And The Verdict is....
read that the "SOUTHERNMOST POINT CONTINENTAL U.S.A." has never seen frost, sleet or snow (although temps did dip into the 40s in 1981 - hrmph). It's going to be weird living some place flat. Evacuating from hurricanes should be stimulating. Yep...a new adventure.
We started going through our things and were kind of amazed at how much stuff we had from our old State-side days - golf clubs, games, inflatable kayaks, exercise stuff, decorative pillows, swim noodles, and artwork. All but the last, finally going on to new owners. We had lots of new stuff too - mostly kitchen. Going, going....soon to be gone. I told Heather, I feel like a snake that's shedding its skin (again).
We have more miscellaneous junk we want to take than clothes, so the challenge will be packing this stuff. The kitties will be getting their shots tomorrow, and their health certificate in a couple of weeks. Hopefully we can find another cat carrier. We're still working on housing. I'm shopping online for a used Mini-Cooper - we'll decide when we get there if we're going for a convertible or hard top (we had a hard top before) and a scooter.
Hash House Harriers group. Almost all of the friends that we're leaving behind on St. Kitts (whaaaa) we met through hashing, and the sooner we can acclimate to our new surroundings the better off we'll feel about the whole move. Michael will be working with Blue Island, Inc. and feels good about getting out from under the anonymity (and politics) that comes with working for larger developments/projects. I'll figure out what I'm doing, once I get there.
