Oh, hello Friday! You are a special day for me, because today my boss officially knows I am out of here! I did a little dance of joy at my desk when I looked and saw a reply email from her to my “I quit!” email.
Now I am sitting at my desk listening to The New Pornographers just thinking about how it’s all finally happening, the wheels are in motion and there’s no turning back. The landlords all have notice, the new lease is signed, we have some new furniture, and I’ve got a hotel booked for the night that I will spend in Vancouver before getting the keys to the new apartment!
It’s terrifying and really exciting all at the same time.
I think this move is just what the doctor ordered though. New city, new people, new job, new apartment! I also found a doggie day spa that’s two blocks away from the new place, and it has DOGGIE TREADMILLS. Needless to say we’ll be trying that out when the rain gets really bad. I was also thinking of hiring a dog walker if things get really busy because the dogs tend to get a little destructive (for example, Winston finally finished off ruining my CHANEL glasses two days ago) when they don’t get a good walk in.
I can’t wait to take the pugs to the beach though! I am curious as to whether they’ll like the ocean or not. Zelda seems to like water, but Winston kind of stands in it like it’s yucky. Except when I have a bath…then for some reason they want to LEAP into the tub with me.
They will also get to go to their first Doggie Restaurant! Woo! Let’s hope Zelda doesn’t try and rip Winston’s face off for trying to steal her food in public like she does at home!
I’m sad to leave my family, especially my sister and niece, but it’s something that I think will be really good for me and Steve. Plus, someday when I have babies I will be able to tell them the story of the big move, and how mommy and daddy picked up all our stuff and made the leap of faith to move somewhere they knew they’d be happy.
