We got on the road to Montreal this morning right on time (despite forgetting our face masks and having to return home). Other than that, and accidentally breaking the cup holders off the Peloton when loading it into the truck, the start of the journey and the drive to Montreal was very smooth.
Then, we arrived at my new home. I’m not going to say that everything went south because nothing really went wrong, thankfully. But things could have been better. The security person in the lobby was pretty gruff, though he was mostly helpful, so I shouldn’t complain too much. Unloading the truck was annoying because we had to do it from the busy street, so we always needed someone to stay with it. It was a struggle to find the parking lot and in the end, Chris worried about taking the truck in, fearing that it would be too tall. We did walk through the parking lot though, to find my spot and I was annoyed to learn that I have to walk up a flight of stairs before I can take the elevator to my floor, which will make any sort of shopping a pain. I also realized while unpacking that I need a lot of storage solutions to wrangle my small items and I also need power solutions (power banks and extension cords). On top of all of this, I’m generally freaking out that I have to go to work on Tuesday … I’m feeling overwhelmed and exhausted.
It’s 8:30 pm on Saturday evening and I’m actually wondering when I can go to bed. I hope tomorrow I will feel less freaked out and homesick. Maybe after I get groceries and some niceties to make the place feel more like home and less like a hotel, I’ll feel much better. And hopefully Monday I can relax and maybe even venture out on my own a little bit before (OH MY GOD) starting my new job as a CFO on Tuesday.
Enjoy some photos!
