The unpacking is done – except for a few boxes of various “stuff” that I need to decide where it goes. The organizing is pretty well wrapped up as well. I need to connect my stereo to the PVR and TV, connect the speakers and test that, but it is a quick job. I need to find a place for everything. I don’t have a lot of stuff but I did move from a 3 level, 3 bedroom place into a place which is about the same size as one of the levels in the last place.
Don’t get me wrong. This place is exponentially better than the last place. The washer/dryer are in the bathroom so now I can hear the dinger telling me that the clothes are washed or dried – no more wrinkles in my dress shirts. The floors are hardwood and tile – so much easier to keep clean. There is a backyard for the dogs to run around in – they are happier, I am sure. I would guess that the move traumatized them a bit but I think they are getting settled now. Blondie started eating again which is a good sign of a return to normalcy for her.
I have hung most of my decorations. I still need to find a place for my 2002 Double Hockey (Men’s and Women’s) Olympic Gold plak – I had that done up years ago and I love it. I have found places for most everything else.
I don’t plan to move for a while. I doubt that I will be able to find a place that is better than this place. I am close to work, there is a convenience store across the street (very convenient) and a liquor store beside that for those times that I need that drink. There are shops down the street, gas stations, an M&M Meats. 17th Avenue SW is only a few blocks down and it has some of the best restaurants in the city on it – it is the entertainment district. I am sure that I will take jaunt down there in the summer.
So, all in all, I know that I will be very happy here – I am going to love it. 🙂
