So remember I said I lost one of our documents for our dossier?  Well…..let me revisit that statement.  While standing in front of the mirror, completely irritated the State had not yet sent me the document, after THREE weeks, I felt the burning need to finish everything up.  I started to really wrack my brain on where I put the elusive document.  I mean, I throw things away right and left that I need, but not generally things related to our adoption.   In fact, it can probably be stated that in regards to our adoption, I am a horder.  Which is opposite my true nature.  As many of you know by visiting my minimalist house.  So in my *enightened* moment I realized, if I were me where would I put that for safe keeping??  The SAFE.  It was in our safe all along to prevent me from trashing it.  I have a serious habit of putting things away for *safe* keeping, and they are very safe alright.  From everyone-forever.  Sigh.  So we raced back to the house on Friday afternoon, snatched the last document from the safe and rushed down to the SOS’s office one hour before they closed.  I had nine documents, which in truth I think irriated them, but the wild look in my eye was enough for them to take pity on me.  The silver lining to all this? 1)  I am not going completely crazy & 2)  The dossier is off on Monday and I feel like a free woman!  It is time to par-tay!
