I’ll be on the plane in exactly 14 days [unless the German Postal Service effs it up again and doesn’t deliver my documents and passport – but let’s just not think about that slight possibility].
Wow, it feels so surreal. I will be running around like a headless chicken trying to get everything ready in the next two weeks.
If I promised anyone of you to get together for some coffee or anything – please be patient with me and let’s just see if I can squeeze you in some time next week. Don’t take it personally, if I don’t have the time to do it. This week is crazy already and I’ll be pretty much gone every day!
It’s funny how I had sooo many weeks to prepare for this and now it still hit me like it was a BIG suprise! I think it’s just that the whole anticipation for the visa interview and the nervousness about its outcome has kept me from really thinking about the fact that I’ll be moving to the US in two weeks. For good [at least temporarily ;)]. As a permant resident.
You might have to remind me of this fact in the next two weeks again and again, because I won’t believe it until I have finally passed the immigration officer at the port of entry. Then, everything will be REAL.
