For all those of you awaiting visas and house sales, please forgive me for this post. I feel totally and utterly miserable today and all of a sudden I DONT WANT TO GO. The shippers have been and packed our house up, which is now an echoing, empty shell, which feels very odd to say the least. In addition to this, we have had to take our dog of 13 years to my sisters (his new home), because we have moved into my sister in laws for the last two weeks and didnt want to upheave him twice.
We all feel totally rubbish and are distraught about the whole thing. Amber had her last day at school today and that too was extremely difficult for her and for us. I just feel that now everything is in place and we are set to go - I dont want to. All the time applying for the TRA, visas, organising removals etc things are too hectic to fully appreciate the enormity of the emotional side of things. We feel bad because we have effectively abandoned him and there is no getting away from that. I just keep telling myself that we are doing this for the benefit of our family, but he too was part of the family and is being left behind. We have two weeks to go before we have to do this with our parents and other family and friends. I am really not sure whether or not we will make that plane.
Sorry for the moan, but I needed it today. For all those awaiting visas and house sales, I hope it happens soon for you all.
