With our trip countdown numbered in weeks, we are tackling a long list. Similar to a move, we have to deal with our “stuff,” put the house on the market, and cancel all the utilities. We are also trying to untangle our personal commitments, make sure our bank and other important documents can follow us around the world, and arrange visas and lodging as we go. None of this would be so troublesome, except that daily life doesn’t stop. It is hard to find the time to get all the new things done, when the laundry, grocery shopping, homework, and car trouble keeps getting in the way.
I am looking forward to the leaving, but I am dreading the next couple weeks.
