The weeks stinks..

Gas just went to $3.09. Whaaaaaaaa? Is it because of the hurricane in New Orleans? Unbelievable.

No baby yet. Her latest due date is in a few days from now--she has a Dr. appointment tomorrow. Maybe that will get things going. Things are very up in the air right now and life is pretty chaotic. With any luck we will be in Chicago in the next few days. Either way, I won't be blogging for a while but check back in a few weeks because I will have a really, really good story for you (even if this thing works out there are lots of dramatic details).

Cheers!

I know we don't know each other, but I just want to wish you well with your expected new baby. We waited impatiently with my brother and his wife for a couple of years before they finally got their baby--and it was amazing to look at all the events (yes, most of them dramatic) that transpired before they got the one who really was their baby (Sadie, 10 months). They suprised all of us with her at Thanksgiving and of course we all love her to pieces. I hope you experience the same sort of joy when you get to hold your little one in your arms. God bless!

Thank you for your kind words. Trust me, after you read the saga of this adoption, you will understand why I appreciate them so much.

Thanks for reading and commenting. I have appreciated all your your comments (and the ones on my friend Lisa's site). :-)

Hang on Rebecca. I have no idea how you are doing emotionally, spiritually, mentally, physically, but just hang on. You seem to always do that with grace and understanding and wisdom. (Even if that's just on the outside, it's ok!) I'm tellin' ya, you've got a best-selling book on your hands. "What to expect when you think you're expecting but then you're not, then you are, then it's happening, then it's not, then it might be but you're not sure, then it's definitely not, but then it is again. . . ."

I'd buy that book!

Wendy, you are hired. The problem is that I would never write it...you are hired to be a ghost writer...and I LOVE the title.

Lets just say that we aren't the only family that she has been working with and taking money from. Not even close. This spans many months and many states......

With that little tease, you will ALL be checking back for the full story, huh?

Bek,
We're all thinking of you and this is just a reminder if I don't talk to you today to go ahead and have that extra diet Coke and whatever else it is you will need to get you through the next few days. You are amazing and clearly the most interesting person we all know with the most amazing stories ;0) --that are REAL! We're all thinking of you---it is what it is!

I had no idea there could be so much more to your never-ending-and-always-enthralling story. I'll buy the book too, when the time comes that you can look back on this time with a smile and not a care in the world (except for royalties). I really do hope everything works out beautifully for you and your family.

Jenny Eckton brought me up to speed and I have to say that I am so praying for you--what I figure is that, somewhere in heaven, there is a special little Disneyland for all of us who had to go through extra crap to get babies. We are the only ones who get to go there, and it is required that we are mean and snotty and make fun of people with hepatitis C and 17 infants and talk about how much better we are. There are lots of free churros and we are thin and can go on Space Mountain all day. Then we go home with our families and feel better. Brittany Spears cannot go there and neither can any other celebrity who gives interviews about infertility and then has a baby and walks barefoot through gas station bathrooms. Jon BonJovi is there, along with Ricky Schroeder, and they give us massages. It is a good place. I will meet you there, one day.

Bek...I saw from wendy's blog that you're in Chicago. GOOD LUCK! I hope everything is working out and that the reason you're there so long is because of those darn interstate compacts.
