NADA

Nothing in the air. Nothing in rumors. Not sure if this is a good sign for a huge referral batch OR just the way things happen. NADA.

To fill up my empty void, I give you some boring bullets.
  • Did my taxes yesterday. I am actually for two years in a row, getting money back. Not sure what I will do with this land fall (stretching the truth here) of added wealth. Be practical and place in quickly in savings OR spend it on a luxury item OR spend it on a necessities. So much to think about.
  • I have been working on getting rid of a lot of the "clutter" project that needed to get done. You know stuff like replacing the burned out lights in my NINE foot ceiling in the kitchen. Why is it the lights burn out at two at a time? Sorting through piles of papers (taxes, receipts, coupons). Mailing packages. All the stuff that weighs a household down.
  • Still working on Tate's room. I did switch what I wanted to do on the eight foot window valance. What I am ending up doing has been a nightmare to say the least. I am almost ready to scrap the whole valance and just leave it as is. Valance and nightmare to be posted with pictures when done.
  • My dad just turned 79 the other day. SEVENTY NINE!!! I look at him with youthful eyes and see my Dad as young. He is healthy and full of energy. Just scares me how quickly things can change. He is funny, loving and annoying at time. I do love him so.
  • It seems like a lot of people are cutting back on the blog reading. Lent or signs of our busy world. I wish I could join them. But who am I kidding with referrals and people traveling, there is no way I could give it up right now.
  • I need a new blog look. I am going to stop this blog and start a new blog when travel to Tate. Any suggestions for names for the new blog? Blog designs??? Would love some input.

Now if only there would be something in the air with all of March 2006 LID's.

How about "Tate Triva" for a new blog title? Looking forward to seeing you with your princess!

What about "Me and Tate the Great"? You are being so patient and constructive. You will get your referral soon. Chinese baby dust to you! (BTW: I am new to the blogosphere. I thought it was high time to jump out of Lurksville and introduce myself. I am at the beginning of the process, so compared to me, YOU ARE SO CLOSE!!!)

Donna said...

Ugh...the lack of news is frustrating, but it sounds like you are keeping busy. I need to a little of that de-cluttering too!

THE SILENCE IS KILLING ME!!!!! WHERE ARE THE RUMORS???????!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry to scream at you! =)

M3 said...

The lack of rumors is killing me! I check everyday just to find out when Tate will make her grand appearance. Sigh........

LiLi said...

I don't think you need a new blog...just maybe a new background to spice it up. we'll all follow no matter what.

79! Wow! My father is just 5 years behind him...it's hard when our parents get old. I wish my father was in better health. I....plan to live to 100 at least....he's ready to go because he's out-lived his friends - pretty sad.

I know Tate is coming! I feel it!

Briana's Mom said...

I can't imagine how frustrating it is getting not hearing any news yet! Ugh! I hope you get some good news!

Julie said...

How about Tate -r- Tot?
Looking forward to your big announcement!!!

Kayce said...

Tales of Tate...

I am so wanting to hear something!!

Catherine said...

I've grown to love Tate's Kingdom.

Still here bloggin and reading with your friend! Praying we hear more before the weekend!

Susie said...

Hey, I so hear you about the bogs being kinda dead. Maybe it's because all of us are focused on one thing "referrals" duh China! (I didn't say that too loud did I?) I'm anxious to see little Tate too. I keep checking for her. Darn it all! Come on China...throw us a bone!

The Brown Family said...

Lisa, I dreamed that we were on our way to China to get Tate. On your private yacht. Which would actually have had to be a cruise ship because your entire family was there and then mine started showing up too. I know that I have never met your extended family, but they were lovely people! And my family was behaving, too.

I know, bizarre. But you are on my mind :)

Linda said...

I've been lurking for awhile, but am poking out to say prayers are on the way for referrals to come soon. Cannot wait for you to start you journey to Tate and have her in your arms. I really understand now that Lauren is home how hard this is for you. Keep the faith and you will know the joy holding that little one will give you. Hugs Linda

RECENTLY POSTED ON RQ...if true, then next month IS your month! :)

Finally: A Rumor
February 26th, 2009
I’m hearing a rumor that the cut is March 6. It’s an R2 at this point. Hopefully we’ll get some other agencies verifying it soon and we can move it up.

Ginny said...

Seems I've been stalking RQ on your behalf - I'm so strange.
But, it looks like my 2nd best hope for is coming true. If it can't be this month at least they got all the way through the day before and there is NO DOUBT that next month is your month.
May the next four weeks fly by for you.
