Give me the green light....I'm ready to go right now

I forgot who sings the song but this song " Green light" is defiently the state of mind im in right now. I was kind of low key since I got the news. I haven't been talking, or reseaching about it or anything really. Now it's becoming real. I'm getting all worked up again. I'm up late on the computer researching, imagining, what it will be like. I know I have some obstacles ahead of me though.I'm nervous about how difficult it will be to teach. I prayed about being a good teacher this year so I will pray again that God give me the strength and patience to do just as well this year. The first one being authenticating all my documents. I'm not even sure how to go about it. I know I have to get them notarised first( instate out of state ? who knows) then I have to go to the secretary of state and get a certification (basically like an apostille)but at least I can walk that in. Then Im going to send it to pro-ex so they an send it to the UAE embassy in DC and then theres some other step. Whew! At least I got my passport today so I scan that! There is just so much more paperwork involved than when I was headed to Korea! My second biggest hurdle will be trying to save a minimum of 3,000 dollars without a job in July and still get everything I need before moving to a foreign country. Then Jason has to prepare his documents and enroll in classes before we leave, and we both want to lose a significant amount of weight! The to do list is crazy!
To top it all off I have to pack up this house and move in with my mom, sister, niece, dad, and hubby in a 2 bedroom house, but somehow I'm excited. I feel like I'm going to have more fun than ever this summer and Im am optomistic about this experience. Just a few short months agao I din't even know what I was going to do with my life. I was deeply depressed too. It feels good to feel adventure on the horizon. This is how things are supposed to be.

and 3 years later!

Ok so it's official. I got my contract! I still haven't recieved my passport or documents back yet though and havent mad the first move towards moving out, although we are supposed to be packed up and shipped out in the next two weeks!There is so much to do and not nearly enough time and I havent really been doing much since the interview. I know I'm going to be all panicky near August so i need to get a move on. I'm just so glad that I finally know what I'm doing with my life again.

To Be or Not To Be...

So, Im waiting 50/11 years to get my official contract from Abu dhabi. I went to Times square and had a great time. My interview was very relaxed and my interviewer said I got the job at the end of interviewer. No Screams yet though. Here it is over a week later and i have still not recieved a contract officially. I have started planning my life around this so i need to get it in the mail now. Until then... we wait.
