On The Inside


This is a picture of what I think my stomach and maybe my nerves look like.   We have 4 young women and their families coming in to look at our home Saturday morning.  Every square inch of the house has been scrubbed.  My back is sore and my hands are raw, but not as raw as the way I feel on the inside.

The case manager called and told me not to worry.  She said everyone is nervous.  I'm just hoping for things to go smoothly and for everyone to hit it off.  I've a lot going for weekend plans.  I'll try to update before, but if I can't, see ya Monday.

It's going to be fine. Stop making yourself crazy. (Another fine Arab trait).

Seriously. BREATHE...

In the words of my daughters, "Breathe, Mom, breathe." Fingers crossed.

Not to worry. I have all fingers, toes and eyes crossed over here for you, so you're covered.

Good image. You know it's going to be fine. Breathe. And breathe again.

It's all going to work out exactly as it should. If these aren't the right mix of women, better to find out now. You've done the hard labor. Put this in someone else's hands and let the universe unfold.

Well the worst of it is over and it went fairly well. One of the young ladies was an instant hit. One worries me and I think needs rescuing-but I don't need to be thinking that. Dad seemed abusive toward her. Yikes. We have two more visits scheduled for Friday. Today, we met three.

Thanks for your well wishes. I'm really appreciative.

I'm sure it will go well but I'll cross everything anyway.

Glad to see your commenting here on how well it all went. I have been sending all the good vibes I can muster up your way for the last several weeks. Whenever you did a post about all this getting in motion, I have been thinking about you all a lot.

Thank you all for your support. I did follow the advice to just breathe. A lot. We survived and will do it again Friday with two more women and one dad who couldn't make it Saturday. At least the ice is broken now-I should be an old hand at this by Friday.
