You may be wondering why I've been so quiet lately. Well, we've just found out there's a very high chance we'll be moving to Melbourne Australia in the VERY near future. My Husband has been interviewing for a position there and is about 90% hired. He's flying out there to finalize and meet clients and whatever other stuff he does in his job that I tend to glaze over when he talks about it as it's technical engineer computer stuff and involves a lot of numbers and other stuff.
This has been very aggressive; he was notified on Friday he'd be getting a call on Monday, Monday was told he'd have a telephone interview Tuesday, Wednesday was told they wanted him in San Diego for Monday for one week and then Melbourne for two weeks to meet clients, team and start visa application - giving him very short time to get packing ready and have a haircut, The job is to start in May. Six weeks.
Now, we've discussed it and have decided that we want the kids to finish out their school year, which takes us to middle of June. Husband will start his job, we'll finish up here, and I'll sell the house. It was what we'd planned ages ago anyways, and now seem like the best way forward.
Having said that, I think I'll take a break from the bento blog until we're resettled in Australia - so long as nothing bad happens. There's just so much to do and so little time. I'll of course, keep the blog up for archives and I absolutely intend to come back to it, as it's been amazing fun.
Wish us luck, and I'll see you...in the Winter. (I just got through winter, for goodness sake.)
