I am Still Here

I apologize for not posting anything for a few weeks. The reason is that on February 28Th we moved. First it took a few days to organize the house, and then it took 2 weeks to get Internet access up and running. I will soon write about the new home and moving experiences. Please continue to come back and give the support you have all shown in the...

Alive and Safe in the Philippines

I made it. Tuesday morning my mom picked me up at home at 630Am in Florida to take me to the airport. We went out for my final goodbye dinner the evening before and after dinner we loaded most of the luggage. My flight itinerary showed my first part of the trip was from West Palm Beach to Vegas with one stop. Well the stop was Chicago. So it was north west to Chicago then wait to empty the plan and wait to reboard the...

My Last Day in America

Well all. This is it. The final items packed. House cleaned out and I just am waiting for tomorrow morning to go to the airport. This morning a frined of mine wrote an article about me and my moving. He is a friend who was also a victim of the housing market as I was. When I worked at an Architectural Office he worked for the Builder/Developer that was my client. With all the slowdown in the Housing industry, he got laid off...

Another Day Waiting for my Trip

It is now Saturday afternoon and I have most of things ready for my trip. All my bags backed. Closets checked, and nothing much else to do. I even went to my hair cutter Isabel for my last American haircut. After using Isabel for a few years, saying goodbye was tough. She always knew how to cut my hair and always had a smile on her face for me. My mom who had used Beauty Parlors all her adult life now has Isabel doing her...

Final Countdown to my Leaving the USA

The countdown is getting close. 3 more days left in Florida and then to the airport. I have all my bags packed except for the last odds and ends such as toiletries and the clothes I have used this week. Stupid me, when I shipped out all my stuff, I never thought about all the clothes I had to bring, so extra bags for all the clothes. Also Elena wanted me to bring my golf clubs so I have a fun activity at times. Fun, well I...

What and Who I am leaving Behind

Well, my move is getting close. My boxes have been dropped off at the shippers, I have my airline tickets and all is set for my December 4th departure. I do not mind the material things I am leaving behind since I am not a very materialistic person. I enjoyed my comforts, and at times I will probably think of them and miss them somewhat. But I have packed a lot of my mementos. I know over time my live will become accustomed...
