I need to vent again - so thanks for listening. The big news is that my family is moving homes (well, it's big news for me at least) and I am now sitting in a stupour of utter and complete anxiety. What does moving have to be so stressful? It is seriously considered one of life's MOST taxing events/processes. And it makes sense, you have to sell or rent out your current place, find a new one in the location where you want to be that is up to your standards and within your budget.
On top of that you need to do a complete cleanse of your current belongings and purge those that have been collecting dust. This is not such an easy feat when you have small children. They are like glue - anything they see somehow gets attached to them and makes its way into the house. I can't tell you how many scrap pieces of paper, balls, felt pens, stuffed animals, colouring books and other useless parafelnalia have been lodged in my home.
The good news is that we have found a place and will be renting a nice sized cargo van to schlepp our lives from one city to another. The new place is located in the beautiful city of Vancouver, BC. For those of you who have never been there, you are totally missing out. The city is geographically located on the West Coast of British Columbia and shares a border with the Pacific Ocean. You have never seen such amazing scenery until you have walked arouond the Sea Wall at beautiful Stanley Park. The view is breathtaking.
So, rent a cheap car, and come visit. I may not be ready to accept guests in our new place consiering it is the size of a shoebox, but there are many fantastic hotels throughout the city. Plus you wouldn't really want to meet up with me - I'll still be grumpy from the move.
