The Ball Has Started Rolling...

     Picture me as Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark, with the huge round stone barreling behind me. The stone is the impending move that is coming whether I am ready or not, and it is rolling faster and faster. Maybe it's not this dramatic, but this is how I feel. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining. It is just very hard for me to comprehend all of this at once.
     This is my crazy schedule for the next couple weeks. This coming Saturday I am driving down to Miami to see JP's family. Right after Turkey Day we fly out of Miami, leaving unassuming Georgie with my in-laws, to go to Germany. We will be there for one week, trying to find an apartment. This will be my first trip outside of North America. Then we fly back to Miami, pick Georgia up, and drive back to Atlanta. Then I have two weeks to finish everything I need to get done, packing things, donating things, selling things, throwing things away. Next we drive up to Michigan to see my family for Christmas and then it is back to Miami again to turn in JP's car to the dealership. Back to Atlanta, one more time, the movers will come the first week of January. Finally we will be in Germany for JP to start work January 11th! I feel like I held my breath the whole time I was writing that.
     The next couple of weeks will obviously be very busy for me. I originally was going to end my blog contest at the end of November but I am going to end it tomorrow night, November 18th, at midnight. That way I can send out the prizes before I leave for my house hunting trip. Anyone who still wants to get in on the contest should do so now or forever hold your peace.
     This won't be my last post of the year, (I hope) but I wanted to wish everyone a great Holiday Season! I can't believe how fast it has snuck up on us.


  1. Wow, good luck with the next few weeks, you are going to be one busy lady! We will miss you for sure, best of luck and can't wait to read your new blogs and posts from fabulous Germany!!

  2. That's a lot, Andi. But it will be a fun whirlwind. The F&B board and my facebook will be lonely without you. Good luck! P.S. are you taking your kitties and Summer with you, too??

  3. Georgie and the kitties will come with us. My dad will be taking care of Summer for us.

  4. Aww. I'm glad at least the furry ones could go. Will JP miss Summer, you think?

  5. Yeah, he will. But she will be in good hands with my dad.

  6. Enjoy all of it! Good luck finding an apartment! :)
