Some of you have posted about the wait feeling like life on hold. I totally agree. It seems like life revolves around when we get Lauren. The ironic part is that we have NO idea when that will actually be. To me the hardest part about the waiting is not knowing when it ends. I think some people feel that if they were in our shoes they would just forget about it until the referral comes. Nope, no way. That's just not how it works. Imagine being pregnant, but you just don't know when you'll give birth... might be 9 months, or 12, or maybe 18...you won't know until labor starts.
Well, I've decided to take Christie's advice and LIVE life instead of circling in this holding pattern.
First thing on the agenda is a GIRLS TRIP to Disneyland, the official happiest place on earth (we can all use some happy right about now)!! This includes any waiting mommas, mommas back with their kiddos, and friends. The trip would be this coming Spring...maybe April. So far, Lisa, Heather, and Laura are in. How about you?
If you're interested, leave a comment or e-mail me. I'll add everyone interested to an e-mail list and we can "chat" later about the details.
I think this may be just what the doctor ordered! I've been on two trips already to meet bloggy friends in both Philly and Utah. I'm shy, so I really had to give myself a HUGE push to go, but I'm SO glad I did...both trips were great!
