Green Card Holder

Well Eduardo is now a proud green card holder, now called "permanent resident card" which I actually like better!  We had been waiting and waiting for the card.  We finally called to inquire and they told us it had indeed been delivered to our old address well over a month ago.  So I went to my mom's old house and they were nice and gave me the mail.  I was so excited to get the card!!  Now we don't have to worry about someone asking Eduardo "for his papers".  Lol.

Now he is busy studying for his driver's test.  It seriously feels like this process never ends!  But atleast it's all the exciting stuff now :)

Our New Life

Yet another WAY overdue blog post!  So much has happened since Eduardo's return.  It's been 1 month, 4 weeks since we were reunited in the United States as a family again :)

My biggest news is that we have been living in our very own apartment for the past 3 weeks now!!  It's been the greatest feeling ever.  This is the first time in almost 3 years since we have lived on our own, without either his family or mine and it's heavenly :)  I can hardly begin to even tell you how much freedom I feel we have now.

Eduardo works long hours, but that provides us a good paycheck and we are getting people and things paid off quickly.  We have our day-to-day stresses and issues that I will soon start writing about again, but overall things are wonderful.

Hubby received his Social Security Card 8 days after arriving and that has really helped.  We are yet to receive his Resident Card, but I'm working on finding out why it has not arrived.

We even got Eduardo's old car back.  His brother had taken over the payments thankfully when we left and he recently asked if we wanted it back so he could get a larger car for his family.  It makes me so happy just to think about hubby in his car.  He loves that car!!

Well those are my little updates for now and I hope to be around more :)  I'm having fun catching up on everyone else's blogs too!
