Sometimes it really feels overwhelming. And sometimes I'm at peace with it.
So....I couldn't sleep the other night and I went all 1981 and wrote this poem. Suffer through it to see how waiting feels to me, or just scroll to the bottom for the latest update!
This Wait.Hovers like fog on a wet morning.It wilts me.Drinks from my confidence.Nibbles on my dreams.Mocks my mother's heart.
I pretend it's not there.But it will not be ignored.It rings in my ears.Jabs at my chest.A chill I cannot dissipate.
This Wait.Cannot be rushed.Cannot be cajoled.It's a test, tailor-made for me.But patience has never been my friend.
Together we sit,like old maids on a porch swing.Argue and fuss.I shake my fist at her.When.
She leans over and whispers in my ear."It's true, I am sometimes difficult.But I am also delicious.Delectable.Divine."
A new view.For without The Wait,there would be no you.
All this is part of our story.And for you my love,I will gladly wait.

OK. You made it! And evidently we are making it too. Yesterday our I600 was approved! So, (keeping fingers crossed here) we could be traveling in about two weeks! Wahoo!
Holy crap. So much to get done!
