Hanging in there


And the rumors have started. I am trying so hard to guard my heart. The Spanish rumor board seems to think the cutoff for the next batch of referrals will at least be the 10th. I'm not falling for it though. They burned me last month with the rumors that some of December would be issued in the last batch. Rumor Queen has not rated any potential cut off dates above a R2 so she doesn't know either. I e-mailed my agency and they did not know either but speculated that they are thinking that up to the 10th could possibly be in.

I am holding up okay so far as I continue to guard my heart. Have to admit though that my chest got a little tight as I read the rumors yesterday. I think I will be more nervous next week when I'm sure rumors will be all over the place. At last I can honestly say that time now truly feels like it is speeding up. Hope I can still say that after I actually have Abby's picture in my hands :)

On another note, I weighed in today and lost only 1 pound since last week. I still think that is pretty good though since my monthly friend arrived yesterday. Hopefully next week I will have less water weight and therefore have lost more pounds. I hope so anyway. Now I'm off to work on my room. I am painting it again. Then I will order new bedroom furniture and a bigger mattress. I will post pictures once it is all together.

I've so been thinking about you while reading the RQ. (yes, I still go there even though our wait is over) I can totally understand guarding your heart but I sincerely hope you are in this batch. What excitement your heart must be feeling right now!!! The wait is almost over, even if it is next month. You are almost there.. Can you feel it?

Blessings!

Oh, do I know the exact place where you are right now. This might be a great weekend to turn your computer completely OFF (unplug it if you have to!), got to the library and get some books on tape or CD (of the stories you have wanted to read or have loved before), brew a pot of coffee and paint and decorate until everything is done.

THEN

go clean out your linen closet, pantry and under your bathroom counters. Hit the garage, while you're at it!

Just imagine, you'll have SUCH a clean house when referrals start arriving!

Saying a little prayer that the rumors are right and you'll see Abby's face next week!

We are waiting with you!!!

I am very optimistic that you will be looking at Abby's picture very, very soon! You'd better get ready!

Congratulations on your weight loss. It's hard during that time of the month not to creep back up.

I am on the edge of my seat with you! Hang in there. And one pound down is one pound down... Aunt Flow always gets in the way of bigger losses, it will catch up!
