Default I'm leaving on a jet plane....

I have not been the most prolific poster, but I read often and you little lot on the USA boards have been a wonderful resource both for the practical things you need to know about moving to, and living in the US of A, but also, for my mental health

Being an H4 wife in my somewhat stepford like area has been at times a bit draining, and being able to log on to expats and have a good laugh at the great posts by people who generally don't take themselves too seriously, have a bloody great sense of humour, and understand all about the roller coaster ride of loving the place and then feeling homesick etc has been brilliant.

I fly out of DFW in the morning for our move to Edmonton, Canada (new job for hubby) and I will be reading as usual but just wanted to say a huge thank you before I checked out of the country as I lose my internet connection at lunch time today.

Thanks again everyone!

Thanks everyone!!

I'm not sure about leaving Stepford, are the Canadian women given to being Stepford like I wonder?

Ray - apologies for not posting enough- I will try and rectify that

YES!!! Of course I've no idea what I will do, I only worked part time in the UK, as I have been stay at home mum, but they are all in school now so it will be great to contribute to the family income again!
