this whole move thing is getting slightly frustrating; it’s not the move itself it’s the standing still. there’s only so much i can do but i want to get it all done now. we’ve been assured that chiang mai is the place, but we’ve yet to get our visas. and reading other blogs it might not be all that easy to get one. bh has applied for his and we should hear pretty soon – then the kids and i will apply. i did learn something interesting on another blog. now i want to get all the bill paying figured out – and i don’t even know what kind of bills we will have. we’ve still got 9 months – and in my mind i think i should be accomplishing something every day so that we’re not in a frenzy when the time to move finally gets here. oh, and the possible trip to chiang mai over thanksgiving is no longer a possiblity. maybe spring break…
i pulled up my original to do list so i could see how far i’ve gotten…
get passports for me, tb, lb and ff.
- visas – bh’s is applied for then we do ours
- figure out what to take and what not to take.
- sell a bunch of our stuff – i’ve sold the first thing and other stuff has been claimed
find homes for the dogs. (we’ve got three, anyone want one?)
- get the house ready to sell – again. (it should be easier this time.)
- find a realtor.
- sell the house.
- get answers to our questions.
find a school for the kids– this is done, just have to get applications in and see if they get in
- find a place to live.
spend countless hours on the internet researching things i’m not sure about– this one i’m having no problem with
that’s some progress.
