good day

Huge step forward today! R took a half day off work and got home at noon. He fixed a sandwich and grabbed a banana to eat in the car, and we jumped in the car. We drove an hour and a half to our social worker’s office. We felt rushed, because we knew she was only going to be in her office until 3:00 this afternoon. We got there at 1:45, so we had plenty of time to spare. Our social worker was very nice to us today. We gave her my medical letter and the corrected draft of the home study. She went through our file and double checked her list, and everything was there! Our part of the home study is over! She said that she would send our home study to our agency on Monday morning! She told us that we were an easy family to deal with, and that our home study had gone very smoothly. That was good to hear. She said some of her clients are very disorganized. She said one of her clients even lost their dossier. Who does that?? I can’t even imagine! Anyway, soon we will have the final copies of the home study and then we can get our dossier apostilled. We are excited to be at this point in the process!

After we left the social worker’s office, we went to Burlington Coat Factory. We found some very warm gloves with Thinsulate insulation for $6.99! We each got a pair. I had seen them online for $25, so another super score! I tried on some faux fur winter hats, but nothing I liked. We both tried on coats too. It gave us a good idea of sizes and lengths, but the prices weren’t a bargain, so we’ll just order those, probably from Land’s End. After reading other blogs, I’m worried about the coat not being warm enough!

On the way home, we stopped by the salon and visited my sister A. for a minute. After going to the grocery store, we went to Starbucks and then listened to Christmas music all the way home. The sunset was absolutely amazing. A beautiful end to a nice afternoon.
