We FINALY went to our local Homeland security office today and got officialy fingerprinted! We had to take Charles with us so that was fun...but not so much. (for any new readers, that is the little guy I watch everyday) Anyway, I fed him lunch right before we left for our appointment so he would be full and happy. He ate homemade chicken strips, green beans, some yogurt and juice. One might think that that would fill such a little guy up...Nope. As soon as we got to the office he want to leave the office and run down the hall wherever his little legs would take him. But of course I have to stay in the office and listen for my number to be called- not to mention the place is laden with security so I felt a little wierd about him wandering the very official halls. Thank the Lord I have a Mary Poppins type purse that was filled with food and other random "necessities". The only thing that would keep him somewhat quiet and in "our" office was a banana (or 2) a bowl of applesauce, a bag of fruit snacks, The Little Mirmaid (which was playing for our viewing enjoyment in black and white) and a toy motorcycle that saved the day.
Anyhoo, that was our fascinating time at fingerprint headquarters. Please Lord please let them have been OK so we don't have to re-do them....I would probably cry. We are so close to being in the "waiting" club and any hangups now would crush this little spirit! Oh, and also pease Lord please let our I-171H come super duper quick. Please!
