No News is The News

In my best 'woe is me' tone I report (humph) that a phone call will not be happening today.

Perhaps tomorrow? One never runs out of reasons to hope.

I only jumped out of my skin once today when the phone rang. That's pretty good. The other times I was able to rationalize myself into behaving calmly. Other than that the kids and I were engrossed in school all day. I welcome the distraction. Any distraction will do these days. This past weekend I was consumed by the Olympics and loved every second of it. It made the time fly by quickly.

This week Dustin and I celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary and so I have many welcome distractions to look forward to. I intend to give myself over to them fully. I'll keep you posted on how successful I turn out to be at it.

PS- I was so distracted that our 6 month DTE ( Dossier to Ethiopia) anniversary came and went without any mention. So here it is guys. SIX months! The mid point of our referral wait timeline.... Whoo hoo*

* okay, I admit it. That "whoo hoo" was written with just a hint of sarcasm and in a tone which hints at my being underwhelmed, but the rest was genuinely positive.

Oh Jen, it's gotta be one of the most stressful things you've ever had to do. Worse than being pregnant and waiting for sure! I love that you're excited and trying not to jump every time the phone rings. I'd probably be contacting the phone company every day to make sure our connection was still fine ;o)

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help distract you from the waiting!!

Congrats on the anniversary!

Seasons of waiting can certainly be tough. I pray the winds soon change and bring with them a season of movement. No doubt you are being prepared in some special, unique way for that day.

Be blessed,
Kathleen
