Foster Care Update

HOLY COW...things are actually moving ahead....I have my first meeting with the social worker on Monday, Nov 22.  Don't have all of my "corrections" done but close and she said we could start the home visits while the rest is "corrected".  I'm nervous and excited at the same time.  I've got a lot of things I want to get done around my house before that meeting just to be sure things look perfect. (i.e. more painting, decorating, organizing)

I will have to relive all the horrors of my foster care experience in ND...(heck just thought...maybe I need to change my name as I'm not "ndfostermom" anymore since I live in a new state....oh well.)  I'm am really hoping that my new county is more helpful with placements and assistance that the child may need.  If I find out they are like my old county...I  think I'll just throw in the towel right away...I'm not up for dealing with all that BS again.

Work is FINALLY slowing down with harvest completed for the most part.  It's nice to begin to have a life again outside of my job. 

I even joined a Women's Recreation Volleyball League and am LOVING getting out once a week.  I never played volleyball (other than in gym class in school) but it's a lot of fun.  Good way for me to meet new people and make new friends.
