Finally, I can post. It's not that I haven't tried because I was only without computer a day but maybe just as well you were spared the whinning I might have been doing anyway. Since I can't seem to access the original threads I may as well start a new one. New life, new thread. It works for me.
So, I have been in Kelowna since Friday night. I was very glad I had put snow tires and new wipers on (they were going nearly all the way here and my car was caked by the time stopped) but the drive itself was not too hair raising even if there was no safely going over the speed limit for 80% of it. I do love snowy cloudy mountains because they are so moody so that part was kind of cool. Kind of like a kid's story about crossing the big snowy mountains and entering a protected green valley. THERE IS GREEN GRASS HERE AND LEAVES ON TREES STILL!!!!!! It's so neat to feel transported back in time to the beginning of fall.
Meanwhile I am in a where-were-you-in-'82 hotel room we could all have a good time updating. I am also very glad I decided to throw the feather duvet in the car as this mattress is made of some sort of concrete I think so the duvet is playing the roll of pillow top. I am a soft sinky mattress type person so this hard stuff isn't condusive to sleep for me.
The move went reasonably smooth considering how moves go. My Realtor pulled yet another rabbit out of her hat and if I don't figure out a way to calm down about it she will find me reporting her to the Realestate Board. I swear just when I thought she couldn't cause me any more grief...you'd think she was paying me the way she behaved. Very unprofessional ending to a shakey relationship.
Anyway it's done and I think if I did it again I'd get rid of everything possible and avoid moving furniture etc as it just makes more sense. I gave away all my kitchen stuff excep the good ol' Paderno pots and oodles of other stuff from all parts of the house and still had a lot to bring. My car was packed with more than I expected so I couldn't bring some groceries I had hoped to bring and poor Eb was limited to the front passenger seat for the whole trip so she wasn't impressed. I think my stuff was supposed to arrive today for storage. Originally they were storing it in Calgary but changed it at the last minute. I can't wait to see my bed again that is for sure. I have free storage for 60 days so no rush to keep costs down on that when it comes to finding a place to live.
I made the mistake of looking on the MLS today and there was a nice little ol' house that to me is perfect, great price (and it has a pool too although I am not sure that is a good thing). I have to keep telling myself no, rent until you know what is what but boy am I tempted to see that house and if there is any way to wangle it. I'm just waiting for the money to hit the bank so I can start looking for a place to live. I'm not sure how easy that will be given my attitude about renting needs some adjusting that is for sure. Maybe I should go see that house just to see because maybe just maybe it's all icky inside or something and that will get it off my mind. Maybe a driveby tomorrow eh? Just a look see?
