Busy Bees!

Finally! Something has gotten me in the mood to do all the boring, mundane stuff that needs to get done before we leave, I was wondering if/when that would happen! This little taste of Spring is just what I needed.

What we've been up to:

  • Making travel clinic appointments
  • Organizing/completing our medical kit - which will be awesome thanks to Ron's mom! Seriously, you need surgery, you know who to find ;)
  • Applying for Hullabaloo's Coast Guard documentation - the credit card is charged, still waiting for our papers. Weird, right?
  • Lexie - she has enough stuff to get her own category
    • Planning Lexie's medical kit - which is more work than it sounds like!
    • Getting rabies boosters and titres done for the International Health Certificate
    • Triple checking my double check of needed documents for the International Health Certificate
    • Figuring out just when to send the Pet Import Application to the Bahamas 
    • Calculating how much medication is needed
  • Prepping to rent out house - advertising, cleaning, insurance....this gives me a headache!
  • Ordering more gear - does this ever really end? Don't think so.
  • Losing sleep - Soooooo many things to think about. C'mon, you know this is not Ron, he's passed out cold in a king size bed surrounded by a dozen pillows somewhere in the Midwest with not a worry on his little mind!
Some days my mind feels about like this.


  1. Coast Guard is running at least 4 months behind (http://www.uscg.mil/nvdc/nvdcprocessdate.asp). We just wrote to request expedited service since we are hoping to leave for the Bahamas this week. We sent our packed in Dec 8.

    1. That's what I've heard, I thought sending in the paperwork 5 months before we leave would give them plenty of time to get it done...guess we'll see!
