Weekend Plans and More NZ News…

So guess what?  Our visas were returned.  Apparently, some things that Chris specifically asked about (whether or not certain forms needed to be re-signed by his doctor back in Massachusetts) did need to be re-signed, even after they told him they didn’t.  So, he has sent off these forms to his old doctor in Massachusetts via express mail.  The good news is that he was told the turnaround time for visa applications is running roughly 2 weeks.  Not bad.

My plans for this weekend aren’t at all glamorous.  I’m planning to do P90X on both of my days off (today and tomorrow), do some shopping, sleep, catch up on my budget planning, and watch some movies with Chris.  My time off flies by and I hate it that I’m working so much, but only a few more weeks!

In other news, 2 more doctors found out that I’ll be moving to New Zealand.  Both of them were surprised and sad that I was leaving.  One of them told me that it was like I had walked into the department and fit right in, that I had “assimilated” very well, and the other agreed.  They said that they hoped my husband knew what he was doing, taking a good nurse away from a good job!  I assured them that he did 🙂  Maybe I’m guilty of selling myself short, but I always assume that I’m doing things less efficiently or not quite as well as I could be doing them.  Hearing that made me happy 🙂

I hope that you all have a great weekend!

    It’s so nice to hear people say that you’re doing a good job and that you’re appreciated! I think I do the same thing – sell myself short or worry I’m not doing the best I can. Those types of reminders are always welcome!

    The visa application sounds like quite a process! I was lucky when I went to Australia that it was under a student visa because that made it much easier.

    Sorry to hear about the visas dang it… hopefully they get turned around quickly…

    and I think it is fantastic that you got some recognition… the difficulty with recognition is that we often think that people are doing a great job but we fail to tell them… and people strive to perform much better when given consistent, true, positive feedback than they do when all they hear about are their weaknesses…..
