Apparently not included this month, AGAIN

So just heard rumors that matches have begun arriving, and unfortunately we are not included AGAIN this month...I don't mean to sound like I'm not happy for those who have received their referrals as I am soooo happy for them, but I am so disappointed after once again getting on this roller coaster ride and getting my hopes up so high again this month. We don't know what the cutoff date is yet, so don't know how many days they did this month, but the bumpy roller coaster ride continues another month (or two, or three)....hopefully next month (or maybe we will get a surprise call this month, a girl can hope right???)

Wacky Wednesday...what carnival ride are you?

See, even on the Wacky Wednesday quizzes, I am a roller coaster, what does that show you???? Come on rumors!!

You Are a Roller Coaster

You live for excitement, adventure, and the most intense of thrills.

Nothing is better than feeling you're truly alive, and you're willing to take risks to feel this way.

In relationships, people often feel a bit nervous about what they're getting into...

But generally, everyone enjoys the wild ride you take them on. Unless they stay with you too long - then they're apt to feel a bit nauseous!

Your life has more low points and high points than most people's lives.

But that's okay - you love them. You figure that a smooth ride is boring!

Besides, you know that super high highs only come from knowing super low lows.

You cherish every emotion you feel and feel it fully. Why deny what life is truly about?

At your best, you are loving life and sharing your wild times with everyone you know.

You are able to open your friends up to a whole new world of experiences.

At your worst, you feel extremely disoriented and even a bit dizzy.

There's only so much intensity a human (even you!) can take.

Rumors starting to float around, and National Junk Food Day

Well, the rumors that the CCAA are starting to make the matches are starting to float around the internet (okay on Rumor Queen's website, and thus the adoption community is starting to talk about it) guess who's back on the emotional roller coaster, putting her heart on the line to hopefully not be crushed that once again not only are we not included in this batch, but that the CCAA didn't do but a few days...that's right ME. I just know in my heart though that we may possibly be included in this batch, the Rumor Queen numbers seem to make sense that we will in this batch and finally see her face and learn who she is, but I'm secretly scared this won't be the case again, and thus our waiting to see her/meet her will keep increasing. Come on CCAA, please don't make me wait too much longer, I (along with my family and friends) want to finally meet Chynna, please help us make that a reality.

On another note, I just learned that today is National Junk Food Day. What is this day you may ask. Well, here's what I learned:

National Junk Food Day

When is it? Every July 21st

What is it?

Well, to some people, every day is Junk Food Day. But for others, National Junk Food Day is an opportunity to guiltlessly eat your favorite junk food. Dietitians will tell you that junk food is any food that contains little nutritional value. It also includes foods that are high in salts, fats, and sugars. In other words, junk food is all that tasty stuff that the dietitians, and our Moms, consider to be bad for us.

On National Junk Food Day, you get to eat anything you want and in any amounts that you want. But after today, it's back to eating healthy, you know celery and carrot sticks, salads, and all that other healthy stuff.

Please Note: Junk food may be hazardous to your health. After all, mom knows what's best for you. Do eat it at your own risk. That risk includes Mom saying: "I told you so!"

So while in order to pass the time while we wait, let's eat the chips, dips, cookies, cakes, and all that other yummy Junk Food!!!

Wacky Wednesday, what does your fancy drink say about you?

While we wait to see there are any rumors of matching, let's see what the drinks we are drinking say about us....enjoy your hump Wednesday.

You Are Carefree

You can talk your way into - and out of - any situation you desire. You know how to get yourself out of trouble.

You are well traveled... or you desperately want to be. Your heart is filled with wanderlust.

You need to be as free as the wind. No matter what, you aren't willing to give up your independence.

You don't worry too much about responsibilities... things have a way of working themselves out.

No Rumors Yet

I'm starting to get excited, yes I'm getting on the roller coaster once again in hopes that in the next week or so we will finally see our Chynna. According to Rumor Queen, here is part of her post for today, let's hope she's right and next week we'll know something:

No Rumors
July 19th, 2011
I expect to see a report tomorrow that the CCAA is preparing to get started with the matching process. I’m hoping they are mailed sometime by the middle to end of next week.

But as of now – all is quiet.

Wacky Wednesday...what is your tropical fruit flavor

Your Tropical Fruit Flavor is Mango

Your heart is carefree, wild, and irresponsible. You let your heart lead you, even when it leads you astray.

You love freedom above all else. You think everyone could do with some liberation.

If someone plays hard to get with you, it makes you all the more interested. You love a challenge.

You love to talk for hours - whether it's sharing a story or teaching someone something.

Wacky Wednesday...what does your laugh say about you?

After the sad verdict that happened yesterday in the case of Casey Anthony (where I feel no justice was gotten for Caylee, an adorable little girl taken too soon in my opinion by her mother, even though the jury didn't feel that way), I feel like we need some sort of laughter in our lives again. So in order to help bring some of that laughter back, I thought this quiz would help us to evaluate what our laugh says about us. The funny thing is...this quiz is so right about me, it's amazing. How about what it says about you?

You Are a Complex Laugher

You have changeable moods. You are emotionally unpredictable... no one is sure how you'll react.

You sometimes end up laughing at the strangest things. You recognize life's irony.

You are so full of joy and enthusiasm for everything! You always notice the positive.

You are both alert and sensitive to the world around you. Nothing slips by you.
