The Countdown Begins!

I haven't posted about this yet because it's just so hard to accept it... We're leaving Hong Kong! I have exactly 30 days left before I take the kids and fly off. We're going to the US first to visit my family while Hubby attends a meeting and a conference elsewhere before we all meet up in San Jose then fly to Melbourne.

Our house is currently under construction, so we'll be staying with Hubby's parents. Boy Wonder has already been accepted by a school near our future house and Hubby is all set to transfer offices. I'm currently finding new homes for all our unwanted furniture and running around buying things I know are cheaper here and would look good around the new house.

I'm trying to keep busy as the days dwindle away because I don't really know how to feel about leaving, again! I catch myself getting just a twinge of emotion meeting up with The Thursday Group for lunch and am amazed I actually had to fight back tears once already. I'm going to be so sad leaving behind such a great group of friends, but I think I'm more sad because I have to start the friend making process all over again. It was so easy forming a group when I moved to HK, I highly doubt its going to be as easy in Melbourne.

And heck, what am I going to call my blog after we're in Melbourne??? From the M to the HK to the OZ? Oh my god, its going to be tough. Any suggestions would be great.

So anyways, I'll try to document the whole mad process of relocation as often as I can. I'm hoping this is the last time I'll have to move!
