Farewell to New Brunswick

The internet will be disconnected tomorrow, the movers come Friday, and we set out for Toronto on Saturday. I’ll try to post fairly soon after we arrive, but we won’t have internet at home until at least the 3rd, so it may be a while.

I’m looking forward to seeing friends in Toronto, and to settling into the new place, but I will also miss our home here. And not just because it’s at least 10 degrees cooler here, and far more comfortable — though that may well be my most immediate regret when we leave! The house, and town, have been very pleasant places to spend a year, and I’ve enjoyed the teaching and working here as well. It’s particularly hard to leave when everything’s green and flowery and beautiful.

So goodbye, Sackville — thanks for having us!

Nice presents! I can’t believe Mark updated his blog before I saw yours.

Here’s hoping the move is uneventful and easy.

Good luck with your move! I will be thinking about you while I move too!

good luck! I am so glad you are using movers. When we moved I was 7 months pregnant- ugh! Hang in there, and I hope your air conditoner works well!

Have a safe move, Aven! It’s too bad that Viv and I didn’t get to see more of you and Mark while you were in NB. I imagine that the number of flights through TO we’ll be making in the next few years will provide lots of opportunities to visit!

Best of luck with the move Aven :) I’ll be thinking about you and your family on Saturday as you make the trek back to Toronto. It’s so hot here..maybe you’d consider bringing some of that cooler weather with you? :) that would be nice :) I know you’ll miss all the green in Sackville..but it’s really green here too..unlike last year’s brown lawns.

Aven - It was so nice to get a chance to see you while you were in the Maritimes. I only wish that my trips to Moncton weren’t so crazy this past year. We never did get that visit in Sackville. Oh well.

Take care and have a safe drive home!
