For anyone keeping track of Kate, she will be making a big trip soon. This time it will not be on a train from St. Petersburg with a cabin full of crazy Italians but on a plane back to the United States.
Kate has her interview with the United States Consulate on January 14th, just two weeks from today. Assuming that everything goes to plan, it will take a few days after that for her to receive her new visa. Then she will have a couple of weeks to close out her work in Moscow and allow enough time for her mother to come see her off.
So, Kate should be back in Texas sometime in the first half of February. She will return to her husband Mike, a new position with the same firm she worked with in Moscow, and a newly renovated condo…Way to Go, Mike!
