I know I’ve been a little remiss to update the old blog lately and I’m sincerely sorry to you all for that.
So, I had a few extra moments today that I could take in all my moving madness to update you on a few things going on.
I’ve been running my butt off trying to take care of all things at once….just like when I was running my butt off to get all the marriage stuff taken care off quickly. And once again, I started to get a little stressed out until this wonderful idea struck my head…
You see, the biggest thing looming over me was selling my things. I had needed the money in order to buy my ticket back home to India….but also because I have so much of my life here that there just seems to be so much to do!
But then, something amazing happened! Without coming out and telling people we needed money instead of gifts for the wedding, they somehow figured it out and we got enough in money gifts to purchase both of our tickets back home to India!!! So, now I know I am going back home. That’s not a worry anymore. So no more need to worry about selling things. Right? RIGHT?
Nope, now I am worried about the cost of shipping some of my items back to India. Mainly my books. It costs too much to ship them. USPS no longer sends cargo via shipping routes. Now it’s all airmailed which is costly. For 66 pounds I would have to pay around $350 smackaroos!!! Now, I’m a big reader and have a large collection of books which I cannot leave behind…so this is a serious problem for me. As I know my books weigh almost 100 pounds. Bleck. One more obstacle to overcome. So back to the researching.
Another thing is my car. I have to sell it before we leave at the begining of October. Yep…you got it…I’ve got less than a month to sell my car. Granted, my car is fairly new, in very good condition and runs great….but it’s a gas hog and nobody can seem to afford the thing right now. So wish me the best on that. I NEED to sell it at a good price in order to pay off my loan on it!
Everything else I’m either selling to friends or donating.
Or trying desperately to fit it into the 6 bags we are allowed to take with us back to India.
Other than that….it’s been a total roller coaster ride and my head is still spinning here folks. So I know it’s been long over due, and I know this is not a good blog posting as it’s rather scant with information….but I promise I will have more soon. Just let me get my Visa and packing and moving out of my old apartment in order…accha? 🙂
Take care till then!
