Homestudy #2 tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the first of our two individual homestudies.  Mrs. S will just be talking with me. I have to say I am nervous about what she is going to ask me (and then ask hubby on Monday and compare notes!!).  But as my dear friends point out, I have nothing to hide and there is no reason she should deny us approval. I have to agree but I still worry.  My goal was to finish our pre-application for the other placement agency by tomorrow, er today, and send it off, but as hubby has not had time to work on his part (answering a set of questions, in essay format) it will probably have to wait til Friday.  Hubby has worked non-stop since he came home last week. He actually gets Friday off for our anniversary which means I am really hoping I don't have to go in for jury duty (please excuse me on Thursday.....please, please, please!!). If nothing else he can answer those questions!

I didn't mention this but I went to my "friend's" baby shower on Saturday afternoon. She's the lady I teach with, same team and we all were great friends.  To say it was awkwardly uncomfortable is an understatement.  I didn't know most people there and actually hid in the bathroom for a few minutes so I wouldn't break down and cry.  You know when you want to give someone a hug and they really don't seem that interested and then it doesn't happen anyway...well, I don't think I have ever felt that way before and it made me really sad. Sad to know that I probably have lost her as a friend.  Worse was sitting with another friend who I really was getting negative vibes from as I am sure she has heard of all the "nastily mean" things I have done. sigh. Her boyfriend gave me a hug as I escaped left and told me "thanks for coming, it means a lot"...nice gesture but it makes me wonder if it was really heartfelt.

ahem....moving on......Lupron began Saturday night.  So far so good, although I think it's making me tired.  Either that I'm staying up too late... what? It's only 2 am....hehehe.   Next week is a big week....hysteroscopy on Wednesday and more labs and a u/s. 

Today I installed the Ro.setta Stone (RS) Korean edition on my computer.  I am actually really excited to learn Korean since I don't know sad.  Oh's gonna be complicated.  Have any of you had any luck with RS??  I'm not sure if I need to purchase a book as well....I think I need to see it also.  But since I have only played a bit, I'll give it some time. Right now my tongue is confused!!  I also volunteer with my local humane society in their Animal Assisted Therapy program.  Today was the monthly read to a dog day at the library.  Always fun!

Here we are...can you tell Ernie was very distracted by the new girl? hehe Oh and if I had known we were going to take a picture I might not have worn my green clogs. =0) 

Happy Wednesday everyone!


  1. Good luck on the home study: part ii. Your friends are right, you guys have nothing to hide. Even still I think it's completely natural to feel a bit nervous - this is a BIG, exciting step for you guys. I had good luck with RS for like 3 days until I lost interest, which is all on me. Good luck!

  2. Good luck on the home study! I hope everything goes well and that you don't have jury duty this week and that you get to spend sometime with the hubs.

    Korean isn't too hard, so I know you'll pick up on it right away!

  3. Best of luck on your interview! I am sure you will do great. I have always wanted to try RS. Can't wait to hear how it goes for you:)

  4. Good luck with the home study! Can't wait to hear since we might be going through it as well very soon!

  5. Good luck with the home study!! I hope all goes smoothly for you!

  6. Good luck with your home study and with starting Lupron! Wow, you've got a lot going on...
    The baby shower sounds so hard...I'm sorry you had to go through that. I'm anti-baby shower at the moment...but sometimes it's hard to avoid, I know...

  7. Thanks for all your sweet comments!! @Sooz...when I get good -um? hah!--maybe we can get together and you can help me practice! ;0)
