Yes, it's been a while, but we are here! School is officially out and I find that I am not at the computer near as much as when I was inputting grades, typing assignments, and having planning periods daily at work.
Picked up grandma from the airport and she has been helping me around the house. We have the POD completely unloaded (finally) and it is being picked up tomorrow. Cable was (finally) hooked up today, and OOPS, they hooked it up wrong and instead of basic antenna service with the minimum channels for $17.50/month, they hooked me up with expanded cable with Disney and HGTV - which I love but was foregoing due to money. This happened the last time I moved four years ago and I ended up having expanded until they audited my area and found the mistake - a mere 2 1/2 years later! We'll see...
On the kid front - Olivia's hair is so cute! We are still having problems with her pulling her barrettes/clips out if we put any in so she is "banned" from "pretties" at school. As soon as I get the software set up on this computer which my parents so generously passed on to me after purchasing a new one for themselves, I will post a pic.
I was very worried about getting Braeden's subsidy paperwork done, but I actually think it is going to be done fairly soon. The person who will be doing it is the person who brought Braeden to my door at 3 days old. She was also the caseworker for the little 2 year old I was supposed to be adopting which turned into a fiasco. She ended up in another aspect of the agency, but we have kept in touch from time to time when I see her there. She knows what I've been through and wants to get it done quickly. She also told me she is going to start Olivia's subsidy paperwork too. Yay us!!!! I, unfortunately though, will not be completely convinced and assured until I know it is done and has been sent in to the state. Prayer that it happens soon!!!
Hope all is well with everyone else. :)
