Internal Clocks, Part II

Monday, 30 May, 2011

Back in March of this year, I wrote about my internal clock that felt awry. I was complaining that in my heart, mind and feet, basically my body telling me it was time to move to a new state or country.

Did I predict it or what? We’re doing a move to Sweden for six months, providing the biggest concerns of mine are taken care of – a) My husband’s status to apply for citizenship is not jeopardized and b) they take care of housing.

We’ll be living in Stockholm. It ain’t cheap. I know it’s not. Mr Carinae (aka @kaadian on Twitter) joked that I need to get used to Subway sandwiches and McDonald’s as a classy and fancy dinner. *cries*

I have a travel blog that I have to incorporate here. I started it when we moved to India. I do have other pieces and parts of my travels and I have to get it all together. Bleh. Another thing to add to my to do list. Never, all those years ago, when I was a starry eyed graduate from high school and then college, did I ever imagine I’d travel and live in places that people only read about or watch on tv. I’m lucky. I know I am. I don’t take it for granted.

On that note…the rest of this week will be dedicated to Swedish brand nail polishes – Makeup Store and Depend.

I don’t know if it’s due to the lifestyle or my mental state, but I feel like we should be moving again.

When we hit the one year mark here in California last October, something in me went, “We’ll be moving to another state or country soon! I just know it.” Maybe now I’ve jinxed myself. I don’t know. For now, I’m enjoying being back in the Bay Area…even with the humidity that makes my hair cuurrrrrl. Ugh. We almost did move after landing so soon again back in California. We thought Texas (Austin!) was on the horizon. It didn’t pan out and I was a bit saddened, to be honest.
