I-129F Petition for Fiance Visa (K-1)

I finally started filling out a bunch of stuff today.
  • I-129F forms (including attached paper to expand on how we met)
  • Cover letter
  • Both Isaac and I did G-325A (which is 4 pages for each of us and all four pages are the EXACT SAME THINGS)
  • Letter of intent to marry within 90 days of Isaac's entry to the US (both Isaac and I had to do these, and sign)
  • Printed out pictures of us together
  • Printed out some old emails to show ongoing relationship
What we need to do:
  • Get (recent) passport style photos taken of both of us.
  • Copy birth certificate
  • Copy his old plane tickets
  • Get the $455 to file the petition

Oy. But at least we're getting somewhere.

BlogTV was crap...

I'm angry/annoyed because I planned for a show and I ended up spending the whole time annoyed. Some reason the internet keeps disconnecting from my laptop but in the office the chat on BlogTV wouldn't even load! Plus people kept saying it was cutting out. Another thing is some reason in the office I can't even hear other people's chats even though they aren't muted, the volume is up, and I can hear other things (like that annoying ad they play when you enter their room).
So I am going to something else, if I ever get the energy back to do a show some day. This just really bothered me! ANYWAYS, blogtv is no more (for now). If I go live again it will be at UStream.

My niece keeps forwarding weird quizzes to my email! Ahh!

I'm not sure what I wanted to talk about here. Just felt like doing a blog! Alrighty then we'll see where this goes...
I guess I'll just write down the first thoughts in my head:
  • Those mugs over there *points* are really cool.
  • My budgies are funny. I can't wait to see Peter grow up, he's still a baby.
  • I bit the left side of my tongue and it hurts.
  • I'm going to try to stay up really late tonight (and sleep in late in the morning) because I have to work starting 10 PM tomorrow night and I don't want to be tired by then.
  • I am now going to watch ArtieTSMITW's new video.
  • After video thoughts: Aww poor kid! Haha!
  • I wonder if Isaac is sleeping yet. Insomniac!!!
  • I saw a book on insomnia in the store today and skimmed through it but it was all stuff I heard before.
  • I also saw a bunch of John Green books so I flipped through those to see if there were any nerdfighters around here leaving notes.
  • No, there weren't.
  • I don't know why I continue to go to stores when I can't spend my money. I think it's just... something to do.
  • I should probably put the birds to bed soon (cover their cage).
  • I just imagined putting my birds in a little bed and tucking them in under covers, it was cute.
  • I need to remember to do laundry tomorrow.
  • I think tea is gross with milk.
  • I wonder when I'm going to get a chance to go to England.
  • I remember when my friend and I (when we were about 9) decided to move to London together after college. We thought that if we did, we would somehow automatically become friends with the Spice Girls.
  • Isaac and I planned that when I DO get to go over there, we will be like typical tourists of London and go on a double decker bus. Woo!
  • I love my British man.
  • This was a lame idea...
Ok that was fun!
Alright I'm going to watch a movie that just arrived in the mail even though I don't know what it is. Fun!
Wish me luck staying up late tonight! I've been having a harder time doing that lately unless I'm sick...
And I'll (maybe) see some of you on Friday at BlogTV!!!

Part II of Haha what the heck?

Ok so I just read this comment left by Christina on my last blog:
I have had a similar situation happen to me once, and I am willing to bet I know what happend!
There is this website you can go to... where you can type in ANY number and ANY name and This computer thing will call the phone number you enter and The caller I.D. will show up as whoever the fuck you want it to show up as. My friend tried this on me once and She later confessed that she had done it. Go to the site and check it out for yourself, I am willing to bet someone found out who he was and Decided to fuck with your life.
some people have no lives."

There is a possibility this happened. If that is the case than I must say: Leave that 'poor' guy alone. He clearly can't take a joke, whatever it was that happened.

Haha what the heck?

If anyone on here somehow managed to track down who my ex is, please just confess now.
I just got this message from him on MySpace:
"Next time I get a call from you at 4 in the morning, you will have the police at your house to deal with. Grow up."
Now imagine YOU got a message like this.... WHEN YOU NEVER CALLED IN THE FIRST PLACE.
It's so strange being accused of something and when the person sounds so sure of what they are accusing you of. So very strange. And random.
I almost wish he WOULD have just contacted the police to begin with. I mean, if he did he would be proven wrong and this would be over. Though it would piss me off to be woken up that early by the police for no reason at all.
I was just talking to my mom about it trying to theorize how or why he would think I called him. Did someone call him and say something about being me? Why would I call and say it was me? Did the phone number look like mine?
It's not like I even HAVE his number.
I won't be able to rest until I know what's going on here.

Could you go the rest of your life without smoking a cigarette?
Hell yes.

Were you happy when you woke up today?

No idea.

What were you doing at 9 this morning?

Of course.

This, for no good reason.

What were you doing at 7am this morning?

What time did you go to bed last night?
I fell asleep around 11:30-midnightish? I think. But I actually got in bed a lot earlier than that.

Where did you get the shirt/sweatshirt your wearing?
The store.

Sitting in the dark

I am tired but at the same time I don't want to go to bed.
I have no reason NOT to sleep. Just being a computer junky. I just keep going from website to website hoping there will be something interesting to look at but nothing yet....

I would like to thank K80Blog for making it so that I can no longer listen to Tiny Dancer without thinking, "Hold me closer Tony Danza!" I woke up to that song today on the radio and have had it stuck in my head all day. Danza version. Oh funny thing is that when my alarm went off (since it WAS 4 in the morning) I initially, while still in half-sleep state, thought that the alarm was just warning me that it was going to go off in another hour or two. It's a good thing I woke up and into reality before I turned it off and slept through work.
Oh dear early morning/late night work! You are amazing for my brain.

I had fun with BlogTV and I've scheduled to go on THIS FRIDAY at 2:15 PM PST/5:15 EST. I couldn't decide between 2 and 2:30 so I met in the middle.

I just realized I still had my alarm on for 4:20 even though I don't have to be up early tomorrow. I would have been pissed with myself if I woke up to the alarm in the morning. No alarm! PLEASE! I love waking up naturally...

Ok THAT'S IT! I'm going to log into the BowieChick MySpace (where I am bound to find plenty of surveys in the bulletins) and just do one of the first I see. That will be my next blog. No one will care about it BUT I'M BORED AND CRAZY AND RESTLESS!
The endish.

Mmmm pretzels

I randomly decided I wanted to make pretzels. So I did. It took ages and I didn't even start until almost 8 PM! I JUST finished 2.5 hours later but I really think it was worth it.
I used this recipe.
I love that website.
I already ate one and OMG it was delicious. :) I can't wait to try a cinnamon one tomorrow.
Pics or it didn't happen!


I only made four cinnamon and the rest are just butter with a little salt. I don't have the big chunky salt so regular will do.

Gooooooooooooooooooooooood stuff. :)

No I'm not high, thank you.

All my life I have gotten strangers telling me I look tired. Thank you! How nice of you. Most of the time when they ask this I had a wonderful amount of sleep! It's because of my dumb eyes. That simple. Ever since probably middle school or so I have been asked by many people if I am currently high. Many of them refuse to believe when I say no! I am not high! I was even asked recently when I was working at a local store by a guy that worked there. How can I take this as anything but an insult? Especially when I have never done any sort of drug and proud of it. And all based on what? My droopy/baggy eyes and my calmer/mellow nature? That's just me.

Sorry for that short rant there. I was just thinking about this and how much it bothers me. I didn't choose the way I look and I hate that it automatically makes people make all these assumptions about me.

I want my brain to calm down because I can't seem to relax tonight. I think it's because Isaac went to bed earlier today and I didn't get a chance to talk to him. Since it's pretty much part of my daily schedule to talk to him every night I think part of me is still expecting that and won't rest until I get a chance. It has been a long night and it's only 10.

Oh our water heater is leaking (again, it has done this before) and luckily I caught onto it before it got as bad as last time. Last time it happened it got a huge area of our living room all wet and pretty much ruined the carpet. This time I happened to walk by the area to get to a closet and felt a little dampness. Ugh. So no hot water for now.

I have been so lazy these last couple of days. Partly because I have just been not feeling well and also because... well I don't really have an excuse. I have been just pondering things more than anything and snuggling up to stay warm. I need sun and a nice walk. I also need Isaac...

I think I'm going to maybe watch tv or something. I wonder if anything is even on...

I'm ok but I have a painful hangnail

Happy 24th Birthday Isaac!

I ended up getting about 2 hours of sleep the night that I posted my last blog. Wasn't nice. I made it through work at least.
I can tell that I'm coming down with a cold and it really sucks. I feel kind of crappy because of that but I know the worse has yet to come!

I also really wanted to thank the kind people out there who helped by chipping in. It means a lot to us. You all know who you are. :)

Please, PLEASE, just let me sleep.

For a couple months now I will have many many random nights where I will be fine BEFORE bed but as soon as I try to sleep I start feeling a bit nauseous. I will try to ignore it and fall asleep but many times, the feeling of falling asleep makes me burst out of bed thinking I'm going to throw up... but I never do.
It normally just takes a few tries and I will fall asleep and wake up fine as though the nausea never happened.
But not tonight.
Tonight I was only able to sleep for about 30 minutes (at most!) and other than that, I've been just tossing and turning and constantly feeling like I'm about to barf. I got some water and an emergency bowl just in case but I really don't know if I will throw up. Now I'm sitting here and my stomach hurts but it's not the same as when I try falling asleep. I've been trying since 10! It's 2:48 now and I need to wake up in about 3 hours (at the latest) to go to work.
This really sucks.
Really really sucks.
I don't know what it is but come on I would like it to go away and I really would like some sleep.
I got tired of just lying there and jumping up every time my head starts to finally doze off so I came on here.
I am freezing right now too! Our house is so cold. I can't stay warm but EVERY time I bundle up just right and start to relax even a little, I just end up quickly getting up again feeling like I'm going to throw up!
I'm even trying sleeping sitting up which normally works but it isn't this time.
The night before I have to work pretty early. Go figure.

Worried about Peter...

Peter really scared me. I was in tears because I already really love that budgie...
So he was out of his cage and on my arm and then he suddenly decided he felt like flying. His wings are clipped so when he tries to fly he doesn't get very far and he hasn't quite mastered... landing.
So he landed hard. I don't know exactly HOW he landed but I looked at him right after and he had his wings out and was kind of on his chest.
I freaked out and quickly tried to help him up.... but he wouldn't stand up. He seems to be lying on his chest. There he was in my hand being really weird and scaring the crap out of me looking like he was struggling to get up but he couldn't seem to be able to! Next thing you know, he stands in my hand. Then he shook out his feathers and acted as though nothing happened. He began to even look like he was about to fly again but I couldn't let him do that so I lightly clasped my hand over his wings. After a moment of trying to observe him (he seemed like his normal self) I decided to put him back in his cage. He seems normal now but you can never be sure...
I put a blanket on part of his cage and keep checking in and he is acting completely like nothing ever happened. I'm scared though! According to my book, loss of balance and inability to get up could be a sign of a concussion.
I really love this guy. He's so young too. I really hope he's ok!
Something tells me I will have a hard time sleeping tonight. I'm going to be checking in on him a lot.

Money money money....

It's hard not to think about it right now.
Isaac and I may have to end up sacrificing seeing each other AT ALL in 2009. I keep thinking about this and we have all the immigration fees to pay for and then the actual marriage (even if we get married in the simplest way) and then saving up for being able to actually leave my parents' house. How do we include travel into this?
I already miss him. Even though I get to talk to him on webcam almost EVERY DAY I still miss him. It's hard when you are restricted to just sitting at the computer and you can't do stuff together. I could try taking my laptop on a walk but that wouldn't be very fun.
I'm trying so hard to just remove the idea of buying anything for fun at all in 2009. I will try to only buy what I NEED because I can't see how anything will work out otherwise. BTW, dollar store FTW.
Long distance relationships are expensive.

AND the British Pound is no longer worth as much more than the US dollar than is used to be! It was at one point almost TWICE as much but he sent me 200 pounds recently and it only was 280something/290 or so. Can you believe it??

I would seriously be able to deal with being basically penniless if Isaac lived here with me now. Think of how easy it would be! But I shouldn't think that way. We have what we have and we will get through it some how. It's just going to be very hard...
