Aloha all...This week has been a roller coaster of emotions. It seems like there is a lot going on in the various realms of my life.
Monday started off strong and optimistic. I woke up to Whitney Houston in my ear and a gorgeous blanket of snow covering Mauna Kea and was inspired to get out for a morning run. The soundtrack of the day was "When you Believe". I was fueled by the idea of miracles.

Tuesday was a mixed bag, catching up on paperwork for my job, and still trying to balance my emotions on the whole baby conversation, while maintaining healthy habits. (Eating well, exercise, meditation, kindness to others, all that good stuff.)
|Efforts at being healthy: fried egg with fresh island salsa.|
|We were too busy to do much meal planning, so we threw a dinner together.|
Salad with hard boiled eggs, feta, pepperocinis and bacon wrapped scallops. Nom Nom Nom!!
|Friends since elementary school. Auntie Di has been lifting heavy weights,|
so picking up the Birthday Princess was nuthin. ;)
Friday night with family and friends was a totally appropriate way to wrap up the week. H couldn't help herself and began talking with our aunties about the adoption discussion, and the possibility of going through foster care licensure in the meantime. Which led to more discussion about what that entails.... to be continued.
