What a busy week
Thursday, September 07, 2006
Please forgive my first attempt at blogging. I'm already feeling inferior with no catchy title and can't be nearly as clever and witty as Steve is in his posts.

This week has been a busy one for us. Steve's been sick with a really really bad cold, please be sure and give him some get well wishes. It's really unusual for him to get sick but this cold has been horrible. I've also been really busy at work so haven't been able to take care of Mr. Sickly. I'm an IT project manager and had a software release over the long weekend (yeah I'm really popular with my team these days) so haven't had time to do much of anything.

Yes, we did finally get our apostilled marriage certificates back from Arizona. Let's just say the $20 version from California is more impressive than the $3 version from Arizona. Anyone else want to comment about their impression of their apostilles?

So the first version of our dossier is complete and made it to our agency today. So we're on our way but still waiting for our agency to get NGO registration and reaccreditation.

Congratulations to Elle and Captain Smartypants on their court date earlier this week. They're now a family of three!

    So sorry Steve is sick, I had a really bad cold too a couple weeks ago. At the time I thought I might not recover, but I actually did. I hope he is buch better now too. So glad you got your paper back. Now you know why CA charges so much, it is a lot better.
    I think you did a great job on the blog, but then of course I am your mother!!

    We had that issue for my dh letter of employment. His headquarters is in Texas so we had to get it apostilled there. We of course didn't find that out until NJ sec. of state sent those pages back to us. There's is a stamp where ours is a raised gold sticker. oooohhhh!
