Desperate?

Does it make me sound desperate that I emailed my caseworker with alternate back-up phone numbers for when I am going to be out of town later this month?

I know I am not yet in "The Window," but it is coming up soon, and I am hoping that Gladney will have a round of referrals this week or next, so I just wanted to make sure that they could contact me, considering my place on the FBI list.

Okay, yes, it does make me sound a little desperate.

Desperate is okay.

Not "desperate"....I prefer words and phrases like "brimming with anticipation", or "responsible for letting them know how to contact you"...aka "desperate". :)

Ha! I definitely did the same thing with our social worker! I even left specific instructions for what to say if she called me at work and they couldn't find me!

Now, in this case, is desperate a bad thing? Nope! I am praying for you!!!!!

I'm with Jennifer and Jody. We're a lot further down the waitlist and I already find myself keeping my cell phone within reaching distance at all time (not normal for me!).

And yes, can we please get some referrals this week?? After further analysis of your FBI, I have noticed that most referrals come mid-month or later, but I am ready now (does that make me sound desperate? crazy?) ;)

I'd be doing the same thing if I were farther up on the list. I like the 'responsible' angle better. I hope the mid-month trend is not really a trend but a blip. Here's hoping that the referrals start coming in this week.
