And it's snowing...

What have I been doing over the past several days? Speaking with attorneys, car dealers, insurance companies, case workers, and of course, my sweet husband. I have been trying to imagine life with four children under 1 year. I had a man tell me that he had four children and so he could sort of relate. I almost laughed, but I am too nice to do that. I just smiled and nodded.

Unless you are in a situation like that, you can't even begin to imagine what it is like. It is difficult to find someone who can handle two babies simultaneously without being overwhelmed by them in under an hour, let alone handle the situation with love and gentleness. I have little tolerance of children being snapped at (or worse) by an over-stressed adult. To make matters worse, while arranging for an attorney consultation on the phone in my bedroom, I heard a muffled cry and ran to the childproofed living room to find Cricket's legs protruding from the side of the couch and Peanut standing on her back merrily playing with a toy. I thought, they simply can't be left alone even in a childproof room if I intend to meet my objective of raising them to adulthood!

We have consulted with many specialists regarding this matter and still are not locked into a final decision. C wants to make sure that before we commit to this that we get the best possible legal advice. We did find an attorney who is licensed to practice law in both states in question, and he will be looking into the matter and getting back with us on Monday. In the meantime, we are trying to buy more time to get our ducks in a row. This would be so much easier if we weren't straddling two states and two court systems.

I really should be investing time in completing a credential right now, but I don't see how I will be able to complete it if we decide to take these girls. On a somewhat merrier note, my Jillian Michael's Body Revolution just arrived. We will see if that optimistic 1/2 hour/day is still available to use to my discretion. Today I read the following from Isaiah 40:31: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
