Hot off the presses

Well the official word is in: we are posted to Petawawa, Ontario as of July 30, 2010.

While I look for a nice frame for the message (no not really) I am overcome with the feeling that I just let out a breath I didn’t realize I was holding. Its not so much the move itself that relieves me, it’s the fact that our future – or at least the part about where we’re going to live – is no longer unknown. Now of course comes the hard part: getting the house ready for the bargain-hungry house hunters about to descend on our tiny military town. But I have a plan now and that somehow makes me feel a little more powerful over my nerves and any small reservations I may have. Not that I have many, mind you. We’ve spent a wonderful 6 and a half years here in Greenwood and both really feel that it is time to move on and have some new adventures elsewhere. Or at least that’s how I look at it – I’m pretty sure with Steven its more career-driven! Either way, I felt this update was necessary as I am quite sure there will be many more references to this move – both excited and frustrated – in the months to come.

Petawawa is great! We were just there over the holidays as some of our dearest family lives in the Pembroke and Beachburg areas.

Good luck on your new adventure and glad to hear your procedure went so well Michelle!

Hey there,
As hard as move will be, I have to admit I am rather excited. Because you guys will be closer to us, and we would love that. Also, we have a inpending move coming for maybe this summer, but if it works out, we will be very close. That'll be great! Don't ya think.
