It has not hit me yet, or has it, already!?

Hey how are y'all doing? This is what I have been doing and how I have been feeling lately about the whole moving-out-of-the-country thing.

My summer just started and along with it the loooong process of emptying the appartment. My DH left really early this morning. I am already missing him tons!In the mean time I am sitting in a cybercafe because we terminated our internet and cable contract... sooo... after a long day of moving things around our apartment ... I am tired, girls.

I am also very happy. Seems like all those months of preparations have been worth the stress it caused. Things are happening very fast now and everyday doesn't seem to be enough.. but ohhh well... just like what Bobby Marley sed to sing "...everything is going to be alright, everything is going to be alright, everything is going to be alright..."

For now I am looking foward to see my family at the end of this week, enjoy them as much as I can and... this is going to be crazy but I am looking foward to meet our buddies Bernadine and Henrique! yes.. they are comming to town all the way from Islamabad... Yipee!!!

Okay, I am running out of time here, so I am going to be leaving soon. Just wanted to drop a line or two about what I have been doing.

Have any of you moved from your country? I would love to know about your experience. The only thing that I have to say for now is that it feels good, it has not hit me yet that I will be leaving my country, my town, my home, my family, my friends ( sighs) or maybe it has already!

A new Life In Pakistan!

WOW! can't believe such a long time has passed since I last posted anything. Sorry about that!

Well, I am writing to let you know I will be absent for a while. Our tiny little family is moving to Pakistan. Yes, I know it sounds crazy but we do really believe it will be not only a big culture change but also a great and positive experience. We will go to a place we are both going to learned about the culture of, since none of us have lived in that area of the world.

I was soooo busy making last minute cards for friends, packing and finishing the school year that.. I barely had time to put up any pictures of my latest creations.

One of the things I will miss the most,besides all my family, the good company, the yummy stuff, and magnificent weather, is the scrapbooking club at Scrap-it! Could it be that there are card makers or scrapbookers or paper artists in Pakistan? that will be my next reasearch project.

So, please bare with me as our journey to a new home starts in a week (it actually started at least a month ago). I will post some pics of our soooo-empty apartment soon.

Hugs and thanks!
