every year June is just one of those months - a busy one.
birthdays, wedding anniversary, school programs - recitals, celebrations, teacher appreciation lunches, buying gifts for teachers, assemblies and of course good-byes.
This is the month when there is an exodus within the expat community. And this time around - we are in the 'leaving group', and so we are even more busy.
there's a million and one things to do, and you just want to grind them out and tick off that to do list - but it's not that simple. Why? because it's all about timing.
The timing of when to give notice to our landlord. when to schedule packing dates, cleaning dates. when to start realistically selling items because you can't do it too soon because then we'll be without beds and bedside tables, maybe even a vehicle.
So timing is the issue right now....When to do what!!
I've armed myself with a calendar, highlighters and a lot of coffee. Because that's what keeping me going!!
But in the midst of it all, if a friend calls and wants to have coffee, brunch or lunch - I'm going. Because to me that is what's important.
Everything is a blurr right now but we'll get there...........
