The Unfamiliar Becoming Familiar Again

It’s been a banner day today.

After three trips to the insurance broker I finally have BC insurance and plates on my car. Cha-ching! (We insured two vehicles in Washington for the cost of one vehicle here in BC, but that’s a story for another day.)

It only took two trips to Service BC to get my BC driver’s license. Cha-ching!

Gerry and I now have BC cell phones. Cha-ching! (But it turned out that they weren’t as pricey as I had feared AND we got two free tablets as part of the deal!) This was an interesting transaction as, in conversation with the most-helpful salesman, we learned he had gone to elementary school with one of our sons and we know his grandparents. Gotta love coming back home again.

I enjoyed a coffee visit with a friend this morning at a new place I hadn’t been before. It’s such a treat to catch up with friends again.

I’m getting used to the pay parking meters and learned today that you’re actually not paying for a parking space but for the time so you can move your vehicle if you’re going to more than one place downtown. Nice feature.

Starting to remember to take a quarter or a loonie with me when I go to the grocery store so I can get a grocery cart. Had totally forgotten about this when we got back to Canada.

It’s a sunny first day of spring today. Life is good.

I’m off to get our new phones set up now. Two brand new devices to configure (four if you count the free tablets). It’s a dream come true for a techie like me. :-)
