Nifty House Keys

weather: cloudy
outside: 4.6°C
mood: cheerful
I got extra apartment keys cut on designer painted keys in the Canadian Flag design and small flowers on blue for the three of us. They're more expensive than regular keys, but not too bad. And we don't get keys cut often, so I thought this would be funky-cool. =)

We've signed the rental agreement, handed in our security deposit and I just got our parking contract signed today. We have our security thingies for the parkade gate which was something I wasn't expecting at all. I thought we would be in a wide open area, but apparently, after 1800h, the gate is closed. I thought The Drug Store closes later than that.

Oh well. The earlier, the better, for us. =)

Telus (phone company) is automatically switching our phone service over to the apartment sometime at noon on February 28. The house will be forwarded to someone's cell until we're completely moved in.

Shaw (cable/internet) will send someone out on March 3. They don't have our buzzer number, so they'll be calling one of us on our cells. The box/panel that they need is outside the door of one of our neighbours, so I hope that won't be too much of a problem.

We have to pack... we have to pack... We. HAVE. T0. Pack.

I think we'll just move over the stuff we want, then sell the big things we don't want, donate the smaller things that aren't worth selling and can't give away.

Those are cool.

I should get some so I can distinguish amongst my keys more easily.

Sounds like you guys are moving into a really neat place.

There are a bazillion more here, here, here and here =)

But I think your best bet is to find a key-cutting kiosk and see if they carry them =)

do you mean you haven't started packing? don't see how it's possible to finish, if so! at least not for me

Hahaha, yeah, I don't either =)

A friend of mine got her keys cut for LSU (in Baton Rouge) and Saints (in New Orleans) to distinguish them.

I suppose you could have one house in Canada and the other in... a flower garden?

Ha =) We'll be getting keys again. I hope there will be more choice in key designs. =)

Oh god moving. Moving is a pain. Hopefully the packing goes quickly! You tend to accumulate so much stuff if you don't move, and you've been living there for quite a while, haven't you? Good luck! Sounds like you found an awesome apartment to move into.

Moving 5 times over 3 years meant that I really cut out a lot of excess junk in my stuff, so... hopefully the same thing applies. =) Good luck with the move! May you not be living out of boxes three months hence.

I know. We're going from over 10 years in 5600 sqft to 1200 sqft and probably only for a year or so, then moving, staying a year, then moving _again_.

This is going to be reeeeaaally interesting XD

Ohhhh geez. XD You're going to have to cut down so much stuff you didn't know you had. Good luck!

Oh man, the husband and I have 4 garbage bags full of clothes to donate already. XD

Yeah, thanks =)
