Weekdays are "business as usual" for everyone in the adoption world, this includes Imagine (who will process our referral), our provincial government (who will be the first to receive our referral from Imagine and approve), and our adoption agency (who will be calling ME about our referral). Weekends mean that everything shuts down and all is at a stand still until the weekend ends.
Weekdays mean that every time my phone rings, I jump - and when the caller is "unknown", my heart stops for a moment. When I see a voice message on my phone, I panic. And my cell phone is always fully charged before I go out. Weekends mean when the phone rings, I don't really care and most often, I even let Chad answer the phone. And if I leave my cell phone at home when I am out - no big deal.
Weekdays I check the forum and my email regularly, to see if any new referrals have come through. Weekends, well, who am I kidding, I still check everything just as often - you never know, maybe there will be a late referral announcement. The only difference is that on the weekends, I don't have the 'work guilt' when checking.
Bottom line, whether it is a weekday or a weekend, morning, noon, or night, waiting SUCKS!!!
