71

That's how many days are left between the referral cutoff date issued today and my log in date! It doesn't seem like many days but in reality it could be another 6 or 7 months before my Abby day...... Referrals came out today for the log in dates of September 9th through September 27th. Yes another 3 months it has taken to get through 1 months worth of log in dates (even if next months referrals only have 3 days of September along with some of October). Oh well with each month I get closer and at times it seems like I am really close and not even ready yet! So I wait but I feel like time is going to speed up for me now. I hope this feeling lasts!!

On a related note. Tonight I took the Christmas candles out of my windows. I left one up though in Abby's room. I will keep it lit until she finally gets home........

The candle in Abby's room is a beautiful idea!

I hope that 71 days flies by for you.

I think June may be your month! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you and wish upon a star. This is your year, Jenny!!!

Keep positive!! I love to hear that when I read your blog entries. Time will creep up on you and no, you probably won't be "ready", but that is good. No one is ever ready... I know it sounds silly, but as a first time parent, I don't care how "prepared" you are, you are never ready until that baby is in your arms... and then that moment you will know that no matter what is left to do, it is nominal. As soon as Abby is IN YOUR ARMS you won't be ready. Do you get what I am saying??? I miss you girl. You need to come up and have a girls night with Laurie and me.

71 does seem like nothing. Oh how the CCAA crawls through the dates, though! You are on the final stretch though and better start finishing things up before Abby gets here! =)

So sorry it's taking so long to receive your referral for Abby. I check in all the time to see if you've gotten it yet. I love the idea of leaving a candle up in her rom until she comes home. Beautiful!

I like the candle idea, too. You're getting close. Hang in.
And definitely take this last little bit of time to get your affairs in order, take a trip, be reckless and lazy, sleep late, go out to dinner, take a bubble bath... all the things that will change drastically when you throw a baby into the mix. :)
