Tim and I went during lunch today to get our fingerprints done. We had no idea where to go, but the lady at the BMV told me I could get them done at the state police office on 21st and Post. So we drove over there, only to find an empty desk and no receptionist. We just kind of wandered around until we found someone. He helped us figure out the fingerprint cards, and he signed it. He said they are very picky about fingerprints, so these might not work out. Hopefully the quality is good enough that we won’t have to get them digitally done. Now we are just waiting on our official transcripts. I hope those arrive tomorrow, so I can call our recruiter and set up an interview. That might mean a trip to Chicago. I really want to get it done in the next few weeks. The sooner we interview, the sooner we can get our nomination. And once we get a nomination, we can figure out any vacation, lease, or pet plans.

As a side note, we were hoping to get some interest in Emo via the blog. Would anyone be open to taking him if this all works out? Tim and I agree that we took responsibility for him when we got him, and we would never leave him behind in a shelter. So, if it came down to that, we would not go. But we would be horribly disappointed. We really hope we can find a loving, temporary home for him. Please let us know if you think you would be willing to provide that.

  1. You shouldn’t have to go to Chicago for your interview–I’m from Chicago, and even I had my interview over the phone. Doing it in person’s always easier though, if you can.

    I’m excited you guys are keeping a blog on this; it’ll be great to hear about your experience!

  2. Well he said in his packet that we needed to contact him to set up an interview… we just assumed it was to be in person I guess. Might make the “couple” parts of the interview easier than over the phone maybe. I’m glad to hear that you’ll be following our blog!
