I got a nice little ego boost this morning from my husband.Â First he said that my outfit looked great then after a moments thought he asked if I had a crush on someone at my meeting this morning.Â I figured I must look nice if he is wondering if I dressed to impress another man â€“ he is not jealous but nice for him to wonder.Â Of course this opinion was shored up by the homeless man who told me I looked nice on the way to my meeting â€“ didnâ€™t even ask me for a quarter after he complimented me.Â Guess I should wear skirts more often â€“ itâ€™s good for the ego.Â
My meeting went well I suppose.Â But can I just tell all of you out in corporate America that powdered creamer is not acceptable?Â I donâ€™t care if it changes the color of my coffee; it isnâ€™t cream â€“ its crap!
Then I returned to the office to discover
my dealer Girl Scout mom isnâ€™t in today so I have to wait until tomorrow for my cookie fix.Â Fortunately, my day started out happy enough that I survived the cream debacle and the cookie disappointment.
You may all wonder why I am talking about compliments and creamer and cookies instead of the elephant in the room â€“ the Protocolo announcement set for tomorrow which could royally screw us all if they try to implement it.Â Iâ€™m refusing to read about it or research it or even think about it.Â Weâ€™ve been through this scare twice since I started this adoption and I just canâ€™t handle anymore drama.Â When and if they make this announcement, I will be a lemming and listen only to what my agency has to say about it.Â I will not comb every message board and website that I can find for further information.Â I will read strictly my agencyâ€™s opinion and otherwise bury my head in the sand.Â I canâ€™t believe that there will be anything else that will muck up or slow down our adoption.Â Denial is working for me right now and I choose to believe that ignorance is bliss because being well informed did nothing for me except begin eating a hole in my stomach lining and thin my hair a bit.
