Today was supposed to be the second try at our homestudy. I got up early, cleaned the whole house only to get a phone call from her saying she thinks we should delay it AGAIN! As you all know trial is December 9th, but on that date the judge *could* sign the actual order OR she could wait a month till her little heart desires to sign it. Nice huh? Next, is the Manifest Best Interest where the GAL will testify as to what she thinks is the best placement for the child. Do you think that could happen at the same time as trial? NOPE! Of course not, that would be too efficient (can you tell I'm annoyed?!) So...that's another hearing AFTER trial...who knows when. And yet another reason we are delaying is because DCF recently changed their fingerprinting requirements and they are no longer good for a year, only 90 days!!! So, since things haven't been happening at all as hoped with the courts our prints will expire in Jan. Add to that our moving in January and it only makes sense to hold off because otherwise she will have to do 2 homestudies.

Sooooooooooo....I have a really clean house, no one coming over and 4 boys to trash it all again this afternoon! Fun times!
