One week in our new (sort of) home and so far all is going well.
Not everything is done, as far as the details of moving, anyway.
Little things like re-doing the closets to allow more usable storage space, hanging the artwork, figuring where to put all of my CD's, etc., are still in the "we'll get it done soon" stage.
Going from 1,500 sq. ft. to 573 sq. ft. demands some adjustments, discarding, and existing in cramped quarters. All in all, though, the adjustments are definitely worth it.
Some of us, in particular, are loving the changes. The JoJo Dog has become a City Girl with ease, and we don't think she is missing her life on Jolly Bay at all. The West End 'hood has an active "critter" population being adjacent to Stanley Park. She's already seen numerous black squirrels, flying fowl of all sorts including the Great Blue Heron nesting area, raccoons, and - believe it or not - skunks. All in a teeming metropolitan area. The four-legged child is in doggie heaven.
She has even almost mastered the elevator ride in the building. Initially the moving floor under her feet was quite disturbing to the child. After a week, it is becoming the "norm" in her everyday life.
And, as of Friday, she's now completely legal with her new City of Vancouver dog license.
Life is good . . . .
