Son of a Motherless Goat

The bureaucratic nightmare continues. Today was the French consulate and I gotta say – a lot more pleasant, a LOT quicker and people were a lot nicer too. Was only there for one hour and it was mostly my fault it took so long. I blame hubby for this, before we got married I hardly spent any time in those places and had never been to the US consulate. Next we have to take care of hubby’s social security and medical insurance… I don’t think I have the strength…

Also all this is making me spend a lot money on clothes! Every time I have a few hours before work and end up shopping – what else would I do? Had lunch in a little tiny café, something called a Mexican sandwich, with avocado, tomatoes and pickles??? What’s Mexican about pickles? But the coffee was so good…

Can I go home and sleep now? Nope, gotta work for 8 hours… Okay then...

OH MAN, are you doing all this paperwork stuff before you even go to work?!?!?!? Oh man that sucks. I can't STAND doing stuff before work! Luckily I now work 8-4, so there's really isn't much I COULD do before work LOL

BUT when I used to work a later shift, yeah, HATED IT. Although I'm assuming you HAVE to do it before work coz there's no time AFTER.

WELL, AT LEAST YOU'RE GETTING LOTS OF CLOTHES! LOLOLOLOLOL!

Gah. Social Security. I pity you, I really do. What's the point? It will all be gone before we retire anyway. Yeah.

New clothes rawk!

yeah, social security here is a lot different, we get full health care and retirment - so it is worth it.
