It is time for us to have our recertification, as a foster/adoptive home, done again.  Can I just say, What a huge pain in the kister!  You would think once you are certified all you would have to do is submit update financial, medical, and driver's license changes, but NOOOOOOooooo!  I been since the middle of December doing this.  I have to submit every last document that we did in the first place.  How dumb is that?  Like they can't just pull our file!  *groan*  It is irritating because just when I think I have turned in everything, I get a phone call requesting more forms and documents!  Well, I guess if that's what it takes, I will do it every year.  

Now, that I've gotten that off my chest...How the heck are y'all?  We've had a bit of winter weather but nothing like in years past.  We will have a week of brutally cold temps and then a week of mild temperatures.  Not much in the way of snow but we did get some much needed rain.  I'm ok with that.  The older I get, the more I dislike winter.  I don't like to be miserable and it seems that's what happens every year.  Of course, this old house doesn't help.  When the furnace is running it is hotter than blue blazes, then as soon as it turns off, it gets so cold.  I don't understand why because we have put in lots of insulation, the windows are air tight, and I always roll up a towel to put in front of the doors.  I guess that is what happens in a 112 year old house.  I think I am going to have my Mister run a gas line to the living room so I can put a space heater in there.  That way, when I get cold, I can back up to it and warm my bum!  HeHeHe!  Y'all remember your Granny doing that?  I may or may not lift my nightgown like they did!  *wink*

Sorry for the lack of photos but this time of year just doesn't make me want to get the camera out.  And I'm sure not going out when it is cold, anyhow!  

I guess I am going to have to go back to the doctor.  My allergies have been acting up and I have, what feels like, a ball of phlegm in my lower throat.  Sometimes, it's not bad and then other times, it is super bad.  Not to the point that I can't swallow or breath but almost like it is the size of a quarter.  I hope it is just my allergies or sinuses but after about a month, I am getting kind of worried.  I guess we'll see what the dr. says before I start to worry much.

Well, I guess that is all I have to say.  I hope y'all don't stop coming by.  I know my posts are erratic but know that I do read y'alls blogs.  I just don't have a lot going on right now...well...except paperwork!  UGH!

Grace & Peace,
Pam

  1. I am sorry that you are having to redo all the paperwork, Pam. But I love your outlook on it in the end...if that is what it takes to remain a foster/adoptive parent then that's what you'll do.

    I do hope that when you go to the doctor that he can give you an answer to this problem you are having. I'll be interested in hearing what the outcome is, so please let us know.

    Have a good day...and stay warm!

    1. Dianna, thanks for stopping by. I will, also, be interested in what is causing this problem! It doesn't hurt, just annoying.

    2. Pam, normally I send an e-mail for this, but I somehow deleted the notification of your comment, but I wanted to thank you for stopping by at my blog today.

  2. Glad to hear from you. The older I get the more I dislike winter too. Have to admit though, this has been a mild January, well except for the three day snow and ice and single digit temperatures we had. Lately it has been like spring. Hope you feel better soon. It probably is just allergies. I've heard a lot of complaints about that lately, around here.

  3. Dear Mrs. G ... It was so good to hear from you. Well, it looks as if you have been busy with paperwork. I hope that it is all tended to by now. Our weather here in Kansas must be much like yours. We have had very little snow, some ice, quite a few nice days, a few bitterly cold days and we also have had some rain. Spring will be here before we know it. Hugs ♥ Teri
