About Byrning Bunny
I’m a stay-at-home mom/foster parent in a bi-National relationship. We are from two different countries and live in a third, CANADA, which we love. My wife and I celebrate three anniversaries because we couldn’t get married when we lived in the States. The anniversary we seldom remember is our WEDDING! You’d think it would mean more to us since so many people worked so hard to make it happen.
I live in the country and love it and so do all of my pets. The many birds and squirrels I feed daily appreciate having me here. I don’t think the deer appreciate having my dogs here. I received books about the weather, birds, lesbians and gardening as presents this year. I occasionally have time to research our genealogy and love meeting my cousins.
We are in the process of adopting our son, so each day brings new projects/worries on that front. We hope to announce this year that he is officially OUR SON. The circumstances of his birth have created many health issues for him, not the least of which are food allergies. He is allergic to wheat, soy, milk and peanuts, but does not have Celiac’s. This creates some daily challenges and opportunities for learning. So we wait for his adoption to be completed and enjoy him and any fosterlings that may occasionally grace our lives.
Education is important in our family, so we continue, both formally and informally, to learn something new everyday. My partner and I were both involved in organized Christian religion, unfortunately they don’t want us! Imagine that!? So the path to self-understanding and spirituality continues along alternate paths, with just a little sadness that our little guy won’t get to go to Primary and learn all the songs.
I’m looking forward to Spring, so we can begin creating our new garden and paint the barn (and my wife wants to PRUNE.) We have been researching windmills, wood stoves, generators and passive solar for our new (old) home. We’ve also been looking at tractors, quads and snowmobiles! We are currently watching the series 24, from the beginning, since we didn’t watch when it began.
UPDATE: After this winter, I’m sure plumbing and a new roof will move up to the top of our research and wish lists! We’ve finished the first season of 24, but have been slowed down by the reading challenges and video games we got for Christmas.
