It’s been just over a year now since we decisively decided to adopt. As friends’ pregnancies have come and gone and they are now in full pablum & pampers mode–how does one adoptive mom pass her (figuratively speaking) prenatal time?
Well, we’ve been in full “make-work” projects mode around the zook home for the last couple months since we submitted our dossier and are finished for now with paperwork. It helps to use this waiting period–where we won’t expect to hear any bit of news from our agency for months and months–to get some of those nagging odds & ends knocked off our to-do list.
From paint touch-ups to organizing the pantry and playing basement “tetris” to laying patio stones, you could say that we are living in “the projects”!
