10 years, baby!

June 9, 2009

Ooohh.  I just got a letter in the mail saying that I can go an pick up my 10 year carte de sejour!  I am so happy and relieved!  After spending countless days in the past 7 years at numerous prefectures I will finally be able to stay out of that place!  At least until we move or something like that…  (Or until I show up and it turns out that they are only going to give me another one year card…  haha)  It is a good thing to, because with the baby on the way I have a feeling that I will be spending a certain amout of time in the American Embassy at the end of the year getting that whole situation sorted out!

A few months ago the mayor of my village sent me a letter, the prefecture was asking for his opinion on whether or not to give me the carte de sejour.  It was actually pretty funny at the time, he was supposed to check that I speak French.  We ended up chatting for a quite a while, and he is a pretty well traveled man for someone from the middle of nowhere France.  At the end of our entretien he said that he would give a more then favorable opinion to my request, and it looks like he really pulled through for me! Now I just have to start working on him to allow us to extend our house…
