Point of No Return
My mother is a genius. We don’t use travel agents, preferring to do all of the legwork ourselves, so when I found myself in need of a visa agent I didn’t know where to turn. Mom suggested AAA. She’s brilliant. One telephone call and I had my visa agent.
And so it’s done. I am leaving the country in 37 days and I just sent my passport, as well as all appropriate visa documentation, to Houston.
Now I find myself questioning everything I did filling out the paperwork. “Is there a typo in my name?”…”Did I put the correct address on the FedEx envelope?”….I am dilligent, maybe even obsessive, about double-checking my work, but that will not stop me from going over it all in my head every day until I have my passport back in my hands.
The excitement over going to a new place combined with the nervousness about not having my passport has me so pumped I will hardly be able to function for the next month. Heavens help the people who have to put up with me.
