We have one week left here in the US. Then we are off to our new adventure of Germany. I can’t even begin to tell you the emotions I am feeling right now. Overwhelmed doesn’t explain it either.
We are leaving during my favorite time of the year. We are thankful to Stacey and her husband for opening up their home to us on Christmas. We haven’t done much in the way of Christmas for the kids.We will get the shopping done once we get there. I will be thankful for everything to be done.
International moves are enough to make anyone couple crazy. What I have realized is it has brought Paul and I even closer. We have had to work and make sure everything is done correctly as to not leave things behind. We have also worked figuring out what we were selling and what we were getting rid of. We also have had to put all our trust in this was the right thing for our family. A little late to back out now. Even though I have awoke in the middle of the night asking what the hell we were doing?
In all honesty though I couldn’t be more happy about this move. I can’t wait for all the adventures we get to set out on. Memories that could have just been dreams had we been stationed just here. The fact that my children get to experince things that many children just dream about. They are so excited about the castles and trying new foods. Also being able to see Daddy. They still keep asking when we have to drop him back to basic training. Poor kiddos.
Though I am not looking forward to this
I know it can only last for so long and then we will get better weather. I can deal with that. I can’t wait for this journey to begin. I am excited, nervous, scared, unsure of whats to come. I am nervous about the flight with the kids but luckily they will have drugs and so will this mom. Nothing like a little bit of xanax for Mommy to relax and they will sleep since it is a night flight. I am looking forward to that.
So we have been absent due to Flordia trip and getting all the last details done here at home. I have many post schedualed so they will keep you entertained while we are with out internet. Not sure how long we will be down. I have the rest of this week and monday of the following. Then I am sure I will be S.O.L.
