Well alot to talk about...

First of all:


Ok no more screaming, So, I found an online job and start on Monday. It is a full time job teaching English. The site is called Open English , I know that those of you who are in Mexico have seen this commercial on TV. I saw it about 3 weeks ago and thought, I would check to see if they were hiring and guess what? They were, obviously! LOL Well, for those of you who are looking for an internet job, (Lisa from One Country to Another, you come in mind) this might be a good place to start. I went through training and a certification process this week and found out yesterday, I got the job. I have never cried about getting a job but, this time, I cried my eyes out. I have been praying I would find a job I could do at home as you all know and this is perfect so, if I decide to go back and forth between here and the States, I can still work and just travel on my days off so, this will enable me to travel and even if when I get pregnant, I can work all the way up until delivery and start back really soon after because, I will be working from home!!! I am so happy I got this job, it is a life saver for me right now.
I could go on and on about how this job has saved me but, that will bore you, it would me!

So, now on to my other problem, moving to the States or staying here. We have been talking and have decided, I will go after I get pregnant, it is very important that I get pregnant within a year and I have to be here to do it! No pun intended! LOL Anyway, we hope I am pregnant by June or July so, we can get to Georgia before school starts. Our plan is for me to return a few weeks before he has to go to Ciudad Juarez for his visa appointment (when? I don't know) and I will stay until we have finished the Visa and waiver appointments.

As for the baby, Miguel is dead against me having him or her here in Mexico but, I really want him at the birth. He will already miss out on a lot by us being separated during my pregnancy so, I definitely want him at the birth. Hopefully, his waiver will be one of the quickly approved ones.

I am kind of worried about having the baby here because, I had Toxemia with Jeni and Nando. When I had Jeni, her heart rate dropped to 65 while I was pushing and they had to pull her out with the vacuum and with nando, I was in labor for 3 days and had to have a csection so, I am sort of expecting complications since, I have never had an uncomplicated pregnancy, labor, and delivery. I am hoping for a very easy pregnancy, labor, and birth. I would love a water birth! So, we have sort of made a deal, well, I said this is what I am going to do and he really didn't have much choice! I told him that, if I have no complications, I will return here when I am 7-1/2 to 8 months pregnant to have the baby here but, if I am having high blood pressure or any other complications, I will have the baby in Georgia and come here as soon as I can. I would rather go to the border and have the baby in Texas but, I am having trouble on getting information about how to have the baby and come back across the border when I get out of the hospital. That in my opinion would be an awesome compromise, Miguel would get his way, the baby would be born in the US and we would have easy access to any immediate specialized medical care if needed and I would know that Miguel would get to see his baby at a couple of days old at the most. Though he wouldn't be able to be there for the birth, he would be there during the very important first few days. Anybody with information on this, PLEASE email me.

As for the immigration process, the FOIA was sent off on Wednesday and they should have gotten it today so, I hope the are efficient and I get it back very soon. We will be mail off the I-130 within 2 weeks to at least get the process going. We are waiting on affidavits from family and friends to send in with it and that is why we are waiting.
I have started investigating for the hardship waiver so, any advice on this is also, greatly appreciated!! This is the most difficult thing I have ever written in my life!!! I will try to do it on my own but, if I see I am having lots of trouble, we will then hire and attorney. I really don't want to have to because, we really can't afford to hire one. I will make that sacrafice some how if the time comes that we need one.

As for my issues with Miguel's family, well, they are still going at full blast. They seemed to pause it while I was recuperating from surgery but, this week, they have more than made up for it!!! I have never felt so unwanted in a place in my life. I was just telling Miguel tonight that, nobody has ever treated me like this before. I am scared that they will try to put ideas in Miguel's head when I am in the States because, when I was working last year and getting home at 10 they tried it. They would tell him that there was no way I was still working and that surely I was out doing something I wasn't supposed to be!! He didn't believe them but, I am worried that with me there and him here, they might have just a little more of a chance to do what they tried. I have talked to him and he said that he doesn't care what they say, he has seen how they are with me and know what they are capable of. So, I do not need to worry about that, I will have enough to worry about then. I will be pregnant, dealing with the kids stuff, working, and dealing with the immigration stuff so, they had better hope they don't try to interfere with our relationship. As stressed as I will be and with my hormones raging, I just might open up a can of some good ol' Georgian whoop ass on them!!!!

Well, have a great weekend all!!!

  1. LOl you make me laugh Stephanie, I think they deserve that ass whooping either way. Thank you for looking out for me!! I have seen those comercials and will for sure be looking into it.
    My computer has been acting up though and I wil be buying another one on my next trip back to the states so I am thinking about starting something then.
    I would want to be here with my hubby too while prego but from what it sounds like I can understand why he wants you to have the baby in the states. You should go check out Lindy's page over at Gringa- n Mexico. I know she drove over the border to have the baby and I believe went back a few days later with her mom or family. I am sure she will be able to give you a lot of advice.
    I will be praying for you and your family during the immigration process. Hoping everything goes well for you guys. Take care.
