Countdown begins: 10 days to go in the US of A

And things are getting really hectic. No, I dont mean the US presidential elections, though that is getting hectic too, I mean our move back to India.

Appa and I had a complex system of dividing up the humungous To-Do List we created. We experimented with umpteen different ways of maintaining that list – from plain old pen and paper to Onenote to Web based To do lists. Finally, with 10 days remaining, we figured that we better get started on ticking off some of them. In panic, Appa says : You do everything needed for Italy trip, and I’ll do everything needed here! Gggreeat division of labor I thought – to each the thing he does best. And now I am meandering through a thousand sites trying to book that one perfect place in Rome. At least I did the car rental – whew, 1 item off the tick list.

And so on it goes!! I also managed to sneak in some shopping today, Tee Hee!!

N meanwhile is oblivious to the big change coming up in our lives.  Slight pangs of guilt still happen once in a while when I think that maybe I am denying her some opportunity by taking her away from this land of opportunity – but my usual rationalisation still holds. For N to grow up in a happy home, her parents need to be contented, right? So we are doing right by her in taking a step that we think will bring us contentment. Paah.. so there!!

    Does the To-Do list include settling all the expenses?

    Even I thought of that- N losing out on opportunities,but given the current scenario seems like India is a safer bet!! 🙂 but seriously, you anyway have the option of moving back right? maybe when she is older?
