Leaving on a jet plane

I have a few more hours at home and then I fly to a new home across the ocean. My cold has prevented me from thinking of anything but getting better so I'm not nervous, scared, or excited. I just am - I'm going because that is where my husband is leading our family. I have no idea what I will be doing but I know it will be quite an adventure.

Since we are only going for about 6 months, his company is not paying to ship anything and neither are we. We packed two large suitcases each and a carry on item. This included coats and boots, books and dvds, our computer and of course our camera complete with cords to upload photos to said computer. I was surprised at how easy it was to fit everything and happy to be living a bit more of a simplified life since we did not have room for "clutter" or our amazing book collection :-D

I'm sure my next update will be a bit more exciting - because I'll be in England!


  1. Safe travels!!! Can't wait to get your British updates :-)

  2. I hope that you are feeling better and that your trip is going well! I hate flying while sick, so I hope your body decided to get better quickly!

  3. Thanks all! I made it even with the congestion - my husband was a great travel companion and we are settled into our new city (aka small) apartment that is just lovely - pictures soon!
