Today, I said good bye to an old friend, my bulky, heavy, homestudy binder.
No longer, will I have to see you, homestudy, sitting on my desk or countertop, listening to you plead with me to finish you and send you on your merry way. Today, I delivered you to your home with the social worker.
I feels odd to not have this nagging feeling "you should really be finishing up that homestudy paperwork" today, for the first time in almost 3 months! I am so happy to have it out of my house! It feels like our first official landmark in this journey.
Next up: the home visits (which means, I need to get my house clean and babyproofed...even though I already raised one baby in this house and never did it)! Looks like we'll get our homevisits done in January at this point...I am feeling a little lighter today! Yipee!
And, One more plug for TOMS shoes, and I'm done. I just think it's so cool that this company matches shoes, one for one. You buy a pair, a pair goes to Ethiopia to a child in need. How great is that?!
