Waiting… so hard

Guys, I am so anxious. I should be receiving notice that the USCIS (US Customs and Immigration Services) has received our paperwork. I sent it off three weeks ago–and now I am waiting.

Meanwhile, we are packing up, selling, giving away, and moving. It’s tough–seven plus years in a country allows you to accumulate a lot of “stuff.” It would be easier probably if it were just my stuff. But there are the kids and Victor to consider. I am trying to keep an eye on things that they aren’t playing with. Actually, we’ve already packed up quite a bit.

I’ve been thinking, scheming, and planning to figure out how to move across the border. It’s a bit tricky with the doggy. I will have to figure out how to get him all packed up and ready to go. He also needs a letter from the veterinarian to say he’s had his shots. It will be a little bit more of a hassle to take him along. I will be limited to hotels that accept dogs, and that’s a bit annoying.

I feel so full of emotions right now, it’s hard to even put into words how I am feeling. One minute I am excited–the next sad. I try to push all of the negative thoughts out of my mind. It’s way easier to go day to day thinking happy thoughts!
