Overwhelmed by our To-Do list!

It’s March already and we still haven’t filed our taxes. It took a while for my W-2 form to get to our current residence. Apparently, they've mailed it to our old address in Ozark so I had to request another one since the first hadn't arrived. Jeff had problems on the other hand, retrieving his form online from the computer at home due to security issues. Du’h! One would think technology will make things a lot easier but there are just things that are better left the way they should be. Why can’t they just mail the form to their employees and not make them jump through hoops before they can get hold of the actual W-2? Oh well, some systems are just quite complex. Anyway, as I was saying, that is one of the important things that we need to take care of immediately.

Next in line, we need to file a petition to remove the conditions of my permanent resident status of this country. My greencard expires in 2 months and we have to comply with the requirements to avoid immigration issues. If you’re an immigrant like me, I’m sure you’re familiar with what I’m talking about. This whole immigration thing is never-ending, lol! The tedious task of collating documents and evidences makes me procrastinate all the more. I’m still not in the mood to dig through our old utility bills, health and car insurance, mortgage life insurance, joint bank accounts, photos and travel documents together and the like as proofs of the existence of our marriage. But I know I have to do this if I don't want to be deported back home, haha!

LOL...two things that have to be done! Yikes. Hopefully, the W-2's make it safely home so you guys can file taxes. Same goes for the greencard. It shouldn't take that long to renew, as long as you send it out on time. And, yes, you're right: greencards, visas, and anything that labels you as a non-citizen is such a pain in the butt. They keep raising the fees, so hurry up and get that citizenship paperwork filed and turned in! ;)
