My first home study is in two hours and I am soooooo nervous!!! I wish my PRIDE instructor was coming out here to do this home study. I loved her so much and feel so comfortable around her!! The woman who is coming is really nice but I don't know her very well, I have only talked to her a few times. My house is clean, closets are even clean in the entire house and I am ready for her to poke around and do her thing. The thing that makes me most nervous is that she won't think my home is big enough or good enough for me to foster or I will say something to make her not like me!! I talk a lot, especially when I am nervous and I have to try to stay quiet and only answer when asked a question....no extra talking in there!!!
During the last PRIDE training, we talked about the home studies and they mentioned that beds must be three feet apart. Well, the crib is not three feet away from my bed and there is no way with the layout as it is, that I will be able to have three feet between the bed and the crib. I wonder how some are able to have two babies in their room and keep three feet between all beds? I am so nervous about this part that I even looked at moving to something bigger. Then I realized that this is home and we are going to make it work and if they don't approve me because there is not three feet between our beds, then so be it :/
Ok, my nerves are getting the best of me. I am gonna go scrub something to make the time pass faster.
Next time I post, I will have my first home study done!!!
