Referrals are in...

It's official...referrals have been issued for log in dates through December 14th. This means they processed 6 days worth of files last month.

There are 64 days between Dec. 14th and our LID...that's 9 weeks. Since they have been issuing about a week's worth of referrals each month, we are looking at at least 9 more months which firmly plants us at August 2008. The only way it would be sooner is if we see some referral batches of more than 7 days. Isn't it crazy to think they could take 9 months to process 64 days worth of files? If that's how quickly I moved at work, I wouldn't have a job anymore!

I'm off today and just kind of puttering around the house picking up and cleaning. I don't know why, but when I'm off and at home I watch all the TLC baby shows. You know the ones...Baby Story and Bringing Home Baby. This morning, a young couple brings their little newborn home in an outfit that says "Worth the Wait"...God, if they only knew what a WAIT actually was!! I thought, you've GOT to be kidding me! Why do I torture myself with these shows??

Actually, last Wednesday afternoon Bringing Home Baby featured a couple in China getting their daughter and bringing her home. It was their first child and it was so cool to watch. Did anyone else catch it?

Well, I'm off to get some things done and make my day off worthwhile.

I am in shock that December is creeping along also. I just don't know what to think or how to react to this. I am addicted to TLC and HGTV.

I am forbidden to watch those shows. My husband would come home and I would be bawling every time. Finally he asked me why I watch them if they make me so sad? So I stopped watching them. It's better that way. :)

I can't watch those shows - the tears aren't worth it. I never can tell whether I'm crying because I'm happy someone else realized their dream of becoming parents, or I'm holding a pity party for myself. I'm sad December is plodding along, too. It sure would be nice if the CCAA strung together several good months in a row!

I watched some of them during the wait....mostly to see what happened once you finally got there....you do get some good info some times.....

I'm off today wasting my time too!! I should be cleaning something!!

Carol said...

Ok off topic here..I love the bookshelf....where did you get it???

Janet said...

I've never seen any of those shows, and it's probably a good thing....I would probably cry every time!

We are still "hoping" for April - May 2008. I am also surprised that December 2005 will take 4 - 5 months to process; guess I was too optimistic!!

Let's HOPE they start referring more than 6 days a month and you're united with Lauren sooner than August.
