TJL did say today that he is nervous. And he kept saying 'its a big step'. And generally I got the impression that he is not all that keen, but he knows how badly I want it, so he is 'going along with it'. To which, I pointed out that, that just would not work. It has to be either both of us wanting it or not at all. I posed the question - 'would you prefer adopted children, or none at all?', and I was not too sure of the answer. He said he wanted children. To which I pointed out, that, then, was it not best to get all of the homestudy and checks underway now so we are good to go should adoption be our path. To which he agreed. I think, perhaps, that it is happening a bit too quick for him, despite the fact we have been trying to conceive for over 2 years, and I have been mentioning adoption for the last year. He still holds out hope for a child of our own, whereas I just want children, regardless of where they come from. And who, aside from God, knows what is going to be. We may have our own, we may adopt, we may just stay a family of two, regardless of which, it is in Gods hands and we will be happy with his plan.
On another subject, I did a wee bit of a kitchen tidy-up today, so I have chucked in a few before and after photos. I purchased a small two shelf bookcase for $12.50, which I now store my herbs, spices, and breakfast condiments etc. I think its pretty amazing how much difference it made to getting my, previously user unfriendly containers of herbs etc off of the bench. I am very happy with myself!
My new spice and condiment shelves. I LIKE IT! (and TJL does too, and thats what counts!)
