Monday night........

Well here I am pooped after a day of running here there and everywhere. The goal for Monday was to do all our errands and running around. Also to remember everything when we left the house, as we're not around the corner, and can just pop back to the house!!

We had to go back to the city where we lived to pick up a cheque from the lawyers office, pretty important, don't you think!!! So of course a trip to the bank was also in order. Had to change our drivers licences and the car log book. Return a couple of things, and go to Bell Canada store to cancel Wimax and get some money back. Overall returned over $200 worth of things, so money better in our account.

Sorted out the property taxes and gave them a cheque, and got a bunch of info on garbage pick up etc. Also got a fire permit, so we can burn brush/garden waste on our property. Great set of people who work in the town offices, I must say.

Decided to cancel the Toronto Star this morning, as I am not happy with the delivery and I think its only going to aggravate me, so better to cancel it. Also talked to the oil delivery man and got him sorted out, and pleased with the service we will be getting from him.

Finally got to check the bank online on Sunday night only to discover that the House Insurance payment had not gone out, so we were all in a panic about that, so had to call them first thing to make sure we were covered and to reorganize the direct debit.

Had an embarrassing experience on the weekend, as went to use my credit card and it was declined....aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!! So I was all in a panic about that, as I knew I hadn't spent THAT much. The week before we moved we got new credit cards, as the old ones were to expire at the end of April. So called to activate them and to change our address. For some reason they changed the address, but didn't activate my card. Fine get that done; then dh goes out on Sunday and uses his card, and lo and behold the same thing happens to him and he is NOT HAPPY!!!! So again we call MasterCard and again they had changed the address but not activated the card???

As we were out all day Monday, I didn't get a thing done around the house other than a load of laundry, which I got hung out to dry. Plus I did some ironing. I did also sort out all the receipts from the move and pay a couple of bills.

I am hoping as the week progresses to get some photos online and show you around the place. The goal for Tuesday is to unpack a pile of boxes, as I think looking at boxes everywhere does tend to be a bit depressing. I can't wait to get back into some sort of routine.

This will pass! (keep repeating this to yourself!) But it is exciting settling in a new community and a rural one at that!

Glad to hear you are at your new home, Gil. Sorry to hear about the difficulties - there always seems to be some *kinks* in the moving process. Soon you'll be settled and won't that be great?!!
Looking forward to seeing some pictures.
Hugs,

Gill, always remember to make a list before you leave home. When we first moved here, we would always forget something we had to do in the city. Now a list comes with us everytime we leave our home.

I'm glad things are getting more organized. Love the new picture for your heading. Hugs.

The joys of moving in now. Never mind, for all the hardwork and niggles, it will be behind you before you know it.
