Moving To Canada

You may have noticed that I haven’t been writing much for the last couple of weeks. The reason for this is that my husband and I are preparing to move to Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he’s originally from. We live just north of Los Angeles in the lovely state of California right now. We’re leaving on August 23rd, so that means that a lot of my time has to be occupied with fun stuff like packing.

The reason we are moving is quite simple: the economy here is moving nowhere and jobs are scarce. I keep hearing about how we’re in a recovery period right now, but I just don’t see it. My husband has been out of work for two years now (he was in new home construction, so guess where his job went?) and he has been diligently looking for work all this time. In this time period he has had two interviews…only two! There is just not enough work available for everyone who wants a job, it’s that simple.

Canada has weathered the global recession better than most of the G20 and is truly in full recovery mode. Some parts of the country, like the place where we’re headed: Manitoba,  weren’t really affected, and have just continued to experience slow but steady growth.

I will return to daily updates of news and information relating to debt, and making fun of those smug personal finance folks who make stupid statements once we are settled and I can get Internet again. I anticipate that will occur some time in September…the earlier the better.

    The Dems have no respect for the law or for doing what is right. Their only thought is for whatever gives them the most political power. They make me sick. It is a blessing people don’t live forever. If these people can’t get voted out, they will pass on sooner or later like Kennedy and Merther. Specter is gone and a few others but we still have too many in office.
