I always hoped my husband would move out of Newfoundland and settle in Ottawa,Toronto,or Montreal. It didn’t happen he kept putting it off.
We looked at houses in Ottawa,the prices were reasonable. My husband would always have a reason to say ,”No”. He liked Toronto better . His friend sent all sorts of pictures of houses on sale. He either did not like it or it is too expensive . I was disappointed but did not fuss too much.
Finally I accepted the fact, St. John’s was a city which had everything we needed. Besides big cities had too much crime on the go, pollution was a major concern . Here transportation is adequate for us our car or sometimes using the public transportation is okay where I live. There is no pollution here.
Things have worked out for me. I no longer have the desire to move into a big city. I wouldn’t like to be continuously stressed out. If I need something I can always go for a week and buy it. Life here is pleasant, comfortable and there are people who are friendly and always ready to help,should there be any need.
