It's Official... Tom has turned in his resignation at his current work and officially accepted the offer at his new work.
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.
