And so it begins......the paperwork

So apparently getting your dogs to Italy is harder than it sounds. I'm slightly annoyed at the moment that I ok'd a rabies titre on Cadbury in a panic only to find out that we didn't need it........$450 later. I seriously wanted to throw up when I heard it was unneccessary. Other than that minor mishap everything seems to be trucking along.
Richard's HR is all over the move and we are hoping to move to a little place south of Milan. We've actually found the perfect place, it has a backyard and everything, but we have to wait for Richard to be over there now!! Hopefully he goes next week sometime. At least we're not going to have to be apart as a family for the full 6 weeks now though. By the time he gets over there it will be more like 3 weeks! This is assuming that Reese and I go mid-August. We will be leaving then unless my great aunt needs chemo/radiation and if she does we will stay to help her out.
We have been using an estate agent named Maria and she seems very helpful so far.
Richard got his medical done today and I ordered all the replacement certificates that I need to get my British passport since this will make staying in Italy much easier for all of us! Reese will get hers too at the same time.
The Italian lessons have stopped, I REALLY need to focus on this or I'm going to have a self-inflicted meltdown when I get there and can't speak to anyone!!!
We are now in the process of selling off everything that doesn't need to be stored or taken with us :) Fun fun

Karen is right - you'll get it all done! Glad the British passports will be a help too :)

About Me

My photo
Milan, Italy
I am 34 years old, married to my wonderful husband Richard and mother to a beautiful 8 year old daughter named Reese. We lived in the suburbs of Calgary until January 2010 where I worked as an ER Nurse. Then my husband was transferred to Vancouver for a 6 month temporary project. Our blog Tripping over the Sidewalk told all about our adventure living on the 30th floor of an apartment building in the middle of downtown Vancouver. Then we moved to Milan, Italy for 18 months, Ciao-Eh was the online forum for our Italian adventures. We moved to Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates in January 2012 and lived there for two and a half years. Sandscrapers, Souks and Sand is the blog of our adventures in the Middle East! We are now happy to be back on a little acreage just outside of Calgary where I'm sure more adventures await!!!!
