Well, the paperwork is in so I guess it's official. We're moving.... to Pang! The move is happening a little earlier than we figured in the grand scheme of our planned northern tour. But you know what they say about the best laid plans. Going earlier than planned does open the door to the possibility of a third community before we head back down south. That's an exciting thought but one that's way off our radar at the moment.
We don't know yet when it's going to happen other than it'll be less than 90 days from yesterday. I'm thinking mid to late March sometime. The people replacing us need to sell their house and the people in Pang we're replacing need to buy one so we'll staying put at least until that happens. In the meantime, I'm working on going through our stuff trying to decide what to get rid of and plan to have a huge yard sale. The house in Pang is substantially smaller than the one we have here so it's a good reason to purge. Most of it is stuff we never should have moved up here in the first place.
So I guess another Cape Dorset blogger bites the dust. Babies and Bulldogs will live on from my new location so I hope you'll stick around as we continue our northern adventure I'll keep you posted on the details as we get closer to moving day.
