Got gas?

Well here we go. We are moving in just over 2 weeks. Yesterday I booked the movers and set up all of our utility accounts. I had to think really hard to remember that I would be paying for a gas account and electricity. We haven't had accounts with the hydro company and the gas company since 2003 and it was like not a day had gone by. Luckily we left those accounts in good standing so we didn't have to pay any huge deposits or anything and the customer service agents seemed surprised when they asked if Superman was still on the accounts too and I said yes. It's been six years of worry free apartment living, three different apartments in that time, we've only been at this place for 14 months.
In remembering some of the places we have lived together, and so far there have been 5 in the last 20 years, we realized that they were all great. We moved into every one with a feeling of excitement and anticipation and hope for new beginnings. We didn't always leave feeling that way, sometimes we were more than ready to go and other times , not so much. I always figured that if you are a renter you should explore many different types of lifestyles until you find out what really works for you. The great thing is being able to move when you feel like it. Try another neighbourhood, another type of home. I admit , I find it exciting and I love moving. Not the physical act of packing and carrying boxes but setting up a new household and making it a home and figuring out how to fit it all in and make it work, I love that.
The other day SM said to me, "I love you because you are a girl who likes adventure and if it weren't for you I would have always just stayed in the same place." I love the fact that he still wants to go on adventures with me and by this time he knows we will make it work no matter where we end up. That's trust.

As much as it's a pain to move house, I love it too... it's like a blank slate. A change is as good as a rest, innit?

Oh, Superman's comment was so wonderful! Happy Valentines.
I hate moving, but only because I have a lot of books and stuff so I hate the moving boxes part too - although the next time we move we are definitely hiring people to move all that crap for us -which'll make a huge difference.
I agree with you though - the moving to a new place and the excitment and anticipation are wonderful. The chance to paint things and arrange things just so and completing the tasks of putting rooms together is all very satisfying.
And good to hear you didn't have any problems with utilites - I've so many horror stories it's nice to hear something positive.
I hope we have a wonderfully warm and sunny summer so you can enjoy your Y-A-R-D!
