Thank goodness it's finally 2008!

I don't know if any of you feel the same way as I do, but I'm so happy that 2007 is over! Now we can get back to our boring and wonderful regualar routine of life and look forward to knowing we will get the call this year!!! For sure!! And we don't feel like we're trying to get it before a specific holiday or occassion now. Sounds stupid, but it's a freeing feeling and much less pressure. It's almost like starting the wait from scratch, but with a much shorter overall time frame. So, I'm contemplating starting my count all over again. We've been waiting for four months now, but let just call this week ONE. And I bet we'll get our call before we reach week TWELVE! That's not that far away and I know we can do it! Twelve weeks is nothing in the grand scheme of things is it??

On another note... My keyboard hit a wall yesterday and just froze up and wouldn't work at all!
This new one stinks and it's making me want to stop typing - it's that bad! I didn't realize how used to a keyboard your hands and wrists could get!

Christmas was wonderful other than the fact that I was laid up for a couple of days with a horrific stomach flu/bug! No details needed! It seems so long ago and I really meant to post about all of our get togethers etc, but now I feel like it's old news and I just want to move forward! Nick was a joy and got soo many wonderful treats - it was a bit overwhelming though!

So, cheers to everyone and here's to a fruitful and healthy new year - and to those of us still waiting, our referrals will come, in a short amount of time!


  1. I didn't make it to midnight....you?

  2. No way, was in bed at 11:00! We're so lame!!

  3. You summed it up so well, my friend. I kinda like the new countdown idea-- day one???hmmmmm..

    It is coming, I can feel it:)

    Happy New Year!

  4. Happy New Year!!!
    We are all looking forward to lots of new things this year 2008.

  5. CHEERS PARKERS! Happy Fresh Start to a new year! Great things are in store for your family ;-)

  6. Happy New Year! I feel the same way. A new year brings the hope of all the good that is to come.

    Sorry to hear you were sick. My daughter had the same thing. No fun!

    Happy, Happy, New Year!

  7. Happy New Year!
    2008 is going to be a great year! You put it perfectly, it's refreshing...new start! You have a wonderful attitude, my friend!
    So glad that your family and your super cutie pie Nick had a good Christmas.
    But I'm sad to hear that you were feeling icky and had keyboard woes. It is funny how used to the keyboard your hands get. Stick in there- I need you to keep typing :) I don't know what I'd do without all your typing! It's good stuff.
    I commented below also- I needed to catch up a bit. We had a good, although stormy (literally), time in Hawaii. But, I'm happy to be back.
    Cheers to 2008!

  8. You come first! I just got home a couple of hours ago- and I went straight to my computer and commented to you! THAT'S dedication!

  9. I'm wanting to put pictures up, please give me more time :)
