Starting Over

Do you ever come home from vacation and feel like you don’t quite know where to begin? It’s Monday morning and I’m surrounded by laundry, wedding supplies, floors that haven’t been mopped since the reception, and lots of children. I want to blog, call a friend, do the easy tasks, but I need to jump in to the most daunting things first and get them out of the way.

We had a wonderful vacation on Whidbey Island followed by appointments in Seattle. My nine-year-old niece, Jujubee, is visiting for the week and she and Sunshine are sticking close together.  If I can get enough done this morning, we’ll head to the pool this afternoon.

I’ll be back in the blogging groove soon.  Thanks for not forgetting me!

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    Oh Lisa! Coming back from vacation is enough to make me want to wait a very long time before I go on vacation again. I hope things clean up quickly for you.

    It was so nice to meet you and put a real person behind this blog. 🙂

      Heidi, yes, I'm thinking hard about whether camp over Labor Day weekend is really such a good idea. My kids think it is a fantastic plan…but at the moment I would rather not dwell on it. It was wonderful meeting you too! I'm going to get a post up about Dimples' and Eby's weighted blankets later this week. Thank you once again!

    We just got back from Guatemala (post coming soon) and I know how you feel! Usually, I lay around the house for a day or two then I get back into the swing of things!

    I am glad you had a great time. The picture is lovely. How wonderful for the girls to have a week together. I can't remember the last time we went on a trip …
