Well lets see what's happening on the moving house situation. I picked up around 40 boxes Friday morning from the grocery store that they had saved for me. So I think we are all set with those. I can't believe people go out and buy boxes to move with. Mind you we did buy a couple of closet boxes a few years ago and we have used them again and again, as have other people. We are getting more closet boxes from the moving company that they are lending us for when we move.
I have got a few boxes packed, and have them stacked in the dining room. Have to say it looks a bit strange with no pictures on the walls. It makes them look very bare. Most of my ornaments are packed as well, so at least there is not as much to dust now!!!
We are still struggling with the insurance issue and we have got various quotes and I think we have finally got it narrowed down. It has been a draining time though, as each phone call to the insurance company can last an hour, and each person you talk to has something different to say. Plus we keep getting conflicting information from each company. They are quoting between $400,00 to $549,00 to rebuild the house, that is a wide range of pricing don't you think? As I said before I think we have decided on the company and will call them next week to finalize it.
We have an appointment with the bank to sign all the paperwork next week, so that's a good job done. All the utilities have been notified and told when to do the last readings. I have set up an account with the new hydro company. Although everything is set up for the phone, Internet and satellite, all the appointments are still screwed up and I can't sort them out until the second week of April.
Have an appointment set up for the middle of May to see about getting an alarm system installed in the new house.
I have to start on the change of address for all the magazines, credit cards, and other things. Have to go to the post office and do a change of address with them, I think that's $200 for the year.
One thing for sure it's all money, money, money at the moment.
I am plowing through the pantry and trying to use up bits and bobs, which is proving to be interesting. I got a few instant pudding mixes given so we are eating those with the canned pears for dessert every night!!! I am now down to 13 jars of canned pears!!
As I am packing I am putting things aside I don't want, as we are planning on having a garage sale the week before we move. If we can make a few dollars that would be great, however yard sales don't normally start to around May around here, so fingers crossed April 25th will be a dry fine day!!
