Eight years ago today Aaron and I started dating. These past 8 years have been the most wonderful, blissful years of my life. (Ok, you can stop rolling your eyes). Seriously though, I can't believe we've been together for 8 years! It's gone fast.
To mark the occasion we decided to go get fingerprinted downtown at the Federal building! Actually, the government told us when we had to go down there - which was 8:00 this morning. It was worse than being at the DMV. We were there for over an hour. It took them almost a half an hour to fingerprint the lady in front of us. Apparently she had "bad prints." It took about 20 minutes for them to print BOTH me and Aaron. It's a pretty slick system- it's all computerized...which makes me wonder - why couldn't they use the prints that we had taken a few months ago just to apply for our adoption? You'd think they'd all be in the same database. (Aaron's answer would be "because it is the government!")
On my way home from work I picked up Caribou Coffee and we had a 2 minute celebration of 8 years together and the end of paperwork for our adoption. At least for a few more months!
