I Want To Marry This Tree

“Are you leaning today? If so, which way?”
If I had a nickle for every time that Jack and I have exchanged such messages in the last few days, well I’d have at least a dollar.
Then it breaks down to the numbers. Percentages to be exact.
“I think I’m 95/5 at the moment. You?”
“Really? Not 80/20?”
“Ok, maybe 75/25″
These are the obscure methods we use to express how we feel about moving back to Alberta.
We need more details before we can make an informed and solid decision, but the fact that Jack and I spent over an hour last night looking at houses in our old neighborhood perhaps gives some indication of which way we would like to go.
Likewise Aiden and I are already mulling over plans to start up a LARP in the Calgary area, since to my knowledge there are no existing games that we can join.
As much as I like Ontario, I miss home. I miss V, and the mountains, and my friends. There are things I will miss very much about Ontario, but the lure of the place where I grew up is stronger than anything holding me here.
I’m doing my best to keep my excitement in check until we find out what exactly the offer is. Jack is going to discuss the specifics with the higher-ups on Monday. In the mean time, our weekend will likely be spent making the first moves towards preparing the house for sale. The garage needs organizing, Aiden still has some boxes of possessions that need sorting, things of that nature.
V and I have a phone date planned for this evening. We spoke for a short while last night, so that I could fill her in a bit on what is going on, but we didn’t have time to talk about everything. She has already offered to do whatever she can to help with the move, including making a trip out here to help me pack or get organised or anything else we might need.
Hopefully by early in the week this will all be a done deal. I hate the not knowing.
