expat every days....

sometimes it can be so frustrating to live away from where certain "things" are easier...
for example:

I was planning on going to the US, as a last minute decision, to close on our house. It was cheaper for me to fly there and rent a car, as opposed to paying the fees of the attorneys to act in our behalf!
Well, as if that isn't enough...

I need to have some papers notarized seeing as only I was planning on flying. So, I need to act on behalf of my husband also.

Sounds simple right? Go to the Consulate and get the papers notarized.

No, they only see people from 2-3 pm, excluding all Brasilian and American holidays.
There fore, the first appointment that they have available is 5 days after the closing is supposed to happen.

Hhhhmmm, so what now sherlock? Well, I am working on it, and trying to find another English speaking and reading notary. Plus, I emailed the consulate to see if they could squeeze us in...yea right? "BG who?....needs what?...when?" That's what they will be saying...

Wish me luck

What were we JUST saying? "Nothing here is easy"? Yeah. NOTHING.

Good luck! I don't know much about this. Can you not fly to the states and have the papers notarized there? Or that doesn't work?

Well, sounds like you have a few more things going on than me. I can relate though, as I'm leaving for Belize on Saturday and then back to California on 25th, then off to Florida, via Chicago on the 26th, and back on the 29th, to look at a foreclosure by myself.
