How can one have writer’s block before you even get a chance to start? I’ve been mulling over how to describe what’s going on and there’s just too much there. Everything bubbles right beneath the surface making it impossible for me to even decide where to begin.
With the wedding done, the hubby and I are now tackling the next life event before we can even catch our breaths. We started what I’ll dub as ‘The UK Move,’ back in February, 2009, but left it to the wayside because of the wedding planning that had overrun our lives.
But I resumed the process this week and the uncertainty of it all has left me at a loss. What am I supposed to do? At this point, all I can do is sit and wait, and that is something that this fair Asterisk has never done well. It’s out of my hands and back with my employer because I will need a work sponsored visa. Apparently I’m not valuable and esteemed enough in the eyes of the UK to qualify for anything else.
The lack of control means I have no bearing as to when everything will occur. How long will the sponsorship take? What time lines do I need to adhere to during the application process? Will I need to make a separate application or will my company be oh so kind and also handle this along with the sponsorship? We want to move by November; is that still possible?
Argh. Too many unknown variables. I just want someone to tell me everything’s good to go so I can buy my airline tickets.
Is that too much to ask?
