If you see any marbles rolling around

they belong to the July Dragonflies...we've officially lost ours!
This wait has really gotten to us.
First of all, last week someone in our group shared a "sign" they had that they were being matched. They've collected turtles for 20 years because it was their sorority mascot. They've had turtle sightings on very significant days in their life (i.e. weddings, etc.) and recently a turtle appeared on their back porch, so the consensus was that they were being matched with their baby. They also noted that the turtle said "xie, xie" after they gave it some lettuce. Following that another group member was shopping for baby sleepers and came across one that had a turtle with a ladybug riding on it's back. Then it all made sense why it was taking the CCAA so long.
The Rumor Queen did a post today about the cut off for this month being July 13 and got 91 comments. Things started out as normal but then someone told the RQ to check her email because she sent a message that "the CCAA said they.... " and left people hanging. That's how it started.

-are making us all dinner
-are moving again
-lost a bunch of dossiers
-sent out referrals without telling anyone
-have decided to send out a batch of 6 months worth of babies
-found lots of paper-ready babies under a cabbage leaf
-got a delivery of paper-ready babies from the stork
-have decided to convert their offices into an ice cream parlor
-are turning away people who have had a cold in the past year
-have decided to implement a lottery system in issuing referrals
-will begin assigning referrals in whatever random order they feel like
-will begin posting every move they make on their website
-will install "CCAA cams" in the new offices so we can see what the heck is going on
-are asking for volunteers to come help them with the back-log in the matching room
-have decided to wave the travel requirements and will be flying entire planes of babies to the U.S. to meet their parents.

Yep, we've lost it!
