Whenever I lose someone I think about moving back to Canada

Whenever I lose someone at home in Canada I always go through this time of wanting to move back to be closer to my mom and sisters. This time is no different and I have been researching different things etc, as have our older girls and hubby. Each of the other times it always came down to the fact that my husband had a good job here and his mom (for a while his mom was not doing well but she seems to be on even ground now and accident free, thankfully) and brother were here.

However, this time hubby is unemployed and is much more willing to move if we can find our own land, which we can in Nova Scotia because homes and land and farms are all much less expensive.

BUT it is such a HUGE decision. ALL our children want to move. So we are seriously thinking about it and doing our do-diligence. It would be MONTHS before we actually moved and we have the CSA season to get through etc. There are so many hoops, paperwork and other things to do to make it happen. I want to tell my mom but I don't want to get her hopes up, yet I am going to need her to do a few things for me. Look at a house we found, open a bank account for me in my home town and other things.

It's exciting and scary because I don't want to make a mistake. I haven't lived in Nova Scotia in 20 years and so many things have changed. I'd have to look at it like I was moving to a new place, you know?

I am a Canadian citizen, Melissa I never gave it up so it isn't an issue. Two of our children have dual citizenship. My hubby is not though, but if I have a job, then it will make it easier, which I do have in part-time work with my work at home stuff. There's just a lot more that needs to be figured out, you know?

    Brande, all our children were born here, but because I am a Canadian they are automatically considered Canadians by the Canadian government. I don't think I need anything for them, but have to look into it further. In the past we were under the impression they all had to have passports, and we desired to get their Canadian citizenship cards just so we had them, but we may have been mistaken or things have changed since we last looked into it.
