Review shmeview

While I was busy moving, I found out that we're now officially in 'review'. Woo. I think.

Yes, it's a big milestone and it's great and all, but I can't see the end of the proverbial rainbow. I know, deep down (REALLY DEEP DOWN) that our daughter is out there somewhere (though some days, like today, I doubt it's going to happen anytime soon), I just don't feel all that excited about being in review.

We don't have anything to worry about with being in review (as far as I know) so I'm not nearly as excited as I've seen others get. Now don't get me wrong, I don't mean to downplay this, it's just that I'm not all that jazzed about being in review when we still have 2? 3? (who knows how many) more years ahead of us.

I think I'd feel a bit better if we had some sort of crystal ball time line as far as WHEN.

With the 'rumour' of the next batch being 5 days, I can't get excited about that either. The only upside in that is we'll finally be out of November 2005. Perhaps we'll be out of 2005 at the end of the year...who knows. *sigh*

Who knew that trying to have a child would take this long and cause this much heartache? Is there something wrong with me that I can't feel any excitement about this?

I don't mean to sound trite, it's just the way I'm feeling tonight. I'll get out of my funk soon enough I'm sure. I think I'll go to the kitchen and pop some bubble wrap...

Yep. I reckon there's a whole wad of people in the same funk.

Please, please, please ccaa allocate more than 5 days!

There is NOTHING wrong with you. The excitement has definitely worn off for me for the most part. Coping mechanism.

You go on and be all funky as you want. Ups and downs. Here for you and like you, deep down, we know this will happen. It is hard to see sometimes.


Keep smilin!

Maybe they will tell us something about ourselves that we didnt know. Like we were adopted or something?

It is hard to get excited about something that's still so far away. It's like you said, at least if there was some sort of definite timeline, it would be easier to get excited.

I agree with Mark, popping bubbles makes everything better.
