Default One year on !!!

And life is good, arrived in Canada one year today, 21/09/06

Dont see any junkies, dont see dog shite on the pavements, dont have any hassles at all

The kids have settled well in school

I have a new job, which pays great money, I,m happy

My wife started back into banking with one of Canada's biggest banks, she's happy

Had a great summer, looking forward to winter which is just around the corner

Not going to bore you all with the ups and downs of the past year, more ups than downs I must say.

My greatest down was the hassle I had getting the family registered with OHIP, was a red tape nightmare, but we got there

Looking forward to buying our first home in Canada within the next few months

Not much else to say except, WHAT A QUICK YEAR IT HAS BEEN

For all of those waiting and waiting

Hang in there guys, it will be worth it

Eddie

HAPPY CANNIVERSARY

1 yr 1 week for us and feel the same way you do. Thought about the dog shite thing ........... and i dont recall seeing iT on the pavement or kids playing areas either have seen a few junkies in victoria but hey what do you expect if you visit a capital city. But dont see kids loitering /causing trouble daily or lots of litter/graffitti/vandalism. Just a few things off the top of my head im sure i could think of some more...........

HAPPY CELEBRATING

Much like you guys, things are pretty good.....
Life is good here too in Whitby (EAST GTA).
Arrived May 02 2006. Kids love it! Kids are 15 ,8.7 now. Me .. had a few 'wobblies' at the begining but now have some really good friends (Hi Raine, Hi Gail !! Kiss Kiss)

For me and my family, who are in the early stages of planning a move (with all those pre move wobbles) this is like music to our ears! This is exactly what we are moving for, to live a better life. Thanks for telling us it's out there!

Well done Eddie, is it really a year?? Wow!

What I remember from your first year is those pics of the snow on your driveway, and your buried car. Here's hoping this winter is kinder to you
