I slept in today after having a wonderful dinner with Stefanie from 'Never Too Many' and Kelly from 'What's Katie Doing Now?'. We had a fantastic Chinese dinner and wonderful conversation. I learned a lot of adoption details from these two veterans.
Now I'm off to check on blogs!

When Tim and I first started dating he told me point blank that he wanted another child. Our daughter Katelyn is from his first marriage. I already had Zach and Ty from my first marriage, and had a horrible pregnancy with Ty so I didn't know if more were in the picture for me.

Tyler had his first 'girlfriend' named Britney. Life was bliss for three whole days. Then at lunch, while Britney went to the restroom, her friend turned to Tyler and said loudly, "Britney is dumping you!." This is the account that I got in the car through watery eyes from my precious boy. He went on to say that she and her friends "shun" him. I told him to shun her right back. And he said, "I can't Mom, she's just too hot!"
Who does that Britney think she is anyway???

What do I do for a living? I am a Technical Sales Engineer for a telecommunications and data networking company. I sell larger internet pipes and networks that tie company locations together. Most days it's a really cool job. The past couple of days it's been a BIG challenge. I'm making it through though.
One great thing that happened today was that I was so frustrated when I came home that I ran. I actually put on my old running shoes and hit the road. I jogged my old path from years ago when I was an avid runner. It felt great. My butt was tingling....for me that means I lost some of my back-end. YEAH baby!!!
So, for now I am dedicating myself to getting back into the jog. My butt has been holding me back for too long. Thank you complete frustration for forcing me back onto the path!
