…waiting…

March 15, 2012

Are you waiting for us to announce a departure date?  So are we…sorry.

Meanwhile, we are trying to pack, but feeling particularly unmotivated without a specific date of departure.  Matthew and I both excel when we are under pressure and have a time commitment.  We have lists and a start, but we are hoping that tickets will help us to jump into action!

Today we had the opportunity to surprise Matthew’s dad with a birthday dinner and a sleepover.  So far it has been a pleasant evening.  I think Levi is finally asleep and Amelia is dozing in her Far Far’s arms.  “Far Far” is Swedish for father’s father.  We brought a projector and together with surround sound speakers, the boys, including Matthew’s youngest brother, are playing video games that are larger than life.  It is loud, but I think they’re having fun.  And I get to relax!  Woo hoo!

We have been talking a lot about our upcoming life overseas and in a third world country.  While we tell people what we’ve been told about life there, we don’t actually know what life there will be like.  We anticipate certain challenges and situations, but we really won’t know until we get there.  This is actually a source of excitement and peace for both of us.  Not knowing what to stress about leaves us stressless!  The unknown, in this case, is awesome!  I can’t say most people would agree, but we appreciate being able to ask the questions we need answered (such as the availability of formula for Amelia) and leaving the rest for us to discover.  More than appreciate it, we are EXCITED about it!
