First of all, I realized from a few people's comments and emails that I haven't been as good at keeping everyone "in the loop" as I hoped. Apparently, I hadn't told everyone why I'm moving to Edmonton, or even that I'm going. Well, I'm going to be starting a PhD in Computer Science at the University of Alberta this fall. It was a decision between staying at U of W and heading elsewhere and, after much pondering, I decided to try something new -- new school, new city, new province. It's a big change (especially seeing as I did most of my co-op terms, not to mention both my degrees, in Waterloo) but I'm really looking forward to it, on the whole. And for those people who haven't gathered already, Tash is moving to Edmonton with me.
As for today, Tash and I spent a good chunk of the afternoon re-packing, and we are happy to report that everything* is now packed in bigger boxes, ready to be shipped off to Edmonton. This is something we've been working on since about mid-April, so we're really happy to have that crossed off our list (metaphorically speaking, that is -- having an actual list would require too much organization :)
* except for clothes and other stuff that we'll need over the next six weeks
