1 month anniversary and moggy complications
Yesterday marked one month of being Mrs P. I'm pleased to say we've hardly argued but spending 13 days of that on separate continents may have helped somewhat...
We're really starting to get into everything we need to do now and it is COMPLICATED with a capital...well, all of it. So the things we've investigated this time are: getting me a bank account over in the US, getting myself and my daughter to the US, getting our cat to the US.
We're going to talk to someone at the bank sometime this week, the same day I get a phone to use over there (well, here since I'm visiting the US right now - this could get confuzzling!) so we can find out IF I can have a bank account (pretty sure I can) and HOW to get one (still drawing a blank on this one).
As for getting the moggy over here...as soon as I think I've figured out how to do it, I read something that contradicts everything I'd figured out. Right now, a CAT-apult and a parachute seems to be the easiest, cheapest, least hassle way to do it but we'll see how that turns out later.
On the surface, I've planned the act of physically moving myself, my daughter and our relevant belongings over here so that's done. We just need the bit of paper that says we're allowed to move more permanently. I say more permanently because I'm pretty sure we need some more bits of paper once we're in the country but my husband has been dealing with it so I really have no idea other than what he's told me and what I can make of the gibberish...er, I mean government websites.
With that, it's lunchtime. Toodle-pip!
