Settling In

Personally writen by Kyle Edginton

Now that we are in our apartment, we finally have the freedom to get down to work settling into our lives for the next couple of months.

To start with, we need reliable communication tools. What to do about cell phones? What to do about Internet?

Our first task actually started when we were at the Jameson Inn. We walked across to the Radio Shack and asked about cell phones for temporary needs, etc. We don’t need fancy bells and whistles, just a way to talk to people…with our voices…out loud. After going through everything, today we ended up with a Net10 phone. Very simple, no contract, good coverage.

Next we needed to worry about the Internet. Until today we had been using the wireless signal from a generous, unknowing neighbour. People here are so friendly, even when they don’t know it. Anyway, today we got our own dedicated line and a wireless router and it is all good now. Before, I was having to move my computer an inch here and an inch there to capture a signal strong enough to do anything.

Next I had to deal with the finances. Getting access to Canadian money while in the States takes a bit of manoeuvring, but I have learned a few things (mostly from mistakes) and things are finally falling into place. Unfortunately, it takes time on the cell phone to get it all taken care of.

After all that was done and dinner was finished we got a special treat. Sandpiper Apartments has a small theatre on site, just like a regular one, but smaller. Today we watched Hotel for Dogs. It was a great movie and all the kids loved it. They even provide free popcorn, nachos, candies and drinks. And the seats are comfortable! We may never leave this place! Next week it’s Bedtime Stories. We’ve already seen it, but I’m in for free candy, popcorn and soda.

It’s a good thing there is a gym here. This morning, I even hit the gym for the second day in a row. I opened the place up, even. I’ll be back there again tomorrow. In a few weeks, you won’t even recognize me. I’ll be so skinny. Oh wait, I am skinny. Well then, maybe I won’t be sooo skinny and actually have some mass.
