three years ago. We live in the NYC metro area so we have been less "shell-shocked" than the rest of the country. We also live in a very, very nice town that does not have a lot of turnover in the real estate market. We are hoping and praying that this will enable us to sell our home for what we need.

Hope KJ feels better soon!! That is a lot to talk about regarding adoption #2, but I think it's great that you are being smart and talking it out. Good luck with figuring out your best plan of action!
