A Better Writer

Geoff says the only way I’m going to get better at writing is to do it often. So I signed up for NaBloPoMo, forcing me to post every day for a month. Overwhelming? A little. But hopefully I will reap a benefit from it.

Let’s get personal. I’ve been feeling like I’m living in limbo. With two years left on the visa, it’s go time on seeing if a green card is going to happen. When we tell people about our journey, our friends find it confusing that two productive, law abiding people would have such a hard time becoming citizens. Yeah, how do you think we feel?! Longevity and having American-born children mean nothing to the process.

Though my heart longs to be close to my family, I truly feel that we were meant to live in the U.S. So much of our life happened here. Not to say I’m completely opposed to moving back to Canada. I’m just not sure after 10 years that I could adjust to a country I don’t feel is home anymore.

Just as the move to America was lead by going where the science/job is, the same is true now. We will go where there is a job.

Let’s wait and see what the future holds….

…..I hate waiting.
