We mailed out all the paperwork for Vilay’s greencard and work authorization. It should arrive at the lockbox of the immigration service department sometime within the next few days. It is such a relief to have it out of our hands. We can only wait now.
The second announcement is I have a job! Actually, I have two part-time jobs as of today. Neither of the jobs pay much. The thing is I don’t want to get into a “real” job since we are planning on moving in the next three months. I don’t like the idea of being trained at a new job and then leaving them high and dry. One of my jobs is seasonal help and it is alot of fun. The other job is with a great company which I think could grow into something better if we did happen to stay in Ohio. Both of the companies I am working for are in retail. So, it is fair to say that neither employer will be heart broken to see me go since high turnover is a fact of life in retail. As long as I am a good worker and show up on time every day that I am scheduled I think they will be happy to have had me help get them through the Christmas season. You know the one with all the jolly and cheerful people? Ha! Not when they are shopping. I don’t care. I will have enough Christmas cheer for everyone.
I am actually looking forward to all the loud Christmas music in all the retail stores. However, I think after a couple weeks of constantly listening to insanely loud and cheery Christmas music I will change my mind and begin having the urge to break all the speakers in the stores. After all…it’s all about moderation.
