My dossier has finally been sighted in Ethiopia.  It went to Washington DC on the 11th of this month and although I was officially on the waitlist since that time it still had to some stuff to do in DC before being flown over the water.   It will now go to be translated and wait for my Babycakes.  

Nothing about this process is easy.  I think that I completed my application, homestudy, dossier and background checks in good time.  It took me 4 months.  But now the real waiting begins.  Court is closing next week and there are some families at the eleventh hour that are very anxious for court approval to bring their angels home.  I am sad for them.  I know that no one wants to wait.  We all want it RIGHT NOW.  I know that for some the wait is not long but for others it is UNBEARABLE.  I am typically a TYPE A personality, non-emotional individual, but this process has turned me into an MOMZILLA.  

I am obsessed with Blogs.  I probably have 250 favorites.  I am obsessed with Yahoo Groups.  I probably belong to 10 adoption groups.  I am obsessed with baby stuff.  I won't let myself buy much but I am obsessed with looking.  As a matter of fact, I was watching some baby show (2 moms and some Quads) and they had this great bottle holder that was shaped like a ring or donut.  I MUST HAVE IT.  I am obsessed with finding it.  Any of my 3 readers that know what the H*ll I am talking about, can you please let me know???

I am just obsessed with seeing her.  When I need to be studying.  For my LAST LAW SCHOOL FINAL EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   No I am not graduating yet.  I finish in December, but no more FINALS.  

To my friends that are taking the Michigan, New Jersey and Pennsylvania Bar Exam Tomorrow and Wednesday, GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  There is too many of you to name so each exclamation represents one of you.  Please the Johnny Walker is on me afterwards.  I swear.  Besides, I can still afford it, cause I still get student loan refunds.  And you don't!   

Okay that last paragraph was stupid, because none of the three readers of this blog are taking the Bar, nor does anyone I go to school with, EVER read this.  As a matter of fact, noone that I know in real life read this.

Ok back to what I was saying.  What was I saying?  Nothing.  (But I'm practicing on stretching my sentences so that I can get more billable hours.)

Thanks Celeste for the blog title.
