So it's been four weeks since I *finally* arrived back home in my trusty car that was packed to the brim with all my NC possessions. Mom met me in Raleigh and we drove the 3000 km together -- winding our way through many many states -- until I saw the glorious Welcome to Winnipeg sign.
I've had a chance to see many of you since returning. It's so touching to know that you are as happy to see me as I am to see you! There are still a few that I want to catch up with very soon. I'm staying with my parents for another week or so, until I can get my condo back. I've been trying to keep myself busy, and relaxing at the same time. It's been calming so far...
I want to make this the official last post of the blog. I might start another one sometime... If I feel the itch to bore the public with my rambling musings. But as I try to get further settled here (Goal 1 -- Find a job!) I think I'll just leave it to you all to request an update.
Last thing... I want to officially announce that I'm going to be an aunt in November. This was added motivation (and reward) for coming home. I'm hoping that I can be there for Blair, Janel and the new little one as much as possible -- and being in the same province will help that out!!
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. Thanks again for all your support and encouragement over the last year. I cannot describe how lucky I feel to call you all my friends. :o)
