hurray!!!

A follow up post: after much wait and despair these past weeks I received in the mail 2 beautiful pieces of plastic: my Social Security Card and my Employment Authorization Card. This means I can have a driver's license and legally find a job. No more loafing as an Atlanta housewife... 
But not all is peachy: on the down side, we found out we don't have health insurance. This means we'll get on the first plane out of here if anything happens! Don't you just love "first world" countries!?

  2. Have you looked into getting Blue Cross or something of the sort? Perhaps for when you need to see a doc for the less urgent things.. like a flu! Sometimes we need drugs... legal ones! LOL

  3. first world country where people have a motorcycle accident, hurt the back the hit a rock with the head (nothing major though) and "avoid" going to the hospital! When you see them the next day, they tell you what happened, they are sad and worried with their back and head... but their solution is to rest and not push hard! Hopefully it will go away! Americans must love the US of A...
