Gettin settled

So why not take a trip to pg?

Finally we've moved the majority of our things -well some of them anyway- to Terrace. We know our garbage day, met the mail lady and found the closest beer store.. so we're all set.

So next week we'll be in the peeg, main reason is for work, I get to hang with Big G and the crew at HSBC. But we plan on kickin it with the locals too! Really get in there and see the culture you know? It's really what travelling is all about.. experience the place.!! Pretty much filled up the week already but if you feel you have some authetic PG culture that we need to see just drop me a line!

Kool thing about a small town? You could get them to put just about anything on your ID card!

A bit different

As I settle into my new life, some notable things are starting to show through the clearing dust. I've been keeping mental tabs on them and thought I should write them down so you all can understand a little more what it is like here.

List O things that are whack yo.

1. The online paper is updated once a week max.

2. The internet companies have poor websites (no pricing or anything??) You'd think they would be 'cutting edge' but I had to email the cable/internet company for prices.

3. No information online about this freakin town. I have to actually look in the phone book to get information!

4. Roads randomly stop and start.
You'll be driving along and the road comes to an intersection where you can only turn left or right.. If you continue straight through for a block ( through houses and lawns) the road picks up again.. same name and everything! Wieeerd man.

5. People are nice.

So as you can imagine.. It's going to take some adjusting, some getting used to, but I think in the end it will all be worth it.

We are getting excited as there is only 3 more sleeps until we get our new house! Can't wait to wash walls, clean bathrooms and bleach every visible surface in the whole house! Yay! (isn't that neat how house! worked out to be exactly the same on three lines without house! trying? Ok.. so maybe i MADE it happen the 3rd time...

We've been playing with a virtual house painting program and are close to deciding what colors we want, it also lets you color the furniture in the room, the trim, pretty much anything you want.. So now we have to buy all new furniture, side tables, window coverings etc as we have created 'dream rooms' and must have them!
M is doing really good, started her ballet yesterday and came home skipping and 'airplane flying'. I will post pics to the other site linked here

Work is good, I'm getting organized and settled. Starting to slowly get into the nursing wards and infiltrate their IT barriers that are strategically placed and heavily fotified. Alas, i forsee a long battle here in the trenches.. send in the snackwiches so I don't go hungry.

Peece Owt

Up and Down and Up again

Referring to life in general at the moment, life has been up and down and back up again. Some subjects are just not easily approachable on a blog.. N0netheless, those who I care about know whats up! So its all good.

But back up again and movin on, the house has passed inspection and the bank has cleared the financing! We decided to sell the PG house, as we would need to remortgage for a downpayment on the new house and get some high interest rates in the process.
So, PG house is on the market, look for the mls listing (should be up tomorrow) if you are lookin to buy.

Not much else to report other than we are quite happy with the move so far and are glad to be exploring new things together as a family. Mostly been spending our time at the river, or lake.. or ocean.. :)

Only one response to the end of september invite so far! I'll send out a more formal invite (with dates and whatnot.. no that does not mean i will supply your date.. I'm referring to a 'calender date' .. sheesh) closer to the end of the month once we are a bit settled.

Peece owt.
