As part of the paperwork that we have to complete before we can have our next meeting with our adoption counselor, Carla and I each have to write an autobiography that provides answers to a very long list of questions. I decided to try starting mine today and while I think I have only answered about 1/8 of the questions, I have already written three pages. I cannot believe that anyone is going to be able to read what I am writing without falling asleep from boredom. My life is just not that interesting and yet I seem to have a whole lot to say about it. Like most things, I am probably way over-thinking this thing and probably don't need to be writing half as much as I am actually writing. But that's just not how I do things. Why say what you have to say in ten words when you can use fifty words to say the same thing. I am pretty sure that if I were to grade my own writing as a teacher, I would point out a whole lot of places where I have said the same thing multiple times in different words. I am pretty sure I have taught the kids that they should never do that. Oh well!
I am going to walk away from it for a bit and try again in a few hours. If this is only the start of the paperwork, I cannot even begin to imagine how long it is all going to take.
I will keep you all posted on the progress. I just needed to take a break!
