But...


We should all get this and stick it on our foreheads!!

Hubby can be such a rock. We're talking about the wait. Now normally Jon always tacks on several months(years) to any story he's telling. But when it comes to the expected wait he inevitably always subtracts like 6 months. Then I have to correct him.

his response: you never know

me: But Jon, what if we get to 24 months and they tell us it's going to be another year

Jon: Then we'll wait

me: But...

Jon: We wait. We will get this child. If we have to wait, we wait.

And if ever I needed a reminder as to why I love my hubby. This conversation was it.

OOps, I published the comment before I actually wrote it. This is because I am going insane waiting!
Ann, your husband is adorable. My husband the other day, when asked when the baby will be coming said-He should be home by Christmas-I was like- Are you insane? Stop telling people that. He has no clue. I am glad you are feeling better. Have you decided on your vacation spot?

I am so suprised you are still waiting. Everytime I go to your blog I think maybe she'll say she got her referral! It's so funny how men can be so sweetly optimistic. They keep us sane.

Melissa said...

What a wonderful support system you have! The waiting is the hardest part.

Good luck on your journey!

Ann, I'm thinking of you a lot! You DO have to wait--because the alternative is worse! I hope it is soon! I think it should be soon! I'm praying for SOON! Debbie
