Talking Heeeeere weeeee goooooooooooooo!!

:scared:










It feels like a roller coaster that has slowly been inching its way to the top "I think I can, I think I can,.....) and has now just lunged itself over the peek,

Oooooooooh great maple God, help me, heeeeeere weeeeeeee gooooooooo

Last Friday 3pm all of a sudden everything changed. After receiving our Passport request on wedneday and sending our Passports off on thursday my job terminated on Friday.

There is a maple god watching over us, And I will dedicate a ritual sacrifice to him/her/it once whe are over. Best thing, that could have happened, as I will still be payed for 7 (in words SEVEN) months without having to come in.

Allthough it was a bit of a shock initially we realized quickly that this is the best thing that could have happened. Our plans just got sped up significantly and I can now concentrate full time on organizing the move and finding a new life.

In fact for me the 2 week interview trip on Oct. 8th will be my actual move over and I will probably not use the return ticket.

We are so happy, excited and a little bit scared.

Here are our new plans:

now: pack up and get the house ready to find someone to take over the lease
sept. 12th: Visa in the mailbox
Oct. 8th :
Landing in Toronto
Oct. 22nd : Lady mhhp and the kids go back to Switzerland to finish up the house, I continue Job hunt.
Nov 30th : empty the house in Switzerland and hand over (shold not be too difficult to find someone to take over the lease as it is a really good deal)
Dec : Lady mhhp and the kids tour Germany visiting friends and family to say good bye. I come back for Xmas and the first half of Jan
mid jan: Big final good bye party and off we go.

A very happy and a little bit scared

Being a little scared is actually healthy! Sometimes you just have to jump, so jump my friend You seem to know what you are doing and I'm sure you will be more than fine in Canada

The plans seem to have already been made??
Its great to hear that after almost 2 years of "ordeal", finally our mhhp is on his way to the land of Maple syrup, where the maple rituals will become common
Educate canadians about the importance of "maple ritual", which they seem to be neglecting.....
Here comes mhhp to the land of maple and poutine
cheers mate!!!!

Now, is that good news, or what?

I guess what happened is the perfect reason for anyone not to tell their employer they're planning on emigrating.

Good luck, and have fun!
