We aren't doing much at my house to get into the Christmas spirit this year.
This isn't necessarily good or bad. It's just the way things are.
Not having kids in the house makes it a bit harder for me to get into it.
We had so much hope coming into 2009. The IVF was going to work, we'd have a little munchkin in time for Christmas.
The IVF(s) didn't work. But things started moving with the foster program and we got a placement. Which we then lost.
We tried to get moving with the adoption folks but they don't play nice, so we started looking around for another group to get certified with.
We'd hoped to have another placement by Christmas, but the current wrench thrown in with our foster license means that we won't me getting another placement any time soon.
A dingbat 21 year old totaled my car because waving at her friend on the sidewalk was more important than paying attention to traffic. My back is still jacked up from that.
All that said, its been a roller coaster year and it's more or less ending on a level spot, which is okay after all the ups and downs.
Here's to hoping 2010 is a better year, because I really don't need another one like this one.
