Lucky at last!
I got my official ID card to day. A little sooner than expected. Amazing!
I no longer need to carry my passport. I can use my Visa card and open a checking account . . . a legal alien at last!
Wife had a doctor appointment yesterday. Copay was $20. No more insurance policy payments. And you can drink the water! Tastes good and is non toxic.
Best of all . . . Our ship has come in! Or almost in - somewhere in Sweden, Gothenburg I guess. With a bit more luck it will be at our place in two more days. Then the fun begins, a week or so of madness, then life can resume as close to normal as it gets.
