Life before the `knife`

Well, who would`ve thought... it took us all of a few days to sell our house. Imagine... we`ve had this place of ours on the market three times in the past 3 years, with a few interested people along the way, but nothing like the `frenzy`we had this past weekend. On Saturday we had 4 people view our home and Saturday night we had received 3 offers on the place.

So that`s one less thing we have to worry about.

On Tuesday I finally got around to handing in my resignation. One more thing off the list!

Now, if I could just find someone to take over all this remaining work that needs to be completed I`d be all set. :-) Any takers....

We have two moving companies coming by this week to check out the place and provide estimates so I guess it`s gonna happen!!

Anyhow... gotta run... back soon.

Damnit, another month gone by

Where did that go... another whole month slipped by again without a word. This whole blogging thing sure requires some diligence. Noone told me that was part of the deal when they told me how much fun it was blogging!!

Anyhow, here it is rounding the last curve of February and looks like we`re going to be heading north. Yup, decision has been made... we`re heading to Yellowknife. How long you ask... why you may ask... are you crazy... I`m sure all of those questions are crossing your mind right about now... don`t worry, they crossed mine a hundred times in the past month!!

I have accepted a job which I feel to be the best opportunity to come around for me in my career to date. It is one of those proverbial `forks in the road`of life where you know things are probably never going to be the same again once you`ve made the decision. And that`s quite likely the case here too. I hope they will be for the better for all of us. I know that I am making the right move from a career perspective, and even from a family perspective. The whole travelling consultant life has lost it`s lustre for me, and I have no desire to be away from my children 5 of 7 nights per week anymore.

The hard part is family, and by that I mean our extended families. More on that in future posts... for now I`ve used up my word allotment for the day!! ;-) ttys
