wishing well, twinkling.

Today's our big day! My dearest's U.S. immigration visa interview is at 1.30 p.m. If you haven't been reading very long, here's us in a nutshell. Somehow, separately, we ended up living at the end of the world aka Patagonia chilena. He's from Turkey, I'm from California, we were married in Istanbul last year. Since we returned "home" to Chile, we've been taking steps toward his immigration process via direct consular filing in Santiago. (It's not a big secret that I've been done living here for a while, and that I'd planned on moving back to the States after completing my job contract a couple years ago. But then I met the love of my life. So, hey, plans change.) Well, today is the day, dear friends! Please toss some copper into the wishing well for us!

There's so much I'd like to write about, but we've been a little on the run these days. So little time. If I had some hours to spare, I would dive into what it means to try to go baby shopping for the first time here. A few days ago it gave me a case of the hyperventilation jeebies. (How many times do we have to change a newborn's diapers per day? So, how many cloth diapers to start out with? What do we need need need to have on the way home? Trying to think about all this stuff not even being sure whether baby will be born in Chile or the States can be kinda like a Ferris wheel of worry, spinning just a lit-tle too fast.)  

But I've come a long way since a few days ago, done more research.Written long lists using the invisible ink behind my eyes. Last night we bought a couple of smiley happy friends to dangle from a crib that we'll likely borrow. A toothy blue monster hums a tinny twinkle twinkle little star while the pink bunny giggles. They put a huge, calm smile on my face. And remind me that stars are such pretty lights to wish on.
