DRAYTON VALLEY

So I have made a decision....it was a tough one....it kept me up at night.....it made me very grumpy....it made me very scared....it made me question my life....but here it is.....we ARE MOVING!!! I really appreciate all your feedback and can't wait to share this journey with you all! I feel really good about my decision and hope all goes smoothly next week when we go to Alberta to find a house. I know this is going to be pretty tough but we can do it! We plan on moving between October 1st and 15Th depending on Carl's work schedule. I have so many things to do my head is going to explode!! Any tips or things I may forget would be much appreciated ;)

We moved last year and it was a great opportunity to get rid of stuff. I loved that aspect of it. I boxed up stuff before we sold our house just to get it out of the way and then we just never un-packed it and took it to goodwill and had a garage sale...anything to get it out of our house. :)
Of course, as you know, it's time for another garage sale. And we have only been in our current home for 8 months. :)
Best of luck!!

Yay on making a decision :-) Start packing up everything you dont use or need now, Do one room a wwek or something and you'll be organised in no time, also have a huge clean out....
Good luck house hunting

wow - so not jealous of moving!
I HATE packing and sorting and shifting and packing and rolling and sorting and sifting!!

What beautiful pictures!! We are trying to move too. It is a really hard desision to make.
Good luck with all the stuff that goes along with moving. The only tip I have is "if you don't use it throw it out!!!" That makes moving much easier :)

Well, I hope you LOVE it there. Do the kids know? What do they think? If you need help (like me watching HALF of the kids...lol) so you can pack let me know. Madison is going to be devastated! I will miss you too! ;)

So have you decided on Drayton Valley for sure? How about Devon? We have friends who live there and absolutely LOVE it! Both communities are very small town family friendly....you will LOVE it there, too....I'm sure. The move...even with a husband in town....always depends on the organization of the mom...the more you organze the smoother it will go. A word of advise...don't look at the whole job....just look at one cupboard/closet at a time, and before you know it...you'll be ready to go...Blessings as you start on a new adventure!
