I haven’t posted in ages. The last six weeks have been full of LOTS of changes in the Nolan house…because we have acquired a teenager.
One of my closest friends has joined Teach For America and is moving to Louisiana. Her daughter, who is much like a niece to us, wasn’t keen on going and really wanted to start high school with all her friends here. Hubs and I have often talked of adopting an older child, so we figured this could make the perfect test run since she’s already a kid we know and love. So we made the offer and it turned out to suit everyone involved. The last month has been a flurry of activity, cleaning out a bedroom, refinishing some furniture, getting all the legal stuff taken care of. It’s left little time for writing, which was fine as I was waiting on edits from Awesome Editor anyway.
