So much to say and yet so little

15 Jun

Maybe I am still jetlagged and really tired out with all the travelling this week.We have been on 4 different flights this week – 3 of them international , and I for one  won’t be disappointed if we don’t even see an airport for atleast a few more weeks.

So what did we do and where are we? We returned to the US from Malaysia earlier this week, spent four days in NJ jetlagged but working and caring for toddler and repacking . We then caught another flight today to Texas to spend the next 7 weeks,  before we make our way to……. wait for it, San Diego, California! Yes, that is where home will be for the next few years. I will post again soon about the decision we made to end up there but I can finally say I am excited.

We are in Texas right now for my work and for us to pack up the remains of our life here from 2 years ago – a quarter of our household in packed boxes and our car.We are staying in a sort of extended stay hotel and the room is heaps nicer than the Malaysia one – and we have a kitchenette and stove.

I am exhausted from being up since 3 am today for our flight, unpacking to some extent here, meeting friends and prepping to start work in person here tomorrow. Its nice to be back in Austin, with Bandar and the husbadoo in tow this time – Austin will forever have a part of my heart. That said, life is chaotic as we try to make this new hotel room home for a few weeks, work through other logistical issues and come up with childcare solutions . But the most important thing of all is that we are together and going through it with each other. The rest of the stuff will work itself out as we go through each phase of this journey together this crazy Summer – East coast to Asia to South Central and finally the last leg in a few weeks to the West coast (home! – still feels weird to say that!). Thanks for following along here!

    Umm…Hi there! Don’t know how to say this but I’ve been a lurker here for a while now… Had to de-lurk and say hi now that you’re moving to the same city 🙂

    A little bit of intro since I don’t have a blog to point you to, my husband and I’ve been living in SD for over 7-8 years now, juggling life with two sweet boys (ages 6 and 1.5y), full time jobs and lots of other fun things.

    Hope you like sunny San Diego as much as I do. And would love to be of any help if you need.
