Menu Plan Monday for Nov. 7 – 11

Things have gotten a little busy around here.

In less than two weeks we’re moving out of our apartment, and in four weeks, we’re moving back to the U.S.

In case you’ve never experienced it before, moving internationally is a pain.

In addition to simply packing, you have to sell, give away, and throw away most of your worldy possessions. What you keep, you have to either mail the country your moving to (expensive!!) or try to cram it into your suitcase at the last minute and end up paying overweight fees, because you had more stuff than you thought you did.

In addition to that, there’s the closing of the bank accounts, the terminating of the cell phones, the canceling of the credit cards, the car to get rid of, appliances and furniture to get rid of, etc. I could go on and on.

Fortunately, Hisa and I have been preparing for this move for months. We made a list of everything we need to do each month up until we leave, so that’s kept things very organized and not crazy (well, at least not that crazy).

Nonetheless, the closer it gets to the move, the more things there are to do.

This past weekend, we mailed the last of our boxes to the U.S.; made a final trip to the supermarket; went to the electronics store to ask them how much it would cost for them to dispose of our TV; called the gas, electric, water, sewage, and telephone companies and arranged for those services to be terminated; arranged for our mail to be forwarded; and attended two going away parties, one of which was in Tokyo.

Yeah, it was a busy weekend.

But things are going smoothly, and we’re both excited about the move. Bring it on!

Have a great week!
