The wait is still on....

Still nothing from immigration is making me sick and all I have to say is I am relieved I started a new job yesterday as keeps my mind off of it... a tiny bit....

I got a new job with more money YAY! Moving on UP! Now to get motivation to do a masters heh heh. Someday. I am now a Vocational Assessment Coordinator, at least that is my title. I am only conducting follow ups with clients at the moment for counselors and then will hopefully learn to give tests as well to individuals.

Tomorrow is my Daddy's 50th Birthday! Going to my sisters new pad for a cookout so that should be nice tomorrow night. Then bringing Gabby to a parade on Saturday morning if the weather cooperates!

Back to waiting...........

Video blogging anyone?

Ok a few blogs I follow have done video blogs...I so want to do this as I can ramble on for days but for some reason have issue with getting on to actually type each would love to try my thing at video blogging so I could post more often! I have a cam on my laptop but it seems to only take stills unless of course I am using it on a messenger service.
So anyone know if I can use this somehow or do I have to use my digi cam and then upload?
Thanks for any tips folks!

Don't Know just don't Know

Well we got notice from immigration we are "stuck in security background checks" and that it could take up to an additional 180 days! Ummmm WTF?! I am trying to stay positive though and hoping they just gave this to us as an excuse instead of telling us "Oops yeah we forgot about you guys". We did receive a touch on our case (the date changes on their website every time they do something with our case) both the 13th AND 14th though sooooo here's hoping something is happening and we get our approval soon! I want our September 27th wedding DAMMIT!!!

Back to work tomorrow had a nice weekend though and seemed long which is always a nice thing instead of it going by super quickly. Drank some pear cider and also strongbow cider yumyum summertime! Watched my adorable ginger headed niece and hung out with some old friends.

Tomorrow though I have to work springs all week at work...what does this entail you ask? Well me checking over a 1,000 springs to make sure they are gauaged times ughhhh. Oh well hopefully the week will fly by and I will be back in the class room the next week.

Here are a couple faves I snapped at the park of Gabby and her friend Josh (I have been friends with his Daddy since I was in the 9th grade awwww).

Ok and for complete randomness I am in LOVE with this ring on etsy and think this is going to be the look I am going to go for when Gareth and I go to get my ring made....

Really? Nothing yet?


Yup nothing yet from immigration....all I can say is FUCKKKKKK it is so irritating and aggravating and infuriating and every other angry word that ends in "ing".

I did call and get through to a real person on Tuesday who took my name and info down and even gave me a reference number! Thank you Erica whoever you are! Thing is I have no idea what to do with this here reference number as it doesn't seem to have anywhere I can plug it into to find info now about this number haha....

I am getting so tired of seeing all these people who filed after us get approvals :( I am happy for them don't get me wrong but it is soooo hard. I know I got divorced right before our application went in and I know that may slow up things but really doesn't seem it would be that big a deal! I mean I had all documents stating I am legal to marry again etc... people get married all the time right after being divorced from others so not like I am the first to ever try it! JEESH.

Only other thing I think could be slowing things down is the fact that Gareth attempted to come here in December and got turned around and sent back to London. But even that they told him should not cause any problems in the future for him to come is just they thought he was going to try and stay (well we are doing things all by the book and purposely asking for him to be able to stay this time and look what good it is doing us!?).

So yeah it is one of them days where I am none to happy....It is also hot as Satans bumhole in this 3rd floor apartment so I am chilling in my bra with a fan right on me.. ACE.

Seems I think I can go off...I go a few weeks then nope back on I go....this last time I went well over a month but again back on as of today.....I think my birth control is what really fucks me up and then the prozac just helps me be back to normal so I am not such a nut job! I don't like to be mean and bitchy and know instantly when I am acting that way (although cannot stop it easily once it happens!). So I decided to just deal and go back on my pretty little blue pills. I may need xanax as well with all my damn tummy troubles I have been having with the stress over this visa process ughhhhhhh!
Pill me up!
