The family has arrived!
After months of waiting, we are now in our new home in Airdrie and I have “officially” started my new job at RED FM Calgary. BC was particularly lush and green this spring so setting up the family in a region that was still experiencing snowfall was tough psychologically!
The boys have adjusted well; our new place has lots of areas to play. Coltrane doesn’t realize that he is living too far away from his grandparents to visit every week, which is sad. We have Coltrane enrolled in soccer, we hope he will find a friend or two to hang out with. Amber and I are busy trying to network with some of the other parents in the area. Getting to know other like-minded parents with children the same age is challenging!
My workload at RED FM has been massive from the moment I walked through the door. I have about 10 projects on the go, some continuing from RED FM Vancouver. We just participated in the Calgary Vaisakhi Celebration, which once again was a lot of work. This particular Vaisakhi was the 19th event that I have attended and worked at. Up next, we have RED FM IDOL Vancouver, Calgary and the RED FM RUN Vancouver and Calgary.
I am spending a lot of my time just trying to familiarize myself with the staff, learn everyone’s duties, strengths, habits, loyalties and the like.
One of my primary duties is program directing all of the independently produced shows at RED FM; these are essentially the non South-Asian shows. Just trying to make sense of all of the details at the moment, there are a lot of different groups doing a lot of different things, thus the need for organization is obvious.
Exactly 10 days before moving to Alberta our car was hit and written off it when it was parked on the side of the road. I am now car shopping, not something I had in the plans upon moving to Alberta!
All said, life is good and we look forward to the coming
