A Christmas Wish

Every Holiday Gavin writes me a poem/card, this year was no exception.
This was the poem in my stocking this year

A Christmas Wish...

This Christmas I wish for you, everything that I can't do.

I'll get us a baby if I can, I'll run to Vietnam and back again.

I'll build us a house with my two hands, I'll even follow our new house plan.

I hope the wait won't make you blue, this is my Christmas wish for you.

Merry Christmas, Love Gavin

Does anyone know?

I'm trying (really I am), to be patient. It's not a word I like much, actually patience " I hate you!" so there. All I want for now, is to know if our file has been translated/logged in. Is that too much?? Urgh! It's been 45 days since it left Ontario, and I want to know when I can start the OFFICIAL WAIT.

What Tarot card are you? Take the test! & Just because

You are The Hierophant

Divine Wisdom. Manifestation. Explanation. Teaching.

All things relating to education, patience, help from superiors.The Hierophant is often considered to be a Guardian Angel.

The Hierophant's purpose is to bring the spiritual down to Earth. Where the High Priestess between her two pillars deals with realms beyond this Earth, the Hierophant (or High Priest) deals with worldly problems. He is well suited to do this because he strives to create harmony and peace in the midst of a crisis. The Hierophant's only problem is that he can be stubborn and hidebound. At his best, he is wise and soothing, at his worst, he is an unbending traditionalist.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

I got this Tarot card thing from another blog, but it was awhile ago and I can't remember who it was. So if you are reading this fellow blogger Thankyou. I think it sounds like me (besides the patience thing)"Divine Wisdom" I like the sounds of that!
Anyway, take the test it will give you something to do for the next two minutes other than read blogs.

On other news, yesterday was hubby's birthday! he turned the big 29. We went for dinner with family, it was nice to be able to see everyone again. I think Gavin really enjoyed himself.

As for the house, we went for an inspection this morning. Everything looks pretty good and they've done alot of work over the last little bit. I'll post pictures after the siding is on. The siding looks to be the colour we liked so that's great news. The framing, plumbing,insulation and electrical is complete, and today it looks like they are planning on working on the drywall. Things are coming along, and head office of the home builder says our home must be complete by the 18th of January. Although, I'm still expecting it to be "live in ready", but I'm alright with that as long as we can move! I don't want to put our stuff into storage, and rent somewhere fo awhile.

As for the adoption, I have no idea what's going on. I know that we are within the first 11 files sent, ten of which are translated, which ten? I don't know. Our agency rep. is in Vietnam, maybe he's back now,I don't know that either. I'm going to guess we aren't translated yet, makes it easier to deal with the dissappointment. So the 6-9 month wait for referral is still on, wishing on the shorter end of that.To steal my hubby's favourite line "we'll see....".

Here's hoping that 2007 brings good things to everyone, and that everyone has a very happy holiday!Especially our babies that are waiting for us on the other side of the world, I hope they receive an extra long hug on Christmas morning.
