I'm sooo psyched! I went to the Co-op today to check in on my snowmobile and they were just finishing up with the final touches (it's being souped up with the accessories like the hitch, sled, etc.). I get to pick it up tomorrow...I can't wait!!
Actually, looking back over the past three months, I can see a lot of things that have changed - some of which I dare not mention here. Let's just sum it up in northern terms...I no longer blink when I have to pay $40 for a bag of flour, sporadic water service doesn't phase me, walking around in heavy Baffin boots is an acceptable work-out, -30' weather does not seem so cold...the list goes on. Now that I have a big 'ol dog and a snowmobile, I feel like my metamorphosis is almost complete.
There are still a lot of things left to do - more adventures to have - and I feel lucky to be given that opportunity. I'm really looking forward to Christmas...unlike a lot of other people, I will be staying in Pang for the holidays. My students seem to be a bit surprised, but I think it's going to be great. Can't wait for my friend to get here!
Another 'can't wait'?...to follow this post up with some cruisin' pics. Yay!
