A Hot Commodity and a Hot Head
by Karla ° Tuesday, February 27, 2007
It’s a done deal. Mark has accepted the job offer that will find us picking up and moving our life to Ottawa – in a few months.

Mr. Hot Commodity has managed to negotiate doing his three month probation period in their Toronto offices and when it is established that both the company and him find the position to be a good fit, we will be on our way to the Nation’s Capital, moving expenses paid for on their dime.

I can’t begin to say how relieved I am right now. The idea of trying to sell our home and pick up our lives and move across the province in three weeks felt so entirely overwhelming, especially considering that at the moment I am one hot headed, bedridden and wiped out momma. On Sunday I managed to come down with the flu and now my body is feverish, achy and randomly overtaken with chills. Add nausea to the mix, and I am feeling like one pretty useless mother to Nate.

Speaking of my little ray of sunshine, this weekend my house was also crammed with family all here to see him. He loved meeting his four year old cousin who has offered to sell her brother to us in exchange for ownwership of Nate, and his Uncle is already teaching him how to be a little rapscallion badass.

The many faces of my little man

Well that sounds a lot better. It would be very hard to pack up and move in just three weeks.
Glad to hear that things worked out for you.
I hope Mark will be happy at this new job.

Nate is so cute. I just love his faces.

Congrats to Mark on the job and to you both on the new chapter in your life! Ottawa's a beautiful city, and I get occasional business trips there, so hopefully I'll still get to meet little Nate one of these days!

Congrats on the new position! More time is a good thing=)

I can't believe how big Nate is getting, he doesn't looks too babyish anymore. Still adorable though!

Hope you feel better.

I'm so sorry you were sick! I'm glad that you have more time on the move. I'm thrilled for you! A move is always a tad bit scary, but it's a great sense of adventure, too! Good luck to you!

Congratulations on the new job Mark! I have a few friends in Ottawa, they love it there!

I had that flu so I can honestly feel your pain. Get well soon Mommy!

Nate is as cute as ever!

Thanks for the info about the global warming movie, and I hope you are feeling better!

The little guy will definitely cutify the capital.

Every boy needs a weird uncle that will teach him things his parents may not wish him to learn.

Dude, did Nate just flip me off? That's not right. He's too cute though, so it's ok.
Sorry you're feeling bad. If it makes you feel any better, I'm in it with you. I feel like utter crap this week as well.
Be careful with the flu, it's been turning into pneumonia in my neck of the woods. Rest up and get well soon!

OMG, I forgot to mention the job! Congrats and good luck in the future. Hubby keeps telling me that moving is the only way to move up. You're doing the right thing!

Congrats to Mark on the new job. Glad you don't have to pack up your life and newborn in just a few weeks!

I hope you will enjoy living in Ottawa as much as I do! It's really a beautiful city!


P.S. I can't believe how much Nate has grown! He's so adorable!

Wow, congrats on the new job. It's great that you have a few months to get everything going...And at their expense is even better. Nate is looking adorable, as always. I love his little expressions and his hair! He's quite the little bad ass too! ;p

I'm glad they were willing to give you some time to move. I hear Ottawa is a great city. I wish I could live in a bilingual city. The Rideau River is a great hangout spot.

Oh, the kid is quite cute.
