What a week!

2014 Calgary Stampede Grounds
The Saddledome and City of Calgary 2014
Most people who know where we live know that it was Stampede week....very little work gets done as companies are busy "entertaining" their clients at the big event.  Alan was supposed to go but apparently there weren't enough tickets....(talk about an unorganised company).  All festivities come to an end tonight with a big fireworks display.  Another year that I did not attend.  I hurt my back somehow and for the last few days have hardly done anything. Work had a big Stampede BBQ and about 500 people attended. YES, I somehow got delegated to stand behind the BBQ and serve!
Calgary Stampede Parade 

The Calgary Stampede is an annual rodeo, exhibition and festival held every July in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The ten-day event, which bills itself as "The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth", attracts over one million visitors per year and features one of the world's largest rodeos, a parade, midway, stage shows, concerts, agricultural competitions, chuckwagon racing and First Nations exhibitions.
The event's roots are traced to 1886 when the Calgary and District Agricultural Society held its first fair. In 1912, American promoter Guy Weadick organized his first rodeo and festival, known as the Stampede. He returned to Calgary in 1919 to organize the Victory Stampede in honour of soldiers returning from World War I. Weadick's festival became an annual event in 1923 when it merged with the Calgary Industrial Exhibition to create the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede.

OMG, almost forgot, I had my interview this week as well for the National Accounts Coordinator for Westburne....I was one of three chosen to be interviewed.  The guy who interviewed me could not believe my portfolio.  When I applied I was told the position would either be in BC, Winnipeg or Mississauga, ONTARIO!  Well I told the person that interviewed me that I still owned a home in B'ville, ONT and that I was 10 minutes away from the Oshawa branch and could work out of there and travel to Mississauga as necessary! Fingers crossed everyone.....I want to go HOME!  The other two people will be interviewed this week, they are from Mississauga.  I will know by end of month!
B'ville prior to fence (that I haven't seen)

Hubby has a few irons in the fire as well....there is the possibility of him getting a transfer to Ontario as well....we would have to pay our way back, but  at least we would be home with jobs!  He is also working on some other things so it seems things are changing day to day for us.  May need some "packers" soon, any volunteers?  LOL (OK, a girl can dream!)
Move to AB

I saved all the boxes!  All ready to load again for the move back!

What a mess!
Sunny here today so may go for a drive later...just to get out of the house.  Or should we start the painting in the ensuite????  We've had the paint for about 3 weeks now but the motivation to get it done was left at Home Depot I think...LOL
Have a great week everyone!  Fingers crossed for good news for both of us!!
