SO WHAT IS IT LIKE TO BE AT HOME?

 

This is a question we get a lot. And since it seems to be of general interest, here are some thoughts...

 

  • it is really nice to be back at our house. Our tenants had taken good care of it!
  • Lili is happy to play with her friends again
  • Interestingly, going away involved a fair bit of arrangements, but so did coming back
  • we had to get cars - mine was ready for me as I had pre-arranged it with Toyota but it took a while to find a suitable second car
  • we also needed to get new phones as our iPhone 4s no longer well support the operating system upgrades
  • I had to go and get some working clothes - the backpacker wardrobe is not really appropriate at work
  • we now have two bunnies! We had been talking about pets (almost nonstop as the case will be with Lili), and I had promised her to go to the Vancouver Rabbit Rescue and Advocacy to look at them. You can guess the rest.
  • unpacking our stuff from boxes made us want to get rid of more stuff
  • now we are making dentist appointments and catching up with other things that have been on hold
  • I went back to work full time five days after landing in Vancouver.  That was pretty surreal...
