I don't know if this is the right time to say this but I guess it is official. We are staying here for good. Beginning next year, hubby will no longer be on international assignment. He will join his German colleagues and will no longer be treated as a VA (not the VA as in virtual assistant) as they would call it.
That means we will be here far longer than expected. That would also mean we will no longer have the benefits that a VA receives beginning next year. Although we will have to let go of a lot of perks and move into a smaller apartment in order to save on rental costs, it means for me the freedom to purchase all the household items that I have been planning to buy. I can finally buy some log furniture which I will place in the terrace or balcony. I can shop for that TV stand and living couch that I have been eyeing in the home center. I can finally buy that carpet that I have been saving for. Or that dining table and chair that looked so charming and inviting. And our very own bedroom furniture. I can finally decorate the house as much or as less as I want, whenever I please.
But first things first. We must first find an apartment where we will be putting all those stuff that I mentioned. I just hope looking for a smaller place wouldn't be as tough as it sounds.
