Things are as busy as I expected them to be, but I'm missing SP!!!! So, taking a rare quiet minute to check in and say 'hey'!!!!
Got back to the gym today for the first time in almost a week (!!!!). We've been frantically getting the house ready to sell (!!!!!!) and planning our trip to the American west coast to look for a new home, get the kids school and pre-school registrations organized and basically get ready to set up shop there (!!!!!!!!). Yep, this is the busy-ness that has been going on.
I'll try to fill in with the happenings as the weeks go by, but short story is that after many years of unspeakably hard work, sacrifice, nail-biting and white-knuckling, DH and I are in the midst of achieving a major milestone in our life-plan together. Within a few months, we will be moving our family from Canada to California. For the past 2 years, we have been investing heavily to build up our business there - and now, that's where the bulk of the work is coming from, allowing us to apply for visas and safely plan to spend at least the next few years living and working. This is 'the' place for DH to be in his line of work, and this move should also allow us to cut back on the amount of time he spends traveling.
As an added bonus, I will be living in the same time-zone as my mother for the first time in 25 years. There is an awful lot to be done - we end our days absolutely beat. But we honestly could not be happier or more satisfied. I've had a few 'moments' - we love our house and have been very happy in it. It will be hard to leave it behind - but I don't regret leaving Montreal and know that this is totally the right move for our family for many many reasons.
So - that's what's up! Am not expecting a lot of progress on my Spark Goals over the next couple of months - I am aiming to maintain at my current level if at all possible - and am going to concentrate on honing my 'getting back on track' skills! I expect I'll need them frequently!
