Hello all: Well, we are that much closer to being moved in. Every day I haul at least one load of boxes to the house. By doing this, we will have a relatively (I HOPE!) easy move on the 23rd. We have got our frineds, Angela, Roy, Bonnie, Dwayne, and Tina all helping. Whew!
Angela and Roy are coming from Victoria on Friday, the 22nd and will be staying overnight at the house. Good thing we got our new bed coming this week. Roy and I will head over to the apartment on Friday night and get everything ready for the big move. Dwayne, Tina and Bonnie will be meeting us at the apartment on Saturday morning.
Alex and Angela will stay at the house and wait for Telus to arrive to set up our internet, cable, and TV. That may be the easier job but, since there is so much cabling lying around, I somehow doubt that it will be easy…. My biggest fear about moving the services is that I have over 80 hours of TV that I have PVR’d and I am scared that I will lose it all…. AUGH!!! NO, I haven’t seen a single episode of Falling Skies and I will be seriously choked if it disappears on me.
Back to the move. What we have left at the apartment is the sectional sofa, sofa table, freezer, armoire, 3 dressers, Alex’s sewing desk, the computer desk, computer, two tv’s, sideboard, barbecue, 3 shelving units, 2 dining room chairs and one easy chair. Hopefully, it will all go in one shot and with little or no trouble. I am worried about the sectional. It has a queen sized sofa bed in it. *shudder*. I recall the difficulty we had moving it into the apartment.
I think that we are going to toss it over the balcony. Don’t laugh! Our balcony is 4 feet off the ground. So, to save energy, frustration and grunting, over the balcony it will go….
So, back to the house. Alex has been working tirelessly to get the place ready. Every day I come there and I am literally blown away by the progress he has made. Walls are all painted, floors are clean, kitchen is completely organized, the dining room is set up, shelves are in their place, plants are getting situated and so many tiny details that make it look like a home are done. I couldn’t be prouder of him.
I took a ton of pictures but, of course, I left the camera at the apartment. *sigh*. Will post them all in the next day or so.
