9 days to go!!

Well things are a little mad around here! Boxes everywhere that we keep tripping on and stubbing our toes on (esp Nick!). We are counting the days now and getting organised. Our shopping trip yesterday yielded t shirts and shorts for the girls, a travel bag for Nick and all sorts of other goodies. I ordered loads of Burt's Bees stuff today, sun cream, insect repellent, hand sanitizer etc. My local health food shop loves me at the moment as I have spent a fortune in there on vitamins and supplements to keep us healthy while we are there and to build us up before we go. Much better than inoculations that aren't really necessary. I am nagging everyone multiple times a day at the moment "have you taken your vits?!".

I can't decide what I am most looking forward to. Obviously it is the trill of the trip and the challenge of something new but also having something meaningful in our lives again instead of being consumed by the materialism that is prevalent here in the UK. It is impossible not to be caught up in this rat race. I am looking forward to having time on my hands again. Time to just take a picnic to a beach for the afternoon, time to explore, time to walk, time to try new things. I am looking forward to living a more outdoor life again. I hate being cooped up inside.

I am looking forward to meeting new people, learning a new language and working hard in the ministry and congregation where there is such a great need.

Hi Georgia,
Not sure if you still remember me, a Helium member who competed with you on the Thailand article. We had exchanged emails before when you lived in Clearwater.

I can't believe you already moved back home and are getting ready to move again. I'm excited for you. The islands of PhangNga Bay are gorgeous. Hope to read more about your new adventures!

Sounds like a very good plan for very happy days!
