......long silence......
I know what all of you are thinking, and if it's what I think your thinking, you haven't been dealing with "the system" long enough or you've been watching too much Life Time over the holidays.
YOU think on Christmas eve a SW knocked on our door and said, "OH, D, I've waited all day for the supervisor to finish your case review and sign it and I just could NOT leave until I brought you the final adoption papers. I know you've waited 18 needless months for this, and I wasn't going to go home until this boy had PARENTS FOR CHRISTMAS! Here, here it is. Sign these papers and your adoption is all done!
HAHAHAHA,HEHEHEHE, you poor naive people. NO!!!!! (As we all know, or will know soon enough all "social agencies" are closed working 4 days before & 4 days after all major holidays. Closed 2 working days before & 2 days after for all minor holidays (like boxing day in Canada & sushi day in Japan) Do not make the mistake of thinking anything happens between November 1st & Feb. 1st.
Anyway, I digress, back to my miracle.
Our Christmas miracle every year .... so far. Is getting the Christmas decoration back up the match stick size drop down stairs to the attic. Where Barbie & Ken would break a rung if not careful. Pushing 100 lb plastic containers BACK up those "stairs" with out the help of gravity we had letting them tumble helter skelter down said stairs 3 weeks before.
We call it a miracle.
When the afore mentioned happens with a SW. We will call it, "God coming down and having a little heart to heart talk with a SW and her agreeing something needs to be done".

So funny! I knew it couldn't be a SW call, either...guess I spent enough time in the system. *grin*

I'm going to take decorations down tomorrow morning, but I get to toss them down into the basement, so I'm lucky, I guess.

Hope you have a Happy New Year!

I thought of starting a bonfire and throwing all ours in this year and going out to buy all new next year,would certainly take care of the hauling and storing part.We are also waiting for our SW's Holiday to be over.Jill

I surely pray that our adoption goes a lot smoother than yours. I am praying by Valentine's Day.

Thanks for the suggestion too!
