Changes Coming Soon

Sigh ... it is happening just like I always knew that it would eventually some day. My sister is moving away from me. While this is a fabulous opportunity for her and her career growth, it is also very sad for my family. Auntie Tee Tee is such an important person in our lives and not being able to see her on a weekly (sometimes daily) basis is going to be a HUGE adjustment in our lives. My sister aside from Mommy and Daddy is the most important person in Kaelen's life and he will dearly miss her. And ... no one, including my hubby and I, can get Masyn to smile the way my sister can.

I won't go on as my sister is likely reading this and crying. I know that the move will be hard for her, but I also am the one who encouraged her to take this incredible opportunity.

I guess that we are just all going to have to learn how to live without her for a while. And in the meantime, invest in a great long distance phone plan, have scheduled web cam conversations and make a rule about having to email on a daily basis.

This is going to be so tough .....

o that sucks. that so sucks. it's hard to have aunts go away. kids need 'em! will she be visitable?

Somewhat. If we strike it rich, we can go the easy route and fly down to see her with a 1 1/2 hour flight. Otherwise, it is a 10 hour drive but with kids, more like a two day drive probably.

Oh that is too bad :(... that must be tough for your family!

Why is she moving away? Is she making a fabulous carreer move? Wish her all the best from me!

No one is sadder than me!!! I almost didn't take the job because I would miss you and the kids so very much!!!
Trust me - I will be flying back to Calgary as much as humanly possible!!!!
It was an extremely hard decision, but hopefully the right one!!!
