Back in the Window!! (and Tagged!)

It is finally been 5 months since our dossier was shipped to Ethiopia!

We can realistically expect our referral within the next two months.

We are not carrying the phone around...yet.

On another note, I was "tagged" by two friends, K.P. and Shari, and now must share 10 things about myself.

Here are the rules: You have to tag 5 people and you can't tag the person that tagged you. You leave them a comment on their blog letting them know you are tagging them and why. Also, direct them to your blog for instructions. It is also asked that you notify the tagger when you post your list so that they can enjoy reading the responses.

Here are the 10 somewhat interesting facts about Susan:

  1. I loved driving a forklift when I worked in a factory.
  2. Both of my daughters were born in a bath tub -the same one in fact.
  3. My favorite color is cobalt blue -like blue glass.
  4. I was born on Good Friday.
  5. I married my first boyfriend 16 years ago. We met at work when we were still children!
  6. I nursed virtually non-stop for 9 1/2 years and hope to nurse our new little guy.
  7. I have a B.S. in Psychology but have only used it to get a job as a customer service rep in a bank.
  8. My favorite TV show is LOST!
  9. I like to name my pet fish after "Lord of the Rings" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" characters, but they keep dying. (The fish store guys told me to stop naming them when I brought Sam and Frodo back in a Ziploc bag!)
  10. When I was young, I went forward for an alter call for those who were willing to go where God wants them to. Now, I'm going to AFRICA!
Now, the lucky ducks who get tagged... Bethany, Abby, Rebecca K., Candy, Jen Mc.
(Although, two people tagged me, I'm just going to tag 5 and not 10 so that I can get something else done today! LOL!)

We "heart" Youngs Jersey Dairy! Chris would down their huge Chili Dog and I loved the potato wedges and of course the bull shake! (2 scoops of choc. 1 scoop of coffee ice cream!)

Yea 5 months! Cobalt blue is my husband's favorite too. :)

Jill Coen said...

I have a BS in Psychology too. :)

Team Dragovich said...

Yeah for 5 months! Lord of the Rings is my FAVORITE trilogy... I will watch it any time-- I think it is cute to name the fish after those characters... bad that they die, though!

I love LOST and nursing my kiddos too. I am new to AWAA Ethiopia and your blog. Are you considering relactating? I am currently nursing my 17 month old, although she is down to 2-4 times a day. I don't think we will make it another year to year and a half until we get our Ethiopian babe. Would love to chat with you about what you know concerning relactating and getting an older baby to the breast.

Lost is the only show we watch around here (via internet on Friday nights, so I have to delete EVERY post on the YG to avoid temptation of finding out what happens before I watch the episode). I'd love to hear what you are doign to prepare to nurse your newest arrival...I have high hopes for our little guy too!
ps. Regarding your crocs--wish I could even wear crocs with socks, but snow, sleet, freezing rain--even sock don't keep that mess out!

Jen said...

Okay, I played along!! I loved reading your interesting things... Nathan almost made his apperance in a bathtub, too! Congrats on being in the window!! :)

I completed my duties and listed 10 things about me. You can decide if they are interesting or not. It was fun and a needed distraction.

It's exciting that you are getting so close to getting your referral! Congrats on waiting so patiently through 5 months!

With Love,

Glad to hear you're in the window. Guess what!? We name our pets after LOR characters (and Narnia). We used to have a cat named Mr. Tumnus & we have a dog named Theoden (Theo). :) Good stuff!

Hope you receive your referral sooner than later. Oh, my Bachelor's is in Psych too! :) So much in common (I also hope to have a water birth if I have another pregnancy).
