    Amanda and Josh got a reaction from Austramerican in We have arrived!   
    So my children and I made it safe and sound to the US. We somehow managed to get on the plane without paying excess baggage. POE was a
    PIA. We were made to sit to the sit and told that we were not their priority adn we had to wait til everybody else was seen, lovely welcome to America that was! They had lost our luggage and wanted me to get them more photos of one of my kids. I was like "well I can't cos the airline lost my bags" so note to everybody, bring spare pictures in your carry on!! He ended up letting it go and after 2 hours we finally got to clear customs. Thank god I had special assistance (cos I'm hugely pregnant and travelling with 3 kids) and somebody had gotten my luggage for me.
    Our new American friends and family have thrown us a party to welcome us which was lovely and we have done some serious shopping! Starting this week we will get down to the business of a noraml life, enrolling in school, joining gym etc.
    Thanks for all your help this far guys, it's been invaluable. xx

    Amanda and Josh got a reaction from VanessaTony in The big move - is it really going to be worth it????   
    I had a rather interesting conversatin with the Ohio nursing board yesterday. Apparently Midwives in Australia have more autonomy than in Ohio, are allowed to do so much more than in Ohio but apparently I may have to go back to school to be registered as a Midwive there??????? I am so annoyed. it would appear it's going to be a painful process to get registered! the only upside is that at least I can earn semi decent once I am registered but being the door person at walmart is looking might fine compared to going back to school (when I have already done 5 yrs of it)!

    I use the Military family reference to keep myself grounded in this process all the time. My brother in law was deployed and saw his family only once for 2 weeks in 12 months. I see my husband more regularly than that and at least I know exactly where he is and that he is safe.

    yes one of my children is 18 but we married before her 18th. We have filed for all the kids too but it has been painful process figuring out what needs to go with the next lot of forms! I am sure we will figure it out eventually. I just can't wait until we can start living our normal life!
