Nothing to report. Kostia has been calling the Swedish Consulate every day to see if the Migration Service has approved our residence permits yet. We submitted our applications nearly seven weeks ago now, and they told us it would take 4 to process them. It’s annoying, because I had to give notice at the language school since we had been planning to leave this week, so now I’m not really working, except for a few private lessons here and there. So I’m just sitting here in limbo. I suppose I’d like to take a long vacation someplace cheap and sunny if the residence permits are denied for some reason. Any recommendations?

About This Blog

I'm an American who started blogging when I moved to Russia in 2004. Eventually I moved to Sweden, where life is pleasant but uneventful, and stopped blogging for lack of interesting things to say. And then I joined Facebook, which further destroyed any motivation for blogging. Maybe someday I'll start blogging again, but for now, this blog is dormant, an archive of The Russia Years: 2004-2008.
