Well the week was busy at work. We got a new client and that makes the team REALLY happy! We needed it and hopefully the momentum will keep up. Today I plan on going into the office and spring cleaning some things. We don’t have housekeeping in our office and things need dusting, wiping, etc…. so since everyone is out today I will do that 🙂
On the adoption front, my agency social worker was on vacay this week. I believe she is back to work today, so hopefully she will be able to look over the home study and note any changes by Monday and we can get those back to the home study agency. I know my coordinator said she looked at the home study and saw only a couple of little things… so that is good.
On Tuesday evening I am going to take the two classes that I have to take in person. Then just waiting on the Dr’s office to call me to come pick up the forms they needed to complete. They said 7-10 business days… today is 6 so again.. hopefully they get their act together and I can get that done and sent off to the home study agency. I hate just waiting… especially because seriously, the forms will take all of 120 seconds to complete and sign.
On a non adoption front.. I am now a red head and LOVE it! A friend of mine from high school owns a salon. Well on FB he posted a request for hair models who were interested in a color. They were using a new line of products and needed to have the stylists use the product while the product educator was there to ask questions. The models needed to have gray roots. Not a problem here. I started growing in gray in my late 20’s. If not for box color I would be totally gray. No Joke. ANYWAY…. I went in on Monday. The educator lady was awesome… she was from L.A, she looked famous and was gorgeous with gorgeous hair, clothes, the works. She clearly knew her color skills were top notch. No doubt. The stylist my friend assigned me to was a sweetheart. It appeared the hair models were simply getting touched up and their color enhanced a bit. Well the educator consulted me she asked me about myself and my job, etc… Well long story short… the “muddy brown” that I had my hair was doing no justice for me (I happen to agree but what’s a girl who is saving for adoption supposed to do?). The educator lady threw on an apron and she and my stylist went to work on stripping my color and turning me into an amazing redhead! Can I tell you this? The educator lady didn’t do that for anyone else. I felt special and important… like I was on some show getting a total makeover! It was a long process but worth it and I love it. My hair is soft and awesome and wow! Did I mention this was free?? So ya I will have to keep it up and maybe I will…. It feels good to spend a little money on myself. I feel attractive and spunky. I was sure my Brother In Law would be like.. “WTH??” Instead, he saw it was like, “OMG.. it totally fits you”. Ava, my niece saw it and immediately her eyes widened… she smiled… and says as she walks slowly towards me without ever taking her eyes off my hair, “Aunt Trace, I love your hair…. can I paint my hair that color??!!” Anyway, that was the big news of the week 🙂
So, hopefully by end of week next week there will be a few items crossed off the list. Have a great weekend!!
**UPDATE** I had to post this article because I am sure MANY families created by international adoption are saddened and worried over this womans actions. This makes me so upset. I am sure anyone who reads this or heard about is as well… who does this?? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1264744/American-sends-adopted-Russian-boy-behavioural-problems.html
