All over the place...

Today marks 20 years since Josh and I went out on our first date.

We were so young.

I remember how we used to talk all those years ago (when things started to turn serious), about our future and how we would have a big family. How we would have anywhere between three and five children.

Here we are still waiting for our first.

I'm just glad that the CCAA finally made it into February. When I checked China Adoption Forecast the other day, it actually knocked a month off our wait with this recent batch. So our projected referral might get here in October 2011. Yay!

Anyways, he's off on yet ANOTHER trip out east on business and won't be back for a little bit. He missed our anniversary last month and he's going to miss my birthday next week.

Sucks to be me. ;)

Happy 20 years! Ours is coming up in January. We too had those talks about how many kids we would have.

Ummm....I can't tell if you are kidding about 2011 or not, but just seeing that number makes me feel sick to my stomach. 2011. Seriously? Sucks.

Happy Birthday! Sorry you have to spend it without your hubby :(

I was hoping the travel had eased. I often find myself looking back at my expectations with a feeling that borders on embarrassment at how naively optimistic I was. Oh well, live for hope, right?

Congrats on 20 years!!! And happy early birthday.

My Husband is out of town right now, too. Wanna come over and commiserate? We can cheer and cry at the same time about the pace of referrals.

20 years!! WOW!! Congrats!

The speed of referrals is HORRIBLE...I keep hoping for a speed up - I have been hoping for a couple of years now.

Does Hubby buy you presents when he is away?

Happy anniversary! I can understand where you're coming from. We were bumped up to December 2012.

Wow, you two young'uns have been together since your were embryos!

Happy Anniversary! Our stories are so similar... it's our 19th anniversary this month and we're looking at 2012 for a referral. It's hard to even process 3 or 4 more years of waiting, isn't it? Good thing we have these occasional happy milestones to celebrate along the way!

He is weaseling out of two gifts... that's what! That or there's a mistress wearing your new tennis bracelet ;)

You look good at 20 babe
Kids will age you another twenty faster than you know it. Start watching infomercials on how to stay young... Or dip into your spam folder to see what new 'products for enhancement' are out. LOL

Or do as I do and find yourself a good P.S. (plastic surgeon!!) Girl, you look awesome. You'll be a better mom in your 30's than you would've been in your 40's anyway....

Happy Birthday, my dear! Hope it's a great one.

Dolores and Shawn said...
