Anyway, the time has come and now I'm running around like a chicken with her head cut off, trying to make room for him and all his things in the house. He said he doesn't mind living out of his suitcase for a while, but I really want him to feel comfortable so that's not an option, in my opinion. But even after he arrives, there will still be more rushing around. We have to get rings, and finalize wedding arrangements, and get a marriage license, and then apply for his adjustment of status. Yes, folks, it's not over. Once we're married, we still have to apply for what is called an "adjustment of status." That means he'll then be issued a social security number and be legal to work. He'll be considered a legal "permanent resident." Then, after two years of being married and living and working here, he'll be able to apply for a green card. He'll then be a citizen.
Hopefully he won't have as much trouble getting a greencard as John Lennon did!

But I guess as long as he doesn't piss off Richard Nixon he should be all right. Oh, wait... Yeah, he should be all right then.
