Leaving for Montreal tomorrow

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Tomorrow my daughter and I fly out to Montreal for our interview Monday morning. Between the excitement of this finally happening and the nervousness of making sure we have everything, I feel like I'm going to be sick to my stomach :( My hubby is staying home, someone has to take care of the baby. I've never been away from our son for more than a few hours nevermind a few days. I wish they could both come with us, I think I'd be alot less stressed out. We'll stay until Wednesday so we can pick up the visas in person. It does help hearing about everyone else's experiences at the consulate and having a rough idea what to expect. I'll be sure to post mine as soon as I can. Wish us luck, back to packing and stressing out lol.

sure all will be a ok

besties to ya from red and jules

am killing time reading and listening to great tunes

riding the rails back to toronto.

all will be fine ,the guides from vj alumni ws just fab.

just remember to not take a bag to interview

even though there was a guy with giant briefcase.

had to dump my fabric portfolio in garbage can on rene levesque.

it was in there clean and dry when I came out at 9-30 am

just got a efficient moody guard, felt sorry for guy with personal knapsack.

now i emailed consulate re fabric portfolio and was told ok.

AM sure u will do just fine

how sad it is you have to come from bc

all in the train and hotel cost about 700 dollars but had great service

and made a full 3 days saying adieu to many mates in montreal.

moist eyes when train pulled out at 10am

but life moves on

enjoy your trip its all part of lifes highway

take care
