Bad, bad blogger

I feel like I've been a bad blogger lately. Forgive me. It's not that I don't have stuff to say, cause I do... it's just time is an issue it seems. Sigh. I can't believe how infrequently I've been posting... I'll have to remedy that. Soon. In other news:

I called DC again today. I knew it was too soon for a change in our status... but get this - that's why I called. I just wanted to know that we were exactly where I thought we were in the process. Pathetic, huh?! Saying that makes me feel like a bad mom. I just need one more week to catch up! (I'm hoping I also didn't just jinx myself and cause this step to take two months... because even though it doesn't sound it in this post - we DO want Spencer home!) Next week is truly insane from a work standpoint for both of us, and it was nice to hear that our packet was still at the agency. That means that nothing is happening this week that would effect (affect?! I can never remember...) next week. Yet. I'll be back to wanting things to happen next week though! But I won't lie... it was nice to have one moment where I didn't feel like I was hanging on for dear life.

So here's how the conversation went:

Operator: Visa Hotline, how can I help you!?

Me: Hi there! I just wanted to check on the status of a case.

O: OK - what's your case number?

Me: #############

O: The Visa Interview hasn't been scheduled yet, the packet is still at the agency, I'm sorry.

Me: Oh no! That's quite alright.... that's what I was expecting/hoping to hear.

O: Uh, really?! OK - glad I could help! Just one question... You're happy about this?!

Me: Yes, I'll be sad next week when I hear the same thing.

O: OOOOOKKKKKAAAAAAYYYYY... (thinking "clearly I have a weird one here")

Long story short... where do I sign up for the bad mom nominations?!

More [good stuff] soon! Now it's off to the hardware store for some painters tape!
