it just has to!
After a really terrible night of not being able to sleep, because of the heat (it was 83Â°F = 28Â°C in our apartment), my worries and some unpleasant menstrual side effects, the world looks a little better today.
I was thinking the whole visa crap through again and -even if it means a lot more bureaucracy I’ll have to deal with- I am pretty sure I’ll get the visa.
My sponsor is pretty much rock solid – it all depends on when they can apply for my new visa.
I now have to figure out with my boss, if we want to get an advisory opinion from the State Department about this two-year home requirement rule (2YHRR) or if we should just go with what my visa says. In the case that I would be subject to the 2YHRR, my boss would have to apply for a waiver. Of course, that would all take some time (more paperwork *yay* :() but it would probably go through.
I just hope we would have known all this bullshit beforehand and could have dealt with it earlier. It’s not like we didn’t start talking about all the visa stuff weeks ago, but as always bureaucracy slows everything down.
On a positive note, the third season of “Summerland” started yesterday (and it’s only 5 new episodesÂ :( how short have seasons become lately??) and I was able to tape it on my notebook :) now I have to figure out how to burn it on DVD! This is just way cool! :)
Oh and we made my yummy, yummy potato dish for dinner – sooo good :) People, eat more potatoes!
And then I heard on the News last night that Katie Holmes is converting to Scientology – that’s kind of spooky, don’t you think? (Wow, I just realized it’s pathetic what makes Headline News on American television).
P.S. Happy Birthday, Sanna. Love ya.
