Another Day Down! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Ok,, we made it through Thanksgiving!!! With some form of sanity intact?!?!?!?! That just leaves 4 kids birthday parties in 9 days and Christmas to get through, OH YES!!! New Years Eve!!!!! How the Heck could I possibly forget that... and then MY moms B-day Jan. 1st

I have managed to get 99% of my Christmas shopping done....Just a couple of things left to hunt down.... And will mail out the rest of my Christmas cards tomorrow....

We decided that when Leah comes home we will plant a tree in the front yard,,, and then her first Christmas, we will also plant pine tree...

Danny is trying to figure out how to get the incriminating picture off of the blog...HA HA HA ROFL!!!!! Not a chance....

Some friends of ours are expecting thier referral this batch....Emmie & Mark,, we have our fingers crossed for you,, and a few extra prayers!

We are guessing that our referral will be the 1st week of Jan....

Yet More Thoughts on the WAIT!!!!!

Well here we are...... This wait is enough to send anyone out on a limb!!! Tomorrow we meet with Nancy (our Social Worker), to update our home study YET AGAIN!!!! As it expires Jan 14th,, and there is not a snowballs chance in Phoenix, that we will travel by then... I have already put in to redo our fingerprints AGAIN!!!!! So where does that leave us,, to wait and wait and wait and wait... Well you get the picture!!!

I have just ordered the rental on the jump house for Cody & Dylan's birthday party.. At this point,,, one little thing seems like an accomplishment... My train of thought lately seems to be jumping track,,, QUITE OFTEN !!!!

Thanks to ALL of our friends and family,, for putting up with our ramblings!!!! Mine especially! ! ! ! K Jo, Sindy, Emmie, Nicole, Cherie, Gerry and mostly dh, Danny....

I am sure when Danny sees the Cat Nap picture,, I will be hearing from him,, as he is at work in a meeting right now.....

Thoughts for the day!!!!!!

Maybe someone reading our blog can possibly explain to me, WHY, on earth I pull up the blog and just stare at it.......... Like it is going to change or possibly do a trick........ I have got to me loosing what last threads of sanity I MAY have had left........ And what am I going to do when it gets closer to referrals...

HOLY COW!!!! This is the 1st time in my entire life that the silence is so devastaing.... That is shocking to me....

Hugs & Prays to all who take the time to read my babblings...

Oh,, I think Danny thinks I have already TOTALLY lost my frikin mind! ! ! ! !

November 2007

Well, well, well,,,, what do we have here,,,,, Another batch of referrals that did not get as far as we were hoping,, it looks like they got to December 8th,, I was REALLY hoping for the 12th!!!!!

My head hurts, my stomach aches, I'm gouchy, can't sleep, I'm tired.... Come on, I don't want to be paper pregnant anymore!!!!!!

I AM STILL PRAYING FOR US TO GET OURS NEXT MONTH... Heart says YES,, head says NO....... No wonder my head hurts,, it is arguing with my heart.. and I am NEVER wrong,,, but,,, in this case 1/2 of me is wrong... That can't be right,, I am NEVER, NEVER wrong,,, just ask me!!!!!! LOL LOL!!!!!!

I do know that if this month was a killer on me,, just imagine what a complete and total basket case I will be this time next month... I did warn a friend today.. that if there is a message on her answering machine that is totally incoherent, to check the caller id...

Welcome Everyone!!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to see where we are in our journey, of adoption, to bring Leah home from China. We enjoy everyone asking questions, I know I never get tired of talking about it.......
