So tomorrow is our moving day, and it looks like our internet won’t be hooked up in the new place until Jan. 5th. I’ve been attempting to recruit people to help with the move – fortunately my brother has just moved to the lower mainland from Ottawa, and he and his girlfriend offered to help using my mother’s minivan.
I rather wanted to hire movers with a truck, since we don’t really have that much stuff and we didn’t want to have to deal with the physical labour of moving ourselves for once. Sadly, the budget did not allow for such things, and so I’m recruiting friends and family. Great fun. I don’t think I’d know where to start looking for movers, either way – never actually used one before. At least we can offer the standard pizza. I’d offer beer, but so far no one helping us actually likes beer except my brother.
I really, really hope that this time we stay in the place for a long time. I don’t expect to ever be able to purchase a home in the Vancouver area, but it would be good to be renting a place that’s nice enough to settle into.
Maybe we’ll even have a housewarming party.
