Well, we're almost finished with our Italian Adventure....and will be movin' on to the next chapter, our German Life, early tomorrow morning. Thomas has been frocked, and has cleared the unit. We finally DID get our travel money (fancy that! *eye roll*), and cleared housing without really even having the house inspected. (Makes me wonder why I bother to kill myself clearing these places when they never take the time to admire my handiwork!!) All these months of prep work, list-making, stress...and then in the end, everything goes by so quickly. Weird.
The things that were great in Italy were really great. The things that weren't as described in the "brochure", were pretty awful. But we've survived it all, intact as a family, and leave here with the confidence that we can handle whatever comes next. Hopefully what comes next is an easy, uneventful trip to Graf, a short hotel stay, quickly signing for our house and the equally quick arrival of our household goods!!! That's not too much to ask for, is it??? Didn't we earn some cosmic, Karma points after our last move?? (please!?!?)
So it's off we go...over the Alps, and into the Bavarian region of Germany!!! I will, of course, keep you posted! All prayers and well wishes gratefully accepted!
