Wednesday May 19, 2010 - Getting You Up to Date


More moving; Margie & John brought us new swing from them & Betty & Garth. I’ve always wanted a swing and this one is even better – it’s a hammock swing so the seat lays down into a bed. The ugly wallpaper peeled right off without much of a problem; John took the parts off with putty knife; Margie & I went out to the hardware store and got paint and switches & stuff.

Washer & dryer work fine so will cancel our new set at Leon’s.

We took Margie & John to dinner at Country Diner. It’s not much of a payment for all they’re doing for us!

Went back to Nancy’s to sleep; met Nancy’s sister & husband who were there for dinner; really tired; crashed at 8:30 PM.


Up early.

Took 1 load to house then returned to Ottawa; went to Leon’s; they canceled the washer/dryer without a problem; back to Nancy’s for another load; said goodbye’s to Nancy & Max; stayed our first night in the house.


Up early for the Cogeco guy to come to install internet, TV and phone service. He arrived around 9:30 a.m. Insurance agent came too to take photos of the oil tank and pellet stove.

After the Cogeco guy left we went out to get a new belt for the beater brush on our central vac; also returned a switch we had bought yesterday for our bathroom fan. John was trying to give us either two separate switches or a timed switch since every time you turn on the light the fan comes on too. A bit of a hassle but something we can live with; also went to the town offices to pick up a recycle box and some extra tags for garbage. We’re only allowed two items other than our recyclable stuff.


We started the day by tracking down the vehicle licensing office to get our addresses changed on our driver’s licenses and the truck ownership.

Then errands to run in Ottawa; John came to put the second coat of paint on the bedroom and brought his friend, Pete to help. We had lunch at Wendy’s in Ottawa and then stopped at Nancy’s to pick up some stuff we’d forgotten and stopped at the RV on our way home. Max was glad to see us!

We now have wifi in the house. It took a while for our router to decide it was going to work but now we’re ‘back to normal’.


  1. Congratulation on finally living in the new house. Hope you will be very happy there.

  2. "said goodbye’s to Nancy & Max" "Max was glad to see us!"

    I wonder how Max will get along now that his daily companions have moved away. In a few short months he seems to really be attached to you guys.

  3. I'm so glad that you're finally in and getting settled. I look forward to pictures when you have everything set up.

  4. Wow, you make me tired just reading all that you accomplished!

    Congrats on the new house and glad you are getting settled~!

  5. Congratulations!
    Phase 4 really started with your first night in the house! I hope the futon was comfy.

    If Nancy's new house is near your new house, maybe you can day-sit Max sometimes? That's like visiting grandkids, you can spoil them, and then they go home.
    Happy Tales, Penny, TX

  6. Congrats on moving in. I hope you're going to be very happy.
