Best Christmas Ever: UPDATE!

Our application has been approved! Woo Hoo!

I wasn't really worried about it (seeing as both me and Husband are kind, clean, and relatively well-off), but I definitely had a moment where I felt a bit unsure. It reminded me of my college days when I applied for a sales job at Radioshack. Once I completed my application, they informed me that they would be doing a background check on my criminal record and they asked me if there were any indiscretions I would like to confess to at that point. I might have looked guilty, because I thought for a moment before saying, "Um, no. Wait! Do speeding tickets count?"

It was so silly, because I had ZERO criminal activities to report and yet, I suddenly felt unsure, like I was forgetting something and I didn't want to get caught in the lie. Crazy!

Anyway, the point is: We're getting the dog! HOORAY! Now, I have to decide if I can wait until January 4th to get him, or if I want Husband to drive 6 hours to southern Illinois to pick him up tomorrow and to receive him as my Christmas present. Hmmmm, very tricky.

I hope everyone's day is going as good as mine! :)
