Hi Tiger,

I already congratulated you on the May Thread, but thought that I would congratulate you here on your home thread.

Again, my very best wishes for you and your family on your move down under.

About bloody time, you got your butt out of NA and moved to where all the fun and action will be LOL.

Glad you won't have to endure another Wisconsin winter, I know I am glad to be leaving it all behind.

Like I said before the month will flyby and soon you will be starting your new life down under.

Again huge congrats to you and your family, enjoy the celebrations.

You made my Thursday morning.

Cheers

Karen

Home? Well, we still own it, equity and all, and the rent is covering the mortgage and letting costs. Ain't gonna do no buying in Australia for a bit.

So you can follow a lot of the good advice and still emigrate.

Oh, and congrats on the meds, tiger!

Cheers

OK, so we're all doing the opposite - EXCEPT BEN!!!

Way to go, BEN!!!

Wow, Karen, Great to hear from you!!!

How are things coming with the house. The last news I heard was there were offers but you weren't accepting them. Did someone accept a counter offer?

We are going to get out JUST IN TIME!!! We really didn't want to go through another Wisconsin Winter so made the decision to move forward - even without the visa in place. It turned out fine, but it was a tense few weeks.

WOO HOO!!! You leave in under 1 week! 4 days!

We'll be arriving in November. We're going to be "neighbors" again - but this time in the same country!!

Good luck to you!

Catherine

Lisa -

I think I just hit it at the right time. If I hadn't gotten up in the night, it could be another 3 weeks. I think he had just sent me that email, I woke up and responded while he was still looking at our file.

I had actually hoped that we'd go straight to grant - without even knowing we had a CO - but this was way more exciting.

Of course I'm going to have a tough time staying focused today!

Yours will come soon! Hang in there!

Catherine


Good luck VISA Karma sent!

BTW, why haven't you updated BEupdate yet? Somebody has to give you a hard time about that one, thought it might as well be me! Enjoy going to yellow, you waited long enough for it!

TIGER, WELCOME TO VISALAND!!!!!!!!!!

Lilsweets -

I forgot all about BEUpdate!

It's quite satisfying to see it "go yellow"! Truly a confirmation!!

Will you take over the Unofficial Update?
