It always takes longer for your stuff to arrive across the ocean... Our container was chosen for an on-site inspection by Canada Customs in Montreal. As if we were smuggling booze from astronomically expensive Norway...

Life is a box! Those dear boxes back in Ontario, this time in Toronto. If we'd known that we'll be coming back so soon, we'd left our stuff in storage in Burlington for all this time and saved a lot of energy and money.

Now these boxes are, once again, empty and carefully stored away in the basement for the next time. Who knows where the next box takes you!
