Weekends are typically wonderful...that's what makes them the weekend, right? Here are a couple of things that made this weekend wunderbar!
1. We saw Wicked last night! (Thanks Beth and Joe!) I love musicals, and we hadn't gone for quite a while so it was a real treat! As always, I got goosebumps during the opening and closing acts. I've been listening to the soundtrack for the past couple of years, so I felt like I knew the story fairly well. I was pleasantly surprised by a few twists and turns.
2. We finished our homestudy paperwork. That's right, it's at the post office waiting for pickup tomorrow! Even though it took awhile to put together, I appreciate how it makes you reflect on your relationship, your childhood, and your future parenting skills. Even if you aren't adopting, I think the questions and reflections are great for any relationship. By the way, when I went by the post office there were people working, which suprised me since I thought all government offices were closed today.
Matt and I have pretty much done all that we can do on our part. The rest is in the hands of the social worker, agencies, government(s), etc... Let the real waiting commence!
