We've just finished our first month of our last semester of teaching at FDR. I have been quite sentimental about our last firsts lately, though at the same time, we are looking forward to a new adventure and a fresh start in Japan.
Things are starting to feel more real lately...
We have (almost) of our flights confirmed... our flight from GA to CT, our flight from CT to Japan are confirmed, and I'm quite certain of our Peru to Savannah intinerary (July 3rd) and will have the flights confirmed hopefully by the middle of this week.
We just received the lab results of Flavius's rabius titers and he has an acceptable level to enter Japan! YIPEE! (Though I won't rest until he's in our apartment in Japan - I'm worried that he'll be leaving here without us and needs to get some paperwork done within ten days of his trip, which leaves vet visits and his deportation (?) up to friends and the shipping company.
In moving to Japan, we'll have to downsize. It's a great opportunity to get rid of crap, clothes we haven't worn in years, and things that just won't fit (for example 1/2 of our ovenware - because our new oven measures 42 x 23 x 34 CENTIMETERS - but at least we have an oven).
So, we've taken pictures of the belongings we want to sell to workers and teachers at school. So, little by little we're getting our ducks in a row.
And, we're excited because we have a short week and a long weekend for Easter (Semana Santa). We're roadtripping south (about 4 hours) to Paracas, Peru for a beach weekend. So, I'll post our pics from that trip when we get back!
