Okay monkeys.... this is it.
I'm packing up and making my way across the country from Victoria to Toronto. Permanently.
Everything is in boxes. The movers just came. And I'll be sleeping on quality MEC camping gear until my shit shows up in 9-14 days.
I guess this move is kind of a big deal. Not just in distance and cost - but believe me, the distance and cost have been substantial - but in life. I'm preparing to say goodbye to the slow laid-back island that has been my home for 6 years. Victoria was the city that I really started to grow and find myself in. It's where I learned I have the power to make big changes in my life. It's where I went to University, where I discovered out my love of food, where I figured out that politics - both personal and global - are important, and of course, where I met the love of my life. John I mean, not Vancouver Island wine... though that comes in at a close second. Victoria has been my home.
But I'm a firm believer in your home is where you make it. And it's time to make some changes. As great as Victoria has been to me, it is just too limited as far as jobs go. Unless I want to be a server for the rest of my life, it's time to act; it's time for something bigger and newer and just plain exciting. Time for adventure.
Of course, for the next two weeks I won't have a kitchen. Nor will I probably have much to say since I'll be figuring out where to get milk, tampons, my mail, and next bottle of wine. Oh yeah, not to mention the fact that I'll need to find a job. Oh dear. So instead of harassing you with uninteresting things like "found a beetle today" or "you should have seen my poop this morning!", I'm leaving you in the very capable and highly clever hands of a few spectacular ladies that really know their shit. That's right readers, I'm talkin' guest posters galore! For 2 weeks! And of course, the Wednesday Fresh Foods Blog Hop will still be happenin' so I'll make a quick peep here and there.
See you on the other side my darlings....wish me luck.
