We mailed ours the end of January, they got it Feb 1. I have all 3 hard copies of the NOAs, all dated Feb 5, and the biometrics appointment hard copy (appointment for 3/1). Also, our case status online has been updated. My husband got the email and the case came up "doesn't exist" when I tried to enter the number that day. But a couple days later all three receipt numbers were there.

We're also most anticipating the EAD.

Why are you nervous about your tax return and vaccinations? Did you use your 2013 tax return and did you submit I-693?

Okay you should be fine. I used the 2012 tax return but I do not think it will make a difference if you used 2011 or 2012 since 2012 is not due till April like you stated.

I used the old ones, but I found a mistake, when I put down current income, I used what he earned in 2012, not 2011, hope that will trigger a RFE, and not something more serious.

And I didn't go for the I-693, just send a copy of my vaccination records from back home. I looked into it, seems I have all the "must have" shots, but I tend to over-worry.

Hey don't sweat it, the worst case is that it will trigger RFE so no worries. Even if they require new vaccination, you can always get it done here so whatever your worries are, the solutions are easy okay.

Yes, I am trying not to let it get to me, especially since I tend to stress a lot over the smallest thing. Thank you for the encouraging words.

So, I got my numbers, but they are not in the system just yet. The emails did say to search for them after I receive the notifications in regular mail.
