I also have a small confession to make... I am a control freak who stresses over tiny and ridiculous details. Yep, I am a person who feels the need to conquer it all and do it perfectly. Despite that fact, I was knocked down off of my high-horse when our Home Study Specialist called to verify my monthly income. "Why?" you ask. "Because if Shannon pays so much attention to miniscule and unimportant details, she surely would fill out her monthly income correctly?" The answer to that is - Nope! I put my annual income on the line where my monthly income was required. What a doofus! I think I stared at the forms so intently that they began to blur and my brain turned to mush. Hopefully they will still give a baby to a girl who has a mush-brain.
I also need to sing the praises of my husband, Jarred, for dealing with my control issues and perfectionist tendencies. He balances me out and brings me back to reality. (I am not in control, and I am very far from perfect.) Usually he does this gently and with patience. I think he should get an award or a merit badge.
