criminals do it? Successfully? Really? Recently, I have had some interesting experiences which have caused me to think about that these questions.
I had to go to our local Police Station. I have never had to go to a Police Station before. I have never been inside a Police Station. Going to the Police Station made me feel guilty, like I had done something wrong. It was very discomforting. I had to be fingerprinted. ALL ten digits. Individually, and then five at a time. I actually thought I might cry during the process.
There were pages of forms I had to fill out. Copies of licenses were made. These documents were ‘official’. They were notarized; with the the raised embossed seal, and signed in the presence of the Notary. Once completed the envelope was sealed. Said documents were accompanied by a cashier’s check, mailed to the appropriate address. I sent off four separate envelopes and hand delivered another.
I am applying for a Nursing license in another state. Reciprocity or endorsement is what it’s called. Above was the process I needed to go through. I think I would have rather sat for boards again.
It can be expected to take up to six months to get a response. If it goes beyond the six month time frame, the entire process has to be repeated. Oh my.
In sewing related news…some hand applique I did on Monday evening was incorrectly placed. Now, I am trying to decide if I must un-sew?! And, the best laid plans…I had a pile of stitching and a ‘to do’ list for last evening. But, something else came along…
I don’t know how criminals do it? Honest!
