Okay everyone, here is the news!
Nope, not pregnant! I need a while to recoupe from having Hunter.
We are MOVING! I think we have shocked everyone with this news as we have been very settled over here. A number of things have brought us to this decision. Matthew needs a change of pace and I want to be a bit closer to the family. The last year with all of the suicides in our community really took a toll on both of us. Our jobs can be very stressful and we would like to feel happier all around.
On our trip that we just had to Edmonton we flew to Whitehorse and drove to Faro. It is a small community of just 400 people about 360km Northeast of Whitehorse. Our offer on a house there was accepted and our house here in Kugluktuk has buyers lined up. Faro looks like a nice change of pace. There is very little crime there- no one locks their homes or vehicles. Matt will be travelling for work and I will be working from home. So that allowed us to move anywhere we wanted. I will now be only a day and a bit drive from family and they are pretty excited. A real perk to Faro is the housing. It used to be a mining community but the mine has since closed. It went from a population of 2000 to 400. So at our nice young age, we will be mortgage free!
I have sold my sewing store to another woman in the community who will run it out of her house. All of our skidoos and quads have been sold. All of the furniture will be going with the house. We are pretty much just packing up the boy and going! Matthew also got to buy his dream truck. Well as close to his dream truck as we could get. We are planning on leaving here on the 14th of January. There is a still a lot to do between now and then so I feel like I never have a spare moment.
So that is it! Our big news!
