the move has been made.

hello hello from calgary, alberta.

we've been here almost a week now. it seems slow and fast all at once.

within 24 hours of getting to town, josh had a job interview
within 28 hours of getting to town, josh had a job.
it was a huge answer to our prayers.
he started this morning and when he called me during lunch, he was enjoying it.

he should be home in the next 45 minutes and after that we have 4 possible places to look at.
we are hoping and praying that a place opens up that we can call our own home.
HOPEFULLY i'll have good news next post (:

many of you who read this regularly are probably wondering how crossing the border went for us last week. obviously (: i got across and thankfully, it was with ease. after exporting the car from the USA, we went through normal customs. after that we were sent to immigration. after that we went to import the car into Canada. after that we went to pay for everything. importing the car is costing a lot more than what we once though. ugh. oh well. at least it's here...this city would suck without at least one car.

after our 23,526th call to immigration, we found out that i AM able to work here before/during my permanent residency process. now it's our mission to find a job that is willing to do a little extra paperwork and patience to hire this american. fingers crossed it happens relatively soon.

i wish i had more exciting things to talk about.

i have plans to join a gym...?
wait. that's not exciting.

i'll just end this now with some pictures from the drive up
