I've been doing my best, but I just can't seem to get as excited about this move as Mr. I feel badly about that, like I'm the one putting the damper on everything.
Still haven't heard from immigration, hoping to hear from them by the end of the month.
I've landed a job interview for tomorrow morning in Clearwater, as a Pre-Natal home visitor. They did mention that they were looking for a registered nurse, but were having trouble replacing the one that was phasing her way out. So, they decided, instead, to have the RN supervise a regular lay person with related experience. Yay me!
So, I leave this eve for Gramma's, all by myself. I'll be setting up our PO Box, and getting some networking done, as well as getting a feel for the town. I'd like to know where everything is before we move there. I'll also be visiting the school to get more info on them, see if I like them or not. The good news is, at least they have both gifted and challenging children in their 2nd grade class, so I'm hoping that we'll be a nice fit with D.
I've got a lot on my mind, with the logistics of making this move work. It's going to be tough, in that neither of us can cross the border to load up our belongings that we stored @ MIL's. Considering that our new home is about a 4 hour drive from where we live now, and factor in a 2 1/12 hour drive MIL's, it makes for a crazy long day to get out belongings up there. We haven't even figured out if anyone is going to help us unload (though I'm sure it won't be a problem), because we're so focused on finding people to help load up in the states. With that being said I'll also have to meet them at the border to bring the truck of my belongings across. It's all a rather big headache. Though I can't really confirm it, I'm probably really stressing over this.
So, I am spending my day prepping for my interview tomorrow. Will leave later this eve, and focus on nailing my interview so that I can finally say I'm employed when it's all said and done.
Tomorrow will be spend in Clearwater, exploring and networking. Friday will be spent in Kamloops doing some shopping and the like. MIL will be arriving here on Friday eve, and Sat will bring the rest of the family up to go and have a gander at the new place. We'll also be a dropping off a load of our stuff there from this house, and that sort of thing.
I'm waiting for that crazy "this is gonna be the best" feeling to hit me, hopefully it will soon.

GOOD LUCK on your interview!!! Don't worry about being apprehensive. It is a normal feeling just because it is a big change. But remember, change is good alot of the times.

Wishing you lots of luck again on your interview and this whole transition.
