The Other Party's Election

Will may be having his election ... (sorry, laughed a little as I said that with a stereotypical Chinese accent)... but our primary has been decided. On Monday morning, I'll turn my notice into Cemex, announcing my resignation effective Feb 15, 2008. My first day on the job will be Feb 18 with Northland Resources. We'll eventually move the whole family to Sweden, probably around June/July. We will live in Lulea, Sweden and my new job is Senior Manager - Engineering.

We're all excited, a little nervous, and now trying to figure out what we've done. Selling or storing nearly everything we own... we will have a house, 2 cars, big screen TV and other misc items up for sale. Let us know if you need anything! We will announce more details as soon as we know more.

Wow, I have some wave of emotions (plural) thinking about this! happy, sad, nervous, jealous...and on and on. How long is the contract in Sweden?
I think we need to arrange a family bon voyage party before you all go to Sweden!
Congratulations!

Thanks Sarah...

No contract, no required stay with the company, the only stipulation was that I gave 3-month's notice. If I quit, I'll have to find my own way home. If I lose my job or get bought out, then we get a paid ticket home. So, at this point, we're looking at 5 years and then see what happens after that.

Party sounds like fun to me!
