So we’re moving – as of March 1st. OMG, I’m moving again!! There is a sigh of relief that the search is over, but dread coming that we’ve got to sort and purge and pack and unpack. I’m assuming it will be a tad easier because Boo is older now and will be easier to manage – right? RIGHT? I’ve talked to him already about moving and of course, he wants to know why? How come? I said that our house is too old and we’re moving into a new house. He then said, “Then we’ll stay in the new house until it’s old and then find another new house.” We’re moving about 15 kilometres away to the North Shore -meaning I will have to go over a the most congested bridge in North America and be closer to the mountains. More snow and rain but let’s face it, we’re in Vancouver and it rains a lot no matter where you live. There’s already a tenanted suite downstairs, but we will have 3 bedrooms with master walk in closet (not huge American style), 2 full bathrooms, bigger living and dining area, our own washer and dryer and even a deck. The kitchen is unremarkable, but plenty of cupboard and pantry space. No yard, but that also means no more lawn mowing and leaf raking. Shops and restaurants are only a 5 minute drive away and there’s a nearby elementary school. Did I mention it’s cheaper? Goodbye tony west side with its tree lined streets,dog friendly Endowment Lands, and overpriced crappy old houses. Hello North Shore, big box stores and bear proof garbage cans. Oh, don’t worry about me, the liquor store is a also a 5 minute drive away.
