Dancing the Limbo

I've been thinking of starting a blog for a while now and have finally decided to adopt Nike's motto and 'Just do it!' I'm in the midst of a real time of transition and want to record some of my thoughts as I prepare to relocate back to the US after living abroad for the past almost 6 years.

We're actually in a state of limbo at the moment waiting to hear what's next for us, but we do anticipate a move back to the states in the next few months (or weeks!...I did mention that we're in limbo didn't I???) Since jumping on the relocation rollercoaster early this past summer a typical conversation with a friend here goes like this...

Friend: So, what are your plans?

Me: Um, well, hmm, we aren't sure but we think we're moving back to the states.

Friend: Oh, where will you go?

Me: umm, well, hmm, somewhere, we haven't been told yet.

Friend: So, when will this happen? When are you going?

Me: umm, well, hmm, sometime, we haven't been told yet. We are definitely maybe going somewhere sometime.

Friend: Ahh.... limbo....that's a hard place to be.

I looked up the definition of the word in my trusty Websters and here it is...'an intermediate or transitional place or state.' Sigh...'tis oh so true.

Cheers, Joyce
