This will be a shorter post than usual. I haven’t mentioned much about our family moving, but we are on our way to Alberta in less than two weeks! Needless to say, I’ll be taking a break from blogging for the next month or so. Hope this is okay?
So, moving days….I would say, for our family, are exciting, nerve-wracking, tiring and sad. All these rolled into one big ball of emotions and memories. I’m sure it’s similar for everyone moving. We’re not unique.
Amidst renting a U-haul, selling vehicles, and buying mattresses(did you know that we aren’t allowed to bring mattresses into Canada from the U.S.?) to be delivered to the new house in Alberta, we are trying to spend as much time as we can with dear friends we’ve made here in Texas. There’s something about saying goodbye that I hate. I know I’m not alone in this. It’s like I would just love to have sweet memories, and then just kind of disappear, you know?
That’s enough sentimentality. Haha. The particulars are as follows: Isaac, two of the girls and the dog are leaving at the end of this month in the U-haul. This will be a four day trip for them. They are excited, so that’s good. Myself, and three of the other girls are flying (YAY!) to the Calgary airport, and then renting a car to drive the rest of the way to our new home. This will happen the same day Isaac will arrive with our stuff. And boy, do we have stuff!
All in all, everything is falling into place at the exact right time, it seems. Decisions are made, and emails sent. Yikes. I really can hardly wait. But on the other hand, I wish we could bring everyone with us. I’m really glad that we have friends in the town we’re moving to, otherwise I would die of loneliness. Oh, did I mention we’ll be in quarantine for two weeks once we land at the house? Two weeks of only being in our house and yard. I’m sure we’ll get all our unpacking done. That’s one way to get the job done, eh? (Practicing my Canadian!)
Anyway, enough rambling. I’ll have many stories to tell once we’re moved in. See you in a month!
