It’s Getting Closer!

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.

Here’s how you move over a province! (I think)

I like to decorate homes. Maybe I missed my calling in life because I did so badly at math in high school, but I think I would make a pretty swanky interior designer. Since I get to move in LESS THAN A MONTH (HOLY CRAP!), I thought it was time that I re-evaluate our current décor.

I think the décor of our apartment currently fits more with the type of house that it is—old. I’ve been thinking that when I finally move that I’d like to make some upgrades in our furniture. I’m pretty much looking at a serious overhaul of a lot of our stuff—all within a few thousand dollar budget, of course.

I’m actually looking at buying a new TV, which is one purchase I’ve never made before! I’m looking forward to a nice, clear picture on the screen instead of the slightly blue-tinged right-hand corner of the screen that I have now. The TV that we have also emits this really awful, high-pitched noise that gets louder whenever something bright or white comes on screen. Needless to say I don’t enjoy watching shows where there’s a lot of snow involved.

Anyhow, before I go I am going to get a lovely LCD TV for Steve and I to watch. I guess it’s my last hurrah from going from a job that pays a LOT to one that pays enough to get by.

I also made the grand purchase of a sofa yesterday! Woo! I can’t wait to sit on it. Oh man. Anyhow, I bought it from the EQ3 in town so that I can have it made, and then have someone deliver it to Vancouver so that I save myself the PST! Don’t ask me why I am going so insane over saving around $14, just let me think I am really saving a whole lot of money. Money for glorious purchases like potato chips and slurpees and tuna subs and all the things I am currently craving.

Seriously, tuna? What’s up with me?! I go on these crazy tuna binges for weeks at a time, and then I don’t eat another tuna sub for two months! Perhaps the fish eater in me is getting prepared to chow down on sea life?

Anyhow, when I move I will be leaving with a shitload of blankets, the dogs, a TV, and some clothes. Yikes! I plan to make the whole apartment into a blanket fort for Steve’s arrival. That, or at least some kind of blanket nest ala Big Bird.

Man, I’m getting a headache just thinking of the move! EEEEEK!
