IT IS DONE

The move! It's done!*

I couldn't be happier that I went with movers. They were there at 9AM on the dot with the truck, whereupon I put the kitty in the bathroom for a little while. (Later, when they were mostly done but one of the guys needed to use the bathroom, I put her in the livingroom window so she would have a little enclave that she could observe from, but that was too high to jump out of.) For me the move was mostly answering questions and staying out of the way.

My kitchen table needed to have the legs removed, and my couch wound up getting mostly taken apart in order to get it into the new place. They put both of them back together, no problems. They also brought up my old computer desk which I'm throwing out so I didn't have to lug it to the curb myself. All in all the move took two and a half hours. Including tip, I paid 385$. WORTH IT.

Not long afterward, the amazing [livejournal.com profile] clawfoot and the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] epi_lj came and helped move my kitty to the new place. Kitty!

I haven't unpacked much. I was a zombie for most of the rest of Saturday, and Sunday was [livejournal.com profile] amplepie's birthday party! It was nice to have an afternoon of sitting around relaxing with cool people after the silly week leading up to my move.

On my way home I stopped by the old place and picked up a few things - most importantly, my Bell modem (router? Thing? MAGICAL INTERNET BOX) so I can get the internet set up at my new place tonight. YAY!



*I still need to go back and collect one or two little things, put a bunch of stuff in the recycling/garbage bin, take my art off the walls, do some minor paint repair, and clean. But this is small potatoes.

  • I have internet at my new place! Sweet, sweet internet, how I missed you. (And by "missed you" I mean "missed being able to watch YouTube videos in HD instead of in 144p while using my phone as a mobile hot spot." To be truly without internet is a thing which I can scarcely fathom.)

  • I like the open feeling of the space in this place. It feels bright and inviting. I wish the ceilings and bulkheads were about... four inches higher.

  • DOUBLE SINK. I did some dishes tonight and I forgot how much I missed having a double sink. Need to buy a plug though. The one that's here straight up doesn't fit.

  • Going to need to get creative with the cupboard space. It's at a high premium in this place. I have a weird wirey shelf that came with the house that I'm thinking of turning into a place for pans and pots. And maybe dish cloths/towels.

  • Shower is done phase one. Two more phases over the next couple of days.

  • Tomorrow is Update All the Address Junk Day. First up: driver's licence and health card.

  • I am unpacking very, very, very slowly. I am pretty much okay with this. (Though it'll be nice when stuff is put away. Just... not quite as nice as taking it easy after a nutty couple of weeks.)
