(The awesome 3)
Mostly it's because I can't get over the feeling of it not being real. I'm hoping that seeing her picture will finally make it real for me. There's so much unknown, especially the timing. Do you plan a vacation because you won't travel until next year? Or do you wait and hope for at least one of the two trips to happen before the end of the year.
One thing I have done is put together some spreadsheets (my family, we are very spreadsheet driven, thank you Susan and Erik) that compile all of the tips and information that I've learned through blogs and internet boards. What to take with you when you travel, where to stay when you go, how to deal with attachment issues when you get home, etc. Hopefully it will be a good resource when I actually get to do something.
Next month is the 5th annual EKC Summer Mehaber, a festival at the State Fairgrounds. I haven't registered but I think I will make a point to be there. I'm hoping I won't feel out of place without my child but I'm eager to see what it's all about. The round table discussions sound especially interesting. I bet next year they will be even more so!
What did you do to prepare or pass the time before your referral?
