I just have to wait a bit longer

date

It has now been 9 months since my husband and I decided to uproot our kids and move to Italy for a couple of years. We have just over 2 months to go.

I have a partially highlighted checklist scribbled on an A3 piece of card that has been stuck with magnets on my fridge indicating all the things left to do before we leave.

Some tasks were highlighted so long ago that the fluorescent yellow ink has faded to a dull nondescript lifeless colour.

We have been working methodically through our checklist for a while now. What is left are things we are unable to complete just yet.

We just have to wait a bit longer.

I could go and clean out my wardrobe …… but I still need things to wear over the next couple of months.

I could pack up my kitchen appliances ….. but as soon as I do I’ll need them.

I just have to wait a bit longer.

Can’t move any furniture …… it is all still being used.

Can’t pack up the kids belongings …… they need to keep a sense of normality especially with exams looming.

I just have to wait a bit longer.

I could pack my bag to get an indication of weight ….. but who knows what I will actually take on the day.

Like a cat on a hot tin roof, can’t wait to get moving.

75 days 4 hours 1 minute  56 seconds ……. I just have to wait a bit longer.
