Where we stand

First, I have major doubts that the package arriving at our agency in the next few hours contains referrals. The reason is, there doesn't appear to be a package coming from Beijing to my friend's big agency in Texas. It also appears that no new packages were sent out Monday from Beijing to either my or my friend's agency. Thus, if the current package doesn't contain referrals it would be Thursday at the earliest that we would hear anything.

On to a happier note. Sunday Trixie and WaWa came over for brunch and WaWa was the handyman of the day as he completed the penultimate project in completing Baby S's nursery. Here he is in all his handyman glory finishing up the ceiling fan installation. Thanks WaWa you did a great job and we appreciate your help.

The final project is the closet. Baby S's closet is tiny so I have to move the current shelf and rod up a little higher and add a second shelf/rod unit lower down so that I'll have more storage space. I also have a small closet just outside of Baby S's room to which I'm going to add shelves so that I can store more clothing and toys within easy reach of her room. Maybe today I'll go buy a saw to cut down the wire shelves and possibly even get a few of those in place. Then I can start pulling clothing out of the storage room and get things washed and organized.

Well, I'm not going to stress over the package being delivered today and I'm going to get on with all the stuff I need to accomplish. I'm doubtful that it contains referrals but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Have a good day everyone and try not to stress as it won't make the referrals arrive any sooner.


  1. You have some nice friends who will do projects for you. How can you remain so calm? I'm FREAKING OUT and I'm not the one waiting for my baby. I will keep my fingers crossed that the package contains your referral.

  2. You are a freak, I'd be crazy with the wait. I can't wait for you to finally post Baby S's picture and her name, you're driving me crazy!!!!

  3. "SIGH..".... you are right - stressing will get us knowhere. I still hope you will get a big ol' surprise! Praying for you guys.

  4. Just wanted to say Hi! I'm so excited for you. You must be going crazy right now! Hang in there girl! Not long now..........

  5. Lisa I have high hopes a package will arrive this week! Thinking of you and sending big hugs your way.

  6. Great attitude. It is hard but you seem like you got it under control.

    Fingers crossed!

    Keep smilin!

  7. I am going nutty here with this for you. I hope things look up shortly.

  8. I am so proud of you for the way that you are handling this. I couldn't be so relaxed if I were you! This is when I'd be breaking out the Ben and Jerry's :-) I guess that knowing you NEXT helps :-)


  9. Good things come to those who wait... oh screw that... LOL We waited enough.
    BABY S. fly faster!!!

  10. A wise woman, you are. So...what's for dinner tonight?

  11. just has to be maddening! But you've got the right attitude...let's hope you're holding your baby's picture by the end of the week!

  12. Bummer Lisa. That stinks. Who knows what the CCAA are doing? I REALLY REALLY hope that the package does contain your precious baby. If not, we're all waiting here with you, Luv.

    Maybe you need to do some more cooking?!!!

  13. I hope I can be as calm as you when we get close to our referral time....AHH, who am I kidding?? I think I'm freaking out even MORE than you are....NOW!

  14. You really do have a great atitude.
    Surely it can't be much longgggger.

  15. I really hope the referrals are on their way soon! I cannot even imagine how you are feeling right about now. I guess you'll have to post some more yummy recipes to help keep your sanity!

  16. How nice to have a handiman around!!! You have a great attitude about all this...


  17. I'm so sorry for you guys that the CCAA is holding things up! You seem to be a cool cucumber about the whole thing, though.

  18. You are the queen o'cool! I don't know how you're keeping all your gaskets from blowing in anticipation.

    My gaskets are ready to pop just wanting to know baby S' name! ;0)

  19. Hang in there Lisa.... I know... I really do know... how hard the waiting is. But you are almost there!!

    I have so much respect for the way you don't let circumstances control your life. Of course it is awful, but letting yourself dwell on that just makes you feel helpless and furious. If I had to be stuck on a desert island with anyone other than my sweetie I would vote for you. He is a field biologist who cooks and can fix anything so I refuse to visit desert islands without him but you top my short list.

  21. Crossing my fingers that good news will arrive QUICK!!!!

  22. aaargh... you try to keep calm and i'll stress for you. that way you can finish all those pending projects without having a fit :)
    well, at least we can say you're one day closer to Baby S's referral. Hope it comes SOON!
