Breaking News

I've missed y'all .....alot.

I haven't been able to read, much less post.

I was going to write a newsy update post, letting you all in on happenings in my life as well as (of course) how the 'weight loss journey' is going.

This morning, however, I was wakened by a phone call from my husband.....his visa that enables him to work in the US was taken away from him as he was on his way back to work.

The Visa he's been on for the last year is completely subject to the whim of whatever boarder guard is on duty at the time he crosses into the States. Today he got someone who (for whatever reason) decided that Jim's description of his duties at work did not fall within the legal description of a "Management Consultant" and, after interrogating him, and fingerprinting him, had Jim escorted back to Canada.

This means that he is unable to return to work, which obviously means he is out of a job in an industry that is in the last stages of death in our province/country.

I am a little overwhelmed this morning, as a result.

If you are interested in a more 'in-depth' report on this subject, you can go to my 'other' blog here .

I do want to catch up with y'all.....I've missed you so much this last week or so......I'm just not quite up to it this morning.

I live in Windsor & work at Chrysler & so although I'm not out of a job yet, I may be soon enough.
I hope there is a light at the end of the tunnel for us all. Good luck to you!!!

Oh my gosh, Karyn! I am so so sorry that you and your husband are having to go through this. I will be keeping you all in my thoughts!

The job title "Management Consultant" could encompass so many things. I don't think it's fair that the border guard could decide on a whim that it's no longer acceptable. If he was approved for the Visa, then he should be approved. You know?
