12

Well, we are home finally and our walls are back in place. Not textured or painted yet but at least its not a construction zone in here any more. We also got our Christmas tree down tonight so hopefully I get the rest down sometime this week. For some reason the decorations not being down has given me some anxiety....I know, I am weird.

I also am pretty sure we are number 12. I am also kinda anxious about that as well. See, we have this agency website and we all put it what numbers we are so we can effectively stalk each other. Well kristi is 3 and nell ann is 9 but 2 on the boys list and neely is 11 (but not waiting for an infant).....other than that I HAVE NO IDEA who these other people are....which means after nell ann and kristi get their precious referrals next week (yeah I am calling it!) we are in the dark people. I will have relatively no idea when our referral will come other than bi weekly vague updates..... I am going to go crazy in a closet somewhere.......

ugh-my goal at this point is to have all the Christmas stuff put away before we bring the baby home-haha! I just haven't gotten it done yet and it stresses me out a little too b/c now it just feels cluttery instead of festive. so glad you are back home!

Silly goose! I think it's so much more fun to not know when it's coming! It's been torture to know the ladies ahead of me and watch them get referrals one by one. Now there is only one left (sweet Kim) and she'll call me as soon as she knows -- and then my whole world will be upside down until we have a referral. And who knows how long that will be?! We could sit at this number for weeks; it's happened before.

Be glad that it will be such a fun surprise! I wish I didn't see it coming! Enjoy this all -- at least, that's what everyone keeps telling me!

I totally understand wanting to get your Christmas decorations down. I am the same way!

How exciting that your numbers are going down SO fast!!!! I actually think we are going to move down on the sibling list this month and not up! :)

I'm with ya! I was looking at the spreadsheet last night and the last I know on the boy's list is NellAnn. #3-6 are mysteries...and I'm with you on the girl's list as well. Maybe after this/next week's calls things may get a little clearer or we're going to have to start stalking more :)

Glad you got back in your house! That was relatively quick. Congrats on all the movement - its so exciting to see everyone move down the list!

Girl..I hope the call comes next week..I hope you're right..but I'm thinking February now!! We'll see...I just wish I knew if I was #1 or #2 yet..oh well...So, Kim's husband's name is different on the boy list compared to the girl list...So there might be a "KIM" sitting at #1 for both, yet they are different people...Kim Hull is not on the girl list...and she is #1 on boys list right now...I'm trying my best here but not getting any where very quickly..I even emailed Julie S. and asked if they tell everyone about the websit because I knew nothing about it for a LONG time....A blogger person told me about it...Maybe all the mystery people don't know it exists...my thoughts for the day :) kristi

Did you hear anything from Kim and Cale?? dying to know if they got their referral or not, kristi

We're in total agreement with you about end of summer traveling. We've tried to set our expectation to travel before rainy season ... anything before that is very welcomed and hopeful ... so hard not to get caught up in the date-plotting game ... as in, we, in theory, if all goes smooth and quick, could be traveling by _________.
