  • Find a new apartment
  • Throw out stuff we don't need (donate or actually throw out).
  • Figure out the best way to get the cats to our destination.
  • See my family and whatever friends I can in a weekends time (oh best of luck to me, but hell, I'll be back up MA way again, it's not like CA is Mars!).
  • Get a one way ticket to CA (lolwhat, never expected to say that).
  • Get all my doctor stuff on this coast taken care of.
  • Figure out some kind of get together for the people I care about here (hoping that at least two people can be civil).
  • Clean up this apartment completely.
  • Clean and go through old clothes - donate, resurrect, and/or fold.

    Yup, a month. It seems like a lot of time and not enough all at once. So many thoughts on the future of what I'd like to do and so on.

    March 2012 is come back to PA for Jen's wedding.

    Potential future plans for FF considering that is close to where my family lives, so making a pilgrimage to CT and then jaunting up to MA isn't so bad. Need to get my butt down to FL again.

    Other than that, start helping other people plan trips to the left coast to hang out. And get used to the chill atmosphere of the East Bay area. This is going to be a grand adventure. Right now I'm focusing on being excited, not scared. :D

Oh wow. What prompted the move to CA?

E's job wants him out there and they made it worth our while, so to CA we go.

Yay excited! Yay for not scared! You still have that Shawl of Protection I gave you, right? :)

Looking forward to seeing you this weekend!

I'd love to make a physical representation of the Shawl of Protection. I still have it. Can't think you enough. *hugs*

Looking very forward to seeing you too!!

Maybe this is something we could design together?

Wishing you the best of luck with your big move. You may be able to take the cats on the airplane. I think they only allow 1 cat per person and they limit how many are on one plane per cabin. There is a "pet penalty" that needs to be paid as well and you need a carrier that will fit under the seat in front of you. I have flown with Rune from Japan to DC and from DC to Kentucky previously.

I would say for one-way tickets, I would say look at Southwest, but I'm not sure they allow pets. I've sometimes bought a round-trip ticket and not taken the return trip because it was cheaper.

I've been looking into the cats on the plane thing. The other option is go with a professional service, which I'm still unsure of. It could work out better in the long run. I think either way I should try to find a direct flight, which seems to be a rare thing from Philadelphia, go figure.

A direct flight would be good, but Rune and I did a multi-legged thing on the way from Japan. I think we were in transit for close to 24 hours with a flight from Akita to Tokyo to Detroit to Dulles. Wish you the best of luck!

On a personal thread I just realised I won't get to see Lansdale or anything there ever again.

If we're not in Lansdale, why would you want to be here? This just means a new place to explore and new adventures to be had.

Of course I know that. I just have happy memories there and liked the area too. But if I ever get to visit in the new place am sure it will have its own happy feeling too. Lansdale had a nice feeling about it that I will always remember is all.

Eek! I had forgotten about this whole crazy coastal moving thing, but now that you mention it, your timing couldn't be better! It looks like I may be able to move to BC (our left coast) come November, and since airfare seems to be cheaper out that way, visits become more likely. Woohoo! I mean, it's only been fourteen years since I first met E on #furry and several years that we've known each other. ;)

Anyhoo. Good luck with it all! I wish I could come help with the packing & purging, though I also wish one or both of you could come here and help me do the same. ;)
