Leaving on a jet plane

So I got the call today that we have been waiting for... the one I wasn't expecting until next week.

It's offical we are headed to England.

I was so relieved that we had an answer and then I was excited because the opportunity it gives us as a family is tremendous. I am sad because I have an amazing group of friends here, my family is close, and the kids have great friends that none of us want to leave.

I start thinking of castles to go see, EuroDisney, traveling to Ireland, Italy wherever liked I have always dreamed and am happy.
Then, I asked how long the flight was....part of it is over 9 hours. Thats the second leg (whuck?) and we have a layover for the ENTIRE day in Amsterdamn. And I have three little boys ... under 6 and I was back to not so excited again.
I am not a Trekkie but why someone has not come up with a teleporter by now so we can beam wherever by now is beyond me. Get on it people !!

Approx 79 days

Well today we got our port call date... of course we still don't have orders so who knows if I am getting on a plane that day BUT if I am that is about 79 days away. 79 days...WHAT? So as I look around my house and see all this stuff that I have to decide is going with me I am panicked & excited and lazy all at once.
I really am tempted to let people just come "shop" in my house carry out whatever and then thats less to move. I will let you know if I decide to do that :)
