My agency said they did not receive anything today.
I'm tired of telling people 'tomorrow', and more importantly, I'm tired of telling my kids 'today'. Twice now, I have woken them up with 'Guess what today is?'... The first day the excitement was abundant. Today.. it was like 'Yay.'. Obviously, I will not need to stop holding my breath.
I don't know what happened... or why the information did not come in. The medicals were supposed to be picked up yesterday.
I'm a bit lost for words, as I was certain today was the day. After the news, I went and sat in the toy room and sorted beads from lego and seashells... because I just didn't know what else to do. I have so MUCH to do. Flights have to be paid for, Visa applications have to be sent off. Homeschooling reports and agendas need to be done. But I feel like this referral is holding me back. I keep saying to myself - I will finalize all this when the referral comes in. I'm playing it safe I guess. So I will continue to pack up the house, seek renters and pet sitters etc...
The amount that has to be done is quite overwhelming actually... and I'm not quite sure how it will get done. We seemed to be constantly pulled in a million directions and it's hard to focus on getting any one thing done. I have cancelled soccer for the kids, and all any other formal lessons and activities, to give us more time on the home front.
Our date to Kenya will likely have to be pushed back another week now... there really just isn't enough time between referral and departure any more.
Sorry for the disappointing news folks, tomorrow is another day. (Hopefully!)
