No. Maybe. Yes. Well...

This waiting is unbearable. I know we won't get called. It is all a waste of time. The last year has been por nada. We shouldn't have bothered with the FS.

Then again maybe we will get called. You never know. It could happen, just wait. Patience. Practice German. Pass the test. Try to enjoy life each and every day, regardless...blah-dee, friggin', blah, blah, blah. Maybe even without the language it'll all work out. Hm.

Yes, it will work out. We will get called. For sure. It will happen. Get ready. This is a sure thing.

Then again, maybe not. Yes. No. Yes. Oh, dammit. Check the A-100 board. No don't check, yeah, check...

Welcome to my brain.

It's not squirrel nests, but it's close, it's the real deal.

ha-ha-ha!!! I have so been there - that was exactly my life a little over a year ago! Hang in there!!!

I feel your pain!! We were in the same boat and when we finally found out, it was very surreal. You'll get it and then you'll get the bid list and you'll be in a squirrels nest again. It's all part of the fun/torture.

I feel your pain; although I'm not even on the register yet. Once it happens, you'll be crazy busy getting ready, so maybe it's a blessing to have this time. Best of luck on your husband's German exam. Has he scheduled it?

Yes! I so hear you!! Bridget, who just passed the OA and has no idea if her 5.4 will be good enough!!

You are in good company! The Hurry Up and Wait club. You have articulated the conversations we've all had in our heads. You WILL get through it. You WON'T go crazy. It's NOT for nothing. But it feels like insanity.

Hang in there. And let us all know what you find out!

I can totally understand the pain of all that. All I can say is hang in there!!! It is so hard to go through it though. I hope soon that you will have confirmation~

I could have written this post. Nice to know I'm not the only one going semi-crazy from this process. ;) Your husband's on the PD register, right? (Mine is on POL.) I seriously check the A-100 board at least 10 times a day, wondering if more invites have gone out, what the lowest known score called up is, seeing who else has made the register (and cursing them if they are higher ranked than my husband), etc! Sure you know the feeling. Hopefully our numbers are called up soon.

Hang in there!

It's been (gulp) 12 years and one month since we got the call. I still remember the nerve-wracking wait... hoping you hear soon!

The wait is definitely crazy-making. We have all been through it. Hang in there!
