Has it really been a week already?

Wow, time flies when you are busy planning your life. Who am I kidding, we've been busy planning for the last several months. But while we've been planning for months, nothing was happening. I can plan with the best of them but I had to wait on alot of things. And, amazingly enough, everything happened in the last week.

Here's the rundown...

Brian's contract is officially up in a few months. We decided we would like to stay through the summer for various reasons and, last week, we received approval for that.

At the same time, we've tried our best to prepare for the move while we waited for approval. That has included looking at and applying to preschools for Marion, contacting our daycare provider for Betti, and looking for houses. We started the process for all of these way back in December and then...

On Wednesday we received word that Marion was accepted into our first choice preschool.

On Thursday we heard from our daycare provider who thinks she can accept Betti but will know more in July.

On Friday we put an offer on a house.

On Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday we negotiated with the sellers of the house.

On Wednesday we came to agreement and went under contract on the house.

It's amazing how everything came together all at once. Of course we are far from over but I won't bore you with all of the details of our move. But needless to say, I have several good reasons for not posting lately! And, while these developments have been excitement, sadness is always right there with it because each step is one step closer to leaving Switzerland and our friends. But I'm trying not to think about that right now... we still have a good amount of time here!

So what did you do this week?

Wow! All I did was keep checking your blog to make sure you haven't moved yet! Now I know why I haven't seen you around!
