TO THE FINISH LINE


The race is on! Me against the dreaded USCIS fee increase. I started this renewal with my agency back in June. Last week I was Fed-Ex'd the release forms for the background clearance. These I sent back signed with all that was needed for the update for the home study..... except the signed and notarized History and Physical. THAT critical piece of the home study, my dear friends, was in my own hands. Someone who had the same home study person said that she did not need to provide a Physical form for her HS update... So, I was kind of hoping that the signed history paper really was not needed. I had recently gone to the MD for my yearly physical and just had to send it to the office for signing. Today, knowing that in a few days my HS needed to be finished and in the USCIS office with my $545.00, I jumped out of bed and hand delivered this to the MD's office. The whole reason for my post on this subject is this.....

Once back home after standing in line at the MD's office for 15 minutes, and people standing behind me for those 15 minutes. I looked into the mirror and see that I had pulled my button up tailored shirt on backwards with seams on the outside AND a white label against a black shirt staring at everyone behind me.....


Will this renewed I171H nightmare end soon??

Awww honey, you may remember me posting a few months ago that same thing happened to me. See you're already prepared for being a mommy when it may happen again.

Hope everything works out and gets in!

Too funny! Sounds like you're preparing for motherhood! :o)

Hope your updates are done soon and that you don't need to do them again!!

It does make for good blogging though, doesn't it? :o)
