YIKES!

Tomorrow (technically today, actually) I have my first home study. Someone from Health and Welfare is coming over to my house to interview my family and me and to inspect my house. I was very motivated a few weeks ago to get things done and be prepared but as time went on and I was overlooked I sort of lost my interest to keep up on my house keeping. Anyone who really knows me, knows that I am not the tidiest person especially when it comes to laundry. I have been cleaning all day but keep finding any excuse to stop for several hours at a time. Finally after I finished Biggest Loser, I decided to start up with the cleaning. It is coming along but Teddy's room smells like pee. I can't really clean it because he is sleeping right now, and I can't open a window because he will then freeze to death. It is pretty boring and I don't want to clean anymore but I guess I will get back to it. Hopefully I pass and don't give them anymore excuses to not license me.

We check the blogs of people who are trying to get foster kids. After reading this horrendous post about your messy house we will be deducting 2 points from your total score. So There!

I'm sure you will do fine. We had our homestudy done last year, and I freaked out with the cleaning, but she didn't have a white glove and an odor detector, like I thought was going to happen. Our homestudy is going up in a few weeks, and she has to come again to check the house, so I will be there again in a few weeks with the crazy cleaning.

I don't know, you have such bad luck, I kind of think she will come in with an odor detector. I'm going to hope she got my cold, and just can't smell anything. Good luck!

I can't do anything until I have finished biggest loser. I can't believe it was two boys below the yellow line! My house has suffered dearly.

Sara-I checked your blog no less than four times yesterday. I really really really was looking forward to an update from you, but you let me down. The only person with a new post was Jenny. She is my favorite now. Prove me wrong Sara, prove me wrong.
