Nothing to post.

Yuck, my yearly "Holiday Funk" (that's what I call it) has arrived. I get sad every year around the Holidays. Mainly because I never thought I would still be single at this point in my life. I have plenty of loved ones to celebrate with so I am definitely not alone but it's still not the same as having that special someone to celebrate with. This year my "funk" seems to have come much earlier then usual. Likely because I thought for sure this time last year I would be celebrating this Holiday Season with Abby. Instead I have uncertainty and the feeling that no one really understands what I am going through as I wait. (except my blogger buddies of course!) This feeling really stinks and I hope it passes quickly.

I know what you mean about the stinko blues...I get the same way around this time of year now. Fortunately, I don't let it get too much of a hold on me but any hold is more than enough. I hope your bluefest passes quickly too.

I know EXACTLY what you mean. Decided I just couldn't stand sending out Christmas cards this year. I will wait and send them out w/ Lilly's adoption announcements...whenever that ends up being....sigh
...love, Carrie

Me too. I told dh I didn't even want to put up decorations this year. I don't want to do ANYTHING until we get our child. It's hard, but we'll all get through this!!

I'm right there with ya girlfriend! I think my "holiday funk" was bad this week cuz I got to add in a little PMS in the mix. What fun...

I think I'm feeling a little blue this year too cuz my little brother (who has always been my "I'm gonna be single forever" ally) has a new girlfriend and she has a sweet little one yr old. (Who is really great & I'm so happy for him!) So now he's "a family" too. This holiday I'll be the odd man out for sure now.

BTW I'm very happy with my single status ... but the holidays make you wish for that "perfect dream husband and family".

I'm the same way, with a 12-5 LID I really did think she'd be here for this Christmas :(

Jenny, I can't begin to imagine how you feel. I can only liken it to the 2 years it took for me to get pregnant with Loghan. I know the waiting sucks, but like you said, you have a fantastic family, a ton of friends who are supporting you 100% and are all waiting with you. Your little lady bug will be here soon... and when she is here you will realize how much the wait was worth. As always you and Abby remain in our hearts and prayers. Know that we are as eager as everyone else for you to get that call. Stay strong... I know how excited Christopher and Erin are to have you this Christmas and to share in your experiences once Abby does arrive. Love you tons!!!

Yup, me too. Being the eternal pessimist, I figure my blues'll last through the Chinese New Year! Sigh...
Holiday Fest 2008 better be a different story though!

HOLIDAY FUNK!!I know what you mean...I wish all families were easy, just have one place to go, no hurt feelings, no challenges of who the children what to be with! It make for a whole lot of distress when it is supposed to be a wonderful and memoriable time with the people you love. I wish this for you and I hope that next year it is you and Abby.
Love you and Happy Turkey Day,
Nancy
