Just Chillin’…or so I’m told!

I only have 7 days left before I leave this city and I’m starting to feel a little overwhelmed (translation: short fuse when faced with stupidity). Personally, I wouldn’t recommend quitting your job, selling your house, selling all the stuff in your house, moving yourself and your car to the other side of the country just so you can move to another country in such a short time span. 

Everyone close to me knows the time and effort this has taken and that I’m on a ticking time clock but its everyone else that I find mind-boggling.  Granted, there are things that have been a complete time suck that have come as a total surprise but to think that I’m just chilling at home waiting to meet up for lunch/dinner/drinks and have all this free time on my hands and can re-arrange my schedule to fit everyone else’s life is just crazy.

What’s crazier is that one of the shocking time sucks was dealing with my health care coverage.  I needed provincial health care to go along with the travel medical coverage I’ll need when I’m in New Zealand.  I’ve been a Canadian my entire life but since health care is done at a provincial level I was in a sticky spot.  I’m leaving the province I’ve resided in for 8 years but won’t be in the province I was born in long enough to qualify as a resident and thus, won’t qualify for coverage.  I ended up getting a leave of absence (weird…I know) but it took me all day to get to that point and I’m not totally convinced it makes sense but it was what I was told to do.  I guess at this point I’ll just wait and see!
