Today I got in touch with the Dept. of Homeland Security and there was a hold up on a crucial document allowing me to bring the baby back into the country. I was on the phone and e-mail for hours trying to get it all straight. Tomorrow, I have to leave school early, go downtown to my home study agency AND the Immigration Dept. to hand deliver documents ... just to get it all resolved ... here at the last minute!! It was so touch and go that I felt all day like the blood had left my body!
THEN ... I traced my Fed Ex package sent from the Consulate of Kazakhstan that contained my passport AND newly acquired VISA (that gets me into Kaz) AND they claim they delivered it last FRIDAY! Well, I never got it ... so again, I was freaking out!!!!!!! I came home and began to tear my house apart! I FOUND IT!!! I FOUND IT!!! My cleaning lady must have accepted it last Friday and she stuck it under a decorative book on a table when you walk in my front door AND I NEVER SAW IT!!!!!!!! I poured a glass of wine, then two, and I'm on my third ... I think I'll just drink out of the bottle ... what do you think?
Oh, Lord ... just get me on that plane!!
