I love it when things come together. I’ve been poking about the lawyer’s site to see what was up with my visa and lo’ and behold on Friday, 3 months to the day that USCIS officially received the visa application it was approved. It was like a whole bunch of weight was lifted off my shoulders. I’m still waiting for details to come from the lawyers as to the next steps. Once I know, then I can move forward. I think part of it will include a visit back home to Canada to address my passport (and finally get all my ID in sync) as well as getting the visa itself.
Which then brings me to today’s little discovery. I decided to log into my company’s website and check out benefits and all that. I was looking at my coverage and noticed something. In the exclusions there was no mention of sexual reassignment. Yippee! Once I finish with the whole visa thing I will have two calls to make: one to a doctor and one to the DMV (Yes, yes.. I know.. I’m 40 and still don’t have a license).
Eh.. I don’t really need one. I did go out on a bike ride today (38KM on a single speed). It was awesome. It reminded me of all those times I’d just ride and let my mind drift into the ether. For some people they find spirituality in a building. I find it on a bike. I biked along the South Bay Beach Cities path (aka The Strand). The houses on there are amazing and it has to be the quietest path I’ve ever been on. I got as far as Marina Del Ray. The path itself is part of California Coastal Trail initiative. It kind of reminds me of the Trans Canada Trail but just not as long nor as cold.
I think I could kinda get used to all this… 😉
