The Way I Roll

*Edited version*
I pass by my blog every day to see what others are posting on their blogs and I know I have things on my mind to write about, but it's all a jumbled blurr!  First, I want to say thank you to my good friend, Jena (just had lunch and a play-day with her yesterday:0) for being soo supportive with letters, help with my t-shirts, and all of the good-friend stuff!  What a gift to have such a friendship!
I have been busily working on our dossier paperwork, so when our home-study is complete (hopefully by next week) we will be set to get that sent in.  This last couple of weeks has been a little bit discouraging as we have been notified that there is a possibility of some changes in our process....including the major one, which would take us to Ethiopia twice, rather than the one-time plan.  I would LOVE to go more than once if finances allowed it, don't get me wrong-I would love it love it!!  So I am refusing to let this news get me down.  I know that our God has a plan for everything and we just need to be patient and abide.  I'll try reeeaaalllll hard to do what I'm asked. :0)
And in the mean-time I am STILL working on the fabulous-o tees that I will use to raise awareness of our orphan crisis.  This is one project that I will push on until it's complete.  It's really important to me to get the word out there.....and also to help with our costs a little.  So hopefully that's soon-to-come!! 
We had our initial home visit last Saturday with the kids and Thursday and Saturday we will finish it up.  Then all of our paperwork will be checked over and we can add it to our dossier....which I should have all ready by then! Yay!  I tend to be an "over-thinker" about pretty much everything....and my friends and family are VERY helpful at pointing it out!  Thank you very much!!:0)  I am having a tough time making some decisions about the age and health of the child we intend to parent.  I have been praying for some guidance, but I know that in the end it will be as it's suppose to be!  Faith, Kendra!!  Sheesh!  All I can really do is have MY part done so that I am not the reason for the wait.  Because we ALL know there WILL be a wait! :0) & :0( 

The other thing I've been doing? Well.......anyone who knows me knows that I am trying to save the world, whether it be environmentally or otherwise!  
So here is an example of doing my part.......
THIS is my food to be recycled--it goes from our plates, to these beautiful, classy bowls on the counter-top, to the chicken coop out back.
 Then there is the garbage recycling, which hopefully most of YOU do??  
I'm not going to let the landfill build up on my account.:0) So once a week I load up all of the cardboard, plastic, glass, and metal in the back of my mom-van and I take it across town to the drop-off.  Hey.....I'm on a mission here!
Okay....and here's a ritual I started this past summer, which totally irritates my husband!  Because I won't be the reason why the landfill piles up, I am taking it upon myself to get rid of the things I can. 
So when we roast marshmallows in the summertime I keep the fire going with all of the unnecessary paper we've accumulated. 
The collection can tend to get pretty high during the cold months.
You will not find me to be someone to toss something that could be valuable to someone else (your trash is another man's treasure), or it is recycled.

THIS is what I've been doing.....a little Spring-cleaning (without the clean). Just trying to do my part!
is the way
