… This a teaser for the work I just finished on my revised Move to the Philippines page. If you haven’t read it yet, you should, at least 90% of the questions I have been asked over the years are answered there. Enjoy…
Not a lot to report today, but things are moving along well. I’ve struck a deal with my son to buy our car … nice for both of us because of the situation we’re both in, so we can drive until moving day and then hand him the keys in return for cash.
Went to our credit union and they were pretty good … didn’t get bent out of shape at all when I told them we were going to move overseas “for a while”. Ordered new checks with the new address, counted up and cashed out a whole bag full of US change Mita had been saving (not any use for US change overseas) and went to Wal*Mart and bought some “stock up” items we know are going to be hard to get.
Tomorrow I better get some of these shiny new packing boxes filled. Must have been all the traveling I’ve done in the military, there’s a good feel about the smell of those new boxes and every time you “square one up” and put the tape across the bottom you think of the new adventure in store. I’m excited.
Hmmm, things to do before the move. How will I ever get a subject like that whittled down to size? Well, no one blog post or series of blog posts will ever handle it all, but let’s see if we can get a start on it here.
Because of the way I am restructuring the site, there will be a dedicated pointer or index page to all the articles in any particular subject, so as posts about the moving process grow, they will always be easy to find. Just click on the “Contents” tab on the top menu bar and the complete guide to all content will open, broken down by subject, then you can click on any individual article to read more. (yeah, maybe someday *sigh*)
One way to cut this subject down to size is to divide an conquer. I have always had good luck with chopping things up into “threes”, so here’s a thought … three “M’s” … Money, Mail and Medical, that is if you want to Move to the Philippines.
