Mommy's Thoughts

Well,,, can you believe we may actually get our referral in as little as 42 days,,, THAT IS DAYS, NOT MONTHS!!!!!!! I still think it may happen by the 1st week of December.... I also think that the next batch of referrals due in about a week,,, will give us a good indication of when for sure we will get it...... We have already my plans that Danny will get the fax first,, and then he can email it home to me.... Since the only fax machine we have,,, I think Noah broought it on the Ark with him!!!! LOL!!!!

I do wish I could stay away from the RQ site!!! What an addiction! ! ! !

RUMORS ! ! ! ! ! !

First signs of rumors are coming in,,, I am SO TRYING NOT to get my hopes up... If they did, in fact, make it to at least the 10th,, then we should get our referral before Christmas.. I am SOOOOO excited, I can't believe we are this close...After over 2 years, counting an excruciating paperchase,, we are WEEKS away from seeing picture

And I finally started the 2nd quilt last night...

Come on CCAA,,, YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!!

Thoughts as we get closer to our REFERRAL !!!!!

Well as we drift into the end of October,, we have a VERY busy couple of months.. Bridal shower, wedding, and 4 birthday parties pressed into 2 weekends in a row,, AND 2 OF THEM ARE AT OUR HOUSE......Woo Hoo!!! Plus 3 other birthdays in November... I think Thanksgiving and Christmas are in ther some where..HA HA HA HA ! ! ! ! !

And for the next batch of referrals, I perdict that they will be here on Nov. 5th, a Monday, and I am guessing they will only go through the 7th!!!!! At best....

Our anniversary is Wednesday, hubby is taking the day off, and we are going to go out, and do what ever, No Plans, maybe start with going out to breakfast.. and just WING it!!!!! Last time we did that,, we both came home with new tatoos!!!!

Have started Christmas Shopping and in 2 days, I am 1/2 done (Thank God for internet shopping,,, it only works when you know what you are looking for though)... Just a few specific things I want to try and track down...

I have a few things I would like to get done before our referral,,, like Leah's second quilt,, I also would like to get my couch cleaned... I seriously considered doing it myself,,, YEAH RIGHT,, Who am I kidding?!?!?!

My daughter wants to do a baby shower after referral... so lets throw that into the ring along with the birthdays, holidays,, and whatever else happens to come up.. in our tranquile lives,,, HAHA HAHA ! ! ! !

And get this,, for some reason, I am rather clam,, even with referral rumors just around the corner, and all of what we have to do in the next few weeks...

Hugs & Prayers to all that take the time to read my ramblings!!!
