They're Here, Get the U-Haul Packed . . . .
As of this afternoon, we have in our possession two Permanent Resident of Canada visas! Hip, hip, hooray!
They were issued on November 5, 2007. This is two days less than two years after our application for Permanent Resident status was acknowledged by the Canadian Consulate in Buffalo, NY. Who says it's easy to immigrate to Canada?
The title of this post is a bit misleading. We are not planning on packing the U-Haul until probably April of 2008. The thought of driving across the North American continent in winter is not appealing to either of us. (The Four-Footed Child would probably not have a problem with it, however. She's rather looking forward to barking at antelope and buffalo.) Also, we're not taking everything we own at this time. Number One, there's no place to put everything in our tiny strata (condo) in Vancouver. Number Two: It's going to be a LONG time 'til anyone relieves us of our home in Florida with the real estate market the way it is. Therefore, we'll be traveling back and forth between the two homes for awhile.
Eventually, though, it'll be "all Vancouver, all the time."
Looking forward to that . . . .
