On Saturday I was out of town visiting a friend. Big Bear sent me a text saying we received the date to re-do our fingerprints. Woooo Hooooooo!!!

This morning I opened my letter before filing it away. I hadn’t opened it because I figured it would be the same as Big Bear’s letter. My jaw dropped when I read my letter. Why would my jaw drop, you ask?? Well…

Big Bear’s time and date:
Tuesday, April 21 at 3:00pm.

My time and date:
Wednesday, April 22 at 8:00am.


I’ve been working on my paperwork renewal (that’s a whole different misery) ~ now this. Oi Vey! I am planning to go with Big Bear and pray that they will have mercy and do my fingerprints then too.


  1. Are they purely nuts???

    Seriously, I cannot imagine they would not do you both at the same time.

    It will be so nice when Jack helps you forget all of this hoop-jumping. You'll have brand new (and cuter) hoops to jump through.

  2. Unbelievable!!! That is the most ridicules thing I've ever heard.

    Good luck!

  3. OMG that pic you choose is PERFECT... Are you kidding me????? I say it's a good idea to just go with him and see if they can do yours too. You have nothing to lose!!!! I'm sorry this has to be such work to do this all over again!!!! I dread it :(

  4. No way!!! What a pain! Sure hope they're able to do both of you at the same time.

  5. Ugh!!!
    I'm sure they will go ahead and do yours too! The last time we went, Matt's time was an hour before mine, but they did not make me wait. I wonder what these people are even thinking when they do stupid stuff like that!!!

  6. It's official, they are manjor dingle dorks over there! Geez, surely they will do you at the same time; that's just ridiculous!!!

  7. WHAT !!?? Surely someone somewhere made a huge mistake on that one. I too would go with Big Bear and see if they could just "fit" me in!!

  8. How AGGRAVATING!!! I hope they do the right thing and let you both take care of business the same time!

  9. That is rediculous....it has to be a mistake. I would go along with him too....I am sure they will take you both!!

    Good luck with the rest of your paperwork...we are knee deep in ours too!


  10. Can you ring and say, you'll both be there on Wed 21 at 3pm? That's just plain dumb if you ask me!

    I was just reading your last post as well (we were in Bali, when you wrote that one!) Yes, its mad to think that these "strangers" are friends!!! And what wonderful friends they are (even though I haven't had the pleasure of driving with, or even meeting them!!) Its amazing what can bring people together.

  11. That's crazy! But aint that the way it goes right?
