Moving

Move In Day !!

Move in Day!

If you are moving into a property you own – Congratulations!  I was moving into a townhouse rental which I had only seen online.  I’d previously set up a craigslist, apartments.com and zillow search so I would be automatically notified for any rentals coming available in Bend.  Once I saw one I liked, at the right price, I jumped on it.  At first I was 2nd in line but the next day they called and said I could proceed with the application process.  Woohoo, I already had a place to call my new home.

After going to the property management office, I took the keys and arrived!  Much larger and nicer than I thought it would be, I did a full walk through – EVERYONE must do this before you move in anything, so you can see any defects and list them – with renting it can affect your security deposit when you eventually move out.

Now I must say, it wasn’t the warmest of days, it actually hit 35 degrees as a high, the coldest day of the year so far – typical!  I had also pre-arranged for move in help via two guys – Mountain Movers – I had found under a google search.

We got everything inside, then went to pick up a washer and dryer and dresser I had found on FB Marketplace, and a sofa I found at a local consignment store.

The cable guy came that afternoon to hook me up (!) already pre-arranged along the gas and electricity that were also on.  The garbage company dropped off my cans the next day.

Done!

I was a forever San Diego/Lake Tahoe gal for 37 years until I visited Bend and fell in love ... with everything about this beautiful city. I raced back to So Cal, got a moving van, packed everything I loved (and couldn't live without) and hit the road for Bend, Oregon. Just like that. Now I'm a "Bendonian" discovering everything about the city and surrounding areas. And I want to share it all with you, the good, the wonderful and the best places to shop and eat. So I started this blog to document both the journey and to find ways to make it easier for you when you pull up stakes and strike out for your own life in Bend!
