It's Official

It's Official... Tom has turned in his resignation at his current work and officially accepted the offer at his new work.
We spent a lot of time sorting and packing this weekend.  There is a room in our house dedicated to a massive yard sale.  Yes, we are moving lite.
 

We will be moving Sunday, September 27, if our passports arrive in time.


The trip will probably take 5 days.  We will probably be traveling through Canada 3 of those days.


We plan on taking lots of photos during traveling and hopefully doing some video posting as well.  Just don't expect me to have on makeup if I show my face in the videos.  :)

There is a lot of excitement in our house.  Of course we are going to miss our friends, family, and children here, but as Heather so aptly said tonight, "You're just a Facebook away,"..... or in this case, just a blog away.

My sister, Melody, sent me a list of questions I thought were interesting, so I've included them below with the answers:


Q: Where do you plan to live when you get to Alaska?
A:  Apartment in Anchorage for at least a year

Q:  How long before you have internet service?
A:  I will have uninterrupted internet service through my iPhone


Q:  When will you be having an all night summer party?
A:  Um..... no


Q:  What's the average summer / winter temps?
A:  "Average daytime summer temperatures range from approximately 55 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit (13 to 26 degrees Celsius); average daytime winter temperatures are about 5 to 30 degrees (-15 to -1 degrees Celsius)." [from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Climate_of_Anchorage,_Alaska]

Q:  Will you send a postcard like photo everyday to me?
A:   http://carolinatoalaska.blogspot.com - check it often!

Q:  How far away is the public library (she knows me so well)
A:  The Anchorage public library is downtown where we will probably be living.

Q:  Will you learn to eat fish?
A:  I eat fish now, so that would still be enjoyable there.

I hope everyone has a restful evening and pleasant night.

Hugs,
Janis
