I am leaving China after 4 years and some months and returning to the USA in under a month to the closest US State to China, Hawaii.
I really don’t believe it and should probably start doing things to prepare for the move. I would like to say it is because of the holidays I am overwhelmed and too busy with that but that would be a lie. We are not traveling and here is the extent of Christmas decorating in our apartment. A Charlie Brown tree with Snoopy ornaments which are probably older than I am made out of creamers by my amazing mother in law, Estalene. I just love these and my first Xmas in China she sent them to me. They make me so happy, love!
So what am I doing? Maybe thinking about it, just reflecting on my past 4 years in China, what I am going to miss, maybe I am singing some Europe Final Countdown and dreaming of if the flight attendants to let me sing Neil Diamond’s America on the announcement system, dreaming of Target and Costco (Oahu has a Costco!), how the Internet is going to work, how I can stream TV and movies and use Pandora, having to get a car, and how do I get money out of China?!?
Sounds like a lot, it is but the real reason for my procrastination is no matter when I do what needs to be done, like try to cancel my cell phone service and attempt to get my deposit back, it is going to be a hassle. Do it now or wait. The headache is the same so why not enjoy my last few weeks and deal with the headaches when I must (or leave it to Todd).
I haven’t been completely useless, I did start another blog for friends, family, and my 6 followers of this blog (small but mighty!). If interested in following my readjustment back to the US and living in Hawaii come follow the adventures. Howz It HI
