You read that right.
I actually hung up on our adoption agency today.
I don't know about you but I am a creature of glorious planning.
Let's peak into Sonia's head for a moment shall we?
Ok here goes.
In my head our phone call about these LSC's would come at around 8:30am.
Just as I was wrapping up my quiet time with the Lord, fully engrossed in the Word, a fresh cup of coffee steaming in the cool crispness of the morning in the backyard.
And the phone would ring.
And I would answer the phone at which point flowers would bloom, birds would sing, the heavens would open up and a sunbeam would shine directly down upon me.
It's a big fall from waaaayyy up there in high expectation land.
I'm not kidding.
My birds chirping, sunshine moment occurred today instead at exactly 4:38 in the middle of the Stuff-Mart where I was letting Justin pick out a new book as a reward for sleeping through the night for the first time in 3 months.
And that would have been all well and good....
....if I didn't hang up on her.
As I think I mentioned before I gave up my iPhone a few months ago to save $$ for our adoption.
And if we could just stop and explore that for a moment. Here are my thoughts:
Going from no iPhone TO an iPhone.
Going from an iPhone TO NO iPhone...
the exact opposite of glorious.
I now have a cheap, rebuilt,
It's great fun.
-and now the rest of the story-
So there I was, the middle of Stuff-Mart
and the phone rings.
Thinking it was a teenager of mine requesting that I pick up even more edible provision I was discussing the merits of choosing between a Magic Tree House or a Weird School Book with Justin all the while searching for my
When...finally....I find it...
and I pulled it out just in time to see our agency's name in the caller ID...
...at which point
I hung up.
I accidentally hung up on my Jessa.
And then as further proof of this phone's awesomeness, I couldn't get it to dial the number back.
Way not cool.
Or as my kids would say...
Sooooo, that brings us to this
the update that sweet Jessa was trying to give me before I couldn't apparently be bothered to answer the phone correctly:
Our LSC's were mailed from the CCdoubleA on
At which point a typhoon or something decided to strike China....
I think I shall pen a book entitled "How not to lose your mind in the middle of a Chinese adoption where ridiculous things happen to you time and time again."
So our coveted forms are SOMEWHERE between here and the continent of Asia.
Well, Jessa's workin on that.
Perhaps next time she calls I will give her the courtesy of...I dunno...maybe answering the phone?
That's what I know.
And if anyone sees my iPhone please tell it that I am so sorry that I disconnected it and that I miss it terribly.
