As excited as we are to be moving overseas, we are as equally over whelmed. Sounds easy enough, pack up all your belongings into cardboard boxes put them in an even bigger box, get on a plane and viola! You have successfully moved! I wish!
The more you read, the more you know and in my case the more anxiety will grow. It’s the little things you don’t think of right away like foreign car insurance, overseas drivers license, international phone service, shipping our cars and dogs, the newest epiphany being that our appliances won’t necessarily work over there, that overwhelm me. I’m already stressing on how I’m going to learn German as quickly as I can (unfortunately for me, I took Spanish in high school), get medically cleared to move, get passports and map out everywhere we want to explore. Not that most of those things should be stressful but I just feel like I have so much on my plate. Which is definitely exciting in a way but until we are there I feel like there’s just going to be a weight on my shoulders.
In the midst of all that I’m sad to say I need to find a new school. Which is just another thing I didn’t want to worry about right now.
I can’t begin to process it all. We found out with about six or so months to prepare and it seemed like enough time, I remember wishing we could leave the next day. Now I almost want more time, even though I would still stress out just as much. Anyone want to help me fill out paperwork?
