Another month to wait
We got official word from Great Wall yesterdeay that the cut off date in China was May 30! They only filled 5 days worth of referrals! At this pace, we will be lucky to get a referral in July! I surely hope we don't have to wait that long. I don't know how I am going to get through this next month. If the CCAA continues to only fill days worth of referrals, then we should plan on a June referral and hopefully travel in July. I do like how referrals have been coming at the end/beginning of the months. The next batch will most likely come the last few days of April. Amazingly, I am OK with the news. I'm a little shocked, but I am OK with it. I think there is still so much I want to do before we go. I definitely need to lose some weight. The room isn't finished and I don't have everything I need. That brings me to another topic and that is the shower. Do I go ahead and have the shower or wait until we get a referral? So many unknowns. I'm just shocked that I am not going crazy. Oh well. What can we do? Todd isn't handling the news very well. He feels like something is drastically wrong. I think I may have created that monster because someone on the June board was speculating that that might be the reason for the slow down in referrals. I mentioned this to Todd and has this idea stuck in his head. So, we're off to wait another month. The CCAA will need to fill 10 days worth of referrals for us to be in the next batch. They have May 31 through June 9. I don't even want to speculate!
