I know we haven't been doing this for a while but hey what better way to keep your spirits high than counting down the days. Who has one we'll help you do it.

Well, I dont have an exact countdown, but I should start something like it. Since Mark is coming in June. He says, by june 15th. So, I suppose we can start one with us. I will even give it a few more days, til the 18th. So, 40 day countdown starting today for me. How about that? Give me something to look forward to daily I suppose. If anything changes, I will change the number. lol So, ....40 days and counting for me and mark!! WOO HOO!

I guess we can all write our imp coming up dates and select the closest one that needs the counting down..Is that ok?

Mine is june 22(sun)...I will be meeting my family after 2 years.Right now I'm shaping up for that(long way to go)and basically strengthening myself to be strong for them.

Does it count?:)

I think I will keep my countdown to months... the number of days I fear would be quite depressing. So, now I have to get my calander out... I will see my love by the end of the second week of December. So right at 7 months. :) thats not nearly so daunting as it was in October when we began speaking of it. Its amazing in hindsight how quickly time passes.

Hi,

Thanx...so I'm on the calander too and I'm going to remind you'll about your dates too.I also will be in touch wherevr I can..I would love to come onto the board and give my 'invaluable advice'...j/king..I'd just like to come and read and tell and know how everyone is doing....None of you'll know how much you'll are helping me through everything in my life...I think you'll DO have an idea and that is why you'll are so patient and forthcoming....Even if its not directly to me...when I read advice given to another,,,or praise or warnings..I just feel so blessed I found this board....I will always be a part of this family:).....

Remind me how patience is a virtue please lol...We finally have a countdown of sorts, no exact date yet but it'll be in July! It's been a tough few months for Steve and I. We originally hoped for March, but that really was more of a hope than anything else, and then we were trying for May/June. I hate not having definate plans, I get edgy and I feel like I'm in limbo, but now that we have a more realistic time frame I feel calm and settled and am just soooo looking forward to it :) Yay!!lol
