Package arrived!

Ben just told me now that he was informed by USPS that our I-130 package finally arrived in Chicago. He thought it should have arrived by Monday, but he later found out that the lady who told him that didn't know what she was talking about and it would actually take longer. Oh well, I'm just happy it finally arrived. Now to just wait for the NOA1 to be sent.

In other news, I'm planning on visiting Ben tomorrow. I thought I would have a better chance at getting through US Customs if I went through the land border. Which is what I ended up doing. My dad and I will drive down to Plattsburgh tomorrow morning and I'll catch a flight at 12:45pm, connecting then in Boston, Chicago, and finally landing in Sioux Falls. I'm hoping nothing goes wrong at the border. I'm praying my dad doesn't mess anything up or the immigration officer doesn't ask too many questions.

If no post is put up tomorrow, then I made it through. If there is a post, it's not going to be a happy one. Keeping my fingers crossed that I make it through tomorrow and can finally get back together with my one and only love, even if it is only for a 7-week visit.



  1. Wow, I can't imagine what you went through. After reading this I consider myself so lucky that I could cross freely back n forth (Vancouver to Washington) while my visa was processing (CR1).

  2. Yeah, it was ridiculous. First time I got denied, it was fault. And I accept that. But the second time I got denied, yeah, the officer was a complete idiot and didn't know what the hell he was talking about. Thankfully, I'm the exception, most Canadians (like you) can cross freely.
