Awkward adoption moment

We have to have pictures of the inside and outside of our house, so I went out this morning to get some sample shots before heading to the farm to get mums. My neighbor came outside all concerned. "Poppies! You're selling? No!!!!!!"

So I told him what the pictures were for, and he was so relieved. I think he's happier that we're staying in the house than he is that we're adopting.

Probably not a good time to tell him we're considering moving to a different town with better schools once our adoption is finalized, huh?

Re: Awkward adoption moment

  • Hah, that is awkward. It sounds like you have a great relationship with your neighbor though, that's really nice!

  • It's sweet that your neighbor is concerned about you leaving! But it's also pretty funny that that's the conclusion he jumps to... pictures = moving. Awkward!

  • That's so exciting!!    And you can come over my house to decorate also. 
  • I'm so excited that you're getting another step closer to adopting. Also, I'm pretty certain that we have the same couch, but in mustard instead of gray.
