Ok it’s actually 9 days, but close enough.
We leave for England on July 15, and as the last few days go by it’s really starting to feel a lot closer now. It certainly feels more real when you start to have those “last time you’re going to see your friend” get-togethers, like I’m starting to have now.
Most of our jobs are done now. We’re going to do a “mock pack” this week to make sure the stuff we’re taking doesn’t go over the allotted weight that we’re allowed to bring on the plane. If it does, Heidi’s rock collection is staying behind.
We also need to sell the car, so if anyone is interested in a 2000 Honda Odyssey minivan with 200k for a reasonable price, let me know. Geisel, I know you’ve been eying our trendy ride – now’s your chance.
Another one of my jobs – to set up a blog – is now done. As with all well-intentioned blogs, expect reasonably heavy traffic to start, followed by a tapering down into something more manageable. The URL is easy to remember: blog.goetz.ca; it should be a handy way to keep up with us.
