Ready To Cross The Finish


Looks like the cut-off is 1/4. I have always thought we would miss it by one day. At least this means that we are guaranteed to be in next month (that is what my agency told me this morning, actually!!). I can't say I am not a little disappointed. I am so ready for this to all be over, and now the end is in sight. I figure we have about 4 weeks before we finally see her little face. I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
I feel bad for the people with 1/5 or 1/6 who were told that they were in by their agencies. That would have pushed me over the edge at this point I think. It's one thing to read it at the queendom, where it is called a rumor and you know it may not be true. It is something completely different to be told that by your agency, who you are supposed to be able to trust for accurate information, at least when they can get it. I would much rather have an agency who stays mum or says they just don't know than one that gets your hopes up and then is wrong.

Amen on the agency keeping its mouth shut if they don't really know. That would be very hard on us...

Congratulations on being NEXT!! That's exciting.

4 Weeks...Not too bad.
However TODAY would have been better! : )

Have to tell you that I was pretty depressed today. More than I thought.
Oh Well, not much we can do.

Carrie,
just read your comment on my blog and wanted to tell you that was the nicest comment.
It brought tears. Truly.
Thanks so much.
I just don't want to be the "pain in the a-- single mom traveling alone" travel mate.

I missed by two days too! Having been there, it was really a comfort knowing we were next and when things could be scheduled. Less RQ stalking too.

Now go and enjoy your last 4 weeks B4 becoming 4!

Dang! I posted a comment yesterday that apparently didn't take. Something to the effect of what a long month this will be.

Yesterday our dd asked (again) "but WHEN will my baby sister be here?" When I stopped and thought about it, I realized it's still probably 3 more months until she's actually HERE. Ouch. I feel your pain. I mean this as solidarity for your 10 pm post on 3/3....

But our time WILL come. It will. And soon. Probably the best thing to do would be to break all our internet-accessing fingers and then it would go much quicker, right? :)

Cheers,
Julie

Its horribly disappointing, I'm sorry. Have a pity party for a couple of days, heaven knows you have a right after waiting sooooooo long and then you'll find yourself realizing "OMG we really, really are next, for sure!" and you won't be able to stop yourself smiling and your heart doing those little flips because next time really is your time!!!!!
