Thanks so much for the thought you put in to this. I really appreciate it. I gather you also spent some time living abroad in Sweden, or perhaps you're still there? You're right that I was familiar with the things you mentioned, as I lived in Gothenburg for 2 and a half years previously, but I'm always receptive to friendly advice and pointers. You're also right that I'm going to love it! {#Hearteyes}

There is indeed a challenge with the isolating nature of remote work. I've been working out of a coworking space here in Ohio, and I plan to sign up for one in Gothenburg shortly after I land. It's really an invaluable service for a remote worker like myself. 

I recently revived my blog about expat life in Sweden; I'll send you a link in a private message in case you'd like to check it out. Perhaps I could port some posts over here to RP journal entries! Again, thanks for your support. Skål!

Pep talk although you must know much of this:

You will love it. You know you will.  Sure there will be stressy things and there will be sucky things but they will be new and exciting stressy and sucky things. To go with all the new and exciting cool things.

Don't worry about the winter darkness - get outside for as much sun as you can and being at that high a latitude, when the days are getting longer you can practically feel it from day to day. Just remember to drink a lot at midsummer to last you through the next half of the year. 

The US does not officially recognize dual nationality but they do recognize it in practice - something to keep in mind if you will become eligible for Swedish citizenship.  Just investigate the rules carefully first. What would be cooler than to be a citizen of the world?

I imaging remote work will make a bit of a challenge to keep from getting isolated but just prioritize meeting people. I need to do more of that since I moved 5 years ago and don't really know a lot of people here. But you are at a different life stage.

One of my dreams is to kayak through lakes, rivers, and canals across Sweden from Goteborg to Stockholm. I think it would be a great trip.

Heck, now I'm getting excited for you.  Let us know how it's going.  I'd love to see some journals.

Thank you , everyone...most sincerely!! 

and mrs hobie, yes, they will understand if I have to call in tomorrow....but they will still have to take a day of paid leave to pay me for tomorrow IF that happens.
I don't want to take tomorrow, because that paid leave is a day that I will need to save for after my surgery....I am running very low on those paid days off at this point, and there won't be time to earn enough hours between now and then ( I earn less than 2 days of paid leave per month, and have been having to TAKE two days per month for chemotherapy, not to mention all of the days I took in December and early January for testing and doctor visits).

Thinking of you today. 

Talk to them about the scheduling too Although I would hope work would understand if you needed to call in sick under the circumstances.

Hello, fellow RP listeners! I could use some positive thoughts in the coming weeks. I'm moving from the US to Sweden on Monday, actually for the second time. I originally moved there to live with a Swedish girl I was dating. We have since broken up, but I'm feeling the pull back there, and I'm giving it a go on my own this time. I'm fortunate to have remote work, so finance shouldn't be an issue, but there's still a lot of uncertainty. I'm getting more and more nervous as Monday approaches. I hope you'll wish me luck! {#Cheers}

Yeppers !  You can do it !

My favorite chemo foods were Pad Thai (and don't forget the lime !) and the Lipton Chicken Double Noodle Soup packets.  Carbs, lotsa carbs before.  This is an endurance marathon.
