I am Moving to London Ontario!

As of April 20, 2011. I am a full time permanent employee for the first time in 9 years. This has been what I have held my breath for, this is what I have wanted for 5 years and have not been able to accomplish. I will be going to London Ontario next week to look at 4 rental units. I have decided officially we will move this summer. I needed this status and safety to move forward and this is the next step.

I know I will miss my dancing friends,I know I will miss having all my friends close, I know I will miss some of the men I have gotten to know. I will miss having my extended family close, and I will miss the family we have been living with for 5 years.

I will NOT miss traffic jams, higher cost of livings, I will not miss feeling like I am an outsider in my community, I will not miss living in a basement that I never truly made my own. I felt a sense of shame from moving down from the big house, to the smaller house , to the town house and then landing in a basement and still not being able to be financially secure. 

I will be moving back up to either a  3 bedroom apartment or 3 bedroom townhouse. I will have windows, a bath tub and a dishwasher. Those are my minimum requirements. I will be paying less for rent for those luxuries. My son will have a room of his own after only being able to sleep on the couch for the last 5 years when he visited.

I love the family we have been with for 5 years, they have been kind, patient, helpful and understanding when I had to delay rent as i scrambled to gather money to cover the basics. I love their dog Chewy, I will miss his anxious loving greeting every time he sees me. 

I will miss being able to turn to my aunt Pat to help megan with her tutoring needs

I will miss Brandon’s clinic being my support system

I will not like to find new doctors, new hair dressers ( yes will miss you Tammy) ,new stores, banks, new friends, new suitors, changing address , phone numbers and notifying all companies. I will hate packing and unpacking and the stress of moving day!

I will love clearing clutter created over 5 years, I will love having storage space, I will love having a balcony or backyard that is mine to escape too.

I will be greeted by my company office in london with open arms. I have already established friendships and good relationships with them!

I will love making London Ontario my home!
