today it’s official… my last day of work (for the time being) and guess what, my boss is out of the office *lol* First I thought we could have a group lunch today or something, but nobody behaves like I am really going anywhere (I decided to work in July anyways -though without pay, but they’re going to pay me back when I start with my work visa), so it’s not like this is the last day that I am around. It’s still kind of weird.My boss wanted me to finish up some things this week, so I was quite busy the last three days and didn’t get home before 6 p.m. last night.
The visa stuff still causes some trouble (don’t ask me what’s going on… I don’t even want to go into it), but I’ll have a meeting with my new sponsor next week to go over the application for the H-1B visa. I hope everything works out with my J-1 status – the two-year home requirement that is.
Also, I might have to get my university diploma translated – does anyone know a place to do that by any chance?
I still haven’t booked my flight yet [yes, I know… :(], but I’ll definitely do that before the weekend. I am shooting for the 25th of July.
OMG, and then Cathy told me that she read that Joe is doing a small show in LA in two weeks… I really, really want to go, but it’s on a Thursday and I don’t know if I will be able to go that day… also, we probably drive down to Southern California the week after that (as I might catch a flight from LAX on July, 25th) and it would be a lot of driving in two weeks.
Honestly, I am hoping he’ll do another show like that in September (when Cathy is here :)), so we can go together.
On that note: Joe didn’t make to the final last night in “Dancing with the Stars” :( the judges just didn’t seem to like him and Ashly all along the way and yesterday after the scores they were in last place again.
The thing is that even with the highest public vote (3 points), it would have been hard for them to make it into the grand finale… because then John and Charlotte (in first place) would have had to have the lowest public vote to be even with them.
Bummer! I thought they were so marvelous together! I am still going to watch it next week, as all couples will be there again and perform a last dance :)
Btw, Jon’s Mom is coming up to Sacramento for a visit today. She hasn’t seen our place yet and is really excited. We’re going to spend a few days with her. The weather is supposed to be really nice (ahm… hot) the next few days, so we’ll see how that goes.
Love you all so much… and have a great weekend!
