The target completion date for the security clearance was yesterday, yes, Sunday. So today we got the message, after I hounded my husband to email the State Dept, that, "thank you, try again in two weeks."
So, back to being good and waiting. The thing is, we are so boring and never really go anywhere, so I'm sure it will be just fine. Knock wood. Seriously, married ten years, own a home, most crazy travel in ten years is to Canada. We are squeaky clean. We've been home raising kids. Who has time or money for exotic travel? Especially with careers in journalism and teaching.
Anyway, the wait continues.
