More dreams

Well last night I had a long and vivid dream that we were referred a little girl who was roughly two years old. I had always dreamt (I'm not even sure if this is an actual word but it sounds right) that we were referred a little boy but I guess with all the girls being referred lately, I dreamt of a girl. I am kind of superstitous and tomorrow is 2 years, 2 weeks, and 2 days of waiting so hopefully this is a sign.

The weather here is still freezing cold. Brian and I went to the gardening center yesterday and bought another rose bush and two rhododendrens. We can't plant the rose bush in yet because it's too cold so we have to put it outside in the day and take it in every night. We're hoping to get out at the garden a little today but it isn't too pleasant because you have to wear your winter jacket and a hat. I'm starting to wonder why we didn't move somewhere warmer instead of sticking around here in Newfoundland.

The poll

I was just checking out the poll that I did several months back on when we would get our referral. The third option was May 24th, today, and no one picked that one and they were right as we didn't get matched yet. The last option was Canada Day, July 1st. Two of you picked that date and I hope that you're right!! That would mean we would only have just over one month left to wait. I dread that thoughts of not being matched by Canada Day and having to come up with another poll. That would just be too depressing so I'm putting my bet on Canada Day too!

This was a long weekend here so I don't head back to work until tomorrow. Brian was away with his friends all weekend so I went out to visit Mom as Dad was also away for the weekend. We had a great time playing cards, going for walks, and visiting friends and family. The weather here hasn't been good and today it was just above freezing for most of the day. I'm ready for some good weather so please send some our way!

Referrals are finally coming in!

Over the past few days two of my Yahoo group friends, Tangie and Chrissi, have received referrals for little girls. This is such exciting news!!! It is nice to see that things are starting to move again because it has been so long since there has been anything. Hopefully this trend continues and the referrals will keep pouring in. My fingers are crossed!

2 years

It's been 2 years nice ICAB approval. I only have one question - how much longer??

Finally, a few pictures

I am finally getting around to posting some pictures. The pictures from our kayaking trip are on our other camera and we've somehow managed to lose the camera cord so we can't transfer the pictures to the computer. Those were some of my favorite pictures. Hopefully the cord will show up soon. Enjoy the pictures. On top of Diamond Head

Home sweet home

We got back from Honolulu late Saturday night and we're still adjusting to the time change. I think that I'm pretty much back to normal but everyday after work I still have a quick nap. Brian still hasn't put our pictures onto the computer so I can't post any yet. Hopefully he'll get a chance soon to get that done. Since we've been home the weather has been terrible. We've had lots of rain and cold temperatures. Just plain gross! I'm ready to leave again right now! The weather is supposed to be like this for at least the next week but I'm really hoping that things will soon change.

I've been watching tons of hockey since returning home. My team, the Boston Bruins, are up 3 to 0 against Philadelphia. I could sit and watch hockey all night. Oh yeah, I do sit and watch hockey all night.

As usual, there is no news on the adoption front. I saw that a few people had posted on the Yahoo group that ICAB were now matching families who were approved in May, June, and July 2008 but it seems like forever since the last referral. Two years is quickly approaching and it looks like we still have longer to wait.
