New House

Well, we're all settled in to our new house!!! We ended up only having the help of one of Christopher's friends the night before the big move, but he was such a huge help! He and Christopher (and me...sort of) moved all the big furniture down to the ground floor so that I could help lug it out the next day to the truck.

On Friday, we got up early and rented the truck...that was an experience. It was a fairly good sized truck, manual (and the stick AND clutch were on the "wrong" side), and we had to park at the end of Wellington Street and walk about 200 ft the entire day... ugh. But, we mananged to get most everything in 2 loads on Friday and 1 load on Saturday. We were unpacked for the most part by Sunday (everyone ought to know by now how much I HATE boxes laying around) and we're settling in quite well. We live down a little road that ends in a cul-de-sac, so its really quiet and private. There's only about 9 or 10 houses down the road we live on and we've met over half the neighbors! Everyone is SO nice! We've already been invited to a bonfire for Guy Fawkes day (Watch V for Vendetta and you kind of get an idea about Guy Fawkes...or look out for a post on November 5th about it!) and another neighbor brought us over a delicious apple cake to welcome us to the neighborhood. I think we're going to be really happy in this house, its definitely a great fit.

I tried uploading pictures, but the internet connection at work sucks, and it wont upload. So, in the next couple of weeks, look out for some pictures!
