In the Magic Zone

Well, today we entered the magic zone of referral land. We are now in the 8-15 month range for a referral. As I have said before we are thinking more on the 15 month side of things, and that is why I liked this photo - the big arrow reminds me that we are still going up, that away, keep on truckin', move it along, no stopping, keep your eye on the prize, get my drift.

It seems unreal to me that it has been 8 months already. When I am standing here looking at the number 8 and the next months to come it feels as though it will take 8 years to happen. But when I look back over the last 8 months, it feels more like 8 minutes has gone by.

I feel like Rocky Balboa trying to get to the top of the steps but know it is going to take patience and perseverance. I seriously can't wait to do my "Rocky Dance" when we get to the top!!!!!

In the zone, girl! I do hope some magic starts and you don't have to stay in the zone that long!


Ramona said...

Welcome into the zone or the window or whatever this crazy part of the wait it called!! In any case, let's hope it's short and that those referrals come!
PS Cool bike on your last post!! I'm trying to decide if I should go for one that style one day, but am a bit concerned that my last ride could have been a bit worse if I were just cruising around on mountain bike trails- we were in "the hills" and saw a cougar...(it's on my blog)

Ramona said...

I forgot to add on my last post that I'm in southern Manitoba- not your normal cougar country!!!

haze said...

Yup, welcome to the zone. Keep up the positive and pragmatic attitude. I'm hoping I can maintain the same over the next few months.

Oh, and I'll do my "Office" dance if you do your Rocky dance.

There's a zone? I didn't know there was a zone! How come nobody told me there was a zone?

Well, here's hoping your time in the zone is short and sweet!

Oh, I can't wait to get into the zone too! I hope that you are not in the zone for too long.

Haze - you have a deal - I will definitely post my "Rocky Dance" when we get a referral so you have to post your "Office" dance...hee!

Sharla said...

Great to be in the zone and I for one would like to see a video of you doing the Rocky Dance post-referral!!!

Ricki said...

Ooooh, the zone. I'm so so so so so hoping you will hear something closer to the '8' than the '15'. I will give you a call soon so we can plan a 'date' for August!
