My love affair with the mailman is over. For now.

Actually, today I went to check and see if our transcripts were in. It was a new person — a mailwoman, if you will — and she told me I couldn’t have my mail until she was done putting all of the mail in the boxes and she had closed them! So I stood next to the mailboxes and waited. I imagined if she asked what I was doing I would say “I’m waiting for you to close my mailbox, so that I can open my mailbox.” Anyway, she left and lo and behold — our transcripts were here! I expected them to come today, so I had all of our envelopes ready with the materials and postage. So I just dropped the transcripts in and mailed everything off.

A list of what I mailed:

Our transcripts

Our marriage license

Skills addendum for each work area

Tim’s answers to questions about being a vegetarian

Background check approval

Fingerprint cards

It took us almost a week to get everything together, but I think we did pretty well. Next step — interview!

I am in motion and in transition right now. I married Tim Knoll less than a year ago, and we recently applied to The Peace Corps. I work as a freelance journalist.

    1. We knew it would take forever to get all of the other stuff done. We were hoping that if we did things quickly we would get our nomination sooner. I think they really test your patience with the application process. Even with us trying to be speedy, we still didn’t get a nomination until four months after our interviews. We’ve heard of other couples that wait a lot longer though.
