We have had a great weekend - day 8 of skiing in 6 inches of powder. My kids discovered the terrain park and survived without a trip to the emergency room. J is conquering his fear of the more difficult hills. Either that or he has decided it isn't that un-cool to ski with your parents.
Spring is here with temperatures in Calgary forecast to be in the 40s or 50s for the next few weeks.
We love it here and are making big plans for the summer.
Yet there is a huge question mark looming on our horizon.
After nine months of daily struggle, it has become clear that my husband can no longer work for his current boss. Not just can't, but won't. Not even a question in his mind. Not even a question in my mind.
We have options in the company. You don't work somewhere for 15 years and not have friends and connections. We are also considering choices outside the company. Nothing will happen tomorrow. I doubt anything will happen this week. But who knows where we will be in a month.
Here is the thing. There is some anxiety. Of course I am worried about the boys, especially J who did not do very well with the last move and is finally comfortable. But there is more excitement. If you were in your mid-40s and could start fresh what would you do? Where would you move? What would you become?
Needless to say, these are interesting times.
