Dear Sanna - I'm going!

Today I got the final written word I needed - I will be able to obtain a work visa, probably the day I apply for it, so I am officially moving overseas!

Today I sold one of my most prized possessions, my kitchen aid mixer, on craig's list :( It is definitely replaceable, and silly to keep when my mom has one, I can't use it in a different country, and it's very expensive to ship, but I am still sad to see my birthday present from last year packed up in a box and sold to a stranger. Oh well, it's another thing to cross off my list, and as I said, silly to keep. Last night I baked a final, humongous batch of cookies to say goodbye, so now I have a freezer full of more cookies than I could possibly eat before I leave, in less than two weeks!!

Now I just need to sell my car, finish shipping the boxes I've packed (and finish packing the boxes and luggage I haven't started to pack) and give away all the things I no longer want/need/have room for.

Just small things really. My biggest stress is the car, but we will see...
