15 Weeks Of Work? What????



I just counted how many more weeks of work I have! Oh My! Fifteen weeks to go! I know, some of you don’t want to think about it, and I’m sorry to make you sad. But I can’t help but be super excited! Scott and I are working so hard to make this all happen and all our hard work, planning, and strategizing is coming to a completion. I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel! I have most of our essential belongings that we want to take with us packed up and stored in the storage unit. I have a couple more truck loads to take to the donation place and I’ve made a list of things that I need to find a home for like big planters and garden things that I think friends or family may like to take. Soon Scott will be ready to start loading up his tools and clearing out his workshop. The biggest pieces of the puzzle are very close to being done. Landscaping the backyard will be the last big push at the house then we can begin , in earnest, to work on all the documentation for residency in Panama and importing the cats and the transfer of the salon to Natalie. I know she is giving me a generous gift of patience , I have been so caught up in my own transition and as a result her transition to a business owner has been very much neglected by me . I’m about to have room in my head to change my focus to working on the salon and walking Natalie through the process of becoming an independent business owner. She’s gonna be Great! When I think of her running the salon, I feel so glad. There are so many pieces to this puzzle and as organized as I’m attempting to be, some things just have to be addressed first before I can move on to the next piece. Counting the number of weeks I have to work is just one more measure of time for me and I hope those of you who are sad about our move can let me be excited , cuz’ I’m really , really beginning to feel my feet getting eager to do a “Happy Dance!” . Not to worry, I’ll hold off for a bit longer before I let loose with some killer, happy moves! Giggle! Giggle!

Life is Good! But it's time for a change, and more adventure! I'd like to share the whole experience of preparing then actually making a reality of expatriating, and moving to a new country. It's an exciting, and slightly scary move full of possibility . I'm looking forward to learning a new language and making new connections with the people who share our spirit of adventure. This blog is my way of continuing my connection with my friends and family in the States. Sooooo here it goes! :)

  1. We are both counting weeks me for my cruise ( not so life changing but exciting). I have extended my trip and it now includes CA in late May / June. I hope you are still in town and we get to break bread.Enjoy counting and the days and have a little dance.

  2. Congratulations on your progress so far! I remember those days.. it was just about a year and a half ago that we closed on our house and flew out of the country two days later. We were fortunate — the people who bought our house were moving from a one bedroom apartment and said we could leave anything we wanted!

    • Yes! It seems like so many things are feeling monumental at the moment. Each step we take , as you remember, brings us closer and closer to getting on that plane headed for Panama! Thanks for always sending me such encouraging words, it means a lot to me ! Im loving reading your posts but I’ll save my comment for posting on your blog! I hope one day we will get to share a drink and toast to our mutual Adventures! Cheers!
