Breathe?

Not sure how I'll find time to actually breathe these next two months. The to-do list is astronomical!

We spent two hours on the phone talking to the relocation rep so she could explain all the details of the move. We will be working with movers, security reps, furniture renters, cultural training, tax advisers, mail services, banks, cars, new pet owners, home maintenance, home sitter, etc. The list really does go on! That doesn't even include Lyvia's post placement visit with the social worker and everything we need to complete on the ranch house. Whew!

The saddest thing we discovered during the phone call was that there is no help with the pets. We already knew we didn't want to put either of them through a move to a new country and the relo people cautioned against it as well.

Guess I better stop staring at the computer in a stupor and start working through one thing at a time!

Bless your hearts, sweetie! What lies ahead is an enormous undertaking in every direction. But it is just for 2 years, so perhaps your Dad or the house sitter would welcome the pets? Your family would be home to visit a couple of times a year (if I remember correctly).

There is no easy way to leave friends and family members of 2 legged and 4 legged varieties, so you just have to do the best you can and forgive yourself the rest.

Wishing ya'll wisdom, peace with decisions, clear thoughts, and restorative sleep.....

Let not your hearts be troubled.

Hugs! Barbara :D
