So turns out, when a babe is eminent, one way or another, mama bird has a strong desire to make everything as right with the world as possible. The garbage cans are clean, the toilets are scrubbed, the floor moulding shines, and the junk drawers are organized.
The best part though, is that in the junk drawer I found a *long* (like 5 yrs) forgotten gift certificate to the spa. I stopped in yesterday to see, if, by some grace of God, there was a credit left on it–and, ah ha–I am $52 in SPA CREDIT richer!! Can’t buy anything for the baby there, so I am goin in for my “pre-parent” facial on Tuesday!!
My house has NEVER been cleaner–between the showings that are still going on, and the little bit of insanity creeping in….I think I am in training to be a desperate housewife!!
I’m on vacation in Florida, and I am finally internet connected to share……
We’ve Been Picked!!! A different person than the one who had narrowed us down—this woman has PICKED us!! We are supposed to meet when I get back this coming week.
She’s due August 8th!! So, things will move quickly, I guess! No time to hem and haw about it–ta da and we will be parents!!
We are geeked but yet somehow subdued, partially in shock, and partially afraid that it won’t go through….but cautiously optomistic!!
I shall keep you all posted….but if one day this blog isn’t here and there’s a link to a baby website, don’t be too surprised!!
Found out that the birthmom considering us hasn’t decided yet (she must really be deliberating!) and also found out the our profile is still being viewed by others, which is good. They don’t take you out of circulation until you are picked and you agree to it. So that’s good to know!
Also found out that they call quarterly to , quote the phone message I recieved, ” see if you are still interested in adoption”….HELLO!?! We’ve paid you some cash, have had our home inspected, labored over a scrapbook, and have been told that someone’s been seriously considering us–why wouldn’t we be interested in adoption?!?!
Turns out that was just a poorly phrased message by an intern–really, they were calling to make sure that our contact info was the same, that we were still interested in a “soon as possible placement”, etc. Turns out some people don’t call when they move/change #’s, magically get pregnant or happen by a child in some other way. Go figure.
So long story short: it is all status quo .
