Ready to leave

Ready to leave? Yes and no! I am ready to move on to the next chapter. Trixy is wrapping up her 3-month stint with her residency program this month. We are ready to move out of our house November 2. We are ready to be "pre-embarkation" for the month of November. Ready to be in Buea the first week of December. We are REALLY ready to sell our house!

At the same time "not ready". In some ways this is how I envision pending fatherhood... 9 months to prepare, but not ready. So many personal questions of preparedness. Questions of the "reality" we will encounter. Wondering if we have "everything" and knowing we don't but not sure what matters and what doesn't. Knowing it will all work out, but not ready to face it - probably...

Still waiting to hear about the work permits. It'll be a major bummer if with the extra time we are delayed. Originally we were being rapidly facilitated through the process so we could depart right after Mission Institute. More things to think about...
