I will sell cruises in both lol. I am hoping to open my own shop here in the next couple of years and then have a partner to work with in Canada too.
This may only happen for a couple of years until we just buy in one place, whichever that will be.

I have said I don't want my grandchildren to grow up while I'm not there. I want to support my DD if she has kids.

We do not know what my other DD wants to do yet as she's just 14. So I may have the tough situation of one here and one there, which is why the 6 months in each may work for us initially.

It is so hard though as I really survive better here. Maybe with extended family over in Canada I will do better?

It was me who wanted to return here and hubby didn't. But now he wants to stay as the thought of another international move doesn't appeal.

Life is tough!
Sounds like you have a really good short term plan. I guess you will have to wait to see how it will all work out in the long term. It is possible that extended family will fill whatever needs you may have to be happy - no matter where they are. I am beginning to think about that too. I know one thing for sure - I have a very different perspective on life since I have been back home. If I can bottle that and take it back to the US with me, it might be worth thinking about. But for now, we are here to stay.

Yes, I feel the same. I am definitely more appreciative of the old Country now and looking forward to exploring more of it.
Keep on enjoying

So, we may return after all, but we'll see. I know, shock right! but I can actually appreciate what we had in Canada now that I am happy, and maybe it wasn't so bad.

So, that's all folks!
Woop!!! Works for me
