FEELIN' GROOVEY

I am seeing some light at the end of the tunnel..... Even thought I wish the referrals were speeding up at full months.... I can get excited that more days were referred!!!!

I am trying to plug along with my head in the sand unaware of the countdown to when I will be getting my referral. I just keep saying sometime in March or so..... I wish people would actually PAY ATTENTION to what I am saying and QUIT asking me repeatedly when I will go to China to get Tate!!!! Before I even was DTC I told a close friend that in my dreams I would be going to China in the Oct/Nov..... I have talked tons to her about the slow downs and the frustration of the wait.... She actually asked me yesterday when in Oct/Nov I was traveling to China..... WHAT????? Are you not listening??? Apparently NOT!!!! Mind you, I know everything her two cats are doing ...... I just thought that when I was sharing my life she was actually listening!!!! I have taken my name down from the baby board at work.... I really got tired of people asking why February?????? I just thought it would be better damage control not to put it out there as a subject to bring up with me..... I love talking about this adoption and process, but I am so tired of EXPLAINING the length of time and being a puppet in the hands of the CCAA whims......

Referral baking should take place tonight or tomorrow..... I should post the recipe and pictures soon..... I've got a good one picked out.......

Why Am I feelin' GROOVY????? I just got done requesting time off of work with plans to do a few trips..... I will be doing NYC in August with my nephew..... and Oslo Norway in September for a quick weekend (5 daze) get away to see a good friend and family who moved there from my street here in SLC..... I have tons of Aunts and Uncles and Cousins in Norway since this is where my parents are from... but I will sneak into the country hopefully unnoticed..... I do have to see my FAVORITE Uncle Kaare and Aunt Ingeborg, but will swear them to secrecy!! It just feels good to finally have time off of the jobs and back to my playful travelin' self!!!

Glad to hear your feelin' Groovy all things considered. I'm actually off to NYC on Sunday!

I know exactly what you mean about people not 'hearing' you when you explain the wait. Even some of our family ask us all of the time when we are leaving. I figure at least they are asking.

I can't wait to see what's up for the referral baking!

I'm glad that you're scheduling some time off. You've been working so much!

It just seems people in the "real world" just don't get it or understand. That's why I love my blogger friends so much!!!!
We're getting there Lisa!! It may be slow, but we're getting there!!!

I too am tired of people saying "so, what's the latest with the adoption". I feel like yelling..."there is NO latest, our file is in a gigantic stack of files some where just SLOWLY and eventually getting closer and closer to the top - end of story until we get our referral, so check back with me in say about 8-9 months".

Glad to hear that you'll be taking some fun trips soon...you need the break!
