7 Months

If everything goes as scheduled, I will be leaving in 7 months. I have a few big things to do yet:

  • Do a number of home repairs
  • Sell my house
  • Sell my car
  • Separate myself from a number of other smaller belongings
  • Find cheap storage my remaining treasures
  • Quit my job
  • Find some type of investment for the proceeds of my house
  • Make sure my daughters are prepared for the next 2 years

The tricky part is -- I will have to do most of this without knowing I am going for sure.

Jay -

Seven months is both a long and short time... Long because it's way too early to do a lot of the planning you'll need to do, but short because if you don't do some of it the last hours will come down on you like a hammer. Right now I'm entering heavy-activity mode as I have to move from my apartment in just under three weeks and I've packed exactly nothing. I'm more prepared than I was last time, I admit, but there's still a world of things to do and little time for them. Good luck, and don't worry too much about getting in/not getting in. You're probably fine -- I only know of one person who was totally denied at the eleventh hour. Most people know by the time they've passed the health review if they'll be going or not. Did you pass it yet? I can't quite remember. If not, wait a little longer to do anything drastic. Peace.

Brian,

I'm still waiting for medical clearance, my guess is it may not happen until July at the earliest - based on info I have learned from othes.
