Happy 4th of July to my American contingent!
Enjoy your wonderful warm weather!!! And your freedom!
PS Early reports are estimating a 25th Jan cut off. C.c.A.@ allocated 5 days this month. Not terribly thrilled... but too busy to give it too much thought. OK, enough thought to estimate that if they continue to allocate 5 days, we're still 6 months off. 28 logged in days til our date ~ which is kind of freaky, as we're up to 28 logged in months at the moment! I've always said "2" is our number. (Approved 21/11/2005, DTC 2/2/06, LID 22/2/06) 2/12 suits me better than 2/2!!
Here in Aust. we get a "baby bonus" when we have babies. Recently the Govt approved adopting families for the same bonus (don't get me started on why they excluded them initially), it's a whopping $5k! But due to the recent change in Govt, the new tossbags have decided to "means test" the bonus as of 1/1/09. I've got everything crossed, that we do see Mini before Christmas. For all the obvious reasons (duh! the sooner the better!) but now there's $5k at stake!!!
