Sooo Much to Do

Last Saturday I awoke in the middle of the night after a dream that I forgot something really important for England... like a visa application or something. So on the way to the lake to meet Eric's family Sunday we made a list of stuff we need to accomplish this month. It covers 2.5 pages of a legal pad, and we add to it frequently.

Here's a sample of what we've done this week:

*Got biometric scan for E
*Fed-ex overnighted visa paperwork
*Purged all our clothes
*Donated clothes
*Purged books
*Sold books ($57 at Half Priced Books!)
*Got neighborhood permission for a yard sale
*Bought plane tickets for our summer vacation (which took FOREVER but hours of internet searching shaved hundreds of dollars off the price)
*Contacted multiple people at our new school for lots of different reasons

We've also done lots of fun things, too, as we are attempting to visit the few places left on our "Houston list" and spend lots of time with friends and family. For a good dose of irony, my sister (whom I've lived apart from for about 4 years) moved ten minutes away from me. I'm trying to see her as much as possible. I've gotten my first twinges of "wow, I'm not going to live here much longer" and "I'm really going to miss my family" this week. It's a cross between a lump in my throat and butterflies in my stomach.

My response to all this is a lot of deep breaths.
