This morning I woke up and my first thought of the day was a reminder that I was leaving in 5 months. 5 months is both a long time and really no time at all when you consider the scope of the change I'll be engaging in. I'm already racking my brain trying to figure out everything I need to accomplish over the next couple of months prior to leaving and I can honestly say, my brain is on overload.
I'm in the process of selling off some of my appliances to help add some more funds to my bank account and I'm also working on getting maps and such together so i can start learning streets and spots to remember prior to my arrival. I definitely want to be prepared so that I don't allow myself to become overwhelmed when I get off of the plane in my new home. I'm sure I'll be overwhelmed regardless, but the thought of being prepared is a good one.
I am so excited for this opportunity and I will be keeping you all updated on how things are going as we wind down to my date of departure. :)
