We’re trying to sell our house and having ‘a moment’ with our rep who hasn’t contacted us much, if at all. We’re trying to buy a house and having issues with a seller who constantly changes the parameters of the sale. We’re moving to a new province and we’re working out travel arrangements and who will go, when. We’re making arrangements for the dogs, the car, the kids, the stuff, the transportation and all the little details in-between.
Looking forward to moving to a province where every one tells me life moves at a slower pace, because dudes, I could use some ‘slow’ in my life right about now.
Okay, let’s play ‘who wants to buy a house’!?
Here is the listing:
Keeping in mind that the chaotic looking kitchen has since been gutted and repainted and shows much better than it looks.
This house has:
Seen three children become teenagers and two graduate from high school. That’s some good educational karma. PLUS we’re right across the street from a school and a block from downtown, and yet still quiet. And if that weren’t enough, we’re on the same street as the hospital so we’re always plowed first in the winter. Bonus!
Seen many amazing parties, birthday and other, and it fabulous for hosting get togethers.
Speaking of which, because it’s an older house with really high ceilings, this house dresses up for the holidays like no one’s business. Last Christmas I had four trees in here and it wasn’t crowded, it was like a Bing Crosby song.
There are no really weird or creepy sounds in this house that I’ve noticed. Also, there are no stories of people who have died here, so, no ghosts. Extra bonus!
This house is warm when you need it to be, cool when you want it to be, large enough to have lots of friends and family over and yet warm and inviting. It’s the house that we stepped into five years ago after two years of searching and finally both said ‘this feels like home’. I can tell you, if it’s left too long empty after we move, this house will get sad.
So, with all the insanity that comes with a regular move added on to the stress of moving out of province and of our family living in two different places for two weeks, I’m about ready for the good news to start rolling in.
Thankfully, I have great friends who have been not only supportive but have had all kinds of wonderful things to say to us in these days leading up to the big sayonara (Greig and Alex, we CAN’T WAIT to see you on Saturday) and amazing families who have helped us paint, clean, weed and otherwise prep the house in a short span of time.
I even have wonderfully supportive ‘online’ buddies who have taken the time to send me emails and messages on facebook and all kinds of goodwill.
So, I breathe in, breathe out and remember that there is nothing but good ahead of me.
If I can just make it to mid-July.
