quite a day
We had a very full day today. This morning we received a detailed update on our kids and then received a $10 parking ticket because we forgot to move our car for street cleaning. Peter went to work and got a lot done. Becky had lunch with our friend Michelle and her sweet little girl and enjoyed talking adoption with a mom who has been there and done that (and is in the middle of doing it for the 3rd time). Becky came home to discover that the front door hadn't latched properly. The cats had gone out, Midge got scared and went back in, Toffee got scared and went to into the neighbor's house when they opened the door. The neighbors didn't know what to do, so they called the cops. They got Toffee back in the house, but the cop couldn't get the door to stay shut. So the front door was open for almost 2 hours, but we were fortunate that no one felt like stealing the computer lying on the coffee table. We met Becky's mom at Costco because her membership is about to expire and purchased mattresses for the bunk beds. We went to Becky's grandparents and cooked them dinner because Becky's grandmother had a heart attack Friday and just came home from the hospital today. We picked up a nice oak work table that we got free through Freecycle and set it up in the study. Now Becky has a big work surface for paying bills, scrapbooking, or whatever else she wants to do. We put the mattresses on the kids' beds and then took a break.We'll post the new information about the kids tomorrow. We don't have energy to do it tonight, and we're waiting for some clarication from the woman who sent it.
