I have chosen not to perseverate on the fact that in 5 days, my home study will expire and my agency has yet to set us up with an appointment with the social worker, despite the fact that we paid our update fee in early April, our forms to complete weren't sent to us until early May, and I sent all the forms that we could complete by May 18 (although they apparently got lost in the mail for almost 2 weeks). I am choosing not to let that eat me up inside because we will most definitely have a lapse even though I was told, "your date is in late June, you're fiiiiine."
I mean, we haven't had an opportunity since March, so what are the chances we'll have one in the (hopefully super brief) time that our home study is expired?
I will try to forget all that, try to let go of any hopes or anticipations that MAYBE something might happen in the summer, because I keep doing this to myself and it doesn't ever seem to work out the way I thought it might.
So, I look forward to this:
|Pardon my drumsticks, but you get the idea.|
Blissful summertime, filled with dirt-streaked legs and arms from hours of gardening, reading a zillion books on my chaise lounge out back, and at least July without doing much of anything school-related, if I can help it. Time to relax, and build my stores up for another September where I'm pretty sure I will be there, and so I'd better plan as if I am. Reading, gardening, writing, lounging, vacationing...now THAT is something tangible to look forward to.
