We are still waiting by the phone to hear news from our mortgage broker about whether the loan for the house will come through. Seems the slow pace of our immigration service, which has failed to get Michael a green card after 2.5 years of marriage to an American citizen, is a bad match for the bureaucracy of a mortgage lending firm. Alas.
Anyway, just waiting on pins and needles for that. Otherwise, all’s going well. We had a glorious Memorial Day long weekend. We hung out in Golden Gate Park on Saturday and went to Tilden Park in Berkeley on Sunday. Generally, it was very relaxing — just what we’ve needed with all of the house and baby stuff keeping us busy most other times.
