Busy and Happy

Well, school has started again, immigration is behind us, work has picked up, and we’re hopefully getting some fall weather soon. Getting busy but I’m really happy about it. I wish I could be joining my mom in France next week but maybe next spring. Did I mention the cats are finally getting along? It makes things a heck of a lot nicer around here. But seriously, how can I not be happy after getting to the other side of the immigration ordeal with a positive outcome? 84 days from submission too.

We’ve started planning our trip to Victoria/Vancouver in October since Mike can leave the country (legally). He hasn’t seen his family since last year and I’m looking forward to seeing the area he grew up in and getting to know his family. We’re either going to fly into Seattle or Vancouver and take the ferry to Victoria.

Thankfully I’m only taking one class this fall and then plan is to fit the trip in-between my  class time. My class this semester – Dairy Production. It involves two lectures a week and a trip out to the dairy unit to see the cows and production first hand. The class coordinator has been trying to get me to take it for a long time and I’m excited it’s finally fitting into my schedule. We’re a week in and  so far it’s been really interesting. We spent yesterday afternoon out at the dairy barn getting a tour and seeing the life cycle of the dairy cow (including babies!!).

Be back soon

Thought I left again huh? Not quite the case.Although school is over, life has picked up and I’ve been spending all my free time getting ready for our interview on Friday. I plan on writing a blog post on this and discussing the whole process once it’s over and answer questions. We spent Monday getting us both suitable clothes to wear and planning our day for Friday. Hopefully in 48 hours we’ll have an answer and it’ll be a good one. Wish us luck!
