Are we moving to the U.K.? Great Britain? or England?

Ducky: “I’m confused. Are we moving to the U.K.? Great Britain? or England?”

It is official. We will be moving from Israel in early January, just under the 2 year mark (Wow! 2 years already) and will be in London by the end of January (Tim’s start date is Feb. 2). But before making the move to England, we first need to go to the U.S.

Like most events, it is all a whirl wind/roller coaster ride. Here is a list of everything that needs to be done:

  • Tie up loose ends in Israel, prepare to move, and pack!
  • Fly to NYC, finish the last steps of the visa process
  • Visit Tim’s family
  • Fly to TX to ship our stuff from storage (Plus coordinate our stuff in NY & CA to be shipped as well)
  • Fly to London
  • Start the next Phase… finding an apartment, unpacking, and culture shock!

We are definitely looking forward to this next adventure. We are thankful/blessed for the crazy life we live, but the process of moving is daunting. I’ll be happier looking back on the move, than experiencing it!

In other news: Timothy will be attending NIPS conference in Montreal in December and my dad will be visiting me in Israel! Tim and my dad’s trip will overlap, so I will only be alone for a couple of days, which I’m so thankful for.

Bonnie Mann update: Timothy’s mom started a new treatment last week. However, she is also battling a bacterial infection. Please pray that the antibiotics will work and for the new treatment.

Also, a very good friend of mine mom was diagnosed with stage IV cancer last week, and it just broke my heart. Like my mom, surgery is not recommended. I pray that there will be another option for her.

Holiday plans: In Israel, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and even New Years are just another day. But, Timothy and I have Christmas music, movies (thank you Netflix), a few decorations, along with Stuffing mix to help us celebrate. This year, our Christmas wish is a cure for Cancer. In the season of giving, Timothy and I ask that instead of a gift for us that you make a donation. Life and family is so much more precious than toys and gadgets. However, Christmas just won’t be the same without the traditional gift of underwear and socks from my mom.

We are one step closer to graduation.  Yesterday, Timothy submitted the final paper work for his dissertation, and I passed my oral exam. To celebrate Timothy and I ordered our Aggie Rings! For those of you who don’t know, getting your Aggie Ring is a HUGE deal! You can’t just buy one. You have to apply for one, and meet the eligibility requirements- then you pay for it! J

As new comers to A&M in ’07 we didn’t get why the rings were so special, but after 5 ½ years we get it. The best part is we are the class of 2012. Our rings will have a 12 in the middle, and not only will it represent our class year, but also the 12th Man spirit. We will get to pick up our rings the day of Graduation.

On December 14 @ 2pm, Timothy will be walking across the stage in Reed Arena, wearing his brand new Aggie Ring to receive his diploma and to get “hooded.” If you would like to watch graduation online, we will send out a link that will stream graduation live.

In other news, we plan to move out of our apartment the week after graduation (around Dec. 21). We have not planned out our route yet, but somehow we will end up in NY to drop off our car before we fly to Israel.
