All about school

Sorry I’ve been a bad blogger lately. School started this week and it’s a tad more over whelming then I thought it would be. I’m taking 12 credit hours. I’ll walk you thru my day and sorry if this is boring. I start off with my communication class (lecture only on Tues. Morning) and I love my teacher. He’s super funny and keeps the class engaged. Then I walk to the other side of campus (yes with the boot) and go to Anthropology. This class is lame! The teacher pretty much goes over the reading he gave us to read prior to class or goes off on a story that has nothing to do with what the topic is. Then I take only a ten min. walk to my American Gov. class. I thought this would be my fav class but so far I’m not liking it. Mostly because I’ve only gone to one class and the teacher is CRAZY! She won’t let you go to the bathroom, leave early or come in late. Wants people using a computer to sit in the front (it’s stadium seating with a ton of stairs). She’s just kinda strict for a college class. I thought I left the Army last year. Maybe my next class will go better. Oh she also gave us a crap ton of homework. More homework than I had for my whole online class last semester. Then I have an hour break to eat lunch and what not. Then I go to communication (this is the talking/group part) and I like my teacher in this class as well. She’s a TA and seems really down to earth. This is by far my fav topic yet but like I said I’ve only gone to one class. Now this class and my next were in the same building, great because I only ten min. Well the communication class got moved as there was no way to hook up the computer and the chairs did suck but now it’s on the other side of campus. I’m gonna be late every class! I might might maybe be able to make it if I wasn’t wearing the boot but there is no way with. My last class in Understanding Dance. I think I’ll enjoy this class. We have to go see a few performances and things like that. I don’t think it’ll be to hard. I really need to do well and raise my GPA. I don’t think any of my classes are to hard but they are going to a lot of work. I’m not sure it was the best idea to work 24 hrs a week and go to school 12. Plus the drive to and from. I need more study time during the week. Working wen may have to go. Well see how it goes. It’s only week one so I hope that I’ll find a nice flow, right now it’s just over whelming. On a side note I had my doctors apt this morning to go over all my blood work. All normal! The doctor filled out my medical slip for the adoption so one more thing marked off my list. Now to get the classes down and the home study. Ready to get this ball rolling.

Home Assessment

It wasn't the home study like I thought, just the home assessment. It went awesome though! She said she was very impressed with how clean it was, the baby room looked awesome and everything was already baby proofed. She said she's never come to a house and they had all the paperwork already. We are doing our finger prints tomorrow and having the doctor sign off on our "physicals" (It's really just blood pressure, height, weight.) on Thursday. We both already happened to have an apt for different reasons then so it works out. We can't start our classes until Oct though. Last class is Nov 3rd. She said she thinks by the time we finish our classes that we'll be fully cert. We should have the real home study in a couple weeks. Should only take one home study since the house is done, then they come back and just have you read over everything and make sure it's what you answered and that everything is correct. She told us that she doesn't think it'll take very long to get a placement. I told her I'd heard 2 years for a newborn and she said she didn't think it would be that long. Shocked me! HAPPY! I can't believe by early Nov well be cert and we could have a baby by the end of the year. CRAZY I mean don't get me wrong I don't expect it to be that fast but you never know.

We have been cleaning like crazy people. A special thanks to my sister for all her help (It's really hard with a boot on your leg). I still wanna sweep the floor one more time but all in all this apartment is as clean as I've ever seen it. Yes we are that messy/dirty. LOL! I think we are ready for tomorrow. I have all our extra paperwork, birth cert, insurance all that stuff. This is happening! SCARY! On non-baby news I start my Jr year at OU next week. Who knows if I'll finish or if we'll get a baby before or after I finish but I'm a student there and thats what matters. I never thought I'd A get this far in school and B ever be a student at OU!! I'll fill ya'll in after our meeting tomorrow. Wish us luck!

Well my morning started off with a bang. Theres how my day went. As some of you know I had some feet problems at basic and it got better when I came home and now it's been flaring up again. I had an apt this morning and well you see what they did. At least it's not a cast or anything. 3 1/2 weeks of this. It's not broken but he is hoping it's a soft tissue issue because if this doesn't work then it's an MRI and maybe a torn tendon. This will be tons of fun while trying to clean house. I can't put any weight on it unless I'm in the boot. AND they called and moved up our home study. I'm happy it's a day earlier and I'm already off that day but there goes a cleaning day. Onward and upward RIGHT?!

Home Study

Cleared our background! YAY Home study is next Friday! SCARY!!! My house is so dirty and gross. We were out of town this weekend so It's got two weeks of yuck and I'm not the cleanest to start. This week is gonna stink and I'm so tired from being gone all weekend and not resting. This is hard. I wanna be excited but I'm tired!! I can do this because the goal is a baby right!! I just need to keep pushing. It's crazy you try not to think about it and then woosh right back in it!
