I haven’t had much time in the last couple of weeks between Christmas, New Year, and all of the stuff for playing with and mixing +The Anthem Archive. Add on top of that all that is happening to prepare for the move and it’s been too much to write about!

So preparations are going well. I painted a bathroom which just leaves one more bathroom and a bedroom to go. I can’t believe those rooms have sat unpainted for over five years! Nothing like needing to rent your house to focus you on getting all the odd jobs done.

Lisa has been photographing everything so that we can post everything that is for sale, and since it really is just about everything, it’s a lot of photos! Not to mention a lot of cleaning and cataloging.

We have pretty much decided that we will not do any cross cultural training here in the States before we go, but we will try to get in a program there. This means that we will be able to move in June. Working back from that we will need to go to Detroit one last time before we leave, so we should be in Michigan the end of May. Working back from that it means we only have about 18 weeks or so to go! Yikes!

One last thing. I’m hoping that I’ll get to go to Chiang Mai for 7-10 days in early March to tag along on some meetings. This will help me meet some people and get acclimated to some of the work I will be doing. It will also be nice to just look around although there won’t be much time for that. It would still make the move just a tad less scary having actually visited first.
