It's official....my first blog

After reading my favourite blog "Cancuncanuck" - I thought to myself, why don't I try this out.... Maybe someone will actually read it and find it interesting!!! Or not???

Well, it's official. My husband Gil (gilberto) and I have purchased some land in Cancun for build. They say it should take about 5 months from start to finish...My fingers are crossed!!! Gil leaves for Cancun on Friday ..... I will be stuck here in the COLD, COLD, COLD. He'll only be gone a week...

We have decided we are not moving back down until the house is almost finished. I have picked a date in my head...and hope to remain as close to that date as possible. (May 1) It seems as though it is soooo far away, but is it?? Gil is leaving before me.... estoy triste.....:(

I have taken the first major step, and by major I mean I told my mom we were leaving!!!! She actually took it better than I thought, but it could be she is still in denial!!!?? The other step(s) I have taken are on a professional level. I am a Supervisor for an insurance company here in Calgary... I let management know I would be leaving. I can't believe it... They knew the idea was always in the back of our minds, seeing as how we already lived there and have always talked about moving back!!! A few of the ladies that work for me were in tears... It was nice!(is that terrible??) I've always considered myself to be a very fair and fun "boss" - ohhh I hate that word!!! I will miss them completely, but what can you do?? I guess another reason I've picked May 1 is because we get our bonuses in April; like I am going to miss that!!!

Well..... I will have to keep posting so as to attract any audience, whatsoever!!!

We are preparing the sale of our house up here in Canada... So off to the lighting store to grab some new fixtures!!! Ohhhhh how the markets have fallen....

Cheers!!! Oh, I guess I should say --> Hasta luego!!!
