What I did on my winter vacation

I'm only slowly coming out of vacation mode. Though I justify that somewhat by the fact that all of this 'relaxing' has been interspersed with errands and further checking off of the items necessary to establish myself as a resident of this new state. I've been here less than a week and knocked off a good number:
  • Driver's License
  • Car Registration
  • Library Card
  • Gym Membership
  • Waited for the satellite TV guy (even if he didn't come, it's still something I did)
  • Gotten a name and number for Scooter's OT
  • Left a message for Scooter's gymnastics
  • Canceled Canadian automobile and residential insurance (even if I'll need to follow up next week since the last person I spoke to there mentioned that they sometimes lose track of faxes)
  • Made our first mortgage payment
  • Checked on the progress of our floor-refinishing (they look gorgeous!)
There's plenty to write about, but you'll have to excuse me if my mind is unable to move from list-form for a bit.

I've lived here for a year, and just went and got a library card today.
You're efficient. (or go to the library a lot!)

In Toronto, Trillian used the public library a lot--I was always at the university library. But Springfield has an amazing library for a town its size! The three of us have gone as a family twice already, and I have plans for going at least weekly if Scooter's not in morning preschool.

That is quite an impressive list.
I'm particularly impressed with the gym membership and the FIRST MORTGAGE PAYMENT! YAY!

We actually still have to pick up our gym membership cards. They took our pictures, but didn't have it printed out right away. Trillian's already worked out there; me not so much.
