There is something about having your own place.
Your own things.
And we do not have that "thing" or "place".
We are in limbo.
Finally in Alberta, but in limbo.
As for getting back here....
1. our movers called and said they couldn't pick up our stuff until the 17th... and we had scheduled it for the 15th. And as of today, they still haven't picked it up.
2. Sunday morning we wake the kids up early (5:30am) to get to the airport on time for our flight which was to leave at 7:15am. While waiting by the gate, they announce that something is wrong with the plane..... and they have to get a new one. Which was going to take 2 hours. Which would make us miss our connecting flight from Edmonton down to Calgary.
So the solution.... was we were put on a direct flight to Calgary..... 6 hours later. So we were at the airport with 2 small kids for 7 hours, then we flew for 6 hours, then we drove down to Lethbridge for 2 hours. Needless to say, when we finally pulled into my mom and dad's house I couldNOT have been more happy. And the kids did so good for that day. Incredibly good. (There may have been gravol involved.)
3. we are trying to find somewhere to live in Calgary. And it is proving quite difficult. So tomorrow we are driving up there to see if we can find somewhere tomorrow.
Just because it's right, doesn't mean it will be easy.
