Happy happy, Joy joy!!

Hubby has a new job for the coming fall! Woo hoooo!!!! He is transferring to a high school in town, where he will be teaching English. A high school! In town! We will be moving to the big city (pop. 23 500) sometime this summer. Now, don't get me wrong, Carcross is a truly gorgeous place. BUT we are not outdoorsy types. We like stores, and all that fun stuff. Just think.... no more hour long drive to buy milk. No more 5 hour grocery trips. An afternoon outing to the swimming pool will be just that, an afternoon. Girl Terror can go back to pre-school. I can get a job. We will see our friends so much more.
There are down sides, of course. We will never find housing as cheap as it is in Carcross. There are a few people here that we will miss. Hmmmm.....nope, can't think of any more negatives! Moving! I am moving! Even that sounds exciting. I have to go pack something now...

Oh God! Moving!?!?! I curse the word! I spit on the word! But...I might be a little jaded, based on recent experience. :)

But hey, if it gets you where you want to go...then move. Good for you.

Town? What town?

In any case, I am not helping you pack. Been there, done that.

Congrats!! Your excitement is coming through loud and clear!!

Congrats! 23,000 is the perfect size town-big enough to have snow peas at the grocery store, small enough to know your neighbors and have parades with tricycles in them. I know, my New Town is 24,000. Low costs of living are awesome too...big house for cheap!

I love how Rootietoot described that size town. "Small enough for tricycles in the parade" - I remember living there!

But cost of living? I hear it's pretty high up there, because so much has to be flown up. No?

And CONGRATULATIONS!!! I have always loved moving, too, though I confess my last one two years ago turned into a bit of a nightmare. Still, all the possibility! It's great!

Congrats on the big move - I am so jealous!!! I wish we were moving back to town instead of 5 hours away! Found out today that we are NOT getting the moldy house! Yay! I leave tomorrow for BC and am seriously hoping that a moving truck will be parked at my house the day after I get home! Or at least the week after! Happy Packing!
