The final word is...

Ah yes, after a few weeks of nail biting and wondering what the heck is going on.... I have word that I am to return to Victoria for a bit... working on base... until my course in Quebec City is ready... now that means I could be going to Quebec in Jan, if I can orchestrate a course then, or I could be in Vic until June... who knows... but the fun thing is that I will be back and forth between the two cities for about 2 years. So I think we need another farewell party for me.

The really crazy thing is that I leave again on the 23rd of August so we need to do this party quick... I'm thinking the 22nd... whose in?

You can't go home again

This may seem rather depressing, and it very well could be, but I've just come to that realization. I've been back for a whole week and while I've tried to regain my old routine - as much of it as I've been able to recoup - nothing really seems the same. I think it may be due to the whole in limbo, homeless, jobless situation, but nevertheless I feel rather like home has escaped me and I don't quite belong here.

I do think that I will go ahead with the new minimalist Linda (this will be quite the change from the old pack rat Linda) and start going through everything tomorrow... well that, and the fact that I am not going to be in Calgary very much in the next 2 years, or longer is I go through with the reg force move, should help to motivate me.

In any case, I'm suffering from a case of the blues tonight and not too pleased about the whirlwind that will be my life for the next 3 weeks. So, here we go - get your time in while you can... I won't be in town long I'm afraid.

That's a lot of stuff!

So I've been back for almost a week now and have just today decided to venture out to one of the areas holding the majority of my stuff from my beloved Kensington Palace. I thought I would poke through a few boxes and see what I could find in the way of sunglasses and perhaps some clothing. What I did find was a plethora of random things that made me wonder how on earth I accumulated that much stuff. I now know that I do not have to by any sort of toiletries or makeup for years, I have enough books to last my lifetime, my kitchen knick knacks are out of control and I have boxes upon boxes of tea. Now since the state of my future is somewhat unknown I think what I will do while I have the time is to de-junkify myself, and that my dear friends will take me a good long while I expect! I do believe that from now on I will be playing more navy than civvy and thus should really start living quite barebones, that is to say - easily packable and movable.

When I do know where I am or when I am headed somewhere I shall let you all know, but in the meantime call me and if I can tear myself away from my junk pile I'll arrange a visit cause I think I'm leaving again quite soon.
