So much for all my intentions and resolutions about blogging more. I do however have a darn good excuse. We are moving to London! London freaking England. I can hardly believe it, but it’s no joke. Wow! Yikes! Yay! Holy crap! I’m still having trouble wrapping my head around homebody, un-cosmopolitan me packing up and moving across the pond to such a big city. I’m trusting it is an amazing city, but I’ve never actually been there. Big step. Huge step. I’m shaking in my boots a bit but I’m taking the leap.
Between moments of doubting my sanity, I’m super excited though. Imagine all the sights we’ll be able to see, the exposure the kids will have to new culture and people, the museums, the travel, the everything. What an adventure we’re going to have. Plus there’s the pretty big benefit of Todd getting an awesome job. Happy husbands and paychecks are good things for sure.
I’d be 100% thrilled with the move if only we could somehow teleport our house and all it’s stuff to a great London location only 15 minutes from Todd’s office and fabulous schools for the kids. Awesome fantasy, but about as realistic as thinking Moxie will start winning obedience competitions. As it is my primary emotions are hope/trust that I will actually find a home and schools we like and that they will be no more than an hour away from work. Go positive attitude. Then there’s the panic over the daunting task of packing and prepping everything here fast enough for the kids to start school their next school year in London. Two months is not a lot of time to wrap up 20 years of living in Redmond and be ready to start making a home somewhere new. I always say I like a challenge and the universe is apparently listening to me. Food and sleep are over rated anyway.
Now that I can publically talk about the move I hope to be tweeting more and posting a bit about our progress, but knitting content will be pretty absent for a while. Although, keep your eye out for a massive de-stash sale (packing container is only so big). Please cross your fingers, pray or just send good vibes for as smooth a transition as possible.
Look out London, here we come.
