Well, here we are AGAIN! Another week has passed with no referral. Will this be the week?
It's sort of getting hard for me to post on my blog these days. I feel like every single blog post says the exact same thing. There's not a whole lot of excitment going on at our house these days and there is a WHOLE bunch of me waiting impatiently by the phone. Not exactly the most exciting stuff to blog about! :)
So if I post a little bit less for the next little bit, that's why. I just don't want to keep making post after post about how I'm tired of the wait and that nothing is happening. If you don't hear from me it just means that there's nothing new. When the phonecall finally comes you're all going to know, I promise!
Tomorrow I have my six month checkup at the dentist and I know it's silly but it's totally bumming me out because when I made my appointment six months ago I was almost positive that I would have our referral by the time I had to go back. Several months ago I made a list on my blog of all the milestones I had to reach before the referral would get here. I remember saying that by the time I went back to the dentist I would probably have the referral. I also said that I was looking forward to the season finale of The Office because I would hopefully have the referral by then. The season finale of The Office is this Thursday. I shouldn't have set up milestones for myself. It's too depressing to pass them!!
In much happier news, I had a really great Mothers Day on Sunday. Shawn and the boys spoiled me rotten all day and they were super sweet. Shawn always goes way out of his way to make sure that I feel extra special on holidays and I really appreciate that. He's a great husband and a great example to our boys. I'm lucky to have such a fantastic husband and such sweet kids. They make it impossible to be too bummed out. Everytime I feel sorry for myself one of the kids gives me a hug or says something funny and it always lightens my mood. I'm grateful for them.
So today I'm back to trying to keep busy and trying to stop waiting for the phone to ring. I'm trying, but not really succeeding. Truthfully the adoption is on my mind every second of every day. My baby is out there somewhere and I need to know who she is. Maybe this will be the week.
