Ok... It is now...
-1 week, 5 days till the packers and movers come
-3 weeks till my last day at work
-5 weeks till we leave!!!
I am almost ready... I still have to buy a few things - which most importantly include boots for me and Ellyott. I can't believe how difficult it is to get boots that are rated at -50 or lower... I have been to MANY stores and yes, I know it is summer, but seriously NO ONE HAS ANY! Unless I bought these huge heavy steel toed man boots from Marks Work Warehouse - which does not suit me. I can't find any boots for the baby either. I am at a loss.
Other than the boots, I need a few odds and ends, and am facing a laundry dilemma. I thought I was being placed in a unit with a top loader, so I went and bought powdered soap, however, they have moved me to a unit closer to the daycare and this unit has been redone (YAY) but includes a front loader. So hence my issue... my sealift is already ordered and crated and possibly already sailing and the company who is shipping my furniture does not accept any liquids...
ANYONE FROM THE NORTH HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR ME???
After my things are sent, we have 1 month of jam packed events! Our childcare provider is on vacation the first week of August, so Ellyott will be with family, then he goes back to Loretta for 1 week, then I am done work. We have a trip to the cottage with friends and then my friend Natasha and Ellyott's BFF Christian are coming out for a couple nights... then back to Halifax to plan for Ellyott's 2nd birthday party on August 21. August 23 I start working for Government of Nunavut from here... interviewing people, gathering info etc. THEN, Ellyotts real birthday is August 26, I am standing in Angela's wedding on the 28th and then the plane leaves with us on it on August 30th! WHOP!
I can't wait to hit the road! I am still terrified of the flight with the baby, but I am going to have to get over that, eh?
Anyone think of something I am forgetting? I appreciate any thoughts, suggestions etc!
