It's My Party & I'll Cry If I Want To....

or I'll do cartwheels of joy!

It's my birthday today.
But I kinda got my present yesterday when my phone rang at 9:30am.

Which is a good thing because so far today.....
I have awoken at 1:37am with a beeping security alarm that apparently wanted new batteries....
of which I  had none...
and also no way of disconnecting it....
at least in my sleepy stupor I had no way.....
normal awake people probably would have found a way.

Then after falling back to sleep round a bout near an hour later I woke up at 6:40am to feed
one happy
and one grumpy
small Chinese man breakfast.
Then I took them to summer school,
stopped at the chow hall to procure more food rations for the rest of the testosterone I live with
decided to splurge the extra 75cents for a cuppa {hot} coffee to feed my caffeine addiction
walked to the car
and whilst balancing said food rations
managed to spill said coffee all over my....brea......errrrr.....front side.
One word.
Ouch.

But thankfully I am still  basking in my phone call gift of yesterday.
It was our agency.
Our
off the hook
fantastic agency.

They had recieved an email the night before in regards to our sweet boy,

"CCCWA has start The Most Rapid Process for Hu XX XX to issue LSC...."

Did you hear that?
"The Most Rapid Process"
And in case you were wondering
it was capitalized like that on their end.
I heart capitalized letters.
IT MAKES IT SOUND
EXCITING
AND
REAL
AND
IMPORTANT.

I asked her if "The Most Rapid Process" was normal lingo for "expedited" and she said she hadn't heard it phrased that way before.

I don't know much
but I think John better start gearing up for some airline food because after this LSC, the rest should go
very
very
quickly.

I'm off to apply some burn ointment to my.....well.....never mind.

  15. Happy Birthday to YOU! So happy for your happy news!...but could you wait up??? I'm trying to plan the trip of a life-time to China for YOUR man and MY man and you're getting ahead of me!!! We were actually logged in a week or two ahead of you, but my dossier had to be translated! I suppose yours has already been there, done that... hasn't it? :-) OK... I'll continue to be happy for you anyway!

  16. I love the adoption blog world. So, yesterday I shared your birthday and grew another year older. I did not get the exciting phone call you did on the 26th, but did mail our I797 to the SOS and am hoping to be logged in soon. We have two babies waiting in China! I love your blog, can't wait to follow your journey. WWW.lifeatbiggerdirt.blogspot.com
