I am sad today

So sad today.  Packing up the house, I didn’t expect to be doing this. It’s happened so quickly & now the reality is sinking in.  The Syria/Egypt trip is going to be amazing but I wish we could do that and then just come home.  But now we don’t have a home.  We’ve sold all our furniture.  I wonder how long we’ll last in Thailand, and I wonder how long it will take for A to find a job.  But it’s out of our control and what will be, will be.  I heard something I liked the other day.  How do you make God laugh?….. Tell him your plans.

This morning we stocked up our travel first aid kit.  We’re almost all organised now, just need to confirm the last few things.  Sigh.  This is crazy.

To add to it all we’ve all been unwell.  Mainly CJ struggling with his cough, he is miserable.  And I had a fever last night: chills, headache, body ache & then HOT.  But I’m ok today.

Back to feeling sad.  I’m sad because we’re leaving our lovely home.  Saying goodbye to our plants & stuff is hard & knowing we’ll be without our books, toys, clothes etc is tough.  But we are not particularly sad to be leaving the UAE.  There are many things here that are just not OK.  Maybe I will feel better if I write about some of them now.  Will start a new post!
