Our transition started immediately after Wanda returned. There were four assignments we needed to tackle before the move. First, I had to dissolve and transfer my business. Second, we had to prepare the house for sale; and then sell it. Third, we needed to brainstorm a plan to get ourselves out of Alberta; and ultimately to where we needed to go. Fourth, we had to pack up all of our belongings and then send them to where we were going. Where would that destination be? Wanda was hooked looking at pictures of Prince Edward Island (which I will call P.E.I. from here on). She had a naively idealistic perspective of island life. To her, it was an idyllic paradise where we could start a new life.
Looking online Wanda found a real estate advertisement for 124 acres of island land for sale. It was comparatively inexpensive. The thoughts came that we could turn the house and land into a simple bed and breakfast. How hopelessly naïve we were. The landscape of the island was already dotted with “bankrupt” bed and breakfast startups; but we did not know that at the time. Against my better judgement, I took my brain, placed it on a shelf in a jar of formaldehyde, and agreed with this crazy scheme. Now that we had a destination, plans went into high gear.
