More good news on the immigration front!! We were told it would take about a week to hear from The Sydney Consulate that they had received our file and we couldn't do the fingerprint check or anything until that was done. Yesterday, we received notification that Sydney had our file!! One day it took! I can't believe how it is moving along now. So, today Kevin stopped by the police department and got his finger prints done, then he went on into Brisbane to see his aunt and stay there for the night. Tomorrow he goes in for his medical check and we are well on our way! When he gets home tomorrow evening he should have the paperwork that I sent over.. I'm hoping! Then, next week he should receive the documentation from the medical check and then we can send everything in to the consulate!

Let's see... another day at work yesterday. Was really busy, but I feel like I'm not getting anything done. I always feel that way when I have new people. Today I HAVE to focus on getting the larger phone bills paid, because they have to be complete by Thursday. It takes me an entire day to them. That is what I am going to try to focus on today.

I set up to have a dryer delivered to us on Friday. I'm going to rent one for $22 a month until we move out of the apartment. I figured that is pretty inexpensive. We will be moving in about 5 month hopefully. I don't want to dish out $350 right now and that is the cheapest dryer I can find. Maybe after the beginning of the year, after we move, once taxes are done LOL

I'm off! Have a great day/evening everyone! I can't wait to see what you submit to our challenge!

Oh My Goodness Susan - this card is stunning. Look at all those fabulous papers. More good news for you and Kevin - whoop whoop ! racing along now. I know what it's like waiting for immigration - we went through it 8 years ago - 18 months of waiting to hear things and then all go! Hugs, Karon
