Thia is what Booboo has been up to recently.
If you are still checking this every now and then, you know that I haven't been writing much these last months. I was going to say that I don't really know why, but really it's just that I just haven't felt like it. So I haven't.

I wasn't feeling inspired because it seemed like my life was in a holding pattern of uncertainty, which it was, really, because I spent seven months waiting. Waiting for a decision to be made by somebody whom I have never met that would determine my (and S's) future. For such a stagnant action, it is surprising how emotionally draining waiting can be. And I didn't want to talk about any of it publicly until it was all over.

But now I can say it: After seven months of waiting, I am now a permanent resident of Canada. And it feels absolutely freeing to know with certainty that I am allowed to live here in Canada with my husband forever.

PS. And I plan to post more regularly about all that has been happening recently.
PPS. Isn't Booboo the cutest (and most flexible!) cat ever? But, of course, I am quite biased...


  1. Oh, the BIGGEST of congratulations!!!

    That is such a huge relief.

  2. Congratulations!! It's so frustrating and scary to turn your life over to an opaque and (seemingly) unfeeling bureaucracy -- the waiting is, indeed, killer. But hooray for the happy outcome! :-)

  3. Hey! Congratulations!! I am SO happy for you!! Must be such a relief.

  4. I am so happy for you and had been wondering--so thanks for the update!

  5. Yey! SO excited for you and so pleased to see you back here :)

  6. Thanks Kim L, Allison, and fiona lynne! :)
