After One Year in Ottawa


diploma and mortarboard hat for graduation
Last year at this time, we made our big move from Winnipeg to Ottawa. I can hardly believe that a whole year has passed. 2019 was stressful enough with my husband deployed, but 2020 has been a wild ride.

I am thankful that we moved to Ottawa in 2019 because this year (2020), my husband is moving from his overseas position to Ottawa. We will be able to stay in the same (rented) house for another few years. And, another bit of exciting news, a year after registering with Health Care Connect, I was assigned a family doctor – in my neighbourhood! I’m quite excited that I have somewhere to transfer my medical records.

It seems like yesterday when I wrote about our oldest child leaving the nest, but it was four years ago. This year she graduated with a B. Math. Honours (with distinction) and a minor in Computer Science. Can you tell we are proud parents? Of course we are sad that her convocation is cancelled because of the pandemic. We can’t even have a private party. We’ll have to find another way to celebrate, maybe later in the year when my husband comes home, and our younger daughter is able to visit.

I hope everyone out there in Internet land is practicing social distancing and reaching out virtually to their friends and neighbours.
