We received notification for more fingerprinting with the INS. Shit, they aren't called that anymore. They are USCIS or something like that. Anyway, the lawyers say that it could be that they (USCIS) are "close to beginning the adjudication of your application for adjustment of status."

Main Entry: ad·ju·di·ca·tion
Pronunciation: &-"jü-di-'kA-sh&n
Function: noun
Etymology: French or Late Latin; French, from Late Latin adjudicatio, from Latin adjudicare
1 : the act or process of adjudicating

Main Entry: ad·ju·di·cate
Pronunciation: &-'jü-di-"kAt
Function: verb
Inflected Form(s): -cat·ed; -cat·ing
transitive senses : to settle judicially

Does this mean we will finally get our green cards?? Or will the process be another year or so? So far we are nearly 5 years into the process. And people wonder why "aliens" can be in the States for years and years and never become citizens. It takes so long! Once we have our green cards we have another 5 years before we can apply for citizenship which could take 2 years or more! I'll be so old by the time we are citizens.

Laurie had her baby today - a boy named Colton. I cannot wait to see him. She should be home tomorrow. We'll have to check with her to set up a schedule for meals for her.

TMI ALERT Andrea had to go to the hospital today because she passed part of the placenta that was left in her. :(

I asked the swim nazi today if I could move Dex into the 10am class and she said "He's not good enough". LOL It is true I guess but I am getting tired of going there two times in one day. I will sign the kids up for swimming for the next session (which runs thru the end of May) then no more unless they are back-to-back sessions. Guess I should work on Dex and his swimming ability.
