Sunday Updates and Housing Thoughts

So on Friday (the day after I had FedExed the work permit papers) E gets an email from his new job saying that the current processing time for full work permits (what we had applied for) is 12 weeks. They decided that they do not want to wait that long (duh!), so they will be processing a temporary one for now and then a full one at a later date. The temporary processing time is only 2-3 weeks! Yikes! So, it's back to FedEx tomorrow to send in the temporary permit application. Realistically, this still probably puts us close to October by the time the application arrives in Cayman, is submitted by his job, is approved by immigration, etc. etc. Since I have a teaching job down there now, I will be going with Eddie instead of the original plan of waiting until December.

In other news, I have sold my entire house (well, what we are selling anyway) of furniture to one person! Woot! Woot! Still need to get rid of the cars.

The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman
Since we are really just waiting now and finished with paperwork until I need to apply for my work permit, I have been scouring ecay trade for housing options. This is like the Cayman Islands version of Craigslist. From here, you can then find different realtor websites for even more options to look at. There is a lot of rentals available and negotiating prices on rentals is normal, so hopefully we'll be able to get all (or at least most) of what we are looking for at a price we can afford. We will be allowed to stay at the Ritz for 2-3 weeks until we find a place where we want to live. Not a bad deal, huh?


  1. I just caught up on all of your news! So exciting!

  2. Not to shabby of a place to live!
