Embargo on pets arriving directly into ABZ

One more day down. I called a pet relocation place and got a quote today. Apparently Lufthansa now has put an embargo on pets arriving directly into ABZ (Aberdeen Airport). Fantastic, right? So now if we drive all the way to London ( 9 hrs 45 min), we can get our pets for $3900, or we can have them delivered for $4500. What would you do? I know what Steve did. Sought a second opinion! Haha.

We also talked to the real estate agents today. They need to come to the house tomorrow for me to sign the contract and to explain what I need to do to get the house cleaned, de-cluttered, and set up for staging and photos. The landscapers are also coming tomorrow. I need to get my "before" pictures in the morning! The house will be listed by Thursday so we could have, potentially, viewers this weekend. Tomorrow will be a busy day of meetings, cleaning, and packing. I'm supposed to get my car listed this week, so maybe I'll have some time to take it to the car wash and detail place as well. Oh, and I need to go have my picture taken for the visa. If you are going to be transferred as an expat spouse, don't plan of working at your job long after learning you are moving! I need a clone.

I try to include a positive note on every post, even if it isn't related to Scotland so here it is:

On a happier note, after Kung Fu, Steve, Mama S, and I went to eat at Chili's. 100% of the proceeds from today go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. When I told Steve, he said, "Well, I guess we have to go to Chili's then." He's a good guy. :)    So here we are, messy after Kung Fu, eating at Chili's!


  1. For $600 extra dollars I would opt for them to be delivered to your house... You're going to be tired and busy (and maybe cranky) when you arrive. -In my humble opinion :) Plus, what is the car expense when you get there to drive and get them? Not to mention the hotel expense because you'll obviously need that too.

    1. Guess we'll see. Everybody had different priorities. I would rather sacrifice a bit of money to avoid added stress. :)

  2. One day at a time, and it's all going to be alright. I like you Kung Fu shirts! :-)


I am happy to hear from you!
