Lets Pretend

I had enough of my present writing hiatus, I think. Life my be crazy, but I think I am crazier still when I don't write at least weekly for my own good. I thought I would change things up a bit and try something new. My kids like to play a game with their friends called "The Question Game" where they spend their time just asking different questions to each other to try and get to know each other better. Sometimes it makes for a good dialogue opener. So, here's my version called:
Let's Pretend
Let's pretend that in two weeks you will be leaving your present country. You will be going somewhere without phone, internet, even reliable electricity. You won't be able to have any contact with anyone back home. You will be going alone and you are not sure if you will ever make it back.

Here's my question: Who would you contact or what would you do over the next few weeks? For argument sake, I will specify that finances are the same you have now (so if flying to California isn't currently an option, it wouldn't be for this Let's Pretend, either. )

So, go ahead and reply in comments. Feel free to share with others and Follow my blog.

P.S. I'll post my answer after a few of you have posted yours!

  1. I'd close out all my accounts for utilities, pack up all the things I would need (with an emphasis on practicality/sustainability/robustness/medical needs), and pretty much dump/donate/give away the rest of the stuff I couldn't bring with me.

    Then, I would visit my family one last time, and cry as I left.
    But, I would do it.

    All this presupposes that I am doing this willingly, and for a valid reason.

    Actually, that was kinda what i did for both Stillwell's.
    But I'm beginning to wonder *why* this subject is coming up at this time, since it came up recently, as you remember.
