With Christmas just a week away and my flight across the Atlantic a few days later, I am beginning my pre-trip freak out… as usual.
I guess this one would qualify as a pre-move freak out. A whole new ball game.
I haven’t even done laundry or dug out my suitcases, let alone started packing.
And I hate leaving home without cleaning my room. So add that to the list.
Even more pressing? I haven’t Christmas shopped much at all. Vince insists that he doesn’t want anything now; that I can just buy him something when I get to Bulgaria. My mom and I, however, really wanted to get some gifts for his parents. Too bad he is useless and can’t give us any ideas on what to get them!
So, if you are reading this and familiar with 60-something Bulgarians, what are some gift ideas that we could get here in the states?
All I can think of are slippers and booze. Definitely two things not hard to find in BG.
I also want to pick up some New Years paraphernalia. When else it is appropriate to make a fool of oneself with party hats, weird glasses, and noise makers?!
My goal, albeit lofty, is the be completely packed and ready to go by Christmas Eve. I want to be able to spend my last few days with my family and friends as stress free as possible. Additionally, I know a certain little 6-year-old who will likely want me to play Wii with her 24-hours per day.
(Mario Kart here we come!)
We’ll see how that goes!
I hope to get a few more posts in before the move, but as you can probably tell, I have a lot on my plate!
On that note, I just want to thank everyone who has commented, subscribed, and stopped by this lil’ ole blog of mine this month.
I am having my best numbers yet and can’t wait to FINALLY be blogging from Bulgaria!
