Comfortable routine....

Wow...it really has been a long time since I've posted anything. I can only attribute that to the fact that I have fully settled in here, and that my routine has become...comfortable. Well...as much as it can be, under the circumstances.

Not much changes...

I work all day as a nanny...I work at night as a bookkeeper...I drive to Vancouver and pretend I'm Canadian every weekend. I haven't spent a weekend in Seattle in over two months! I can't say that I really feel I'm missing anything. There simply isn't enough in Seattle to hold me here when, instead, I could be enjoying a few moments at Patrick's side. In the end...the draw of BC always proves to be the stronger and Friday evening finds me happily making my way North. That stretch of I-5 is all too familiar now. It's my weekly commute...from home(Patrick)...to work(Seattle).

My Permanent Residence Application is almost as good as sent. The end of next week will mark it's deliverance from my hands into the belly of the blue mailman. I can't really believe it. It's been such an intense process...truly the biggest undertaking of my life. At first, I was so incredibly overwhelmed. But I've learned to relax in regards to the whole thing. I'm hoping that it will be a fairly standard application. Something they process easily, without too much nit-picking. The evidence we've gathered proving the authenticity of our relationship is....overwhelming, to say the least. As Patrick says, if the person who processes my application has a heart, they'll issue my visa immediately.

I can only hope....

Speaking of evidence...thank you soooo much to everyone who took the time to write us the Statutory Declaration letters. I'm floored by their sincerity. Each letter is uniquely it's own, but perfectly corroborates our version of things. We couldn't have done better had we written them ourselves! You know who you are...and you know how much I love you for it. :)

Until next time...Dream well...
