Major RollerCoaster

All Aboard!!! The 27th being in is now rated R3! That's right, a US agency is saying that the CCAA will match most of December. After last months very small batch, this could be very possible. I can't help but to get on this ride. That's 8 LID's! EIGHT!!! Come on referrals!!

Dreams, do come true. Don't they?

The rumors are arriving. The deal is Dec. 20th is such a big day that I honestly was bracing for a one day batch. These rumors are hollering the 27th and 30th. If we hit just the 27th, I would be ecstatic. Anyhoo, here's to hoping for more than a one day batch!!!

So, one of the things I'm doing during the wait is successfully eating with chopsticks. Yes, I've watched the video, read instructions, and decided that this is gonna take a while . This might be a good way to lose some weight. Eat every meal with chopsticks! I'll either master this skill quite quickly or shed a few pounds. Both sound good to me. Wonder if I can stick to it!

The White Swan Hotel

O.K. Here's some good news. The White Swan was suppose to close for renovations in 08'. Now they have decided to postpone until Dec 08'. And then they are not going to close completely. This is good news because the White Swan is like the Adoption Hotel in Guangzhou. It's is located on the Sha Mian Island and is geared toward the adoptive families. Shopping, eating, alot of places are within walking distance. This place is gorgeous. I am very excited about staying there. In the Hotel there's like 14 restaurants, a Hair Salon, pool, Beauty Salon,( the beauty salon does facials, body waxing and massages.) This is going to be a hugh experience for us from beginning to end!

The Wait

Since it is seriously looking like the end of 08', I have decided to adjust and get on with it. There's always things to do, so I am making a new To Do List.
1. Paint Kitchen (Razz's Tail has done a number on the hall.)
2. Learn to eat with chopsticks
3. Learn some more Mandarin
4. Restain Deck
5.Make a While A Way Checklist
6. Organize Closet
That's good for now. Being that I'm in the middle of planning a Baby Shower for my SIL, Right now I'll just start on the chopsticks. (wonder if there's an instructional video)

No Way!!!!

Looks like the CCAA really are trying to keep things from us. What's the deal? Why can't they post this info. This program is starting to get shady. I can't believe it. I chose this country because of stability and now look at it. With a late Jan LID I'm starting to think about jumping ship. This is driving me crazy. Three years of my life has been consumed by this. If this does fall through I don't know if I could convince DH to go anywhere else. Unless there's a program that produces the child before you produce the check! I'm so disappointed. Is this it? Will I ever have a Child? My emotions are running a little strong today. I'm just tired. Tired of all the promises that are not being fulfilled. And the dreams that I seem to be a lifetime away from.
