This was our toughest border crossing in 7 years. I can't tell you if it's truly because they are starting to be stricter or because we got a zealous border agent. What I can tell you, is that during the hour we all sat inside the building andthe agent literally yelled at JF, I was already making plans for a winter in Canada.
Everything started as usual with the agent at the window. The usual questions; we made sure not to have any food that was problematic (no tropical fruits, especially). He then asked us to park and come inside. Nothing unusual there, we’re used to being searched at customs. However, when we stepped inside, JF was called by an older and much sterner officer who started drilling him with questions, not letting him finish a sentence and not taking our story for an answer.
He kept asking JF why we truly were coming into the States and JF kept saying : to visit, to mountain bike and to enjoy the outdoors, but the agent kept cutting him, saying: “You’re not being forthcoming with me! This is ridiculous!” And he was laughing in JF’s face…
JF went to grab his computer, showed him that we truly had jobs in Canada that we were doing online and that our girls were really studying online with a Yukon program. He searched their schooling website, JF’s job and mine and after a long while came back and told us that we were all set…
The main red flag in our case is that we don’t own a property in Canada. If we hadn’t had the girls registered in school and a job that we could both prove, they would very likely not have let us in this time.
So if you sell everything and go, make sure you have something to prove that you still have ties to Canada because it is possible that you will not be allowed in the US. Have the address of a campground where you will spend the first few nights (they don't like hearing that you don’t really know where you’ll sleep tonight...) and don’t forget that our lifestyle seems totally farfetch for many people. “You’ve been living in this thing for more than 5 years with teenagers?! That’s too funny…” is not what you want the border agent to tell you…
🍭Ohhh sugar doot doot doo dooo doo dooot awww honey honey 🍯 .
Dancing into the last day of #SamhainSistersYoga with a dreary day but one that will be spent at home, so halle-fkg-lujah for that!!! .
After reading the hosts posts and reading about “souling” I couldn’t help but switch gears and laugh to myself about all the human meat suits nowadays with their confused souls who have enslaved themselves to SUGAR. I have been one of them 🙋🏻 It’s a powerful drug indeed and is found in crazy amounts in foods we wouldn’t even know it was in.
I find getting through the holidays without getting hooked on sugar (again) nearly impossible and honestly, for me, all starts with Halloween. If I see a bite sized candy bar some where better believe IMAEATIT. And when I have one...I want another five...it’s a slippery slope especially since I fkg LOVE Halloween and all its chocolatey glory 😻😻😻
Anywhooo I chose a creepy childlike dancer in a gas mask cuz let’s be real...sugar is the devil 🤣🤣🤣 unless you do heroin... then by all means switch to sugar 🍭🤗🍭 and if you’re still reading then just know I fkg love you 🙋🏻🙌🏼😘 October 7-11 💀
