I checked in with my new foster/adopt agency this morning and found out that my old agency is taking their sweet time in sending over my paperwork. I'm not surprised. They were never in a big hurry to do much of anything (other than to boss me around, irritate me, and make my life pretty much all around miserable). I guess they're succeeding in that if that was their goal.
I really thought they would be more than happy to get rid of me! Goodness knows, they didn't care for me much after I started getting an opinion and actually expressing it when it came to my kids and the things they were telling me to do. ("No. I will not leave work early to go home and get a single sheet of paper that you should have requested a week ago when you originally found out that you needed it and drive it to your office! We get home at 6:00. You can drive your booty over here when it's convenient for me and get it yourself!" "No. I will not sign something that requires me to be in a minimum of two different places at one time. You people have lost your freaking minds, and until you locate them, you need to back the heck off!" etc. etc.) I honestly thought that they'd receive my transfer request, do a Happy Dance, and courier my file over within an hour with a big "Thank You" note to the new agency attached.
I am going to play nice and give them until this weekend to send the requested documents. I have orientation and training all weekend at the new agency, and I want to get my homestudy done next week. If they would just send my paperwork and old homestudy, it would cut weeks off of my wait time before I can start accepting placements. I really don't want to have to make a personal appearance at the old place, but you'd better believe that I will if I have to!!! The Wrath of Mimi shall be smite upon them should they not provide the requested documentation by the end of this week.
