Moving Back Home

It has been almost 8 years since I left Edmonton and I am happy that I am finally moving back home. Scott has been on the job hunt for months now in Alberta and he finally decided to apply for an internship. He was hesitant because he is just finishing one up here in Regina. Kind of feels like he is done with them, but after some thought, he realized that doing the internship might be his best hope at getting into the Government of Alberta. He was told that 100% of the interns that wanted to stayed with the government after these internships are over, did.

I think after we left Calgary to move to Regina, we always said we would return to Calgary for we do love it there and Scott's family is there. But Scott decided that the provincial government is where he wanted to be and the provincial government jobs are mostly all in Edmonton. Made it a pretty easy decision on where we would end up and I can’t help but be happy with his decision since that is where my family is.

We are busy organizing our plans and cancelling our life over here. We plan on packing the U-Haul on April 28 (if anyone wants to come help). Our last day at our current jobs is April 27. My mom is flying out here on April 24 to help pack and mostly watch Boston (for my daycare ladies last day is April 20). Oh and cant forget the Relief Society dinner my committee and I are planning for April 25. It is going to be a very busy next few weeks, very stressful and a lot of crying I'm sure. I cried 2 times this morning, all before 8am! But on a good note, right in the mix of all the busy, on April 23, I have my ultrasound AND Boston turns 2 on April 19!

Our plans are to stay with my parents in Sherwood Park until we find a place to live. Scott's job doesn't start will May 14, so we have 2 week to figure out where we want to live and also find me a job! But I think I am going to really have a hard time finding a job... who wants to hire a pregnant lady for only 4 months?!?! BUT I really need a job in order to ensure I get full EI and we really need the money! The internship doesnt pay near as much as we need.

Well wish us luck!

So Happy for you guys, and like I said before do not hesitate to call me. We would love to have Boston over ANYTIME for a play date, even while your Mom is here so you can get some serious packing done. Any Saturday (tomorrow), and especially the day you guys pack up the uHaul, I know it will be easier to get done without a 2 year old running around your legs! So call me, or I will be calling you!

did you take that pic?? Its gorgeous!!

Just a note on the EI thing, I got laid off when I was 4 months preggo and couldn't find a job. I still got EI, you just start it a bit sooner and it will still end a year (or a tiny bit less) later. So, its not a year from baby's birthday, but its still a year. Just a thought. theres an office in Edmonton that is helpful for figuring this stuff out! good luck!! Glad you get to go home!!
