Oh my god oh my god oh my god kept running through my mind when I heard the news. What have I done? Is it really real now? Are we really moving?
Oh yes, it’s real! It is happening!
the big announcement
We are moving to Mexico. In less than 2 months, but more on that later! We only had three months notice.
The process has seemed so long and so slow. Now that I can actually write about it, I don’t even know what to say. When I wrote Would You Move Abroad back in November, 2017, we were pursuing the opportunity to move to Mexico. In the past, a potential moving abroad opportunity dissipated into nothing. I didn’t know if that would happen again. It has all worked out and we are moving! My husband’s company is transferring us there and that will make this move far, far easier than it otherwise would be.
But it’s still scary. So scary.
And exciting. So exciting.
I am anxious about leaving our families (I do have a bit of travel anxiety, which is somewhat explainable by a few things that happened in the past). We will also be coming back in a few years.
No, i don’t speak spanish yet
Never did I dream of moving to Mexico. Even thoughts of moving to France were quickly dismissed when they dared to cross my brain (I took French through college, though I’m not fluent).
Even though we pursued this opportunity and have known about it for several months, nothing was set in stone (obviously, being a work thing, there was an interview process. You can’t assume that it will fall into your lap).
I’ve started going through household items already. I am working on securing foster homes for our pets (leaving them is very difficult) and I’m also looking into whether we can bring our dogs. I am hoping it all goes smoothly!
the Process of moving
My husband already took a preliminary trip to Mexico. The whole family will take a trip to go house hunting sometime soon. Then, we move. This is all happening in a timeframe of three months. All while getting the house ready to sell in the meantime. Yikes!
Life is amazing, really. Sometimes those unexpected curve balls are awesome!
Would you ever move to a country you’ve never been to before?
Since this post was written, we have visited Mexico to choose our residence. We have a place to live! Stay tuned for further adventures!
