Whoever made up the line, "No news is good news" was a liar. No news when you have been waiting over 7 weeks for a court date is BAD news. I just sent poor little Mary an email, I have pasted it here for your viewing pleasure.
"Hi Mary,To be honest my only reason for bugging you today is for my own sanity. We are just past 7 weeks of waiting for a court date and I am about to poke my eyeballs out. Is there any reason for the crazy wait?? Gone are the good old days of 3 weeks! Every week I tell Eric that SURELY it has to be this week...but alas. :) OK. In case we were forgotten...we are still here! Sorry to bother you with a whiny email...I think I just need to feel like I am doing something to bring our sweet Kidus home!"
And so, that is how I feel in a nutshell. I want to poke my eyeballs out. Actually, the reason I haven't posted in years (or a week) is because (I have nothing to write) but also because I keep thinking that I should hold out for the glorious court date post....but I have gotten one too many threatening emails, stating that I better post or else. :) And apparently, Ethiopia has decided that I will NEVER get a court date so... :)
Alright, if this is going to be a "cry me a river" type post, then I mind as well keep going...
Let it be known, that I have come to the sad realization that we will not be able to make it to the sure-to-be-glorious blog union. Sniff sniff. The finances are just not going to allow for Malak and I to make the trek to California and it breaks my little heart! I am pretty sure every single blog friend that I love and have ever wanted to meet, is going to be there (with the exception of sweet sweet Becca) so I am cryin' myself a river. I would like to receive a promise from each and every one of you, that you will NOT have fun without me. Please, just sit on the boring old beach and sip some nasty wine and eat some stinky cheese and cry. That would be great. Thanks.
(Please note that I am just a little sarcastic and almost everything I say is not to be taken literally....or else I will seem like a big jerk)
