This is a rush job of a blog, as I am working on the final days of my employment, lining up some small projects for the near future and trying to successfully plan and execute moving my wife and I back east
I will tell you right now, the future is bright, opportunities are piling up and the next 9 days are going to be completely stressful.
As many of you have read, Juliet and I are moving to New York state. The date of the flight has been set and as of February 3rd, 2011, we are out of California.
Our way to Corporate Housing in New York has been established and we have our destination for the next 6 months. And while it might seem as though we are getting things pretty easy by having movers, corporate housing and such, if I had my choice, I think it would be easier to plan the entire move in a few weeks, rather than the small pieces I have to attack in the next week and a half. This is where things get a little stressful for me.
In addition to working until Friday, January 28th, we have a few other important deadlines we have to meet before we leave:
- My car is being shipped out on Monday, January 31st.
- Anything we need to have back in NY that we cannot carry on the plane with us, will need to be shipped via UPS by Friday, January 28th.
- If we can’t take it on the plane in checked luggage, it needs to make it into the January 28th shipment
So the first item does not create too much of a problem, we can be a one car family for a few weeks while my car is in transit. The second item is what is making things a little nuts. In addition to working, we are trying to do our best to spend as much time with friends and family before we leave, which gives us on average about 1-2 hours a day to take care of our task list before we leave.
Should not be a problem, except our task list is rather long and requires some serious man hours, preparation and planning.
