We're moving!

I know it’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve been on here, but I have an excellent excuse.  I’ve been working hard on packing up our four bedroom house to fit into an apartment in Alaska.

That’s right! Jeff got the job in Alaska and we’ll be moving there shortly. He’ll be leaving around the 14th and I’ll be leaving around the 28th or 1st of March. We’re both really excited about this change. The company he’ll be working for has an excellent re-location package and will ship all of our belongings to our new town. We’ve both been doing a lot of sorting through our belongings to decide what stays in storage here, what goes into the garbage and what we’re taking with us. We’ve sold a few things which have really helped money-wise. And I bought 30 boxes from someone on craigslist last night for $10. Not too shabby I think!

I haven’t been doing well with eating lately though. I think we’re both on a kick, where we know these restaurants will not be in the town we’re going to, so we’re going to them one last time while we’re still here, and it’s not helping with the eating strategy very well. We’ve both discussed it and are going to try to eat healthier, even though we will be at these restaurants. There’s no reason we can’t order less, or something better for us.

Exercise has all been the packing we’ve been doing. Since Jeff’s leaving by the 14th and I want to have as much done in the house as we can so that there’s not as much for me to do by myself, so I’ve been going all gung-ho on cleaning up. Wish us luck! 

The best part is there is internet up where we’re going (It is slower though) so I’ll be able to get on SP regularly, hopefully. Jeff and I are planning on having a family blog so our family and friends will be able to see what we’re up to. Can’t wait!


  1. Wow! Tell him congrats on the job and good luck to both of you!

    I've heard Alaska is really beautiful but I don't think I could do it. You are a braver woman than I!

    Hope you get all your house stuff taken care off. I'd start selling everything dirt cheap on eBay/craigslist to get it out of the house.

    Soon you will be eating healthier (Moose? Caribou??) so its okay :)

  2. Good luck on your move and Alaska is so pretty. Enjoy the resturants and choose something healthy.
