A Little Update

Ok, Teri...this is for you. (Though it isn't like you don't already know everything I am going to post!)

Lots of good news to share-

After 33 days in two different hospitals and one trans care center, my father-in-law was finally released to come home. Although he is still very sick, this is a huge relief (probably for no one moreso than my mother-in-law). At this point he is still having a great deal of trouble breathing, due to the pneumonia, but his injuries are slowly healing.

We had an Open House last Sunday, and although we haven't received any purchase offers on the house yet, we had many families come through. It is nice to have all the necessay projects completed and to be able to just sit back and relax now.

Another relief is that I am not enrolled in classes this semester! It has been so nice not having to juggle that too. And now that the holidays are over, I can actually breathe.

I also just received word that I got a promotion at work. It isn't much, but every bit helps!

And yes, I did return to the fitness class last night and it was great. I have now lost 5.4 pounds since New Year's. It is coming off rather slowly due to my absense of will power, but I will take what I can get.

Since we still haven't sold the house yet, there isn't much news on the adoption front. The latest though, appears that our start will be a bit more delayed than initially planned. Apparently a new fingerprinting law went into effect earlier this month. It requires fingerprinting and background checks to not only be done on the state level, but also at the federal level. They are anticipating this additional process to take approximately 10 weeks. We shall see.

Well, that is about it.

So happy to hear the news on your father in law! We are still keeping all of you in our prayers. And, I must say, that 5.4 pounds is amazing! Keep up the good work, my friend!
