I Got My Visa!

On Wednesday the German gov't said I can stay. So I am now an official Resident Alien. Hooray! And the little card really is green!

I landed in Germany for the first time 21 years ago today. Who ever would have thought that exactly 21 years later I would be settling in....again. You just never really know where life is going to take you. Dec 5th, 1987 was also the day I met Dave and Nena. Thanks to both of you for 21 years of friendship. I love you bunches. Nikki is so looking forward to seeing you next week and introducing you to her tall handsome German.

Oo, excellent! The first time I read that, I thought it said that they'd decided you couldn't stay, and I was like, oh no! But then I read it again and discovered that it was good news after all :)

I'm so glad you guys are having a good time over there and getting to spend a lot of time together... have fun, and I miss you :)
