Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2009 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

The one-way tickets are bought; December 8th is our date of departure. We'll return to the States in 2011 or 2012.

Now: estimates from movers, giving away and selling belongings, I haven't even started address changes/cancellations, and have I mentioned that this cold has me working at like 40% cognitive capacity? Whine complain blog.

Update: A bit premature as it turns out! The move's on hold till early spring for a variety of reasons; it'll be nice to have a somewhat more leisurely approach to the logistics.

One-way tickets are so exciting. I hope you feel better soon. hugs

YES! I will be driving through NYC (from DC to Boston) before then. If you are not entirely hosed with moving when I pass through, I'll get to see you before you leave (heck, if there's something I can do to lend a hand with packing while I'm there, just let me know).

Squee! And boo! And yay! that you aren't leaving so soon that I won't see you at least somewhere before you go across the pond! I was really bummed that we missed each other on opposite coasts -- but I have to admit that it was pretty funny. :)
