Hangin' wit da Home-Study
Friday, June 02, 2006
Well we finished the 1 on 1 part of the home-study. Mine was on Wednesday while Stef's was yesterday. I really do like our social worker. She laughs at my jokes, so she's obviously highly intelligent. Seriously though, she really is very nice and easy to talk to. Next up is our final visit with her (which is next week) and will be at our home. Course we're not yet prepared for a child (i.e., baby-proofing, etc.). But I believe the main purpose of the requirement to see the house is to make sure we don't live in a slum or something. I guess I need to clean my office otherwise she just might think it is a slum.

Overall I think the home-study is going well. Although sometimes the questions she asks seems more like you're talking to a Freudian psychiatrist doing some bizarre psychoanalysis of your childhood. Fortunately, I haven't yet been asked, "if you were an animal, which animal would you be?" The correct answer of course is a platypus. But I'm sure you all knew that.

    What does it mean if my answer to the animal question is lemur?

    If my answer is lemur what does that say about me? lol

    Well of course Lemur's represent the true meaning of understanding and enlightenment.

    Okay, Okay. So I'm trying to get Cristina to pay me off with a good bottle of Merlot.

    Thanks for the link. I echo Elle here...welcome to the RIDE. Its amazing. I think home studies are kind of overly feared. They're really not so bad...just expensive.
