Yesterday came and went and we didn't get our grant application sent off. We are still waiting for stuff to be finished. Stuff other people have to do. Stuff that SHOULD have been finished months ago. I am beyond frustrated. We mailed our adoption application on October 24th....one week from today that will have been SIX MONTHS. I never imagined that it would take us this long to get approved...especially given my Type-A git-'er-done personality. We have hit snags that we shouldn't have. When we initially turned in that batch of paperwork (in November), the fact that we had out of state licenses should have been noticed. If there was ANY question, calls should have been made to find out THEN if we would need to change them. We also waited two months for a second signature...and in the end Plan B was used anyway.
I can't sleep tonight. (currently 2:14am) I feel tremendous frustration at my lack of control of the situation. Add that to an afternoon nap, a 2 Liter of Diet Coke and you have one girl to whom sleep lies just out of reach.
