what’s new with my security clearance

Nothing. That’s what.

I guess not exactly nothing. I have heard from people in Ohio and New York who’ve been contacted by investigators, but no one in DC has been called yet. And no one in Michigan either, where I lived for five years. So I assume there’s still quite a bit of work to be done. Thank God I haven’t lived a move exciting life. Then the wait would be even longer.

I guess I should be used to waiting around. There’s a lot of that in my life these days.

  • Waiting for our France trip in two weeks.
  • Waiting for French to finally click in my mind.
  • Waiting for our departure for Benin.
  • Waiting to find out if there will be space for me in ConGen, which would set me up for a really cool sounding EFM job in Benin.
  • Waiting to find out what’s going to happen with our tandem couplehood.
  • Waiting for the day when my wife puts her laundry away within a week of it being washed.

I may be waiting forever on that last one.

    I think all the waiting is going to be worth it. Although you should probably give up on that laundry thing.

    I think you’re right. Surely top secret security clearance will be more easily had…

    I can empathize with the waiting. DS is done with all of my stateside contacts but apparently is waiting on a “records check” from provincial Russia where I lived 8 years ago. I can only imagine how long that is going to take.

    When you get to Benin you two (three, but I don’t think beagles wash their clothes very often) can hire someone to do the laundry (and the dishes!).

    Putting laundry away is the worst. When I stopped doing it, the laundry room became my closet and the place where I get dressed. Efficient. Effective. Your wife is simply leaning the laundry process.
