The above is a screenshot from uscis.gov that I took. I forgot to update the blog and that made me feel bad. So- as you can see, the US Gov is now in charge of my relationship. That both terrifies me and makes me happy- because it means we’re one step closer to being together.
Today, July 1st, is 12 days away from 1 month of turning them in. According to USCIS website info, I should have some sort of information within 5 months. I’m desperately hoping it’s good information and not the dragged out sort, or worse, being told we’re rejected. I’m pretty sure if that happens, I’m going to need someone to rent me a bouncy room, I’ll lose my damned mind.
Mark and I are still working on plans that we can tentatively make-what we want in a wedding, who we want. Those we can do without set plans, because we obviously don’t have a date nor the money put aside for ceremony. Any funds he has, he’ll probably end up exhausting when he moves over here.
I want him here so badly it hurts, and I’m pretty sure the feeling is mutual. I’m sure I’m driving/have driven friends nuts, but it’s hard having an other half so far away that when there’s a date night or someone talks about their dates, you can’t say “Oh that sounds fun, Mark and I did a date too and it was …”. I have nothing to offer. My dates are nights online watching Anime or a comedian. They’re unique dates, that’s for sure, but not the ones we want. Mark and I want to go walking together, go out to movies and to game nights- and right now, that’s simply not possible.
I can’t wait. After 10 years of being together and getting 2 dates that were just us- I can’t wait to have more when he’s here. I can’t wait to hug my love, be able to reach and hold his hand and not feel like I’m missing half of me.
Does anyone have questions on the process? If you ask, I’ll tell you as I go along. If I can’t answer it, maybe Kiwi can.
