On the adoption front, yesterday Hubby had his physical and will go in on Monday for his labs. I went in today and lucky me (thank you IF) I have had all of my labs done over the last two years to cover all the tests. I don't need any pokes at all and I find it just a smidgen funny. These forms need to be notarized and my papers are in the medical office until I go next week to have them notarized by my FIL (who is notarizing our documents to help us save money). Although this saving has been a thorn in my side the last few weeks.
Originally today was supposed to be a deep cleaning day. Our 4th and final homestudy (!!) is now going to be on the 21st instead of the 14th due to paperwork needing to be notarized. Hopefully, my FIL will follow through and we will have it all done by mid week. So, we get an extra week to finish a few things (like our remodeled, almost finished upstairs bathroom) since beginning Sunday, Hubby should be done with all the physical store stuff!! Double hooray!!! I am really happy to be moving along with our adoption. It is nice to have something to look forward to and feel excited about again. Today I sent in paperwork to the placing agency we will most likely be using. I have a phone appointment tomorrow with our homestudy agency to firm up our decision, although it is most likely already made!
We are also having our first (hopefully annual!) Friendsgiving on Saturday. I don't know about you, but there is something special about cooking holiday foods and I always want to share with friends. However, for obvious reasons, everyone is always busy those days! So I thought this year I would invite my dearest friends over to my home and we would have our own Thanksgiving.....Friendsgiving it is! I have a lot to be thankful for and their friendship has been so meaningful these last few years, especially the last few months. I truly don't know where I would be if these ladies weren't around to pick me up off the floor.
In the morning, I am watching my nieces until early afternoon since their daycare/preschool is closed. Lucky me! I got a three minute hug/snuggle from my youngest one on Wednesday night. I haven't spent as much time with them recently, I have been so busy with school. Time to change that back! I simply adore these girls, they are my loves.
