Thank you so much for your comments! We wish we could reply to them all, but we would fail miserably, and perhaps start talking to the plants.
In an effort to simplify we are going to start responding directly in comments more often so that you know we are alive, and to also answer questions where everyone can see them.
Exceptions to this: Questions of a personal nature and crabby comments will be dealt with in private.
Congratulate me, I just received my Real Estate* license. I am now able to sell homes and properties on the River Nile.
For our August or later LID families, we have some lovely Condos. These are great for group activities; nursery planning, quilt swaps, secret pals, etc.
For those families with LID's of May-July, we have some beautiful single family homes that just opened up. If you are anything like me, you are mood swinging like the devil and need a tad more privacy than the condo folk. These bad boys come complete with a fully stocked bar and 24-hour on-call bartender.
Now, for our April families I have only the cream of the crop. That's right, your own personal mansion with in-pool tiki bars, pool boy (or gal) who will hand out Valium and/or massages as needed, and Cordon Bleu trained pastry chefs well versed in the chocolate arts.
This is but the tip of the iceberg for these properties. They are gems and you shouldn't let them get away. As always with any property purchased on The River Nile you will receive enough glasses, rose colored of course, for your entire family**.
Act fast, they are selling like hotcakes!!
Call now: #1-800-DENIAL
* No I didn't ** If you will be needing additional pairs of glasses for friends or pets, we are happy to sell them to you at a cost of $29.95/pair. Please be sure to give advance notice. Group discounts do not apply.
Who me? Oh, why it's Eau d'Rumor Whore. I just bought it this morning. Do you like it?
After Friday, the most Craptastic® day ever you would think that I would run. Run far, far away from reading anything to do with the status of referrals from China.
Right back at it. Can. Not. STOP!
Searching for that glimmer of hope. That the person who signed up with the Sunshine Up Your Ass Adoption Agency, just got an e-mail telling them they will have their dreamed for child right on schedule. Said person will also be be kind enough to post this information for all to see and speculate on. Because that of course will somehow impact me right? Right??
This is our tunnel. There is light at the end of it, but after today it is really dim.
It has all but officially been confirmed that my agency will not receive any referrals this go round. Since we already received all of March and CCAA is not starting April, we are tough out of luck.
At this point I can't even hazzard a guess as to when our referral may come in. All I know at this point is that we will more than likely need to have our fingerprints redone as they will expire, and may actually have to re-apply/extend for our 171 or whatever it is you do. I'm sure it costs money.
