It's the last day of April, and still no referral! I can't believe it's going to be MAY when this finally happens. I was telling my friend Mary today that I am just ready to be done with this phase of waiting and move on to the next. Of course, the next phase will have its own challenges, but it will be shorter and just DIFFERENT.
Aaron and I contacted our social worker this week and we have a plan for how she is going to contact us with a referral. The plan is she is going to call Aaron first, and then he is going to call me and we're going to meet up to get all the details together. I was hoping she'd slip some kind of time frame in there, but, no such luck of course! Needless to say I jump each time the phone rings.
I also stopped by the library this week and picked up a few baby name books since we aren't set on any names yet. We are planning on keeping part of our baby's Ethiopian name, so it's hard to pick an American name to go with another unknown name. We can keep the library books for a month AND renew them, so we'd better have a referral by then! We're taking any suggestions you'd like to give, especially for girl names. :)
In other news...Macdaddy Music had a record number of sales for the month of April! So that's exciting.
Last weekend Aaron's mom, sister, and our niece Peyton came up to do some bridesmaid dress shopping for Jesse and Jodi's wedding. It was fun to have some time with the girls; if you want to see any pictures of the dresses we picked (I know, you are all DYING to) you can check it out here on Aimee's blog. Jodi's having all the bridesmaids wear different dresses in the same color (a navy blue - it's really pretty) and we had a fun time trying on different styles.
We went to a murder mystery dinner theater thing last Saturday with Aaron's brothers, my sister, and, of course Jodi. We had a great time, here are a couple pictures.
Hopefully the next time I post it'll be referral news, but, as I've been saying, I won't hold my breath.
