Sorry guys, y’all are gonna have to wait for tail-wagging Thursday this week. The kids have both been sick since Friday, and I’m just pretty much worn out, what with doing the single parent thing. Plus I’ve got an extra 2 kids at the house today.
I am in a pretty pissy mood. Pissy about the adoption, because the latest update (although not from the agency, from another client) is that the new province our agency works in requires children to be there for 4 months, not the 60 days required by VN law. And that’s why we haven’t seen referrals. Pissy about the fact that the MOU needs to be resigned by the beginning of March, which is not very far away at all, and so far there seems to be no movement there. Pissy because our agency won’t have a US representative at the Embassy Meeting in Hanoi. Pissy because I’m still waiting for a package to arrive that was mailed out on the 8th of January. Pissy because its cold outside. Pissy because I miss my husband, and we’ll only have a few days together when he gets home before he goes to Albuquerque, aka, “the black hole that sucks you in and never lets you out”. Pissy, piss, piss.
But just so you know that its not all bad, I talked to a couple on Sunday that might be willing to watch our house and all its 4-legged inhabitants in March, after our first house/dog/cat sitter leaves. This means we may get to stay in America longer. Which means I may get to see Jeannie and Jennifer! YAY! And its cold outside, but its not raining, which is a positive. I’m sure there’s more, but I gotta go – the older 2 kids just broke my stroller air pump (while they’re supposed to be having quiet time).
