Sorry I don?t know how to attach clever little picture jokes ? but it?s almost quarter to nine so I figured I?d get the thread started.

I?ve been up since four something organizing and cleaning - particularly my food which I have an astounding amount of . I separated Indian, Chinese ,Thai, Mexican and South American, European and just regular American ingredients into separate large labeled shopping bags ?( since I currently have virtually no kitchen cabinets thanks to the endless renovation ).. yikes I have a LOT!

I AM a Total foodie ( and I actually think eating Exactly what I?m craving helps me eat less ) ?. But there?s a part of me that realizes I totally hoard food too . My refrigerator for instance is stuffed LITERALLY to capacity ?.for one person?

Question- What kind of car do you prefer to drive and why ? I always buy SUVs a few years old and gently used . I prefer to sit up high and have great visibility and need the capacity to carry things for my endless projects and large art items . My current car is a Volvo SX 60 . If I manage to purchase the farm I?ll probably be buying a small pickup truck for it like a Ford Ranger ( which is what I had before ) - low and easy to load

So far - just tea ( Chai tea Latte , diet iced tea) because I?m taking two intense exercise classes this morning! Ones a CrossFit very intense workout at the ? Badass Gym ?!( that?s literally it?s name ! and it?s a block from my apartment so I could be a regular ) It?s stuffed with Really loud music and really muscular sweating people jumping up on boxes and doing crazy core exercises. We?ll see if I can hang lol ( probably NOT ! ) ? then just an hour after it finishes I signed up for boxing IN THE RING !!! Yes I AM absolutely certifiable ? now you know what you always suspected lol .

I?ll eat something when I get back maybe leftover mushroom pea fat free cream soup and a salad then I?m heading out to IKEA so I?ll probably end up eating Swedish Meatballs and Zucchini/ Potato cakes and steamed veggies in gravy there.

Later tonight my friend is singing a Christmas concert so I?m looking forward to sitting ( and dancing) with his grrl friend and getting looped with a pitcher of margaritas!

The children are safe. I'll be seeing them soon. The process of becoming a blended family and legalizing little children is very sensitive and complicated.

Everyone's doing their best. It's actually nice to have a brief vacation after 24/7 caretaking for so many months ( while desperately sick ).

I'm amazed how much better I feel now but boy did that CrossFit take the stuffing out of me ... I did baby versions of everything except the running ... now I'm eating a bit of Whole Foods beef stew lightened with fat free mushroom soup mix and chicken stock and shiitake mushrooms and yard long Chinese asparagus beans . Yum! Then ice milk pop in hand ( with tangenrines in pocket ) im walking a mile and a half to the boxing gym

Ill answer this but this kind of response is obviously silly .

We know very little about each others lives here so criticizing people is ridiculous.

I never said I left my kids with a stranger ... but negotiating the process of making me a legal foster parent ( and them legal foster kids ) without risking the state arbitrarily and cruelly yanking them away without a moments notice requires some tough decisions.

Theyre with full time Very well paid loving nannies whove worked for this family for many years and with the family and big brother that they got comfortable with over many months . And theyll be with me over the holidays .

Sorry Ava I just don't believe any of it. I know the process of becoming a foster parent and there are classes that have to be taken, background checks, fingerprinting, home visits, etc.

That is done in every state. Children found a the boarder are put in immigration custody and they are not released into a foster home until every thing is in place and that is if there are no relatives in the US already.

There?s a strong possibility that the agency I got them from is not legitimate also because they demanded tens of thousands in cash after I had the kids for a month ( and even briefly took the kids bac****il I paid several thousand )

The state could very easily take them for a variety of reasons ?. among them that I?m not a certified foster parent like you say .

Im choosing to keep them in a stable home they?ve gotten used to and trust ? (in the beginning they didn?t even cry ) while qualifying to meet the demands of the system. And Im also attempting to legitimize them while looking for their parents in case they were trafficked .
