Movin' Right Along

Five weeks from now we will be at 35000ish feet over the Pacific. Interestingly enough, we will be flying east to get to the west.

Things have been happening as we march towards the big move.

We have put a deposit on our plane tickets that will take us from Nagoya-San Fran-Toronto. We have purchased our plane tickets from Toronto-Calgary.

This morning I accepted a job as Elementary PE coordinator at St. Ann's Academy in Kamloops. I was interviewed for the High School position, but...that's the way the cookie crumbles sometimes. I am grateful to have full-time work in a school teaching PE in a city where school enrollments have been declining steadily.

This afternoon, we were paid $1100 for our car and it was driven away for the last time. The title has not yet been transferred so there will be a few days where we will still be the owners of a vehicle, but that will be short.

The weather talk around here is centered on how very dry this 'rainy' season has been. There is concern that there will be water shortages to deal with if the expected hot summer is as bad as they think it might be. It also bodes poorly for the rice crops which rely on lots of water. It has made for fabulous cycling weather.

There is still a mountain of things that we need to get through in the next 5 weeks, it seems overwhelming, but it will get done because it must get done.

Yay for a job!

Why all the way to San Fran and then back to TO?

San Fran is only 3/4 of the way to TO.
