Last night in WV… for a while

I am soo lucky to have such amazing friends.  We went out Saturday nite to listen to some friends of ours play and celebrate the upcoming adventure.

It was a great way to end our last night in Huntington.  Even my sister came out with us.

Sunday evening… thru a semi-blizzard… Ang and Dad drove Seth and I up to Columbus.  I sit now in the airport lobby waiting for our early morning flight.  I could use a plethora of emotions to describe how I feel right now… excited, scared, nervous, joyful, determined, sad, proud… not one particular word fits right now.  It will be one day before we are in Korea and I still have no idea what to expect.  Change is always scary but I think Seth and I are in for the time of our lives.  :grin:

Think happy thoughts for us.


Just to let you know… we made it to Sanbon safely!  Our apartment is cozy and we’re unpacking stuff.  I’ll post pics soon of it all.  :razz:

12 hours of hard labor

We spent 12 hours non-stop today (minus chinese buffet dinner) packing, boxing, moving and dealing with our Dads.  Thank goodness for good daddies though.  They brought their trucks and helped lift all the heavy stuff that I can’t lift.

It´s Okay:!:

My dad is really sad that I’m leaving.  I guess he’s having trouble letting his little girl grow up and make her own decisions.  It’s not like I’m leaving forever…. just a year, with a week visit somewhere in the middle.  In the long run, this year will benefit me greatly.  Saved money, quality time with the husband, world experience, easy access to travel around Asia… the pros definitely outweigh the cons in this adventure.  Honestly, I get more excited the closer it gets.  It’s going to be amazing!  :razz:

We are still trying to arrange for O’Siris to go with us… I just hope all the paperwork comes thru in time.

New life, new blog

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me
For I must be travelin’ on now
There’s too many places I got to see

Since I’m going to be moving to Korea, I wanted to make sure that I had a way to share my experience with everyone.  Right now I’m surrounded by boxes and I’m exhausted from packing.  I hate moving.

Life is an adventure and I’m trying to make the most of everything.

Spiral again

My brain feels about like that picture.  We leave in 2 weeks!!!

Oh, and I hope you get my blog site title.  :smile: Octopus and Fish heads.  Food has been my biggest concern through all of this mess.  What will I be eating?  Will I find enough gluten-free food to satisfy me?  I am afraid that I’ll have nothing but fish heads and octopus to eat when I get there.  I am hoping to be proved wrong.  I’ve heard that I’ll either love it or hate it… no in between.
