Moving to France in 24 days
Visa long séjour
The best news is that over the weekend, we received an offer on our house and signed a contract. Now we’re just waiting for the building inspector to come through, and if there aren’t any major problems with our house (God, I hope not!), we’re going to close on June 1. Our buyer said he would only walk away if the inspector found something really bad. I don’t think that will happen.
But wait…. It’s already May 14! June 1 is only 18 days away! I’m not complaining. Just trying to figure out the logistics of the thing. Departure date for us will be June 7.
1. Reserve a 20′ container to be at our house by May 27.
2. Pack up everything in the house, get ready to ship.
3. Purchase one-way flights.
4. Sell my car.
5. Get banking in order.
6. Figure out how to get a long-stay visa (it takes 21 days apparently, and you have to do it in person at the French consulate in Chicago….. and I don’t have all of the necessary documents…)
7. Quit my job…..
I’m not sure how it’s all going to happen, but the important thing is that it IS HAPPENING!
