Yes, it has been a while. Life has been busilly happening while I’ve been away. Work has been crazy with the new ICD-10 billing coming next October, and so many other things going on in my life right now. Many good things! Two of my nieces had sweet little baby girls, hooray! And, our house is on the market. We have had a lot of interest, but no buyers yet. The selling season is starting to slow down with fall approaching, and if it doesn’t sell by the end of October, we will probably take it off the market and relist it in the spring. We still plan on heading to Portugal, and have narrowed it down to start off in Coimbra. We’ve still been selling things here and there and giving things away, and once our house sells it will be a mad dash to sell everything else. We plan on traveling light, and only bringing things of sentimental value. We don’t really have a lot, because we haven’t been living here that long. We both moved in about three years ago, and we didn’t really have much because we were both justs divorced and left most of the household with our previous spouses. That has made it easier for moving, because we don’t have 25 or 35 year’s worth of stuff to get rid of. And, we just aren’t really like that, being attached to things. I do have some things that are sentimental to me, but they will be coming along.
I wish I had more to write about right now, but we are kind of just in a lull, waiting for our house to sell and living life as normally as we can until then. It’s hard not knowing when we will move because I’m just such a planner. I want to book our travel plans now! But, it has given us time to do more research on things like healthcare, working, visa, etc. I’m trying to learn Portuguese, and it’s a little difficult because I don’t have anyone to practice with. I will get there though!
And for now,
