It is very depressing to see how many other families are receiving their TA's and confirmation of appointments, and we are not. Already we have waited one month longer than many of these families - many are from the April referral group. We received our hard copy of our referral on March 9/09. If anyone can explain any of this to me, please do. We are not being given that ray of hope that other families are and I think that this is totally unfair. Here I sit, day after day, waiting and wondering if today might be the day that we get some good news. I've been off work for three weeks now, due to stress and the fact that we thought we would be leaving by now, or at least have travel dates. My sick days are numbered. I cannot return to work because of the fact that we don't know when we are leaving and another teacher has been hired for my two-month term, and that again, would add to my stress. I'm getting to the point where I don't really want to see anyone because of the on-going questions from others -"Do you know when you leave yet?" and "When are you going?" I just don't know what to do anymore... I can only clean the house so many times, all of Maya's clothes are washed, we are basically packed... We would leave tomorrow if we could.
Here is our alternate blog that we used while we were in China. You can also find it at the bottom of my list of blogs on this page. Blogger didn't work in China - it's actually blocked, as is youtube. There are many photos as well as daily entries that you may enjoy taking a look at and reading.
There are also different types of blogs that I have created and am playing around with listed at the bottom of this page. Please check them out, too!
