Some lucky families today received a wonderful surprise. Referrals arrived today and it appears that the cutoff date this time was for LID'S on or before November 21st. My congratulations to all of the families who had their dreams come true today! Referral pictures are starting to pop up and as always the babies are beautiful :).
As for me, that leaves just 17 more LID's until Abby day! (Actually I was wrong! There are 15 LID'S days until Abby Day) I'm hoping that the at least 7 day trend will continue for referrals. If it does then just maybe I will get my referral in November. That remains to be seen though. Rumor has it that there were some pretty big LID days logged in for the rest of November.
As far as my painting frenzy...... It was halted by work today. We were slow and I had easy patients that actually probably did not even need to be in the ICU. I kept thinking, "I should be painting!" Unfortunately I work tomorrow too. I so wanted to paint a little tonight but instead I taped off more areas so tomorrow night hopefully I will still be motivated. I will be sure to post pictures once I am done.
I don't know what is up with blogger tonight! It won't let me leave spaces between my paragraphs .

Oh, I've been wondering how you are doing. Here's hoping the rest of the time flies by for you, until you see Abby's precious face!

I've been thinking about you and am so excited that your time to Abby really is getting closer.

C.J. said...'re getting obsessed when You're at work thinking 'I should be painting'. Hah, I love it now that you've come to the dark side...which turns out to be the pretty side when you're all finished.

Wow...only 17! I'm holding steady at 95 days.

Don't lose your groove with painting.....I have half my kitchen painted and lost mine over 3 months ago!!!! IKES! I moved to painting the bacement's cooler down there on hot days. Good excuse as any I guess.
