I am writing this from the comfort of my new unit! 😀 I moved in yesterday. I used El Cheapo movers and they were SUPER GOOD! Came in right at the amount I budgeted for including their fifty dollar tip! Got everything done in about three hours, and only one thing got broken and that was due to my bad packing skills. I’ve got almost the whole apartment unpacked. There are about five boxes still left to go, but there were over 25 boxes originally, so I think it’s gone pretty well!
I LOVE my new space! 😀 It’s so sunny and beautiful and the dogs are happy and I am happy. There’s a sun porch and nice floors and I need curtains but it’s ok for now! The appliances are new so they are nice and quiet. I haven’t used the stove yet but it’s gas so that will be exciting.
There’s still some left to unpack and rearrange. BUT overall I am really happy with how things have turned out. The pups and I have gone for walks around this very big block, but we need to get a good longer route figured out.
I don’t know where the garbage, recycling, laundry, or storage is, so when the office opens again on Tuesday I have a lot of questions to ask of them. ALSO apparently tomorrow is a holiday, so it’s dubious I will get my grant money then. BUT maybe tuesday? Hope so!
I never want to move again! I want to live here forever! I have to be sure to be a good tenant so I don’t screw up! It’s in such a nice neighborhood and so close to downtown. I mean, basically it is downtown! I’m a block away from Riverdale Farm and the Necropolis and Parliament is just a short walk to get to some grocery stores. I’m disappointed in the selection at No Frills, but for basics it’s good.
And there’s a Loblaws just a short streetcar ride away.
Having all this light is amazing. I hope this place is warm in the winter. My friend Terri pointed out one thing that might make it a bit chilly, but I think I can insulate it when the time comes.
I’m kind of amazed by how much I have unpacked!
