we're moving back to Berkeley!  
....on Monday.

Yes, this coming monday. We got the confirmation on Friday.

It's a major squee, of course. But guess which household resembles a distraught henhouse right now?

(btw this is why Stone Telling will be Delayed.)

Good luck and happy moving!
shweta_narayanshweta_narayan on January 28th, 2015 02:03 pm (UTC)
Thankya! :) You know how it goes though, even the smoothest move means the next few days are ordeals.

oh HURRAH! good luck, and may the airports be kind to you...
shweta_narayanshweta_narayan on January 28th, 2015 02:09 pm (UTC)
Thankya! I think the airports will be the least of my problems, it's more "packing up the apartment enough for movers to take the right things away by friday" that's knocking me flat right now.

Wow! A week's notice? Less! And you guys are not even in the military!

I am so glad you will be back in California!!!!
shweta_narayanshweta_narayan on January 28th, 2015 02:12 pm (UTC)
Not quite a week's notice - we did have an unofficial yes in December, we just were limited in how we could act on it. And the official yes was Fri. the 23rd, and we're leaving Monday the 2nd, so that's like. 6 whole working days in the UK! (5 in the US) for us to sort paperwork things out. Plus bonus two weekends for fretting.

being in your time zone will be lovely - but you know me and LA; any chance of you coming up to the bay area this year?

Oh wow! I hope that works out really well for you!
shweta_narayanshweta_narayan on January 28th, 2015 02:24 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I think it will once we *get* there. And find an apartment (argh flail) It's just getting the stuff there that's so hard.

Material possessions are a problem. But then so is not having the health care needs. sigh.

I KNOW RITE
and there is paperwork, holy ship is there paperwork, and 6 working days (really 5, monday flight is early and friday we got the notification after working hours here) to get it all sorted.

After which there will be finding me a doctor there *sigh*

Since you are squeeing, I take it this is a desired and pleasurable event! If you need any help on the Berkeley end, just holler and if its within my capabilities I'm happy to pitch in.
shweta_narayanshweta_narayan on January 28th, 2015 02:39 pm (UTC)
It IS it's just getting there that'll be hard!

No clue about help, but where are you based? We'll be staying at Eve's till we find a place. Would love to hang out if you're around and health allows!

Safe journey and soft landing! I hope it's wonderful!
shweta_narayanshweta_narayan on January 28th, 2015 02:40 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm sure it will be once we get everything sorted. It's just. getting everything sorted.

Woooot! Good luck with the move!
shweta_narayanshweta_narayan on January 28th, 2015 02:41 pm (UTC)
thankyou :) I'm looking forward to Berkeley's way lower smoking rates and ability to actually go outside without risking the next week+

But meanwhile ack so much to doooo *runs around in circles*

...metaphorically. I haven't actually made it out of bed yet. Overdid it too many days running.

Yay! Hoping the packing and moving go smoothly and wishing you safe travels.
shweta_narayanshweta_narayan on January 28th, 2015 03:02 pm (UTC)
Thankya dear! So far things have been smooth, but it's still been wiping me flat. Here's to surviving till I'm over there :)

May you have a smooth and entirely boring move!

(Sorry we never found ourselves in the same space to say hi while you were comparatively near, but such is life on the internet.)
shweta_narayanshweta_narayan on January 28th, 2015 03:03 pm (UTC)
Thank you! (I haven't been well enough for much anyway tbh. All else aside, going outside has had such a high chance of cigarette smoke & me getting even sicker. So WFC aside I've really only seen friends who could come to me)
(Deleted comment)
shweta_narayanshweta_narayan on January 28th, 2015 03:07 pm (UTC)
Thankyou :) And with luck & a bit more health I may even start making it to cons you're at and actually get to see you again, which would be lovely!
