...well, if that isn't a kick in the pants

Gonna keep it short and simple--I'm supposed to be cleaning house beofre Kris arrives in a few hours.

  • No 171H in the mail today.  Keeping my fingers crossed that it will still arrive tomorrow afternoon. Tracey, have you gotten yours yet?
  • Second kick in the pants: I ordered my new camera on Monday, but it still hasn't shipped from the warehouse.  What the heck?  It was only supposed to take 3-5 days, but now they are telling me it is delayed indefinitely.  Here's the real kicker--as I was cleaning up my office (the spare room that Kris is staying in) I lovingly looked at my old camera one last night.  And just for kicks and giggles, I thought I would try to get it to work.  Well, folks, the darn thing not only turned on, but it retracted the zoom lens that has been sticking out for the last 3-4 weeks.  Go figure. I even test fired a couple of shots.

So there you have it, all my updated in a heart beat.

NO! I came home again at lunch to check the mail and I was very disappointed. I tried to call USCIS again and they still haven't returned my call. I decided to go ahead and get the other documents certified and send them without the I-171, and I got a parking ticket in front of the Secretary of State's office. I got to my while he was writing it. Today was not my day. Maybe tomorrow will be - and hopefully it will be yours too!

Erica - crossing my fingers that it arrives in the mail today! I nearly forgot to send CIS a letter requesting new fingerprints. A general email from my agency triggered my memory. I was practically shaking when I realized I forgot to do it 3 weeks ago, like I was supposed to! We expire early April so hopefully we'll be alright - provided Indy CIS is on top of things! GO INDY CIS! Do you think if we sent them lots of positive vibes they'll do what we want? -Shasta
