After 3 countries 5 cities in 4 years you would probably think that by now I have mastered the packing-unpacking skill. Unfortunately it’s totally not true. I am still lacking of the sense of the urgency, I still wait til last minute although I know it’s not right. It has been always that same feeling of unsettled that keeps me from moving my ass to get all done.

The other day someone called me a traveling wife. When I heard that I was delighted and felt revalidated. Yes, those are the words! Finally I found the words to describe the other part of me. Finally I am not only a working mom and a blogger. I kind of love the new description: Traveling Wife.
And now, once again I am preparing my travel shoes. This bird is going to fly again.

Honestly at this time I really wish I have a personal assistant just like Giuliana Rancic’s Sarah Knight. It could be awesome to be able to move without having to deal with all the packing – unpacking. But, well this is just a wishful thinking
So I have a lot of things to do. Here’s the list:
1. The kids’ school
They are already approaching the final term of school year. To move them to another school won’t be a good idea. That’s why I am working on this temporary homeschooling program with their current school so that they can finish the entire school year without having to start over in a new school. I am so happy that K and little A are in such a great school that can work something out like this. Later on I will definitely write about this school and recommend it to all of you who are going to live in Medan, Indonesia.
2. Selling the car
This one would be very difficult. I would love to take the car with us but we are moving to an island, a remote one. Shipping a car to that island is nearly impossible!
3. Sorting the stuff
We have never bought complete set of furniture because we always know we won’t be settling for good in this city. However stuffs do pile up. From the kids’ toys, books, shoes, clothes and many more. I need to sort those out like what to keep and send, what to donate, what to sell and what to throw away. I am thinking of doing an online garage sale, but first I need to get the sorting done.
Another thing that is difficult because again, I am telling you we are moving to a remote island.
And as you are looking at my list, I can only manage to do number 1 so indeed I haven’t mastered that skill quite well.
Shoot me with some moving out tips please!
