Alea Jacta Est

(or alea iacta est -- we usually say jacta in Brazil)

I sent the email at 11:33 (and began this post a minute later).

And earlier today, around 5 p.m. K mailed the signed forms and copies of all the required documents to the lawyers to get the ball rolling on the residency ("grass colored" card) application.

I hope both things yield results soon. And, for the first time ever, perhaps, I'm not looking forward to checking my email now. I should actually be working on the chapter I need to get to the committee by next week.

I am getting the house ready for my parents' arrival tomorrow night, though.

The guest bedroom is nearly done, pictures are forthcoming. So, gotta go help my husband assemble the bed. I'll be back tomorrow, though, OK?

Thank you so much for your words of support -- those that already came and those that are yet to come. And any volunteers for proofreading/ editing will be most appreciated.
