So Busy

      I have been at my new awesome job for almost 3 weeks. We are super busy with deadlines one minute. the next, it is really quiet. My job seems like the actual immigration process. One moment, you are running around trying to get everything you need for an application package. Then, you are just sitting waiting on USCIS. I love the job. I have my little moments of jealousy whens someone gets approved, but they are overridden by happiness for the clients. These people have been waiting so long on an approval that decides their future, and they deserve it so much. I know I shouldn't be jealous at all, but I can't help, but feel some. They have what I want so bad, their husband or wife coming home to them with a visa. I know one day soon it will be our turn. After the moment of jealousy passes, I am super excited for them and full of hope for us. Every approval is just one application closer to our approval.

     I did talk to the attorneys about me getting off to go spend Christmas with my husband. They told me yes, but I will need to be available to answer the phone some. I will be transferring the calls to my Skype number and basically taking messages and setting up appointments a few hours during the week.

      We have started the immigration process. Unfortunately, the I-130 processing time frame is 11 months at the moment. Hopefully, they can get them processed quicker, though.

       The kids are doing great in school. They are adjusting really well to being back in public school. Their grades started out a little low, but are getting back to the normal A's & B's they used to always get.

       I am so busy! I am working 2 jobs and going to school!! It is seriously exhausting, but t is the only option at this moment. I leave my house at 7:30 every morning, get home at 5:00 in the evening, study for a about 30 minutes to an hour, and start teaching English with the company I have been with for almost 2 years now. I try to work at most 5 hours on weekend days to give me time with the kids. Even with working 2 jobs, I am still broke. Immigration and supporting 2 households is expensive!! Miguel is working in Mexico, but as most of you know the Mexican salary is very low. I make more at one of my jobs in a day than he makes in a week working 50 hours. So, for us to be able to keep our house to have somewhere to go when we are there, I have to send him money. He tries to limit his spending and doesn't ask me for money, I send it to him because I know how expensive it was when we were there. I know that just the basics are more then what he makes. Some people will judge me for sending him money, but we do what is best for us.

      As for our relationship issues, we are working through them. Things are so much better now. I now feel confident that though we are separated by something that we wish we could change, our love and relationship is strong enough to make it. All it takes is communication and we have started communicating so much more and better.

     I will try to post again soon! I am so busy, it is hard to find time to.

EEEEEEEEKKKKKK!!!!!! I Got the Job!!!

        I am so happy right now! I am in school to be a paralegal. When I started last year, my goal was to work in immigration law.

       Well, I saw a posting Craigslist last week for an entry level paralegal at get this, an immigration law firm!! I sent in my resume and they called me in for an interview. They told me they would be making a decision yesterday. 6:00PM rolled around and no phone call so I thought I didn't get the job. Well, at around 6:45 I got the call!! She told me to be there Friday at 10:00AM!! I can't believe I actually got the job!!

       During my interview, they asked why immigration law. I told them about my husband. They asked me a few questions. Then, they told me they had the perfect defense plan for our case! I am super ecstatic!!

      The firm I am working for is Chavarro & Gorinshtyen

Back in the States

    At the beginning of July, I came back to Georgia. I actually came back to just buy a vehicle, but we got to talk about the kids and their education. The kids education was suffering. So, we had to make the difficult decision to move back to GA.

    I bought a new vehicle, well a new old vehicle. I only had $1300 so it was a cheap-o van. A 1999 Plymouth Voyager. Only 3 doors, but it gets me from point A to point B. I also decided to buy a van because of my IUI. I was a little worried to buy a car and get pregnant with twins or more. Well, the IUI did not work. Miguel and I were both very upset about it. I think we had the timing off. I normally ovulate 12-24 hours after I take the trigger shot, I had the actual insemination done 48 hours after I took the shot. So, 16 days later, we confirmed that we did not have a baby on the way. We decided that we will do 2 more IUIs with back to back insemination, one 12-18 hours after the shot and one 48 hours after the shot. If no baby by March, we will do IVF. I never thought trying to have a baby would be so hard. It is so depressing.

   Anyway, back to our current situation. We have been back here since July. We missed the fireworks due to rain, our first 4th back in 3 years! I was so mad, the kids were let down. It has been raining almost constantly since I got back.

   I found a basement apartment. It worked out great. My grandmother is engaged and has moved in with her fiance. He has a basement apartment and the tenants were being evicted due to loud parties. I asked him about it. He told me to look at it after they moved out. Well, we had to take out the carpet, it was destroyed. They had cats inside, and it looked like no litter pan. The stove and the sliding door frame was broken and part of the cabinets had been destroyed. He told me he would rent the basement apartment and the 2 bedrooms immediately at the top of the stairs. I only pay $200 a month for the rent. I have the concrete floor for now until he can get flooring put down, but I am used to that so no biggie for now.

    I plan to go for a couple of weeks in September, so I hope we can have a long talk about some things that have happened since I got back to the States. We have had some problems and the end result of our conversation will decide the fate of our marriage.

      I don't understand why Mexican women love to interfere with their brother's marriages to American women.

          Well, I have been a horrible blogger again. I am back in GA, but this time I am here to buy a vehicle. We sold our truck and I bought a minivan yesterday. It just seems more feasible to have a van where more people can fit. People are always trying to ride with us and we have no space. I hate for people to ride in the truck bed. Miguel's dad did once and we got a 400peso fine so that will not happen again. After paying bills and a few other things, we only had 2000USD to buy a vehicle so I bought a 99 Plymouth Voyager. I do plan to sell to soon and return to buy a newer one. It is not new, but looks good and runs good. That is the important part.

           We had our first IUI (intrauterine insemination) done this month. I am 10 dpiui (days past IUI) so I will be testing with a HPT tomorrow morning, btu I have blood tests on Wednesday. I am too impatient to wait for blood tests though. I am praying for 2 lines tomorrow. Please keep us in your prayers and I will update as soon as I have a chance.

           I plan on going back to Mexico on the 15th more or less. I can't wait to get back. I can honestly say, I miss Mexico. I have always missed my husband while here, but now I miss Mexico too. So that is a huge step forward!

           Well, nothing is really going on other than that so I will post an update to my IUI this week. 

           Have a great weekend!

My Brother's Angels..

A picture was taken at the scene of my brother's accident. In the picture, you can see 2 figures that look like angels. I believe 100% that they were his guardian angels coming to take him home to God. He has been gone for a month and this does not get any easier. I cry every time I think of my lil . I just wish I could have seen him 1 last time. RIP Lil Russ. We love you and miss you boy.

This is a zoomed in picture of the accident scene. Beside the police truck is one of the angels and over towards the woods behind the paramedics and police is the other angel.

The last picture I took of my brother. We were picking on him that day because he was mad. He was mad because we woke him up and if you see on the picture, it was 11AM!! 

RIP Lil Russ. We love you.

RIP Little Brother..

This is the hardest post I have ever had to make, but I have to do it for him.

On May 7, 1985 my little brother and sister entered this world. My brother Little Russ came first and 7 minutes late my sister Nicole.

My brother was a brat growing up as all brothers are. He used to get on my nerves so bad, but I love him to death.

On May 7, 2013 they turned 28 years old. On May 9, 2013 at 4:45 PM God took Little Russ from us. He was in a car accident and was thrown from the car. His car flipped 6 times and while it was in the air on the last flip, he was ejected. he landed on the back of his head. He lived for about 30 minutes afterwards.

My brother had a hard life, he got addicted to drugs as a preteen and fought addiction all his life. About 4 years ago he got clean. He was working and had a nice house and 2 cars. He had gained weight and was doing great. Last year, his live in girlfriend left him for another man and he fell apart. He started hanging with his old drug buddies and met what he called his "rebound" girl. On Sunday May 5, 2013 he went to church with my mom and accepted God into his heart. On Wednesday, May 8, 2013 he helped my parents pack for their move to West Virginia. They took pictures with my brother's phone and said see you soon. The next day was the accident. His girlfriend only got cuts and bruises from the accident. My sister and grandmother were notified at 8:30 PM after the State Patrol looked up my brother's name and emergency contact info. The police believe that the scenario of the accident is suspicious. There had been a 911 call a few minutes before the accident saying they were fighting on the side of the road so we know for sure of that.

My brother was a funny, outgoing, crazy, wild person who loved life. he was the type of person who if he came to your house and you did not feel like being picked on or bothered, the first thing you would say would have been, "Not today Russ. Don't even think about it!" He was the life of the party at our wedding. Though he had some really hard times in his life, his favorite saying was, "Life is good despite the bullshit." I will miss him dearly. My sister is crushed, she lost her twin. My mom and dad are devastated. My mom had to say goodbye to her only son and my dad to his youngest son. My kids lost an uncle who they absolutely loved to death. There is also a girl who is 7 months pregnant and he had said the baby was more than likely his so there is a child who will never know his daddy. I am in shock and disbelief, I keep expecting him to come in my grandmother's house and say Haha, it was all a joke. I wish he would, I would beat his ass for this, but God do I wish I could really hug him and hear his voice at least one more time. I didn't get to tell him Happy Birthday. I was working and figured I would speak to him soon. I hadn't spoken to him in a few months. I regret not taking a moment to call my little brother. I did send him a card on FB. I told my mom the day before that if I didn't get to speak to him for her to tell him to go on FB because he never did go on there. I don't know if he did or not, but I doubt it because he would have commented on the card.

My grandmother's neighbor's son lives right across from where the accident happened. he did not know who was in the accident, but he took pictures of the accident and when the paramedics were working on my brother. In the picture below, we know the paramedics were working on him, but we cannot see him. What we can see are 2 figures that look like angels. If you look, you will see 2 white figure, one beside the police expedition and one behind the paramedics near the woods. I believe these angels came to take my brother home. I felt my brother hug me at the funeral home the first day there. I was crying with my son and I felt pressure from behind on my upper back, shoulders, and arms. My son also felt it on his upper arms and shoulders. It was instantly calming. I know he was there and was hugging me. I dreamed about him the night he was killed. I dreamed he was in the casket and dressed exactly as he was when I did see him in the casket. I was fussing him out for not wearing a seatbelt. In my dream he opened his eyes and told me that he was wearing a seatbelt and that everything will be ok. He also tried to tell me something, but I can't remember what it was. I dreamed about him the next night as well, he hugged me and told me something, I feel it was the same thing he told me the night before, but I can't remember it. Many people have felt his presence during the wake and even afterwards.

My brother is now in Heaven with God, our chihuahua we had as children, Smokey, Jesus, our grandfather and his grandparents form his dad's side, as well as with my little angel that I lost only 3 weeks before my brother. He is holding her and telling her all about her mommy and the rest of her family.  I am heartbroken, I regret moving to Mexico. By doing the legal thing with my husband I misse dout on my baby brother's last 2 years. It sucks and I really wish the stupid US government would wake up and realize what they are doing to families. I had to come by myself with my kids to say goodbye to my brother. My husband could not come because of USCIS. We couldn't even try to get an emergency visa because the Consulate was closed for Mother's Day in Mexico! The American Consulate for God's Sake and it was Mother's Day only!! More than likely he would not have gotten the visa, but at least we could have tried. I am so angry with our government at this moment. I should not have had to make that choice. I should have been able to get my husband legal from the US and not have had to leave. Yes, I made the choice to marry my husband, but I should have the right to marry who I choose and not have to worry about immigration consequences.

Here are a few pictures of my brother. May he rest in peace.
12 weeks old

About 2 years old


With his grandfather, twin sister, and aunt

With his nephew, my little boy

He was a lady's man as you can see. The girl in the striped shirt was his girlfriend. The girl whose butt he is grabbing is his best friend from his teens wife. LOL 

Their 18th birthday

100 bucks!!

He thought he was the shit. LOL

With our other brother, Allen. He lived with us for 3-4 years and became like a brother to us.
Always spoiled by Mom and Dad.

With his twin, Nicole, our brother Allen and Allen's wife Shannon

He had an absolutely beautiful smile.

Our wedding, he decorated the trucks. he did both because he didn;t know which we were going to use. Notice where he wrote Just, he started to write 2 S's instead of st. he said he forgot he wasn't writing his name! LOL

He was so excited about my wedding!

He tried to make us all 3 fall.

As you see, he was my aggravating little brother. I could not believe he did this!

He and our cousin, his best friend

They loved to shock people! This was their way of getting the party started. LOL Everybody saw this and it really pumped up some action, especially laughing!! Both had steady relationships and people kept asking me if they were swingers! I kept saying, no they're cousins! LMAO

My brother and his twin sister. He was best man and she maid of honor.

My mom and her only son.

My brother and his twin again.
My last picture of him, he was mad because we woke him up.

My wedding was the last time my brother was with his twin sister. She moved a week later to Montana and hadn't been back until his accident. Please pray that our family can find peace and that my brother is in paradise. We have lost a huge part of us and God will he be missed. He was cremated and no sits upon my parents headboard shelf. Lil bro, you can now sleep with Mama and Russ every single night like you always tried to do as a kid. I love you and will miss you so much. We will never forget you and all of our kids will always know who their Uncle Russ was. We love you Dude. 

Rest in peace Lil Russ

We will always love you and miss you.

Time to Get Healthy

           So as most of you know, we have been trying to get pregnant for a year now. Well, over the course of a year I have taken different fertility medicines. A bad side effect of these medications is weight gain. I have gained 24 pounds since starting treatment in January. I have went up a size in clothes and this size is getting tight on me.

            Being overweight can affect fertility. I will continue treatment, but will be eating healthy and exercising while in treatment. I will not be able to do heavy workouts, but will be able to walk during treatments. Heavy exercise can damage the ovaries while they are being over-stimulated.

            My exercise routine until I start treatment in about a week or 2 is:

  • Walk 1 hour each day
  • Lunges
  • Crunches
  • Stairclimbing 20 minutes a day
            My diet will be to lower my sugar and fat intake, but to continue to eat healthy.
            A sample day I have planned is:

  • A small cup of coffee with 2 teaspoons of sugar and 1/8 cup of milk
  • 2 egg whites or other high protien food
  • 1 piece plain WW toast
  • 1.5 cups of lettuce
  • 1/2 avacado
  • 1/2 cup shredded chicken breast
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tostada
  • Water
           Snack (to be eaten throughout the day)
  • 2 carrots with lime juice
  • 1 Apple or other fruit
  • 1 cup plain popcorn
  • Broiled Milanesa
  • 1/2 potato with salt
  • 1.5 cups broccili
  • 1 cup stewed tomatoes
  • 1 cup of sweet tea 16oz
          2 liters of water a day ( I may mix it with lime juice for flavor)

        I plan on having 1 meal a week to eat what I want so that I don't risk fall back. I am a chocoholic so I will eat something chocolate for dessert during this meal.

        I hope to get pregnant during this cycle. If I do, I will continue to eat healthy, but will add calories accordingly. I don't want to overeat or eat empty calories causing me to gain excessive weight as I did with my other kids. I only want to gain at most 20lbs during my pregnancy, but would like to gain less if it will be ok. I now weigh almost as much as I did when I had my kids so I really don't want to gain that much more.

        If I get pregnant, I will continue my exercise routine. 

       I am very busy, I work fulltime, go tot school fulltime, and homeschoool my kids so I don't have time to fix meals really. Any ideas on quick easy low fat, low calorie meals I can eat while working?

Look what I found....

Ok so this may not be for all who read my blog, but a lot of you live in Mexico with your spouse who is waiting out a ban. So this is for you and me. It is possible for our spouses to get a tourist visa to visit the States with us when we go. Here is the information:
CAN I VISIT THE UNITED STATES? You may want to visit the U.S. on a temporary basis with a non-immigrant visa. Examples of non-immigrant visas include tourist visas, student visas, and certain types of work visas. The same inadmissibility grounds apply when you’re requesting a non-immigrant visa, but most inadmissibility grounds can be waived for a non-immigrant visa even if they cannot be waived for an immigrant visa.
To get a non-immigrant visa, you will need to do two things: 1) prove that you intend to return to your country of residence,waiver of inadmissibility. 
and 2) obtain a Certain types of visas that are technically "non-immigrant visas" can be granted to individuals who may also have immigrant intent (meaning the desire to immigrate permanently in the United States). These include the H, L, O, and P visa which are different types of visas for temporary workers. Each of these visas has different eligibility requirements. You can learn more about the different types of visas for temporary workers here: If you qualify for one of these visas, you will not need to prove that you intend to return to your country of residence, but you will still need a waiver of inadmissibility if you are inadmissible.
If you have been deported in the past, you need to follow these steps even if you live in a country where people are usually allowed to visit the U.S. without a visa. 
[A] PROVING THAT YOU INTEND ON RETURNING TO YOUR COUNTRY When you apply for a non-immigrant visa, you will be asked to attend an interview at a U.S. embassy or consulate in your country. At the interview, you must convince the officer that you are going to return to your country within the time limit you are given. This is called having non-immigrant intent. Demonstrating non-immigrant intent can be very difficult if you lived in the U.S. for many years, if you previously violated immigration laws, or if you have close family members (such as a spouse or young children) who are still in the U.S. ~ 17 ~
If you cannot convince the officer that you intend to return to your country, your visa application will be denied, and the decision cannot be appealed. You can, however, try again in the future.
You can show non-immigrant intent by showing that you have strong ties to your current country of residence. In most cases, it is easier to prove this if you have lived outside of the U.S. for a long time after your deportation.
Examples of ties to current place of residence include: 
• Job;
• Owning a house, business, or other property;
• Bank account;
• Community ties;
• Family members who live with you and/or depend on you in your country of residence. 
[B] WAIVER OF INADMISSIBILITY Only if you convince the consular officer that you will return to your country will the officer look to see whether you are otherwise eligible for a visa. If the consular officer determines you are inadmissible, he will then consider you for a waiver of inadmissibility for non-immigrants, also called a 212(d)(3) waiver.
Almost every ground of inadmissibility (except for grounds related to terrorism and national security) can be waived when applying for a non-immigrant visa. This includes inadmissibility based on a removal order, criminal convictions (including an aggravated felony), unlawful presence, and grounds of inadmissibility that cannot be waived when applying for immigrant visas (such as false claims to U.S. citizenship and certain criminal grounds that cannot be waived for immigrant visas).
The office reviewing your request for a waiver will look at the following factors:
• Your reasons for wanting to visit the U.S.
• The risk of harm to the U.S. if you are allowed to visit
• The seriousness of your prior violations of criminal or immigration law
You do not need to show extreme hardship. In fact, such hardship might actually work against you. For example, if the consular officer thinks that there are family members in the U.S. who cannot survive without you, your application may be rejected because the officer believes you intend to remain in the U.S.

Ectopic Pregnancy turned Blighted Ovum :(

Well, we thought I had an ovarian ectopic pregnancy. I received my hormone levels and they had dropped form 160 to 20 in 3 days. We saw a sac on Monday and the sac was considered a cyst this morning since it hadn't grown or changed shape since Monday. I do have an ovarian cyst that has grown and had what looked like an embryo inside, but it seems it is just tissue. Since my betas have dropped that means that I had a blighted ovum which is a fertilized egg that attaches to the uterus, but fails to develop. This is the light in my darkest of dark days.

This morning I was told that my only option after an ectopic was IVF. I was so scared. IVF is expensive so we can't afford many IVFs. Heck, we would have to save up for a few months for 1. So, if it didn't work we would more than likely not be able to try again.

Now, we know that we can try again right after I finish a cycle of birth control pills to get rid of the cyst. Thank God for this miracle!! I am very sad about losing my baby, but very grateful to have the opportunity to try again for our rainbow baby.

Please keep us in your prayers that we conceive a healthy baby very soon.

We need all the prayers we can get. Pregnancy related

I had an ultrasound Monday at 5 weeks 1 day. It showed a sac in my uterus, but a little low. I then had HCG hormone levels done today and they were lower than they should be. They should have been atleast 360 and they were 160. Which was odd in itself, American Pregnancy Ass says that you can't see anything unless the levels are 1000. We have another ultrasound on Saturday. I ask for all the prayers we can get that this baby is a sticky and take home baby! Please pray for us and our baby.

We are Having a Baby!!!

You read that right! We are having a baby!! Finally after my tubal reversal in March 2012 Surgery Post, 13 months, 17 cycles, Clomid, injectables, and finally progesterone. We now are pregnant!!

This last cycle, we used 100mg CLomid, 2 Menopur shots, 10,000 iu trigger shot, and 200 mg progesterone a day. I ovulated 3 ovum and at least one stuck!! On 7DPO(days past ovulation) I did a test to make sure the trigger, which is basically pregnancy hormone was out of my system and it was. So, on Thursday 10DPO I tested again and had a very light positive on a cheapie internet strip. I waited impatiently 2 days and did a Forst Response, it was Positive!!! We were so happy and excited. Well, that night I started bleeding so I thought all hope was lost. I was told to do a blood test anyway since the bleeding was not a typical period bleed. My betas were 20, normally negative, but due to all of my symptoms and the lack of a real bleed we did another test on Wednesday before starting treatment this month. My betas doubled!! They are supposed to double every 48 hours and they were 40! I have taken 2 more cheap tests from here since and they are positive. I am sleepy all the time and nausea from hell! I go for another beta Wednesday and then an ultrasound Saturday.

My due date is December 9!!!

I leave you with my tests:
7 days past ovulation and 10 days past ovulation

First Response at 12 days past ovulation

Top is last night 18 days past ovulation 2 hour hold Bottom: this morning 19 days past ovulation first morning urine

I will post ultrasound pics next week!

Missing Child!! Please be on the Lookout!

My friend's daughter ran away yesterday. She is only 17. She left a note for her boyfriend saying that she was leaving and not coming back because she didn't want to cause him and her mom to suffer. We are very worried about her. Please be on the lookout for her. If you see her call 911 or/ and send me a message on here. She lives in Georgia, but could be anywhere. She is not with any friends or her boyfriend. He has been with her mom since yesterday looking for her. The police will not do anything. They say that she will come home when she is ready. We don't believe that. We are all very worried about her. Please help us find her!

My Dull Life...

      Well, I was trying to figure out what to post. Our life is so dull right now thank God!

      The only cool thing going on is we are in the process of planning a business. Our goal is to open an apparel store for women, men, and kids. We have started searching locations and checking prices.

      On the school front, I am waiting on my final grade for my Ethics class. I have a feeling that I did not do too well, but we shall see.

       As for TTC, I finished my Menopur and Clomid a week ago. I trigger tomorrow night and start progesterone on Monday. I go in for betas on April 4th. I feel a little more optimistic about this cycle,  but not as much as the beginning of this journey.

     Homeschool, is good. The kids are doing pretty good right now.

     So, as you see my life is very dull, but I couldn't love it more!!

Found my Blog!!! Update on my life...

I could not find my blog. I searched and searched. I finally saw the link for lost blogs. A tada!! I saw the eliminated blogs. How my blog got eliminated, who knows, but it is up and running again!!

I have not written in  here in a very long time. Hence why I didn't even realize my blog was missing. A lot has happened in my life in the past few months.

Miguel got this stupid idea that he was going to the US with or without a visa. So, he was stuck on using a coyote. It took me 2 months and enlisting the help of his parents and sisters to talk him out of it. he was even talking to the coyote and had set a date to leave and all. I told him that I would not even put up with it. that would mean 2 years in Mexico for nothing!! He told me that I could go with him to the States or stay here in Mexico, it was up to me, but he was gone. he had had it with Mexico.

Well, we are now back in Monterrey, but in our own house. We sold our TV, old computers, and video games. The kids pitched a fit about the video games, but I told them that they haven't played them in over 7 months so why keep them. I did promise to buy my son the PS Vita for Christmas. He is getting a laptop for his birthday in July. My daughter already has her laptop. This is the reason the video games have not been touched. Anyway, we sold all of that and with the money bought new furniture!! Yayy!!!

I am still homeschooling. This is getting more difficult. My son who is 9 is going through the "school sucks" stage. My daughter on the other hand is doing awesome in school!! She is in 5th grade and learning Algebra. She loves it and catches on so quick. I usually only explain the process once and she gets it. My son is really good at school and learns things quickly, but his problem is he wants to rush through everything and does not read directions. So, he usually has to redo his worksheets and he hates it. I have told him and told him to read directions.

I am still working with Open English and loving it!! I will be working with them for a year in 3 weeks.

I am now in college. I am studying online to get my paralegal degree. I have been studying since September. At first it was horribly hard, but I think I have re-learnt how to learn.

We are still TTC. I have had 2 chemical pregnancies, one in September and one in December. I had an HSG done a couple of weeks ago. I have one blocked tube and one good tube. My reproductive endocrinologist is going to start more aggressive meds this cycle. I had a psychic reading and she said that she did not see anymore children in my future. I am bound and determined to prove her wrong!!

We are finally going to apply for Miguel's visa. His little stunt made me think that I better hurry up and get him that. He is getting tired of being here. I think it is finally getting to him that I make more than 3 times what he makes. I am praying that the Reform happens and the 9B and 9C bans are removed or atleast made easier to get waived without having to wait the 10 years.

I am going to take pics of our new house as soon as the cabinets are installed. I am loving my cute little house!! That is the first time I have actually said that since being in Mexico.
