THE Interview

THE Interview 12/7/00 11:08 pm It went ok. Everyone seems to say they are there until 3 or 4 in the afternoon. I was out before noon, with the visa. Maybe they have changed the process. I had the interview and he said it would be an hour while they added the visa to my passport, it wasn’t. We were out of there in record time. 🙂 I went with my Mom. We stayed at the TravelLodge. It was small in a cute way but there were cobwebs on the ceiling, the shower curtain was useless and the first room … Read more

Night Before Rant Part 2

Night Before Rant Part 2 12/4/00 2:23 am *sigh* If I can just live through this week I will be officially married next week. One week from now I will be on the other side of the border trying to force, coerce and whatever else it takes to get Todd to go to the doctors for a check up. Really, its only fair. He doesnt want to go and is trying to put it off till after the honeymoon. Meanwhile I have been governmentally inspected, physically and personally. Its his turn, dammit! 🙂 (A great deal of personal rant editted … Read more

Leaving for THE interview on Tuesday.

Leaving for THE interview on Tuesday. 12/4/00 2:22 am What have I forgotten, I can’t breathe, my head is killing me I’m sure its going to explode. Actually I’m feeling much better now. I had a killer headache all day today as I scurried around getting things. My Mother had the idea that I could send in the checklist before actually having all the bits and pieces together. Its ok, I have everything but the $45 US now. But I have barely started packing and we plan to leave for the border the day after I get back from Montreal. … Read more

Yet Another Moment of Panic

Yet Another Moment of Panic 11/24/00 3:31 am I can’t remember just what was on the checklist I mailed back to the consulate and I wasn’t smart enough to keep a copy. I just suddenly realized I only have about 2 weeks to get everything loaded, stamped, sealed and etc. I knew it was 2 weeks I just didn’t clue into how soon 2 weeks is coming up. 🙂 Also, we may be crossing at Windsor early in the morning. 7:am to 8:am. Is this a good time? I had a bad experience crossing there using the bridge. Now I … Read more

Wait for Interview

Wait for Interview 11/19/00 10:18 pm I sent in the checklist a week ago. How long does it usually take to hear back from Montreal? I was really hoping to have the interview and border crossing done this month. Not that I’m sure I want a December wedding or to miss all the holidays here with everyone I know. 🙁 Won’t it be so nice when all this is over and we can live like real human beings again. 🙂 I also feel trapped by this. I’ve felt that way since March though. It does seem that if I can … Read more

Re: Medical Experience

Re: Medical Experience 11/2/00 11:59 pm My medical was in Toronto and cost $195. This included extra for the Mumps shot. (I also got sick right after that, not sure it was mumps though). For Toronto there was a new doctor’s office listed. New from the information I have found on websites at least. I went to the new place and really lucked out. A family had cancelled so I didn’t have to wait for thing. A man came along later but by then I was nearly done. This new place is _right_ beside the king subway station in Toronto. … Read more

Between Checklist and Interview

Between Checklist and Interview 11/2/00 10:45 pm How long does it seem to take before you get the notice about the interview and do they schedule them right away or is this going to be another 4 or so months of waiting? I just got back Todd’s financial stuff so I am all ready to send in the checklist. Just need to get the RCMP report and that other picture. Both of those can be done in one day. Do they take fingerprints at the RCMP? It does bother me that we are treated like criminals. Well, a lot bothers … Read more

First NOA Received

First NOA Received 6/12/00 7:30 pm When I got home from work this evening, I found a letter from the DOJ waiting in the box. It was our first NOA, dated June 7th. That’s 12 days after mailing to the Nebraska center for timeline watchers. Todd Read more of these old posts – Our Adventures with the Fiancé Visa (2000 – 2002)
