    Chris and I met online in Second Life in 2012. We were just good friends as I was with someone and then last fall he was telling me his dating woes in RL and how he was never dating or getting married again ever. I replied yeah me either and then we starting talking more and more and then we met up in RL and the rest is history. He asked me to marry him when I was down to his place in Colorado Springs for our second visit.

  1. Just so you know I had my interview on November 7th and I was terrified. I did not get the notice of approval until December 7th or so. My interview was only 15 minutes. They said look for mail in about 30 days. So I have a feeling yours is like ours.
  2. 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.
  3. My card came today. Omg it feels good.
  4. Guess I just needed more patience. Thanks for letting me vent the other day. Today I got notice from uscis that my new card was being produced. Oh how the weight has gone from my shoulders.
  5. Nope they asked for nothing. All the guy told us after our 15 minute interview was how glad he was that I had all this evidence and that everything looked in order and to look for mail in the next 30 days. I guess I just worry so much. I can't imagine not being with my husband.
  6. Well its been a month since our interview and nothing. No approval on the website or denial. The officer said everything looked good and to look for mail in 30 days. I am assume that is 30 business days so I guess I have a couple more weeks before I should be concerned. I guess I better send in my renewal for my EAD as its up in May next year. I am really really worried and wonder if I am not getting the green card. I would be devastated. I have a super great job that I love and I just got a raise to boot after 4 months. Sigh. I am playing off as nothing is wrong to my husband but I am super scared that maybe I am not getting the green card. People who interviewed just before us and after us have all got their green cards so this is why I worry. I am beginning to think I should have stayed in Canada.
  7. Yep totally normal
  8. Well the interview went really well and the guy told me everything was in order and to watch the mail. Sooo guess what APPROVED!!!!
  9. Well my husband and I are getting ready to check out of our hotel and head over to the immigration office for our interview in 2 hours. My poor husband was so nervous he got sick. I have him fixed up now. I told him we have what we have and wont offer up extra unless they ask. He is worried because he no longer makes enough to support me but I filled out the supporting household form thing as I make more than enough so we will see. We have a sponsor lined up if we need one.
  10. Welcome to Colorado! Hmmm Well you might get it faster. I applied end of December 2017 for AOS and my interview is this coming Thursday.
  11. Congrats on the GC. Thanks for the detailed Interview Experience in Denver. My husband and I have our interview coming up there on November 8th. We are driving up the night before and staying overnight. I am soooo nervous. I have everything in a binder that I have collected but still I worry.

    Moving by land

    My sister and brother in law drove me down almost a year ago now with all my boxes in the back seat with me and my cat and the truck full. I did make an itemized sheet but they never even looked at it. Nor did they look at my cat. I mentioned her and they said yeah that is fine long as you make sure she has the shots she needs for Colorado. The only reason we were 2 hours at the border was because I went through the 24 hour port at the Peace Garden and they hadn't done a k-1 visa in years and had to call to find out how. LOL
  13. Forgot to reply to you and I guess they could be for difficult cases. Just an update. My interview is coming up in Denver for my AOS on November 8th. I filed end of December 2017. Super excited cause I really thought I would have to wait a year for the interview.
  14. Looks good to me Janet. My list looks bout the same. We just got me added onto our rental lease since it renews November 1st. We only have the picture of us that the Judge took after he married us at the courthouse so no wedding here either. I am collaging some of our Facebook pics onto pages so hopefully that will suffice. I never thought of Power of Attorney. That is a great idea. We are heading to carmax today to pick up our new to us car. It is in both our names so we will bring that with us including our car insurance. I just started gathering our stuff for our November 8th interview. Super excited for you guys! I can't wait to hear how it all went.
  15. I work 1:15-10pm mon-fri so I took an early quit on the 7th of 7pm just in case we have to go to Denver that night and stay over in a hotel. Right now its unpredictable snow season in the mountains. We had fun fog and blizzard like conditions yesterday that would have made driving to Denver horrible.
