Well, supposedly the referrals have been sent but probably won't arrive until Saturday for some mysterious reason that they don't care to share in the queendom. I contacted my agency (because I am so sick of this wait and frankly don't care if I am a bother at this point) and they are attending a conference on Saturday so won't be in the office (of course, why make things easy now) so we will have to wait until Monday to actually get the referral. I know I shouldn't complain since we know that we will be getting the referral in a few more days, but this SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!! So what if they are in the mail I want them here, now.
Enough with the waiting without an end. Can't they at least say "Hey listen, we mailed 'em. They should arrive on Monday, have a good day". NO!!! They have to send them but not actually tell anyone they have been sent, heaven forbid we actually are allowed to plan something for once in the last two stinkin' years. Instead I get to go in every morning and tell my students "I don't think it will be today, but it could be, but I'm not sure." I planned to have my Anatomy 2 classes perform their immunity plays (sounds thrilling I know) and now I may not be there, but I don't know that for sure so I don't want to change the date they need to be finished yet. Plus it makes it heard to find faculty judges when I don't know if they are doing it that day or not. We made plans to attend a fair at Alex's school on Friday, got the tickets today. But can't be sure that we will make it because we may be in Boston. UGHHHHHHH!!! Why does everything have to be a big secret??? Do they not realize that we have lives outside of the adoption??
I can't wait to get this kid home and get out of this crazy mess. If someone asked me about adopting from China right now, I would scream "NOOOOOOO!!!!!! Don't be a fool, run the other way as fast as you can and never speak of this again". I would tell them not to even consider it unless they were interested in SN although I have heard that can get pretty ugly with several families vying for the same child. I know the end result will be worth the wait but not wish this whole mess on anyone.
GOD!!!! I need some ICE CREAM!!!!!!
