Happy Blogoversary to Me!





Today marks 5 years that I have been blogging on this here blog.

Five. Years.
Dude.

That's a long time. Especially for me, who never sticks to anything.


When I started this blog we were still trying to get pregnant. Oh what a wonderful time that was in our lives.


Not.


You couldn't pay me to back to then.


You all know how that turned out, and soon we changed tactics and started on our adoption journey.


It took us a whole year to finish our paperchase, due to the abnormalities in my blood test results, culminating in the diagnosis of my degenerative kidney disease. That was a scary and stressful time.


I try not to think about how much time that lost year cost us in our wait time now.


According to our agency's original letter, we should have been home a little over a year now.


Bwahahahahahaha! That's funny. The way things are looking now we still have another(at least!) 2 years to wait.


Oh well. It is what it is. We'll wait as long as we have to.


Even if it kills us. Which it just might.


Just kidding!


Anyhoo, I will be forever grateful for the support I have received through the blogging community and the awesome people I have met.


It has been quite a ride and I'm not ready to get off quite yet.


5 years.


Here's to another five, eventually with pictures and stories of my kid!


Thanks to everyone who follows along, both new and old.


*******I had every intention of doing a give-away on my blogoversary but it kind of snuck up on me and I am going to be really busy this weekend so it will have to wait until Monday.**********


Happy Fourth!!

WOW, five years is quite a milestone. I have only been blogging (consistently) for a year and I am burning out. Promised P I would keep going until July 21 (one year home from China), but probably need a break after that. SS had a great time at the fireworks last night, and I'm too lazy to download the pics and post. Instead, I'm reading blogs. :)
