Because it’s Monday I sat down to write a post about why we call our family blog Okkar Lif. I was thinking there have been some new people floating around. Nothing came out.

Because it’s Monday I couldn’t possibly find a way to tell you that over 10 years ago we moved to Iceland. Two of our four were born there. Iceland became a huge part of who we are, so we called our blog Okkar Lif…our life.

Because it’s Monday, I spent the better part of the day looking at pictures of other babies from Jack’s orphanage. It’s hard to believe what a small world the adoption community is. I can’t believe I may have seen the faces of the little boys who are sleeping in nearby cribs.

Because it’s Monday, I spent too much time looking at charts and graphs, searching for other people’s travel dates trying to decide what a realistic date to travel actually looks like.

Because it’s Monday, Ray is out of town and I had no wear to go, Bria is eating her dinner right now in her pajamas that I never took off of her today.

Because it’s Monday and I’ve done this several times for lack of a brain power, I might make it a regular thing. Would you like to join me?

What happened to you because it’s Monday?
