Big news at Fluffy Bunnies. We’re moving.
And I’m not talking about the World Wide Web. I’m talking about the Big Wide World.
This spring, we have the opportunity to move to Romania — Transylvania, to be exact — for my husband’s job. For one year. And we’re taking it.
Yes, Transylvania. Transylvania! (Insert vampire jokes here.)
Right now, we’re steamrolling through a long list of logistical challenges. The kids have passports. The pets have temporary homes stateside. Renting the house, storing the cars, forwarding the mail, mowing the lawn, figuring out the pediatrician appointments, envisioning the Ikea bill … Well, we’re working on it.
If I’m honest, sorting out the logistics is keeping me from worrying. Because I am worried. Can we do this? Are we nuts? And will there be peanut butter??
But I’m trying to remember that this is my one and only life. I want it to be full. Full of adventure. Of love. Of time spent well, not wasted.
So off we go. On our adventure. The five of us. For 365 days, give or take.
More to come. I hope you’ll follow our adventure. And I promise we won’t bite.
Have you ever done anything that terrified and thrilled you at the same time? Do you have any tips for living abroad? And could your children make it a year without peanut butter??
