Should I Stay or Should I Go

March 7th, 2008

Our original expat assignment was to be from Feb 12, 2007 to May 22 in Ukraine and then from June 12, 2007 to June 12, 2008 in India. As you surely know, it’s now March, 2008. For the past ~6 weeks there have been talks of us extending our assignment by an additional 9 months. This would put us home in March 2009. 2 whole years outside of the US. So we’ve been mulling this over for some time now. Chances are good I’ve even talked to you (yes you!) about this very decision. So what did we decide? Or have we even decided?

Did that more link make you feel like you just watched the season finale of your favorite sitcom and you had to wait an eternity to know what happens next! I hope so :)

We’re coming home at the end of May, 2008!

That’s right, we’re coming home ever so slightly early because our Indian visas expire on June 4th and there’s no sense in going through the painful renewal process if we’re just going to leave permanently a few days later. After that we have 30 days of a company-sponsored hotel room to find a real place to live. And then. Ha. And then! A housewarming party like no other.

We’re excited and we hope you are too. See you all soon.

    That’s great news. Sorry, but the mindspelling delay and anxious awaiting of the next page wasn’t quite the thrill I was expecting (you intended) – in fact I didn’t have much expectation.

    We will see you in June and congratulations for both you and Heather in knowing what the next few months will result in and no more mysitery.

    Next time, maybe do two blog entries, the first saying you are staying another 5 years and what it all means etc. and then followed by the real story.

    I think with some coaching you might be able to reach a point where you can publish your writings.

    Love Dad
