So, we have been in Cambridge Bay for over 5 weeks now and have had some great and some not so great adventures...
the plane, feeling proud of myself, starting a great job with super potential for my career, exploring the North - Mount Pelly, going out on the land with a coworker and her family, seeing the beauty of the North, meeting really great people, and learning many new life foundations - i.e. taking the long view...
Not so great adventures:
Ellyott hating the daycare, him having a very sore belly for 4 weeks, him getting a double ear infection and tonsilitis, my bed, couch and TV gone missing (have the bed now, couch is in Cambridge Bay but has not been delievered and the TV... well no one has any idea where that is) and I fell yesterday 3 times...1. in front of the daycare and a bunch of roofers, 2. up my stairs carrying E's wagon inside, and 3. the worst one, falling down 6 stairs while taking my dog out for a walk... ouch - sprained finger, sore ribs, bum and leg.
Apparently I may be able to go out on duty travel to explore some programs in Clyde River and I am soooo excited! I am going to learn so much! Either Ellyott's daddy or grandma may come to Cam Bay to stay with E while I go... all up in the air now, but firm details are coming in the next week or so! I can't wait to get going on this job... yay!
I am getting a parka through a friend I have never met... LOL! Thanks Susan for introducing me to Tara! I am getting a great deal, so I am happy.
So every night, I scour the sky looking for northern lights and some people say we are too far North, and others say they come in November... So I will keep my eyes open and fingers crossed! I feel that we are settled in now and am content. I have started really thinking about my life, the choices I have made, and the choices I want to make for my future... this North adventure is giving me lots of time to reflect and I think that it was long overdue!
