oct 14-07.jpgSaturday was moving day once again…not for us this time but for Jay…who was moving into our Yaletown condo. Jay hired a truck and two movers to help with the process and Rick and I ventured to the condo at 9:00 AM to make sure it was ready for occupancy. Jay and his truckload of furniture arrived at 11:00 and Rick, Jay and the movers spent the next hour and a bit unloading and putting it away. I hung the curtains (which I had taken home to hem properly a month ago) and helped organize and put things away as best I could with Jay’s direction.

Just after lunch I received the call that our new, low-profile box springs and a chair to replace the broken one would be arriving in New Westminster in 45 minutes so I headed home to meet the delivery truck. Rick stayed behind to hang pictures while Jay unpacked boxes. When I returned the Yaletown condo had really come together and by 5:00 when we left, it looked like Jay had always lived there.

We had to head back home to meet Ian who was bringing over Makai and Monet for a sleepover at Granni and Grampa’s. Ian was leaving on an early morning flight for Boston and Karley and two of her girlfriends were having a sleepover of their own at Jay’s place. Our evening was eventful; two little kids in unfamiliar surroundings are naturally curious and they kept us on our toes. I was easily reminded why I had my kids when I was in my early twenties and still had lots of energy!

After a sleep deprived night (we don’t sleep well when we are listening out for little voices through the night) today, after Karley and her friends stopped by to take the kids home, Rick and I did some cleaning and spent the duration of our day recouping! Here is a picture of Jay’s new cosy apartment!
