Coming to a America!

Ok, so technically I already AM in America, but today was special: We had my immigration interview with the USCIS (the old INS) and were APPROVED!!!!

After submitting tons of forms and proof of joint finances, basically after proving that our great marriage is actually real -duh- I will now be getting my Green Card in, say, less than a month. Oh, and it isn't green...

This also means that I will be able to travel again, since I was stuck here for the last 14 months. (Poor me.)
There will definitely be a trip to the Netherlands in my near future, plus, I'm getting my ass to sweet warm Megggggico in February.

Ha! I'd wanted to restart blogging with a bang, so there ya have it. Bangin' away in the US of A!

Congrats!! (Gefeliciteerd)
Oh, the road it takes to get a green card.
Happy Traveling to the Netherlands!
You will be surprised how different it is after being away for that long.
My last visit was four years ago (shame on me)
The city I grew up in changed that much, I had never seen a "busbaan" and thought is was mighty fine to use as a bike lane!! ooops.

Ha Famke,

Wat fijn dat het nu eindelijk (bijna) rond is. Ik weet dat het soms enorm lang kan duren, burocratie..............
Misschien kun je Mexico overslaan en in februari naar Nederland komen en dan de handwerkbeurs in Zwolle bezoeken zodat breiend Nederland je weer eens live ziet?
Geintje, ga in die koude wintermaand amar mooi naar de zon!

Wat leuk dat je weer eens langskomt! Wel even aankondigen, he!

Mexico lijkt mij gaaf - jullie gaan toch niet alleen naar Cancun of zo, he?

Ik had plannen voor 1 mnd Peru in de winter 2009/2010, maar ivm nieuwe baan in het onderwijsveld is het erg de vraag of dat lukt - of ze moeten mij ontslaan ;-)

congratulations on your entry in the green (pink) card club! Also, it's hilarious that a Dutch person would write "megggico". But what I really meant to say was...

America! Fuck yeah!!

Californie is erg dichtbij, wist je dat?

Maar gefeliciteerd!

Zeg, woon je dicht bij Seattle? Ik ben daar de 30e.

Gefeliciteerd! Wel raar dat je pas het land weer uit mag als je eindelijk weet dat je mag blijven ;-)
