The countdown begins
After a temporary hiatus, I am back. Let's just say I've spent the last couple of weeks pouting and harbouring a very legitimate grudge against travellerspoint.com ever since I spent a really LONG time preparing a blog only to lose it, just moments before it was published. It has been taking me forever to upload photos and publish blogs on this site and the latest incident was the last straw. Till now. I've returned to the blog with a new approach; I've decided if I just stick to text, the task of posting entries will seem less daunting. Maybe I can put the photos onto Facebook.
Anyway, the real reason I am writing is to state the obvious...the end is near! I know my time here is drawing to a close when I find myself making mental lists of things I want to stock up on and bring home (funny things like wax matches and dishwashing paste that I've come to really appreciate during my stay -- if only my propane stove was portable!) I've also got this nesting-like urge to go through all my cupboards and clean out the clutter so packing will be a little easier when June suddenly hits. I keep reminding myself that I've got to start thinking seriously about selling the truck and various household items (which means I should probably transfer the truck into my name one of these days!)
It seems like there's so much still to be done, but the thought of going home seems to be front and centre at the moment. I wish I could focus more on the resource centre and the businesses I've started with my house help -- even homeschool stuff should be receiving more of my attention -- but lately I just keep envisioning myself back in the sunny Okanagan, running (or maybe just walking to start) down Gardom Lake road with my iPod and Moses keeping me company. Ah, sheer bliss!
OK. Enough daydreaming...
