Even More Fingerprints

I remember my excitement at receiving my first CIS related paperwork, the paper saying I could get my fingerprints done which I even noted in my timeline. Now, I can't remember the day the envelope arrived this time around.

I finally opened it yesterday and was dismayed to find that, instead of a window of days, I was assigned a fingerprinting appointment for Friday, Sept. 24 at 8am. I cannot take off work, or several others must take off work since I am a childcare provider. Fortunately, today I only had three kids and had my assistant watch them while I went to the CIS office to see about changing the appointment. I'd tried calling but never could get a live person on the line.

I easily found parking, which is rare, and turned out to be a lucky omen because when I went in, the guard at the door said they weren't busy and to talk to the boss "at that table over there" and see if he get fit me in. I was in, done and out again in only 24 minutes! I think this is the 6th, 7th or 9thth time I've been fingerprinted since Jan. 2007. Now that I'm trying to think and remember, I realize it's been so many times that I've lost count!

We're expecting our renewal package from HSent in December, and will have to do it all by March. We also found last time, that when we made a surprise visit, they got us right in for fingerprints. Weird system!
