Another day in the life of waiting and being UBER CLOSE!!
We were back to Alexandria, VA for our renewal of fingerprints appointment this morning. With the video camera ON MY LAP- JUST IN CASE, I told Pete that "the call" was of course going to come while sitting in the packed DMV like waiting area of the USCIS office. I said I was not going to hold back and for him to be prepared for me to be screaming and to potentially be escorted out of the USCIS office as a potential threat of some unknown sort. We got a good chuckle and then he remembered that we could not take cell phones in. WHAT!!!! Not that I WANTED the call to come in the USCIS office, BUT I COULD NOT MISS THE CALL EITHER---not after all this time (insert MAJOR womanly drama here)!!! We could be in there in the black hole for hours, like we had been in the past. I had this so perfectly orchestrated in my head before we left the house, as well as having the home phone forwarded to my cell, now I would have to quickly change course, because any woman out there waiting knows----there is a science to this and it must be well planned out and strategically thought about EACH and every time we leave the house. Well, nothing for me to really do but sprint to the car after being fingerprinted to see if I had indeed missed the call........I had not. Deep sigh, another day in the life of knowing we are SOOOO close and should be hearing soon.
I know I sound crazy, but I know many out there have done things like this, please feel free to share those in the reply to this post so that I don't seem really nuts! Come on, I know someone else has forwarded their phone..... :)
God has this planned and I know He will do it in His way, lets just hope I'm not stranded in the bathroom when the call comes, as I don't have a plan for this......yet :0
