Stress levels subsiding

Last night for the first time in a couple of weeks I got my first good night of rest. Perhaps it's because the packing is almost done, but I think it's more likely because I received my VISA for Saudi Arabia yesterday morning by courier. I have been worried that it would be rejected because it was actually missing some stuff, especially after reading in the Star about librarians from Africa scheduled to attend a conference in Toronto having their visas rejected. Apples and Oranges you say? Well I somehow managed to extract the essence of the story and turned it into another reason to lie awake at night thinking about my visa approval, among other things, like what kind of topics librarians discuss at international conferences. And whether it's possible to find abayas in turquoise instead of just black. And whether I could get arrested in Saudi for wearing a turquoise abaya if I had one made for me. Anyways, it felt like Christmas, opening that Purolator envelope up. What a treat! It's done and stamped, and if you ever want to see something funny I'll show you my visa picture.
