Edmundo: What are you doing?
Ruth: Oh, I'm packing. My lease is up at the end of the month and I'm moving to Vancouver for six months while my boyfriend is finishing his degree at the university.
Edmundo: Oh, wow, are you moving yourself or are you using a moving company ?
Ruth: I'm renting a U- Haul and doing it myself. I'm putting some of my furniture in storage since we plan to move back here after he graduates.
Edmundo: Can I help? Do you need me to forward your mail?
Ruth: Thanks for the offer. I've submitted a change- of-address form to the post office so I hope my mail will get forwarded automatically. One thing I have to remember to do is to shut off the utilities‚Äîgas, electricity, and phone‚Äîbut I'll have two more weeks to do that.
Edmundo: Well, good luck in Vancouver. I don't envy you. I hate moving. Let me know if you need any help with those boxes.
Ruth: Thanks a lot. I appreciate it.
