With my part of the paperwork that is.
Yesterday I brought my envelope to the post office, hoping that everything is filled out all right and Jack won't get a heart attack over the picture that I had to add.
But first off all I have to thank Fleur for translating some papers for me.
Fleur, you are wonderful and fast. Thank you!
All in all, this part was relatively easy for me, although I had to ask my parents their birth date and place. Which is kind of embarrassing, realizing that you aren't entirely sure about that part of your parents past. My Mom was sweet about it though.
After reading everything carefully, everything was pretty clear.
And finding that Fleur could do the translation of some of my Dutch papers made it even better.
Worst was the picture that had to be taken, it had to be US size...
And I had to take out all my earrings. Which, for the people who know me is more than just the two most people have, add the little ring in my nose to it, than you can imagine that I felt naked without it.
After some research on the net it became clear that I wouldn't have to go through too much trouble to find the right photographer. There is one in Groningen that does US size visa pictures. I was back home in 3 hours where I spent 45 minutes to get those earrings back in.
Anyway, I am done for now, my stuff is on its way to the US where Jack will add it to all the paperwork he has to get together. That is, if he still wants that after seeing the terrible picture, lol.
I wish they would allow you to smile on those.
No wonder those immigration people look like they are in a bad mood, I would be if I had to look at those depressing pictures all day.
