Touching Base

I felt the need to post this blog today as I just cannot keep up with all the thank you's that are so necessary to say to so many of my spark friends. THANK YOU for all of the wonderful messages and SPARK GOODIES, COMMENTS on my page, SPARKMAIL etc. I am so sorry I have not sent out individual messages but I am finding it hard to keep up with some of my other items on SP at this time that are quite necessary to keep me on track while continuing to prepare for our move.

I have not been a very good SPARKER as of late, cheering on others SUCCESSES but know that I do every single day.

I have 18 days remaining before we leave our home in Grand Bend Ontario, to move to Byron (London, Ontario). The new owners of our house visited us last night and purchased several large items in the home that saves us from having to move them. We are ready to get something a little different. We were able to give them a tour to inform them about all the little things that they would not have been told by the realtor. Very nice young couple with a beautiful little girl. They are excited about moving in.

Today I am in London dropping off items for the Good Will and The Women's shelter. Then, stopping by a Shoppers Drug Mart to drop off a resume to the manager there. One of the employees there used to be manager, stepped down, just as I did but is still there full-time gave me the heads up that they are hiring part-time cosmeticians. I wasn't sure about returning to a Shopper's but you know what, if I did have the opportunity I think it would be ideal, seeing that it is part-time and a non management position. It would be a 5 minute drive to work and I would be doing something I enjoy. If I did indeed get the position I know it will be basically evenings and a weekend or two a month, but I would still have free days to do more leisurely things and keep up with my activity. Wish me luck!

We have a big sale happening this weekend. I know it is Easter but being in a Tourist Community we end up with a lot of out of town people coming for a getaway. As there is not much to do once Church is over, we might just have a busy sale. We shall see. The sale is arranged for Friday and Saturday.

So friends, that's where I am at. I miss the daily contact, look forward to getting more involved again but thought I would update you. Thank you again for all of your support and encouragement and for every little communication that comes my way. They are all so appreciated!

Have a fabulous Easter Weekend! Hugs....Nora

    WOW, you are truly very busy. Getting ready for a move as well as a sale, that all takes much time. Please don't feel guilty about not blogging, we all understand.
    I wish you all the best on the sale and your move. I wish you luck on the job also.
    Sounds so convenient for you being 5 min. away from your new home. All sounds like an awesome new chapter in your life. Have a very blessed Easter.
    Hugs Dear one.

    Wow! Sounds like you are super busy! I did not realize that you were in Grand Bend. I have been there many, many times - excellent beach! I live in Cambridge, Ontario. Wishing you all the best on your move to London area!

    Moving definitely keeps you busy! Most of us have been through a move or two and totally understand. Heck, just life in general keeps everyone pretty busy even without all the extra stuff thrown in.
    Crossing my fingers you will get the job.

    Have a Happy Easter!

    Thanks for the updates! It's nice hearing from you. I'm not even going through all the big changes that you are and it's hard for me to keep up with Spark Friends. No one here will get upset if they aren't individually greeted once in awhile I promise! Hope you have a Happy Easter!

    Sounds like you are BUSY!!! I am so excited for you. Sure hope you get the position - will keep my fingers crossed. How nice that you would have such a short drive and do something you like... sounds perfect!

    We have a realtor coming out Saturday and another on Sunday. Need to do some last minute touches (yeah, painting a few walls & shampooing all the carpets) before we can list.

    Anyway, we all know you are going through a lot right now, so never apologize for not being here 24/7!!! One day you'll have time on your hands again & you'll be able to get caught up. But even if that doesn't happen, everyone knows that you love them & support them! Keep up the great work, sweet gal. We love ya!

    Thanks for the update. I looked up London and discovered you are approx. 400 miles due west of where I am (outside of Syracuse, NY!) Our latitude/weather would be identical except for the influence of these "little puddles" known as the Great Lakes! Continued good wishes on your busy, busy transition to your new home. emoticon

    It's so nice of you to give us this update, Nora. It's natural that you can't keep up with everything at the moment, what with your move and yard sale and job search. I mean, that all sounds a little overwhelming to me! So please don't worry about us! We will be here when you get back into a routine and once again have time to lavish us with all the attention we crave. You really brighten up this place more than you know! It's a little darker when you're gone, but never, ever feel pressure to be here when it would create stress elsewhere in your life! We want you to be happy and stress-free!

    So glad everything is going so smoothly! I hope you have a successful sale and that you get a job that you love!

    Glad to hear the move you had been wishing for is happening.
    Good luck with the sale !!
    Can't wait for you to get settled in your new home and sharing all your excitement!!
    Just Be Happy,
    Love and Hugs,

    You have so much going on that it is to be expected that you can't do everything. Just seeing your words lets me know all is well and you are grateful. Spark on as best you can. I will know you are moving on into a new world. HUGS and Happy Easter!
