All cylinders firing

  With only a few days left here in sunny Virginia, I'm finding there isn't a spare moment to breathe. Between my job responsibilities (yes, I'm working right up until the last possible hour), packing everything up for storage, running multiple moving sales on Craigslist and a multiple auctions on Ebay, dealing with real estate agents and their clients coming into my house every day, taking donations to Salvation Army, taking other donations to Studio Theatre, and ordering and/or shopping for required school gear, I'm a bit taxed.
  Add to that cancelling all my services and subscriptions, establishing a foreign bank account and a foreign phone and trying to find a flat to rent. Also, my visa might not come back from the consulate in time, so now I have to change my outbound plans and remain in Virginia instead of driving back to Albuquerque. This means a cancellation/last minute rebooking of my flight to London, and suddenly having to sell my Jeep locally.
  Life's been this way for months now, and I will be so incredibly grateful when this process is over. I'm used to burning the candle at both ends, and to having to adapt constantly to new plans, but this is even testing the limits of my resolve. I just keep telling myself "Eyes on the prize." Great rewards rarely come with no battles beforehand, right?


  1. I'm sure it's all incredibly stressful right now, but once you're overseas where you want to be you will be able to breathe a huge sigh of relief. Keep staying positive!!

  2. Yes it's hectic and crazy, but if it was easy it wouldn't be something you'd try. Difficult is interesting, which is why I think you crave it. Don't worry, you'll be great!
