I think I might just love my elected official now
Or at least, I love his staff.
24 hours after my call to Bernie Sanders's Burlington office, I got a call back. The staffer spoke to the National Passport Agency people and they expedited my passport and are sending it Fed Ex. I even have a tracking number.
I'm still anxious, but not vomitously so.
And on the upside, my nervous energy allowed me to finish this next project in only 8 days.
It still needs to have a crochet edging added to the short sides, and then, of course, it needs to be blocked, but I'm pretty amazed at how quickly this went.
