The funk is lifting....

Thank you to everyone that commented on this blog publicly or contacted me privately to offer your support. Unfortunately, I worried some family members. I was not ready to jump off a bridge or anything; I was just bummed and decided to express it to the world. I also did not feel like blogging for a few days. I am feeling better. I am the type that talks about it, has a good cry and then I feel much better.

I am still waiting on our golden ticket (I-171h) to Ethan. I haunt the mailbox daily and so far...nada!! You all will hear the happy scream when we get it :)

We had a nice weekend. Friday evening was our Century 21 South Florida Annual Awards Event and I was the committee chairperson. It was much smaller event than usual as there were not the award winners as in years past due to the crummy real estate market but it was a success nonetheless. On Saturday, Justin watched Katie so that we could catch a movie. That was the first movie we had seen in the almost 11 months since China. That felt great. On Sunday we took Katie to Parrot Jungle Island here in Miami. It was a gorgeous day and Katie had a ball. She loved the birds and animals, had a blast on the playground and overall was just a joy to watch. Watching her experience the simplest things with such unbridled enthusiasm brings us such happiness. I just giggle every time I think about her talking to the birds as if they understood her or imitating the monkeys..what fun. Blogger is not allowing me to upload pics. I will try again tomorrow.

Thanks again for your caring responses to my post :O)

I am so glad to hear that the funk is lifting. I was thinking about you all the time. I think you need to ring Angel and go and do some SERIOUS little man shopping. That will soothe those frazzled exhausted nerves.

I'm so happy to hear that the funk is lifting. I wanted to email or call you but thought you might just need time to yourself.

BTW, did you get your email from Gymboree? There's a great sale! I know that Ethan will need some things, & retail therapy never hurts!! I know that Shannon would just love another excuse to go out & about.

Glad you are feeling better - I knew you would feel better soon! Not much can keep you down - happy people are my favorite (and you are definitely a favorite!!)

Glad the funk is lifting! It's such a journey and it's ok to feel crappy at times.

Glad you had a fun weekend, it sure sounds lovely!

Please do not fret, you will make it. You are due to get that I71H very soon. Love your blog. Maybe we can have a playdate with our daughters. We live in Key Largo but are always in Miami taking Sally to different places.

Glad the funk is lifting and that you had a good weekend -- a good cry never hurt anyone!
This waiting stuff is really tough, and you are entitled to an occasional funk! But, glad you're back!!!!
