I guess I’d forgotten that when you move, you need to change your address with a lot of places. I believe you can do some f it through Canada Post, but the last time I checked, it was around $100, I don’t think so. I don’t even forward my mail with them. I get, maybe, two pieces of mail a month. I get auto insurance pink slips and a statement about my investments, that’s about it. Most things, I get via email, save the paper, save the stamp. I don’t remember the last time I wrote a cheque, it has been ages anyway.
I haven’t updated my drivers license of course, I will wait until I’ve moved to do that. Everything else, I think, has been updated. Feels good to get that out of the way early. I setup electricity and gas yesterday as well, with Enmax. Locked in an electricity rate for three years, I’m sure costs will only go up. Gas is a flexible rate, not surprised they don’t let you lock that in. The place I’m moving to has a high efficiency furnace, so that should cut down on costs. I’ll change light bulbs to compact fluorescent when I move in.
Packing is next. I’ve started. Dress clothes, that I used to wear to work are packed. As is my second closet with stuff I really should donate. I don’t think I’ve worn any of it since I moved here, there was dust on the shoulders of the stuff I packed away. Most of the packing will have to wait until right before I move. I can’t disassemble my office desk as I’ll need it to work. Kitchen stuff is the last day as well. Oh, how I love packing.
I was acclaimed as th Secretary for Babe Ruth Calgary on Sunday night. It will be good being on a baseball board of directors again. It’ll give me something to do over the winter. Since I am moving, I don’t think I’ll be able to continue with the Calgary centre EDA, we have too many board members from outside the area now, I think. I’ll likely join the EDA in my new area.
Saturday is th final regular season home game for the Calgary Stampeders. The Roughriders are in town. I’m going to the game with a die hard Roughriders fan, should be a good time. I’ve decided not to renew my tickets for next year though. I enjoyed it, but not as much as I’d hoped I would. I don’t feel like shelling out $700 for a pair of tickets. I’ll catch a game or two, that’ll be good enough.
Almost the weekend, enjoy it. Happy Halloween.
