We are getting toward the end of our first day of packing up our stuff for the move. The moving company has a team of 5 people that plan to be here for two days packing up all of our things that are heading to Singapore with us.
While two days seems like a pretty short amount of time to pack for this kind of move, the packing really started months ago. Since June, we (ok, mostly Melissa) have been cleaning and sorting trying to plan for what we want to go with us and what we want to stay in the house in Texas. It has been a different experience this time trying to plan what to bring. We want to have our favorite things with us while leaving enough in the Texas house so that it is comfortable for anyone staying there.
The word is that the sea freight containers are only taking about 5 weeks to make it from Houston to Singapore, including the time to get through customs. That's pretty good time. Hopefully, we will sort out a permanent place to live in Singapore within about a month and the delivery timing should be just right.
