Well, Wednesday, February 11th 2008 has been designated (by me) as the official “JUMPING THROUGH HOOPS DAY!”
Sometime between 8a.m. and 5p.m. one of the State Fire Marshalls will visit our humble abode. Heck even the cable company narrows it down to a four hour window. But a-lass the cable company is a private company and not a government agency.
I think I’m supposed to buy new smoke detectors. The high dollar ones we bought a while back doesn’t have the manfactured date on them. I think we are supposed to be able to prove that the smoke detectors are less than five years old. Maybe I should just burn some bread in the toaster oven to show her the dang thing works! haha
Then some time between 8a.m. and noon the Department of Health and Environmental Control will be coming by to make sure that it was not just some fluke that our “new kids” miraculously survived over the last thirty-three months we’ve had them. We will need to demonstrate that our home is (in fact) a safe home.
One of the questions on the questionair we had to fill out was something like:
– What is the most difficult problem you have had to deal with during the adoption process?
Another question was something like;
– What has been the easiest thing to deal with during the adoption process?
Answer: The children!
Keep focused. We’re almost there…
