THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH

I am in a total daze. I hope I have been kind and grateful to those of you who have called to wish us well. I cannot explain how VERY VERY much that has meant to me today. Really. However, I have been in the middle of an incredibly busy work day and I am so spaced out it's like I'm on drugs (and not the good ones!!). My brain is fuzzy and I haven't eaten, and I haven't EVEN.FINISHED.MY.MORNING.COFFEE!!!!!!!!! Seriously, that's the kind of day I'm having. But I really really love every one of you; and am so pleased to be bringing Minh home to such a WONDERFUL group of people (even those of you that are removed by a few states!!). I hope very much to personally bring Minh to meet each of you (Britta and Alyson, - oh, and Mindy! - I'm going to try really hard to get to teh EC reunion in October!).

In fact, I am celebrating our TA by leaving work "early" - 4:00 - and TAKING TOMORROW AND FRIDAY OFF! That's right. I'm taking 2 whole days off work. I might not even work over the weekend.... (ok, who am I fooling. yes I will, but maybe I'll do it from home!). CRAZY!

OMG. I am SOOOOO excited.

Congratulations. You have been waiting so long. The feeling is unreal isn't it? Expect that feeling again when you finally see your little girls picture. I couldn't function the rest of the day at work when we got her referral. The smile doesn't come off your face.

Hope you leave soon.

Wow, what a roller coaster of a ride! Be sure to somehow document this day (aside from the blog of course) - I'm sure the Minute will want to know all the juicy details of your excitement! When do you leave?

Anything worth having is worth waiting for. I know that's easier to accept after you got your TA, but it is true. Long damn "pregnancy", eh?
