No ifs, ands, or buts

I have officially completed,professionally assembled, and mailed in the additional evidence packet for Chucho's case!

I feel nervous..No, I'm anxious!

My mind is running rampant with What ifs?.. What if the packet gets lost in the mail? What if I forgot to include one important letter? What if I wrote his case number wrong on the front? What if, What if, What if? (And obviously there's too many to even continue past the arrival of the documents..There's a million that just include the mailing process.)

Geez. I sure will be glad when he's back and all the paperwork is completed.

However, it is a comfort to know I'm not alone as there are thousands of others in our situation with the immigration process..Thousands (TO THINK!) who are also anxiously awaiting the return of a loved one and the relief that comes at the end of the journey and re-unification...and definitely not alone as I'm sure every single one of us spouse petitioners is anxiously awaiting the end of the immigration-related ifs, ands, or buts.

I suppose at the end of the day all I can do is cross my fingers and hope for the best...Here goes....

(Goodbye ifs,ands,buts and HELLO bright possibilities!)

New Year, New Beginning

2010. What a crazy, exciting, adventurous year. Just to recap- Chucho and I began the year in a new place, Oklahoma! After months of nagging from Joe, my brother, we decided to pack up the baby, ourselves, and a little belongings and make the journey from Washington down to Okie. As we all knew Chucho would soon need to return to Mexico for awhile, this would enable Joe, April, and all the kiddos to spend time with us as we had no idea what the future would hold with the immigration papers. Re-location seemed inevitable anyway so why not use our time wisely?!
