Nothing yet

I haven't heard anything today from my agency. I was afraid to email my coordinator again for info. He makes me feel like I am bothering him. Looks like the storks are at least up in the air and arriving on the west coast anyway. I have seen one referral posted on the December DTC board. Also at least one person on RQ has posted that their agency has told them that they would have their referral within the hour. It is looking more and more like I won't know anything until Monday at the earliest.

What a long weekend this will be. I do have to work tomorrow which shouldn't be too hard and will make the time pass faster. Then I am off Sunday and hopefully will be able to finish some of my to do list. I haven't been able to get anything accomplished today or yesterday. I did take a three hour nap today though with the blanket and stuffed animal that I will be sending Abby in her care package. Figured I would start to work on getting my scent on them :) so maybe she will recognise me. Unfortunately I do have to work on Monday. That is going to be hard. I told my Mom that she will have to monitor RQ for me and call and give me hourly updates.

RQ still hasn't posted confirmation of the official cutoff date either. I would feel a lot safer if she had moved it up to a R5. All in all though I still feel pretty calm. I need to see Abby's face before this will seem truly real. I can't wait to find out who she is :)

Finally! I weighed in today at WW. Down another 3.4 pounds :) That makes a total of 8 pounds lost so far!

Waiting right along with you! I saw on RQ that one family has their referral already. They were referred an 8 month old.
Keep yourself as busy as you can and by Monday, you will be changed forever. :)

Just a few more days and you will see Abby's beautiful face. How exciting to be so close to seeing your dreams come true!

Congrats on the weight loss -- that is such an accomplishment!

Just think: this will the last weekend without your daughter's face in front of you. Can you believe it? All of the wait, and in just a few short days it will be OVER!!!! So exciting.

Enjoy those naps, you won't have many after Abby gets home!

Lisa said...

That's great on the weight loss. Who knows how much you might loose this weekend with keeping busy until Monday. I'm soo excited for you and can't wait to hear details and see pictures.

Lisa and Tate said...

SO excited!!! Hurry up Monday!!

Wendy said...

You are so almost there! I can't imagine what it must be like to have to try and get through the weekend! Go see Martian Child. That will fill up a couple of hours! It's really, really good and it's about adoption.

Congrats on your weight loss!

Kristie said...

Excellent job on the weight. It sounds to me like you are nesting like women do right before they go into labor!!! i am excited and on my guard. i am nervous and anxious for you. most importantly, i can not wait to see sweet abby=)

Donna said...

Well, enjoy the longest weekend of your life! We'll all be waiting to hear your news on Monday!

Amy said...

I am right there with you waiting for "the call" on Monday. I can't wait to share pictures!

Today I have a wedding to go to and tomorrow I have to work so it will be a busy weekend which is good.

I teach kindergarten and my students know about the adoption so it will be so hard for me to
stay calm while I am teaching before and after the call!

I'm praying for us to be able to hold our daughters by Christmas!
