Julia's Rules for Surviving a Relocation

As you may know, Julia and I are in the process of moving to Buenos Aires, Argentina. This move entails a wholesale liquidation of our possessions, the purchase of property in a foreign country, and the possible loss of employment. Yowza!

Needless to say, things have been a little stressful in casa evans. Being a clever soul, Julia's in the processes of formulating some rules that should help us maintain our sanity while we seemingly put everything at risk.

  1. Only one person can e paranoid at a time
  2. Reason first, emotions second.
  3. Move something forward each day
  4. Kepp the big picture in mind
  5. If the ultimate risk is small enough, then jump
  6. Our home is wherever we are together.
  7. We can let go of everything but each other.
  8. Beer, music and beautiful things help.
My additions would be:

  1. Watch Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain or maybe Zardoz. ;-)
