Now what?

We have at least 3 weeks before we can even email the Embassy about our pre-approval. What am I supposed to do in the meantime?? With the infertility shit, there was always something to do. A doctor's appointment, bloodwork, cootercam, temping, peeing on sticks, something! It's hurry up and wait with nothing to do. That's ok - tonight we're going to stop at BJ's wholesale, get some disposable cameras, wash the clothes we bought him and box it up to send to Guatemala. Tomorrow we have Shabbat dinner at a synagogue we are considering joining. It's funny - at our reunion we were talking with an old friend and it turns out he belongs to the synagogue (and is very happy with it). I've been missing out on my Jewishness from a community perspective. I hope this place will fit both of our needs.

  1. I know how hard waits can be, can't imagine how you must feel! Hope the 3 weeks goes by speedily! And also hoping the synagogue is to your liking. I have been thinking a lot the past few months about trying church again. Religion so easily leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. Hoping this one fits the bill for you!

    (And *THANKS* for the super sweet comments. I know I sound like such a spaz, but what a week! Anyway, you made me laugh just when I needed it & I 'preciate it!)

  2. Three weeks is far too long to wait!

    I enjoy my church life a great deal..I hope it is good for you.

  3. It certainly is hard when you have nothing left to do. We spent a lot of time with family and friends (something I definitely miss now).

    Have fun at your Shabbat.
