Thanks for the continuation thread. As for the medical aspect. I was very worried about that but when we had our interview I saw he had all our K-1 papers including my medical there and all he asked me for was supporting evidence of our relationship. :) Didn't even ask me for my vaccinations form or to get the flu shot which I thought they might due to the fact it was flu season. Course I had my interview 10 months after submitting the AOS. BTW the relief after you get the green card is amazing. I submitted a new I-9 form at work with my green card info and the site manager of my location congratulated me for getting it and said good cause we were not letting you go. lol Now I am looking to go back to school for computer engineering or cyber security. My job will pay for me to do it since it can benefit my job down the line as I would like to move into the IT department.


I hope everyone had a fabulous new year's. We went to a friends house and about 6 of us celebrated together with a finger food potluck and sparkling apple cider to ring in the new year while we played board and card games. Was so very nice. On the first my husband and I went to my good friend and coworkers house for a new years lunch of collard greens, black eyed peas and roast beef. OMG it was so good. My friend had gotten heck from her Mom and Grandma for not invited me and my husband to Christmas dinner. Her Mom wants to adopt me. ha I feel so much more at home now that work is going well and I am making my own friends. As an adult I am sure you know how tough it is to make friends. Tomorrow we are heading into Denver to visit another long time friend of mine from online and now a rl friend. Taking her a case of her favourite root beer and then out to lunch. She is giving me a dozen red and green tamales from a lady she knows. OMG best tamales I have ever had.
