From Aunt Crazy to Mom Crazy

So I got to catch up with two, wonderful friends today.  I hadn't talked to Bill in quite a while.  In fact, he indicated that there was a moment not so long ago when his wife Jill turned to him and said "Is Anne dead?"  That's what I get for my blogging hiatus!  Rumors of my demise!!

One fairly important element of our catchup (after we got through all the camera talk!) was telling Bill that I'm in the process of adopting some kids.  After the fact sharing and excited talk, Bill wanted to know why, after making such a huge decision in April, have I not blogged about said huge decision??  I told him it was because I didn't think there was much to tell yet!  It seems to me there will be a LOT to talk about if and when children are placed with me, but until then, who wants to hear about the boring administrative details of the build up?  He said HE DID.  And he thought you guys would to, so here I am and here it is!

Now, historically, I have been quite proud to be Aunt Crazy.  I still am!  And I forever will be!  When you Google Aunt Crazy, you get me.  You get me and my friends and my family.  Out of the entire Interweb, Dr. Google seeks me out personally!  I have my Brother-in-Law, Matt, to thank for the name, and I love it to this day.

Of course, the Internet is the Internet (profound, eh?), and if you dig a little deeper, some of the world's other famous Crazies start to come out.  For the most part, these fellow Crazies are pretty cool, I think! 
Crazy Horse!  The Wild and Crazy Guys from classic SNL!

 And one of my favorites!  Crazy Harry from the Muppets!

But see, my life is about to change. 

I am adopting kids.  I've always wanted to be a parent.  I don't have any kids.  There are kids out there with no parents.  Bingo!  Well, it's not quite that simple, but that's the gist of it.  Two negatives making a positive.  I am reading everything I can get my hands on, talking to any adoptive parent who will sit still, finishing up my Home Study and re-furnishing my house.  I cannot WAIT. 

So what does that mean for you Aunt Crazy Blog readers?

Well, here's what I found out.  When you Google "Mom Crazy", you get much more specific results.  Considerably less cool, specific results.  The images retrieved range from Lindsey Lohan's Mom to Will Farrell's gutteral cry for more meatloaf.

Here are some of my Mom Crazy query results Google was generous enough to share ...

So, in conclusion, I remain Aunt Crazy.  An Aunt Crazy who is truly excited to be a future parent to a sibling pair who are currently in the foster care system.  Oh sibling pair, I hope you think it's OK that your adoptive Mom is a little bit crazy.  And I hope to meet you very soon!

It took me so long to comment, surely you must have turned to someone and said, "is Bill dead?"!

Way to go! I look forward to frequent updates! Crazy.
