Two Weeks and Counting

Two weeks from today we will be leaving Nunavut! Plane tickets are booked, truck is bought, house deals are going through.... my gosh, this is actually happening!

I spent all of boxing day shopping online for everything for our new house. Between The Brick, London Drugs, Costco and Sears I have found almost everything we need. I got some great deals on our furniture and electronics. Then from London Drugs I got all of the small stuff like cleaning and baking supplies. One quick stop to Ikea in Edmonton for some shelving and a quick run into a Walmart and we are done! I am so glad I was able to shop online. Now our time can be spent with family! We have a week between the closing of this house and the closing of our new house so we will hang out in Dawson Creek and Fort Nelson with family. This is so exciting!

Here is Hunter with our Nunavut license plate for our new truck! We had to register it up here since we bought it all before we moved. I am sure there aren't many Nunavut license plates going around down south!

I looked at the pics of the house last night. I'm am extremly jealous! So, if there is no grocery store and no gas station in town, will all your grocery shopping by done by air mail? What about gas? What is the closest "city" to you?

The license plate thing used to always throw me for a loop before I lived here. There are no roads in or out...how is this car with an NU plate driving the roads out here? Duh did it fly down? lol I desperately want an NU plate, might have to just go out an buy a car to get one!

We are so excited for you as you begin the next leg of your family's adventure!

I KNOW you'll keep the blog going or at least keep in touch via email, right?!

Careful with the licence plate down south, as they are hot commodities and are often stolen as "souvenirs". Not much you can do except for vigilence. I tried to find some security type bolts to put it on but without much success.

I would totally register a car in Nunavut just to have the bear-shaped plate!
