Roll on September!

As we roll on into September, I thought I'd share with you the pic on my China Calendar this month. Isn't it fantastic?! Its the Giant Buddha at Mt Leshan in the Sichuan Province. The pic was taken by the awesome photographer Micahel Y@mashita.
Excellent weather?!
Too busy!
Mild nights
Break from school
Excitement... referrals?!!
Royal Show
I'm daring to post about the recent rumours... a 9th Feb cutoff?!! Oh My! Thats 9 days we can cross off?!!!! Only 13 more logged in days before ours?!!! Oooo~ a November referral MIGHT actually be a possibility? Thats only 7 days referred in Oct, then 6 in November?!!! Even if we work on averages (5 days per month) - we SHOULD still see Mini before Christmas... .just not in the flesh.
Either way, we'll be flat out til the day we see her, if we sell the house in the next month, with 6-8 week settlement... lands us right around the same time to move!!! Now my knees are really knocking!!!
On top of all that, I sold my car on the weekend, so I'm driving my MIL's car while she's away ~ so once we've sold the house, I need to go car shopping too!!!
Hmmm.... let me think if there's anything else, I can try and fill my days with?!!! Oh wait... Hman starts cricket next term and Miss M is back at basketball!!! All this with Mr T flitting to and fro between here and Indonesia!
...I need a valium!
**EDIT** ITS CONFIRMED! A family has received their referral, and they were logged in on 9 Feb 2006!!! Yipee!!! I am bouncing off the walls with excitement!!! SUCH good news! Cc.@a are "officially" 13 days from our logged in date!!! Come on Cc.a@~ you can do 13 in the next month, can't you?!!! My goodness, I think I would pee my pants, if they did!!!
Far out!!! I was just thinking, Mini has DEFINITELY been born, and is actually waiting either in an orphanage or with a foster family, just for us. Her Nannies or foster family will be talking to her about us! Gosh!!! This is really going to happen, hey?!!

Now you are really getting close! And you are a very busy girl right now! Things are getting exciting!

PIPO said...

We're almost there, ewe!

Hey, maybe that's the ticket. If I sell my house and move that would give me something other than impending mamahood to freak out about. I AM flipping out.

Lisa and Tate said...

Valium Prescription Information said...

My name is Kym Rose and i would like to show you my personal experience with Valium.

I am 30 years old. Have been on Valium for 30 days now. Valium helped me realize that many of my symptoms WERE anxiety related. Got prescribed 5mg every 8 hours for leg and arm spasms.(Only need at most 1 a day) Only bad thing is the vivid dreams after a few days of use.

I have experienced some of these side effects -
Giddiness, drowsiness.

I hope this information will be useful to others,
Kym Rose
