Frus-tra-ted.

March 31, 2009

I am going to keep this simple, for one reason.  If I don’t–I might say something I should not.  Or think it.  Right now I am a might bit irritated, for lack of better terms, that are user friendly.  There are two realms that are adding to my agitation, but I have come to understand that with the bad there is some good and I have peace in that.  So I will limit my rant to 2 areas.

1.  House.  I am so over the whole situation. So over it.  To make a long story short, my realtor might just be the most agitating person I know.  I do like her, I used to like her more, but now she is on my list.  Which might not be the best place for her right now.  We have talked about renting our house, to which she replies…they will rip it up and you will have to replace your floors.  Um, hello numnuts, we are already having to decrease the price and we will get a tax deduction, which will pay for the price of the floors about 3 times over.  When I presented her with that info, I got the “well….that is true”.  Yes, my friend, you are not dealing with the average village idiot when it comes to real estate.  But maybe when it comes to adoption–more later.  Not to metion that I have to watch the comps in our neighborhood to make sure our house is priced accurately.  That is only the tip of the iceburg and I could go on and on, but you get the just of what I am dealing with. 

2.  Adoption.  So I sent in my dossier and evidently I am missing our FBI prints.  The part I love is that they are actually sepearate fingerprints from the other THREE sets that we have had taken over the last year.  Does it ever end?  Will I ever be free?  I guess not.  So while Jeremiah is in Alaska for the army, hopefully coming home on Friday if Mt. Rebdoubt behaves, we sit and wait AGAIN until he can come home and we can go get them.  Seriously.  This is seeming all very complicated.   But I guess the good things in life are never easy.  

Which is why I haven’t posted in the last few days.  I needed some time to digest all this before I could articulate it without sending my blood pressure up.  Each day is a chance to make it better, and this village idiot will check it all off the list one by one!

    Breath…its will be ok. Delays and conflicts are frustrating when you are in the adoption process, but in the end you will not even give them a passing thought. I promise. There were things that happened during our adoption that I got so mad about…but now I couldn’t even tell you what they were. And if I could…they really are no big deal.

    About the house…I have no advice. Sounds like you know what you are doing. Is there an opportunity for you to change realtors soon? Sounds like you may need one who is better looking out for your interest…not hers.

    Oh no!!! It is amazing to me how many times we need to be fingerprinted for this process….it is always something! I think at this time, we have each been fingerprinted about 7 times for both adoptions…nuts! I am sorry…let me know if I can do anything! Bummer about the realtor too…I am wondering if she does not want you to rent it out since she will not get a commission…Praying for you all!
