The weekday routine that I'd like to see change

Starting at about 11 am every day, and then every minute that goes by thereafter, my stomach knots up just a bit more. As the day passes, I get to the point of not being able to eat and feeling rather pukey.

And if you can't tell by the chubby pictures of me... not being able to eat, isn't something that happens often.

I check my email every 5 minutes. all. afternoon. long. If my phone buzzes at me that I have a new email... my heart skips a beat. I rush over to check and then I swear at the person that dare send an email at 4:30. I mean don't they know what I'm going through here? ... how dare they tease me. :)

At about 6:30, I give up hope. The queasiness in my stomach turns to a lump in my throat and a feeling of sadness overcomes... and then I go eat some chocolate.

My stomach says... "now that's more like it!"

I go to bed, praying tomorrow will be the day.

I know this routine well now because it has happened every weekday for the past 6.

And I have to admit, it's getting rather old.

Come on Monday, let's break the cycle. TA today?!?! Please?!?!


  1. oooh deb-- that wait for ta is just brutal-- i cried, i think i got an ulcer-- i was just plain miserable-- which stinks when you have little kids who need you:( is this week 3 or 4?

  2. Waiting is SOOOOOO hard!
    When the wait it over you'll be amazed - in fact I am amazed at how fast your process has gone by.... and yet it seems like torture to be waiting for your TA -

    here's a little something for you to read while you're waiting, some of my favorite quotes....

  3. Oh I feel your pain. We felt that way both times while waiting for our TA. It does come and soon you will be packing for China!

    Your children are adorable and I can't wait til you get to meet G!

    Mom to two from China

  4. Hmm...checking in. Glad you are almost here. Maybe I could trade some grape jelly for some accurate sizing of a "mutual friend"? I would guess 12 months is going to be too big. I could probably go check.
    Email me. Hope I'll get to meet you soon. :)
