Chiming in as a January filer. :thumbs:

Kata (my fiance') was here over Christmas and I put his application in the mail just after getting back from the airport. I think it was one of the few things keeping me sane that day.

He's the hopeful, high spirited one. I'm the worrier. :blush:

Hoping for our sake, and all those waiting in front of us, that things start picking up soon.

In the mean time, I snatched the 'list' from one of the other threads if we want to use that.

Otherwise, I'm sure Igor's list will do just fine.

Got the acceptance e-mail at 12:22am this morning 01/11/2011.

The weird timing of it makes me wonder if they aren't sent out at automated times from the system.

Because I doubt anyone is working at just after midnight.

It's a relief though.

All the best to you Jan filers! The time does pass pretty quick! I'm just over 3 months waiting and between all the packing/organising paper work/selling furniture etc there seems like hardly enough time.

Good Luck to all and a speedy approval! :)

Adding you to the list. Welcome!

Looks like your timeline is a little screwy, you might want to update it with the new 'sent date' of 1/4 since that's when USPS got it. It still says you sent in December.
