This Week's Updates

Sorry, I've been ghost this week, but I've had technology problems.  My computer crashed, so I had to buy a new one.  I got a lovely little MacBook that I am in love with!  I think I may love this more than or as much as my TIVO!  For all of you Mac fanatics out there, now, I understand!  Now, I understand! Dang, I love this thing, albeit I still haven't figured out how to use all of the functionality (the reason why you have no pictures showing my extreme excitement)!  If you need a computer get on board.  It takes a little getting used to, after 20 years of using a PC, but the functionality is way cool!  

Now, here is the biggie.  I got an email from my social worker today.  I am officially home study APPROVED!  That's right folks, this girl is officially on her way.  He mailed off my paperwork to USCIS today.  He said it should be about two months before I receive approval from them to adopt.  Can you believe it?  Neither can I!  Now on to the next set of "dramady."

And finally, work is picking up and I'm very busy.  The market (the recession, I believe) still stinks but I'm busting my rear so Baby I can come home!  November cannot come fast enough in DC.  I look forward to the city changing over and things starting anew!  Plus, spring is in the air so what a perfect time for me to start busting my hump right?  :-)  Seeing all of the new baby pictures from everyone that has gone to pick up their little one, as well as all of the referrals that seem to be coming daily has inspired me.  I'm moving, I'm moving...okay, I'm thinking faster!  LOL

Congrats on the homestudy and the Mac! I switched to Mac in September after another dreaded crash. And although I have to use my PC laptop for some work related issues. I LOVE THE MAC. I am definitely converted.

As far as the homestudy. Why do you think it took so long. I see you started it in July? I started my homestudy in Feb and my social worker is doing the final review tomorrow and she's just waiting on the medical (Which I haven't done yet). Everything else is cleared. Is the final type up very time consuming or am I missing something? Thanks Robbin

Ms. Hopkins. Thanks for the Congrats! No, any "Normal" person would have finshed their home study in a few months. I'm not so normal! I procrastinated, then procrastinated some more. But...it is done now...so I only have my dossier to procrastinate through! LOL
