Court on Thursday was the 'almost end' to Isaac's adoption. I still need to forward a copy of the final decree on to our agency when I get it and keep up with the letters and photos we agreed to with his placement. There was also the question of that last $3537.18 in placement costs that were outstanding on his account. Fridays mail brought the 'sorry we can't help with your adoption costs' response from our last pending grant application - the one that I had been hoping would cover that remaining balance and clear our debt.
Because moving has been chaotic I have not been good about watching our checking account (read into that the truth that I last balanced our checkbook sometime in March...so unMBA of me!) so I had no real idea of what was in there except that we were not overdrawn. What fun it was to see that between the refund for half a year of overpaid MN property taxes on the house we sold, pre-paid house and car insurance in MN and that little that was left over from the sale of that same house...there was $3550. in my savings account. Perfect to cover the outstanding bill and take us right back to our usual place of under $100 in savings. It's sort of a joke...nothing sits unused too long in this branch of God's Warehouse - be it clothing, pots, dryers, cars or cash. It just keeps moving into it's next perfect place.
