Too Much to Do!

My to-do list grows stronger and longer each day: pack, sell the house, write a book, plan a wedding, and fill out reams of paperwork. This week we get our shots for everything from dengue fever to malaria. Mark makes his first exploratory trip at the end of the month. I feel like he's Christopher Columbus on his way to discover "Latin America."

I'm giving him the quick version of learning Spanish in three weeks (he can count to 100 already). Progress! Today I bought some grade school primers that will help him to start thinking in Spanish.

Although we lived in Sicily for six years, I had to forget my Spanish to learn Italian and now I'm doing the opposite: forgetting Italian to learn Spanish.

There are so many tiny details to attend to: what to keep, what to throw away, and what to store. We won't be bringing anything with us except what we can fit in our suitcases. Today I was slightly overwhelmed with all the pictures we have accumulated over the years.

Lots of decisions -- both big and small -- that need to be made. But one step and a time and we'll get there...our new adopted homeland.

Until next time...hasta luego!
