So true, and yet we got two at the same time. Nuts!
Uhhh...make that 6 confirmed tornadoes last Friday. WTF!
Also, we confirmed our lease on the new place on Monday. I'm hoping to book the movers today after I get the last quotes. Bittersweet, but exciting.
Sometimes it is good to move ...
I had a follow up appointment at the sleep clinic yesterday afternoon. Parking at the hospital during the day is usually a pain, and this was no different, but the reward for having the last spot on the roof was a great view of the city. I would have taken more pictures, but a bee decided to attack me.
It's the most wonderful time of the year!
Just over one week until the full move. I've been back and forth between the old and new places a couple of times to move a few things ahead of time. I've run into some interesting hiccups along the way. The new house is in a brand new subdivision, and there are barely any neighbours. Canada Post recognizes the address, but there's no neighbourhood mail box yet. The municipality doesn't recognize the address, so I have no idea when garbage pick up is, if at all. This should all make for an interesting first few weeks.
Went for, possibly, my last hike through the trails near my old house. You know, just a typical Ottawa October day in the mid-30's with the humidity...?
That was crazy weather!
Also, gorgeous pic
Good luck with the full move.
This was my activity tracker from yesterday.
Dims, I’m in pain right now. Wednesday was move out day, and I was still packing things when the movers were working. Right now, I’m sitting in the empty new house waiting for the cable guy to show up (“between 9-12 am”, of course), and the movers will be here by noon to dump everything off. Then the unpacking begins...several days from now.
Calgon, take me away!
Good luck, and may the Advil be with you!
I'm finally settled in the new house. The area is actually way nicer than I expected it would be, and even though the new place is in a brand-spanking new subdivision there's a very charming, old "downtown" nearby. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I like it here so far.
I still miss Ottawa though. Anywhere you go in Ontario most places are similar in some ways, but living in the Capital had a different feel to it. It's a really underrated city, and a great place to live.
I've yet to find a decent pizza in the GTA though. How can an area with this many people suck so bad at pizza? HOW??
Glad it is working out. Are you in Makham, near unionville, by any chance? (My brother used to live in that area, and unionvUnio surprised me with how nice it was)
As for pizza, i don't know if this is the issue or not, but something I'd noticed ... Ottawa seems to be unique-ish in that most local places put the cheese on top of the other toppings and would really cook the cheese. I've not ffound that elsewhere, and missed it when in southern Ontario. Give me the Collonade or Bella Vista or any of many old pizza joints up here!
I don't know if I can handle the fast pace of the big city...
I'm not really seeing any Black Friday deals worth punching someone for. A few slaps, and maybe a wedgie or two, but that's it.
Hallmark Christmas movies should be experimented with as a potential form of torture.
What do you mean, potential?
Just checking in. I technically check in to Dims often, but I just haven't been in the mood to post anything. I'm sure I'm doing interesting things, I mean I don't FEEL bored, I just haven't bothered typing anything.
I'm two months in to lifting weights again, and today was the first day I flaked on it. It's too damn cold, and I'm not training for anything other than life enhancement anyways. I thought I'd drop more weight with the gym, but I'm up 10 pounds. I assume that's muscle.
I think I'm healthy...!
I recently installed a Ring doorbell. Today, I discovered I could change the door chime sound to a turkey gobbling.
So there's that.
LOL You'd be overwhelmed in Hamilton.
I've only been to the Hammer a couple of times, and I can't say I was overwhelmed or underwhelmed. I was pretty much just whelmed.
Also, this motto has been vexing me ever since I moved to Durham Region.
I'm quite amazed at how awful downtown Oshawa is, for starters.
I accepted a new job position yesterday, just waiting on the contract to make it official. It's going to require me to drive around Toronto, including downtown, so that's not a great thing but overall the job looks to be an excellent opportunity. The company I'll be working for will be opening a location in the Hammer by this summer, so I look forward to more whelm. I also get to drive to the paradise city known as Guelph once a month. Exciting!
Congrats on the new job!
