November 17th. Wow. I've been in Kamloops for almost a month. Feels like I just got here...and well in less than 6 months I will be moving again. You are probably wondering why?

Where to begin... Wes has been working up north in a camp style setting. He worked 2 weeks and had 1 week off. He was never home for a full week since you have to drive 12 plus hrs each way, it eats up your time off. So we decided to move to Kamloops...for a change and so Wes could be somewhat closer to work. We found a place with a friend in Kamloops and thought this will be great! I really wasn't a super fan of this camp life. It was taking a toll on Wes and our marriage. I don't think its easy for anyone..and maybe some married people like being apart all the time. I am not one of them.

We packed up our stuff and took 2 trips to get our belongings to our new home. We were in Kamloops 2 days....2 days!! and Wes got a phone call from his old company back in the lower mainland. Delta to be exact. We had just come from was an offer he couldn't refuse. So Wes is back in the lower mainland...and I am in Kamloops. It is a step up from the camp job life. I get to talk to him more and see him more often. Wes has more normal hours! But I am in Kamloops and he isn't. We signed a lease so I guess I will stay. Rent is cheap. But what do I do with myself? Its hard to be motivated to make friends and get plugged in to the community. Christmas is coming and we are going out East. I am finding myself in limbo land yet again. I'm applying for jobs..but I have a hard time knowing I will be quitting in less than 6 months. Blah.
