Confusion.

Before I know, its going to be a brand new year again! The second half of this year has been Crazy! Around June/July, Hd decided he needs a change in his job location and sent feelers out in his company and before we knew what hit us, it was Destination Chicago! (We are still in Zurich. Wait for the full story!) Antu was in tears because she was going to miss her teacher, her friends and the house! Ashu was in her "whatever" mode and I was having a break down! Come August, we told friends about our move,  informed the school that we were leaving in October, gave notice to our house, cancelled all the kids activities, started disposing/recycling/selling/giving away stuff and international movers were coming to give quotes! Friends were even planning farewell parties! And then everything came to a stand still mid october because Hd got another job offer here and he was keen to take it. For about three weeks, we could nt do anything. I was planning an india trip in Oct which did nt happen. Our house was rented to someone else already! I could nt inform the school yet because we did nt know what was going to happen! Sigh! It was pure torture! Hd was walking in egg shells around me because if looks could kill, he would have died a thousand times!

Finally, things fell in place and he accepted the offer and luckily we found another house to rent in the same neighborhood, the school was ok with our craziness, most of the kids activities could be renewed and the girls are extremely happy that we are not moving! But there was no time to rejoice as we were moving houses and the last few weeks were so stressful. It has been two weeks since we moved to this house and finally there are no more moving boxes in the house. Its a very nice, spacious house and Im slowly getting used to it. Antu who was crying buckets that she would miss our old house is much happier here since theres more space to spread her clutter! But everyday she crosses our old house to walk to her school and says hi to it! :)

Never a dull moment in my life but alls well that ends well, I suppose! Also, my friends are still throwing me a farewell party this weekend but they have renamed it "The Not Leaving Party!" Now who would want to leave such friends and move anyway? :)

These posts are like babies, children who look all chubby in pictures. When you see them in person, they are so tiny. Do you get what I am saying!!

You have a brave heart boo! I would have gone bonkers with such a situation ... On the brighter side, I see it this way, Chicago isnt as lucky as it wishes to be :) Swiss takes it all! :)

I also miss my teacher today. In my school days they always guide us well. But due to my behavior I did not learn well. I was so much upset then some of my teacher told me to do blogging Now I say thanks for my blogging teacher who did help in my blog http://guruofmovie.com

Hello! I am a regular lurker here and I was disappointed to hear about your 'move' and then read beyond the first few sentences .. glad you're still in Zurich...I'm newly 'Swiss'-ed with my family and often look to your blog to hear a familiar side of expat Indian life here. Cheers!
