Catching up...

It’s been a while since my last post, so I thought I should check in.

--I am so excited for my friend PIPO!! She is in China right now with her absolutely, beautiful little girl PIPA. I get all teary every time I look at this picture. They look PERFECT together!

--I am sad about this months number of referrals. If things keep going at this rate it will be another 15 months before it is our turn. To think that would mean we would have to do our paperwork AGAIN is almost more than I can comprehend!

--My buds that missed the cut off this month you have been in my thoughts. I hope you know that. I can’t begin to imagine the frustration you must be feeling.

--Speaking of our paperwork, there has been a small little situation with ours. All I am going to say is, if this hold up keeps us from being able to keep our I797C I will be one extremely upset person. (Because I don’t know who reads this blog I don’t want to go into details here.) I can’t begin to tell you how tired I am of this bull snot!

--The colds and flu going around are terrible!! Most of my classes have been half full because so many kids are out sick. I was out most of last week with strep throat. I can’t remember the last time I had strep. It was as miserable as I remember.

--My mom is going in for gall bladder surgery tomorrow. I know all will be fine, but if you don’t mind sending a good thought.

--I’ve decided to start a food blog. You can find it HERE. I have wanted to post some things, but I feel guilty posting food here, don’t know why, just do. Stop by and let me know what you think.
Those are all of the ramblings I can thing of right now.  


  1. No no no! Don't say 15 more months for you. That would mean I'd be... oh lordy I can't even say it. I truly think you're within 12. I really do. Keep the faith, my friend.

    Hope your paperwork woes get ironed out. And I'll send good thoughts for your mom.

  2. You're going to get there friend! Next batch will be small day wise I'm guessing but after that let's hope they get back to 5-6/month if not more! Soon friend...soon!

    Cute pic of Pipo and Pipa!

    So sorry you've been sick. Yuck! Hope you're feeling better.

    Have prayed for your mom's surgery today and will again.

    Love and ((hugs))

  3. Oh I hope the paperwork situation gets worked out fast Stacy, that is SO frustrating and I will offer up a prayer on your behalf- for SURE. (Love, by the way, your term bull snot and am going to adopt it as I've decided to rethink the language I've been using lately- it is Lent and I want to make some changes in my life!).

    Strep? Holy cow. Haven't had that since HS- that's awful! Feel better.

    And prayers for your mom today, will be anxious to hear how she is doing!

  4. I'm sending good thoughts about the paperwork problems. I know how unnerving that can be. There has been a lot of sickness going around here too. Sinus infection, followed immediately by bronchitis. It certainly seems to be worse this year, especially for me. I'm off to check out the food blog. Yum :)

  5. totally agree with you on the pipo/pipa thing. So very happy for them both! Also agree with all the friends who are almost there and can't imagine their frustration. I certainly hope it isn't another 15 months for you.

    Hopping over to your food blog now. I LOVE your stuff!

  6. hope the paperwork gets straightened out soon. I'm preparing for round 3 - it sucks. I'm so excited you started a food blog - I love love reading recipes and trying them. I will let you know when I try one - I'm not a good cook at all but I can follow a recipe :)

  7. Keep us updated on your mom, saying a prayer for speedy recovery.

  8. I hope all is well for you mom post op!

    You've been on my mind and your day is coming my friend. Let me just tell you every bit of trial and torture was worth it (yes, even the flight home despite it about killing me ;)

    It just amazes me that I have this tiny little girl snoozing in the room across from me right now. I'm still in awe.

    'Bull snot' I love that one and rate it right up there with 'dingle dork' I miss you!
