I don't have an excuse this time.
No alien abductions...or deep-sleep syndromes.
Just...didn't have anything nice to say. So, as my mother always suggested I try every now and then...I chose not to say anything at all.
It pretty much ruins my chances of every being one of those blogger that thousands of people follow everyday...all the while commenting on my blog

Truly? Adoption is hard.
And waiting? Is harder.
Add to that a major case of feeling sorry for yourself and you have a recipe for disaster.
A disaster I averted but NOT blogging
You can thank me now.....
Today? Nothing has changed. About twice a week I have a major case of the blues [where I feel terribly sad for myself and devour chocolate. or bread, or mashed potatoes] . Every morning, I rise wondering if this is the day I will get The Call. I still get angry at the lack of urgency I see in the adoption-world [though, I understand and respect the due-diligence]. I worry about my baby. I make pre-trip "Things to do" lists. And save vacation time. And think about buying Jessica Seinfield's book on discretely feeding my children spinach. And read attachment books. And watch webinars. And get CPR certified. And blog-stalk other waiting families...
So what's different? You most certainly are all wondering now.
Nothing. Except my decision to try to be positive. Even when I feel like Negative Nancy (no offense to any Nancys out there...positive or negative ones...)

And I was terribly disappointed...Until today. When I found this beauty:
Which I will use to create a picnic basket that will be the ENVY of all picnic baskets!
Just you wait....
So, here's to "Faking it 'til you make it" =)
