The start of the rest of my life.

Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow!

Tomorrow's the day, folks. My visa interview. Tomorrow I conclude a process that's taken more than a year to get through. Tomorrow I'll finally have an answer. Tomorrow I might finally know what's going to become of my life. That's not even an exaggeration. If they say yes, I get to leave in December and get married to the man I love. If they say no, we keep trying. Tomorrow I'll know.

And though I've been freaking out for...oh, well, since before he sent out the application (which works out to just about 14 months of complete mental agony), and this last week has been like an obstacle course through hell, I'm OK right now. I've spent the day filling out forms perfectly (I made sure I had extra extra copies in case I screwed up), organizing everything, sorting pictures, filing everything carefully into a big folder so I can pull out anything I need when they ask me for it. And I feel calm. I've done everything I'm supposed to do, and then some. And from everything I've read online, if you have all your documents and you don't act like a complete moron at the interview, it's almost impossible to get the visa denied. So I've determined to be calm and collected, relaxed, and just trust that everything will be alright.

So, here goes everything. I'll let you know tomorrow how it goes :)

Way to go Figs, it's a load of stress you've been under and you've handled it admirably. Stay strong and you will be rewarded! Best wishes! LH

Eeeeee! Congratulations Figs! I know I'm jumping the gun, but I'm really hoping this goes through. I also wish I had more fingers, so I could cross them for you, but meh, we'll work on that later.

Figgehlicious, you have always been my very favorite Pajiban (suck it, haters!) and I will be so very happy when you plant you feet on Republic of Texas soil.
Get through this and now that you have a bajillion people here who can't wait to hang out with you and make you feel even more at home.
GOT that?
Good.

I'm also fairly certain that I'll master the English language by then... dammit. Sorry.

Goog luck Figs. Here's hoping all go smoothly. Then you can start your application to move to Canada. Saskatchewan is just like Texas but with fewer guns.
