I have our I-129F(s) ready.....I think.....I hope.....Oh my gosh, I had better have it ready, as it is to be shipped out Monday with a Wednesday delivery to the U.S.C.I.S. in California. I have already made a date with my "Rain Man" (my endearment for him) to sit down Sunday and go through each and every page of all three packages, that are exactly alike. Am lucky as he arrived stateside just last week, so this process wont be so long....I hope. Oh and three packages.... as one goes back with him, a second copy in case them folks get igitfied.... and then of course the original. And when I say these packets are identical.... I mean identical....right down to the notarized letters of intent and the baby snot that got mixed in with the coffee stains. I was so ####### about this information and evidence, I sure hope these folks don't send that dreaded R.F.E. Am afraid I would go ballistic. I mean come on....I had to get ink for my printer three different times. I spent hours upon hours creating contents sheets and organizing and screaming at the printer to bleeping bleepity bleep and bleeping print right. My poor fiance......he has watched me getting these together for a couple months now and just shook his head when I would go off the deep end after I learned something new that made me change something in the packets or that a form wasn't the most updated and accepted. I swear at times....yeah at times I was even dreaming about copying, scanning and printing documents and evidence for years upon years.......Okay so it wasn't a dream....it was a reality nightmare.

Okay ...... So the long and short of this little rant and panicked speech....... I wanted to thank all y'all for all the answers and knowledge that helped me get this stuff done....the right way....and that much closer to having my fella ,,,,Home and for all the other questions I aint asked......well not yet.

I feel like I am stepping onto a wild roller coaster......But ....even though I am not ...NOT....not at all a fan of roller coasters.....I can look up and see him, and know I wouldn't hesitate to get into all of the wildest roller coasters you could think up, just to step into his arms. Wish us luck y'all.....we join the ranks as of Monday morning.post-81170-12720648606173_thumb.jpg

Good luck!! And may your visa journey be Speedy!!! :):star:


Invictus..

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll.

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley

"Contrary to what the cynics say, distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It's for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love... It's for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough..."- Anonymous
