We've got a few things going on around here - and I'm trying to plan but also not over plan and drive everyone nuts. And since it's never a good idea to keep all these things bottled up, you, my lucky readers, get a glimpse into my mind today.
Little Man and I are headed back to Boston in less than two weeks. My brother is graduating from high school, and we want to make sure we're there to celebrate. I've been planning visits with people while we're in the States and what we can do to help around the house for the celebrations - but I'm also planning on how to manage the Little Man by myself for the trip. Mark will be staying in Tilburg as the end of the academic year keeps him awfully busy, and while I've done air travel with the Little Man alone plenty of times (starting when he was 10 or 11 weeks old), I've never done such a long trip. Much of my preparation for this is a mental psych-up, and I'm going to cross my fingers that he continues his "good traveler" streak.
When we return, we dive right into plans to find a new home and move. Our current home is a rental, and the contract is up without the possibility to renew in August. We've already tried looking a bit, but the agencies I've talked to all say that it's too early to start. But once we get back, I'm starting up fresh and serious to find something - because I can't stand the idea of sitting in limbo.
I expect the next month or so will be interesting with all the travel and planning, but we'll be plodding through it since no one else is going to do it for us.
Do you have planning going on? Have you ever moved within a foreign country?
