Like a Bride Wearing Running Shoes On Her Wedding Day
I just couldn't do it. Things weren't coming together and I could literally hear the time ticking by to moving month like the sound of that damn beating heart in the floorboards. Looking for a place to live in a city you're never been to is one the most frustrating things I ever attempted. And when you can't find a place to live, finding daycare becomes impossible. And not having a start date added to the problem. It just seemed on thing after another was telling me not to go.
It just wasn't right and I had to listen to the little voice in my head. So, I'm staying put. I'll be jobless but at least I'll have my friends and family here to help me out. FYI, I accept food and cash donations...
Moving would have been a great adventure and maybe one day we will go. When it's right and on our own terms.

Please Pass The Cod
It's official. I will be moving to Newfoundland in January '09. Where exactly? No clue, well not yet anyway. I'll be working for the St. John's office of Big Red so somewhere around there. I heard that Conception Bay south is the place to be if you have kids but we'll see. Really as long as it's not too far from the office and it's not a crack house, I should be ok. I'm putting my trust into friends who live there to find us a place and basically tell me where my new home is. Talk about nerve racking. I might end up with stubs for fingers if this stress level keeps up.
So when exactly? Also, not a clue. I'm guessing the week of Jan 12. right now I'm working with my HR dept to figure out exactly when they want me to start and then I can try and coordinate the moving company, ferry trips for Jon driving our car and a flight from Halifax for Lauren and I.
I'm going to be a giant ball of nerves by the time the actual move comes around but I hear the liquor is a plenty in Newfoundland so at least I have that to look forward to. Perhaps I should start before I get there...
