Looking like a long week...

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

You know those weeks where you have a to-do list that's a mile long, and each day you feel like you are getting no where on it?
I think it's going to be one of those weeks.
I don't know if it's because we were out of town all weekend and now I'm playing catch up or what. Or perhaps starting a business and trying to get ready to move to another country at the same time is finally starting to catch up with me.
I went in to apply for my no-fee passport last week, only to find out that I have to get medically cleared before I can be issued the passport. So now we have another appointment next week for me to get medical clearance. Then once I receive my no-fee passport I can apply for my regular tourist passport (and I'm sure by that time we will have to pay to get it expedited so that I will have it before we leave). Getting military things accomplished can be so frustrating sometimes. BUT it's all worth it, and I am still extremely excited.
We were supposed to go to North Carolina this weekend to visit some of my girlfriends (and explore Wilmington), but things happened and plans have changed. Since we are unable to go this weekend, and Jake still has Friday off, we decided to spend the day in Savannah. Neither of us has ever been, and it's the one place in Georgia that I have really wanted to visit. Hopefully the weather will stay nice, and we will get to enjoy a sunny day in Savannah :)
Of course now that I have said this, something will surely happen that will prevent us from going.
I'm off to make some chicken tacos for dinner, and then hopefully tackle a bit more of my to-do list!


  1. I know how you feel! We just came back from our trip and I just spent the whole day simply going through and answering 500 emails I got in 2 days.
    So instead of spending tomorrow catching up I have a mid day appointment which will turn into a waste of a day. So yeah I hear ya on that one.

  2. I don't think you need to wait on anything to get your regular passport going. I think I actually got that one first. Then once you get your no fee passport in, you have to turn it right back in and send it to get the visa you need. That usually takes about 2 weeks I think. I would look into it though, I just did this all a year ago and I didn't have to wait on anything to get my tourist passport. Good news..my family just applied for theirs because they are coming to visit soon and they said they got it back in 2 weeks, so fingers crossed!
