Leaving China

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

    Can’t believe it has been that long! I’ve enjoyed your posts and learned one very important thing. I NEVER want to visit China!

    I am with Shelli – fun blog that has taught me a lot but mostly that I was not meant to go to China. and I am convinced there are more than six of us that followed you….

      China is tough stuff at times but an experience I am so glad to of had. You are right.. there are more than six… I didn’t count my family who I signed up and they just get emails from my automatically. They don’t know how to remove themselves so I felt that is wrong to claim them as followers 🙂 Happy holidays. Hugs!
