My wife and I decided to pick up and go to NZ. We are in the process of beginning the transition.
Investigating the immigration process
the housing market (for selling ours and renting one of theirs temporarily)
implanting and vaccinating the cat and dogs
selling almost everything of ours (tonight I went through hundreds of books and cd's guitar, bass, clothes, etc...)
My wife went through all of her fabric bits and will go through her craft stuff tomorrow.
pushed up my schedule for next semester so I can get my degree in horticulture by May 15th I hope I can handle it.
This week-end I am painting my master bedroom and my brother will be up so I will have him help me put up the yard for the winter.
The NZ Labor Department has an employee that assists in perment residence paperwork and employment seemed very positive and friendly to our cause reassuring Shancy (my wife). So now we only have about 500,000 more things to do before July.
