Wow! I can’t believe I’ve been living in Halifax for 2 weeks! Time has just flown by and it feels like I’ve only been here a couple of days!

I got to see our house! I’m so excited to move in! The closing date, right now, is set for September 20. Our stuff should be here September 25, so we’ll be living in our house by the end of the month.

The work term is going well. It’s a lot of paper work and things that I’m not used to, but I’m getting the hang of it. I have two weeks left and a pile of resumes out so, with any luck, either they will keep me or I will have something else when I’m finished. I have been getting a lot of compliments on how fast I have caught on to everything so, here’s to them hopefully keeping me!!

And We’re Off!!

Today’s the day! We’re on the highway heading across the province and we should be in Halifax tomorrow afternoon!!

My work term is settled. I have to meet with the supervisor Tuesday and I start work Wednesday. It’s located in the same building as Steph’s office, which couldn’t be any more convenient!

Our house is moving along nicely. We have the inspection scheduled for Friday and gods-willing! We’ll be in on time!!! Can’t wait to finally see my new house!!

Lonesome Tonight

This evening has been an extremely lonely one. These last few weeks have played quite a toll on me I guess. Steph left for Halifax on June 20th and it is now August 1st, this has been a long month and a half. My trip up in early July wasn’t nearly long enough and now it seems like it was forever ago. I only have to wait 10 more days to see her, but that seems like a really long time at the moment.

School is going well. I only have a week and a half left of classes, but that time seems to be dragging its heels to me. Next Friday cannot come soon enough!

On the plus side, I don’t have to worry about my work term. I was sent an email last week telling me that they found me a work term and the location could not be more convenient!! It’s across the street from Steph’s office! (I smell lunch dates!!! Lol!) It’s at a company called Shannex Health Care and I believe they run a bunch of seniors complexes and nursing homes. At least that’s what I gather from their website.

We’re still in the process of getting things in order for the house, ie. financing, inspections, meetings with land owners, etc., hopefully everything goes smoothly and we don’t have anything unforeseen get in the way of us buying it. I can’t wait to move in! It’s such a beautiful house, you’d never say that it was a trailer home. I can’t wait to start looking at furniture, decor, organizational storage and whatnot for it! It’s going to be mine and Steph’s little haven! (and the dog’s too, of course, when that day comes!)
