Home study

We had the in-home portion of our home study this afternoon.  I'm terribly glad I cleaned my bathroom and made my bed, because the social worker DID look in every room!  She did not, however, check my cabinets for child safety latches, my end table for dust, or my outlets for plugs.  (Future-adoptive-parents-yet-to-have-a-home-study:  Don't quote me.  Yours may get checked.)  The results of that examination would have been: Yes. No. Yes. 

All in all, it was mostly no big deal.  Unless one is uncomfortable talking about the strengths and weaknesses of one's marriage, that is. 

We will each meet once more individually with the social worker at the beginning of next week. 

Now I'm off to figure out how to get my kids to obey.
