Yesterday I started the process of obtaining Global Entry status. Since I believe that I will be traveling outside of the United States at least twice in the next few years I decided it was worth the rigamarole and $100 fee for a five-year status upgrade. Two things that made my “paperwork” filing easier were the fact that I have been living at the same address for sixteen years, and employed by the same employer for nineteen. My consistency allowed me to only provide one set of details for each since neither had changed in the past five years. Now all I have to do is wait for someone to review my “paperwork” and then schedule an interview to complete the process.
Back On The Trainer
This morning I did an hour on the trainer, watching up to the finale of the first season of “The Amazing Race”. I have to hand it to the people who created this show because even the first season is watchable and not dated in anyway, and I was groaning the inclusion of one team in the finale even though this race was completed fifteen years ago! If I can keep to my training schedule I shall finally see the winners step on the mat Saturday — please, no spoilers. LOL!
Since I know that I will have a busy end to this week, and weekend, I decided that I should pack up my dirty clothes and do laundry tonight even though it’s only been a week since I last did laundry. If I am smart, and I am rarely smart, I will do my German homework from last night’s class tonight. Alternatively I can continue reading “A Prayer for Owen Meany” which I am hoping to finish before my journey up to Raleigh in a few weeks so that I can discuss the book with the people who suggested that I read it — the Raleigh Royalty.
Okay, got a late start today so I must bolt. Stay warm and have a great day friends!
