    Goodbye Mount Pleasant!

    Well, we are now out of our home on 11th ave and into the Parizeau's (some friends here) for the next 3 weeks. It was sad leaving our house, it's such a great house..and the area around it, called "Mt. Pleasant" is an area where I've lived for most of my time in Vancouver. On my DTS we lived in a house there, then as a staff I shared a home with 3 others, then a year later I had an appartment, and last year another house with Craig. All within a few blocks from each other...weird. I liked it though. I'll miss it.

    I've had a chance to cool down about this, but you'd never guess what happened on friday... So for the past few weeks, we've had the moving company booked to come on the 30th of June. We have the confirmation emails about it, and had talked to the people who booked it on and off throughout the last week especially. So each day we were sort of trying to pack things away, but we had left a lot to do on friday because we were still using so much stuff, especially the kitchen and bathroom. So friday morning after I had already gone to work, Craig calls the actual moving guys (that come in the truck) to confirm a time they will be coming on Saturday, and the guy says "How about 1". So Craig says sure, and then the guy says something that causes Craig to say "Saturday, right?" And the guy says, "No, today"....WHAT?!?!?!????? After a quick panic and phone call to our contact at the booking office, Craig finds out that the miscommunication must've happened between the middle man, and the moving guys. They had booked us for the 29th instead, even though our confirmation page says 30th, and there's absolutely nothing they can do about it..yikes...

    So Craig calls me at around 9:30 am, and tells me the news..... I tell him that there's no way we can move today, they are just going to have to come back tomorrow. They cannot change it on us. After using some choice words and threatening to sue, I begrudgingly rushed home (Henri came to help to, luckily) and we started throwing everything in boxes. We were still packing up as the movers were putting the boxes on the truck....it was not good. Because of the rush and chaos of everything, there was so much that did not get on the truck. Too much to fit in the car...so we might have to mail it home. We will be sending them the bill for that, as well as the $ we missed for both having to miss work that day. Ugh..it was a mess..

    But now it's over, thank goodness, and we took yesterday to clean the whole house and get the rest of our stuff out. We are now settling in to our new temporary home.
