What a bust this weekend was. Saturday I was sick - very sick. I had a headache that just wouldn't quit and then I was throwing up all night. I came so close to telling Big T to take me to the ER. Ugh! I felt better today but completely drained. I was able to vacuum, dust, do laundry, and cook today but had to stop quite often to rest.

My oldest has a girlfriend who lives 3 houses away. Yes, this is nice because I know where he is but he is over there!! This has been going on for a while now and we were hoping he would hear the subtle hints we were dropping. Nope, he didn't hear them. So, we have decided to take action. He now has to spend 3 days here at the house. I originally said 4 but Big T said that was too much. 1 of the 3 days has to be a weekend day. It was so nice today to have him home after his ballgames. We actually ate dinner at the table - the 4 of us! Wow, I missed that. I enjoyed hearing the 2 boys laughing together and messing on each other. I've asked him which days he was going to choose during the week but they haven't decided yet.

Head in the Sand

No, not me!! I realize that our referral is a ways away and I'm okay with that (today). This is a friend who adopted his daughter a 2 years ago and is waiting for for his second one. His LID is August of 2006. He thinks that he will get his referral in May of 2008. MAY OF 2008!!! When I told him that my LID was May of 2006 and I wasn't expecting a referral until December of 2008 he just said I was crazy. When I told him that they have only referred up to November 25 of 2005 he said he knew that and by his calculations he should have a referral by May 2008. I sure would like to know what calculations he's using because I sure wish China would use them!! I mentioned that I could print up some statistics for him and he said no, don't, he doesn't want to see them. He's happy where he's at right now. That's all fine and well but why try to fool yourself? He's only setting him, his wife, and his daughter up for a huge disappointment. I just don't get it.

And what's up with this mystery agency getting referrals for February LID's?? This really makes me mad!! No, this pisses me off! So...who is this agency and can I sign up with them??

Because its funny

Lets see, what's been happening around our world? The boys are very busy. School started about 3 weeks ago and is in full swing. L has already brought home his first progress report - the kid is doing awesome!! All A's - a complete turn-a-round from last year. We are so proud of him. T is also getting all A's as usual. He still hasn't made a decision about college though. He wants to be a pediatrican but where to go to school is still up in the air.

The boys have also been doing sports - baseball and wrestling. They practice baseball on Tuesdays and Thursdays and wrestle on Monday's and Wednesdays. T is on a fall ball team and has double headers on Sundays for the next month. Soon wrestling matches will be gearing up and we'll be sitting in hot smelly gyms - oh the joy of it!!

On the adoption front - no news. Our agency received a new list of about 30 kids a few weeks ago. We won't see little T on this list but we are hoping the next one (November/December) we will. All we can do is wait and pray.

Pictures will be coming soon!

New Look

So I emailed Sara over at Wish I may Wish I might and asked her to redo my blog again. I needed some change, something different. I like the design she came up with though I might change the background.

Sara - thank you so much!!! You did a wonderful job!!

Senior Pictures

Oh my. T got his Senior pictures back the other day. I had very mixed emotions. My little man has grown up! When I pulled the pictures up I just stared at them. Wow - where did my baby go? Then I grabbed my cell phone out of my purse to mom and dad. Boom - there go the tears once again.

Hmph....enough about that crap

As soon as I can scan those prints I'll put them up for ya.

Ok - trying to get myself out of this funk I'm in, I'll talk about camping. We had a great time last weekend, just the 4 of us. We took the boys to Bush Gardens and had a blast riding all the roller coasters! Our favorite was the Griffin. OMG!! It was awesome!!

You go up 205 feet in the air, dangle over a 90 degree drop straight down, and then hurdle down at 70 mph. It is a great ride.

After that we just hung out at the lake. Big T almost bought a boat but decided to wait until next year.


This last picture cracks me up!! These people were sitting outside and watching TV!! Nothing like getting back to nature!

4 Lousy Days!

Oh my...4 days...that's all CCAA could muster this time around was 4 lousy days. I've been in a funk all day after I saw that over on RQ. I told my dh that we should just pull our dossier - forget this whole idea. He said no, of course but jeez, 4 days!!
