It's another day. Eight a.m. and the kids are safe at school and I"m safe at my very very quiet office. Three days a week I get to spend in an office my agency shares with a local therapist and it is amazing to have a place to focus without being constantly distracted by things at the house, primarily Rand. I know that people who work at jobs think that they would love working at home because you "never have to leave the house." The problem is that you never get to leave the job either. I was filing paperwork at 9 last night ... and between appointments was pretty much at my desk from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m.

Tomorrow I fly to Philadelphia to provide the keynote at this conference. I understand that it is an amazing group of adoptive parents and a very responsive audience, so I am excited to be able to be with them for a day. It will be a quick trip as I fly home the same night.

I must have jinxed Dominyk because yesterday I told the psychiatrist that he hadn't had a fit in the morning for over a week so then this morning he had to have one of course. Sigh.

Heading to three very busy weeks, and then a reprieve for a few months as we wait for the baby. I've intentionallly not scheduled anything from December 1 until January 23..... I think I need to catch up on some sleep and get sane again.

I would love to hear you at this conference... Since I can't get there, I will be content to have you share here how your Dr. visit went?
