Our Adventures with the Fiancé Visa (2000 – 2002)

Our Adventures with the Fiancé Visa  was a blog I kept (beginning in about the year 2000 and ending in 2002) while my husband and I were going through the fiancé Visa process. I’m Canadian, he is from the US and now we are divorced and I’m back in Canada and he is still in the US. Anyway, I am keeping these old posts – just moved them to a new location. 

Some of these were originally written by my husband, Todd. He wrote his name at the end of the post. I have included them because they were part of the old blog I copied all of this from. Part of the adventure. 

Following is the checklist:

  • Petition sent.
  • Medical Appt.
  • Consulate Interview.
  • We’re married.
  • EAD
  • Advanced Parole
  • Fingerprinting

The following are from the CanAm Couples Club where Todd and I have found great advice and support for our adventure.

Note: The CanAm Couples Club was part of Yahoo Groups. I can’t find it (at least not still active) so I am not giving the link. 

This list of posts is in reverse order. Start from the bottom if you want to read them chronologically.

Reading (even skimming it) has made me feel sad. I can still clearly remember all the emotions that went along with this adventure in my life. It didn’t end the way I thought it would, the way I wanted it to or expected. But, I’m still going, having adventures and finding new things to learn and do. 

Email Lists I Don't Need

Publishing – Canadians who publish on the Internet. Whether you’re an ezine publisher, a blogger or someone who just likes to keep their presence on the web, this is the place to get together. Free ideas: share thoughts, experiences and plot out eventual Canadian World Domination through web publishing.

Publisher – Creative publishing on the Internet.

They may yet die. But, I was poking around on Yahoo Groups and noticed no one has made (had made) a group using ‘publishing’ or ‘publisher’. So, due to mental problems currently beyond my control, I had to start them.

I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them now. They really don’t fit into my plans and I want another Yahoo list about as much as I want to have turtles in my bed. (Not the chocolate kind, though they are my Mother’s favourites).

Yahoo! Groups : circle-of-castalia

Yahoo! Groups : circle-of-castalia: “Visual Expressions of Ontario’s Pagan Community.

Circle of Castalia is a new collection of Pagans Visual Artists within Ontario. We’ve formed this guild in order to give us a place to share our artwork and our techniques with one another. We welcome all artistic members of the pagan communtiy to come in to chat and upload their art. We’re always cooking up new projects to challange one another! “

I like the sound of this one. I wonder if they consider some ASCII art and the bit of writing I still do (about Paganism) enough to merit joining?
