We rolled into Alberta last night around 5pm and criss-crossed the city looking at 5 different potential places to live. I wanted to move as quickly as possible but things are not exactly following MY timeline. I’m waiting to hear from my #1 place (it wins in all categories except for price [a bit more pricey each month] and neighbourhood [nice but near an industrial area]). So we’re sitting twiddling our thumbs until this evening when we hear because I can’t do much else around here without an official address like change my license, get insurance, buy my car, sign my work papers….and…so…………..on.
The second choice room is in a house, a really nice neighbourhood, a little closer to work, really cute place, I get the place to myself at least 50% of the time BUT I would have to live with two dudes I won’t meet until next week (they work up north in Fort McMurray) and I would have to take the small room until November. The more I think about it this almost becomes my first pick because of the neighbourhood and distance to work….is that weird that I am willing to live with strangers? I guess I have done it before.
As for all-the-people-on-the-edge-of-your-computer-chairs waiting patiently to find out which car I would choose – wait no longer. Ok, keep waiting, I have anxiety issues with saying things before they are official so wait until tomorrow and I’ll let you know what I buy. But it is hanging out in the sold lot waiting for me to give it a good home but first I need to find that home. I even got it a present today: a swanky new GPS. Best. Investment. Ever.
