Finally things are starting to get back to normal. The house is almost in order and there are a few things left we still have to do. My brain is starting to relax  and I can hear myself think again. Now I do not always have to do the things I have to, but also the things I like to do. Right now this is mainly saying my good byes to the friends I made here over the last 16 years.

I have a dinner date every other evening up until we leave. It is nice and sad at the same time. With some people I have a really close bond and I will sure miss them. They have been a big part of my life and I value their opinion and their company. Now I am faced with the challenge of meeting new people, experiencing a different culture, making new friends. I hope I am up to it.
