Moving forward….

We are finally really moving forward with China! Jon is going to get his offer letter (and sign it) tomorrow morning. At 11:30 a guy is coming to appraise the house. Jon arrives in Shanghai on Saturday and will buy a bed and maybe a few basics for our apartment. He’ll get the keys to the apartment Sunday at 10:00 AM. He has to go to Beijing then, but when he comes back to Shanghai he’ll be staying in OUR apartment. How crazy is that—- we have an address in Shanghai! (although I have no idea what that address is…..)

Speaking of mail, we will have a PO box in Brookings, and twice a week Dak will ship all of our mail to us. So, you can easily mail us stuff paying only the US rate. I’m looking forward to still being able to get my photography magazines and National Geographic. I’m sure you can get it there, but it may be a big search to find in English.

SO – now is the time to let us know if you are interested in any of our stuff. Cars, furniture, beds, chairs, bookshelves, desks, bikes, lawn mower, etc etc etc. Craft stuff, magazines, books, aquariums, plants? We have so much stuff. And we like all of our stuff….. but not necessarily enough to store it for 2-3 years. Uh. We still have a few boxes we haven’t unpacked from the trailer! I hate moving all of my books. But I LOVE books!!! I can’t get rid of any of them it seems. Too bad we are so tied down with all of our “stuff.”

One Response to Moving forward….

  1. Wow, I can’t (prononced with a long “a”) beleive that you are actually moving to Shanghai – it’s crazy. Love to visit in the future – if possible. Having lot’s of fun reading through you plog, my visits are way too random.

    Anyway, working on a card for you which will be posted soon but unfortunally not make it to America neither on Monday nor Tuesday, but be patient…

    Love / Hanna (and Henrik)
