Proud American

For everyone who has NOT heard the story:
I came here to the United States from Germany as the wife of an american soldier. Two divorces and one daughter later I was faced with the decision to either renew my "Permanent Resident" card or apply for citizenship.
I have only my brother left in Germany and I am not planning to move anywhere else in the world. So I decided I would like to have a say in my community. I would like to be able to vote for more money for my daughters school. I would like to be able to vote for who will represent me in Washington DC. Or what they do with my tax money.
So I saved up the application fees and mailed in my application in November.
In December I was sent an appointment to get my fingerprints taken at the local Office for Homeland Security.
Today I had my final interview at the same office and my application was accepted.
Now I'm thinking it is going to take a few more weeks before I get a final decision. Yeah, right.


I'm so excited. My youngest is happy, because she gets out of school a little earlier and my son in law is not so happy, because he has to drive me there, LOL.
So, yeah, that's the big news for today! Yay!
