SOLD!

Do you hear that? Can you? Need a hint? Okay .... here is your hint .... what of late would cause a HUGE elated exhale of a sigh from me?

Yep - it is official; our house here in Cowtown is SOLD!! Now I know that it wasn't on the market all that long in comparison to others around here, but after one conditional sale that fell through, a turned down almost insulting low balled offer and multiple showings (averaging 1 -2 a day), our cute little starter like home has finally found a family to love it. The purchasers ironically are relocating from Cranbrook to Calgary and are an older couple so this house is up for some relaxing quieter times rather than the noisy chaos that my children create in it.

As I said to hubby last night on the phone, we are now 1/3 of the way there and that 1/3 is the toughest part. Now we just have to get a firm sale on the house down in Cranbrook and then begin the tedious task of moving all of our crap down there. And ... do you know what else this means? It means that the kids and I don't need to live on pins and needles worrying of making a mess and cleaning it up later. It also means that I can put up a few Valentine's decorations which I am also going to use for Masyn's first birthday seeing as she was born the day after.

I am so having a relaxing day today: toys are going to be left out, laundry will sit in that basket and folded later and I think in my little rebellion that the breakfast dishes will remain in the sink until at least lunch. Oh the luxury of this ........

I so know how you feel. I remember crying from relief after people put in an offer on our house. Yeah, it's so nice to leave things a mess.

Do you have a new house yet?

Jenn - we have a conditional offer on a house in Cranbrook. Our financing is in place and now the only thing that it is contingent upon is the house inspection. That happens on Monday so hopefully all will go well and we can remove those conditions and move to full sale.

We are looking at a March 20th possession date down there and our house here in Calgary is March 17th. With giving up our house on the 17th, I guess that means no beer drinking for this Irish lass ....
