Can borderlines become foster parents?

Hubby and I have been talking a long time about becoming foster parents. I have my doubts if "they" will let me , though. I called the local adoption/foster place today. The lady wasn't in , but I left amessage for her to call me. It's been about a year and a half of us trying to get pregnant and I'm so frustrated. Maybe I wasn't meant to be a mom. At the get together, I rocked and read to niecey poo #2 and it fel tso right. Humph.

Well...

I survived my birthday. I am now thirty. I was pretty depressed about it, so I decided to "embrace it." We had ribs and cake and I finally cleaned the rest of the house. Next Saturday, we are having our very first party/ get together thingy. Hubby mowed part of the yard so I need to mow the rest of it today. I'm just really glad that the entire house has been cleaned for the first time since we've been here. It's kinda stressful having about twenty people over, but I'm going to try not to freak over it. Wish me luck.

so...

I mowed our lawn today! While trying to get the motor started, I busted and bruised my finger. When I was almost done mowing, I fell into a sewer ditch. Whatever was in there (don't wanna think about it) was so thick that I needed help getting pulled out. Did I mention that last week I was toting five laundry baskets downstairs and fell down the steps! My tailbone is still sore. I love the house, but man we have a huge yard and the laundry is downstairs.
I made this stupid promise to Hubby that if we ever got a house, I would mow the yard. I looked at riding mowers and they cost more than my car, so I will need to toughen up, and make more than one trip with those stupid laundry baskets! Ha ha!

In order to lose weight...

buy a house! Ha! I lost ten pounds since we've been in the new house! I think it has to do with the moving and cleaning and just having a larger living area. I have to go downstairs and into the garage to do laundry and we don't have a t.v. on the first floor. I've become such a couch potato at the apartment. Plus, we have so much more responsiblities. Good move, pigtails, good move. I have yet to buy a lawnmower, but Hubby wants to be in on the purchase and the mowing will help my chubby tummy, too.

In the new house

Love :
the deck, the view of horses from my office window, the garage

But, the last owners left it so filthy and Hubby has had to fix tons of things that could have been really easy fixes for the last owners.

The last three days have been so busy and stressfful, but things are finally calming down. We're going bike riding tonight in our new neighborhood and I"m actually glad I will be doing laundry, just so it can start feeling like home. I may post pics soon. Til then...
