I have hesitated to post about this, because it’s so fun to tell people in person and see their reaction, but it’s about time to share the news: our family is moving to Santiago, Chile for three years.
Did you just gasp? I’ve pretty much been in a constant state of gasp for two weeks now.
We are still waiting for the final word from Matt’s company regarding “the package”, meaning what expenses they will cover, what the timing will be, etc., but we have made some tentative decisions. One is that we’ll go as soon as possible, since Matt will continue to commute back and forth to South America until we move. Another is that we will sell our home and both of our vehicles.
I am busy getting the house in “showing” condition, pulling together documents for passports and visas, researching schools and neighborhoods in Chile, and just generally trying not to panic. I alternate between excited and thrilled, and worried and anxious, which I think is probably normal.
Anyway, Yay! And do you know anyone who’s looking for a house in the best neighborhood in Salt Lake City?
