4 days til moving day

I went from 31 days to 4 days really quickly! Probably because the seller of our new house wanted to change the possession date from August 15 to August 3rd. And of course, being all excited to get into our new house we jumped at the chance. Yep. Real smart. Especially having no buyer for the house we live in now, and having no jobs. But hey, lets move two weeks early!

There's also our annual week at Delta beach with the husband's family. That happens to be this week so there's really been no holiday there. Packing is so fun.

Okay, I really have nothing to write about. I just wanted to put something on this page. I'll add a picture of Jordan, that makes it all worthwhile.

17 days to possession day

Our 31 days to moving day just took a huge trim. Our agent called today to let us know that the sellers of our new house would like us to take possession as early as August 3rd. Being young and insane, we said "what the heck" and decided to go for it. We'll probably move on the 4th, being a Saturday. It's obvious we don't have much of a social life, having decided to move on August long weekend. What a treat though, moving at the beginning of the month, instead of the middle or end. Now I'll have a whole month to enjoy my new house and proximity to friends and family of yore, instead of just a couple of weeks. After all, I am planning to work in September. Only 18 days then, until we move!

Now all we have to do is sell our house.

We had a meeting with our comfree representative tonight. Now I'm slightly more confident in our ability to do this thing, but a little worried about the tactics of the wily real estate agents who are waiting in the shadows to catc…

31 days to moving day

I've begun the countdown. It's the type of thing that those of us with no social life do. Although looking at my calendar, it would seem that my social life isn't so bad this month. I'm going to see Bonjovi next Saturday, should have a lot of company on Sunday, and then the following Tuesday I'll be traveling in another country. Not so bad at all.

Back to moving. 31 days to go. In the meantime, we have to ready our house, show it, find a buyer, pack up house and enlist the help of various friends and relatives to come and assist us with our move. I am very tired of working on this house. I was so excited when I bought it, but I have begun to resent all the extra work it's been. We knew we'd have to peel wall-paper and paint the whole place, but there were hidden jobs that only came up after. For instance, when we pulled out the fireplace we discovered a big burned hole in the wall behind it. This meant having to pull down the wall, insulate, and then build a…

If your whole body were a hot air balloon, would you stop eating spicy food?

I clicked on "random question" from the blogger. I guess it's for people who really can't think of anything to write. The question was "if your whole body were a hot air balloon, would you stop eating spicy food?" Even as I was reading the question, I thought how stupid is that? It is a stupid question! So stupid in fact that it's really funny! Who comes up with this stuff?

I guess my answer is this: If my whole body were a hot air balloon, I don't think I'd be all that hungry. I don't recall ever seeing anybody flinging food into a hot air balloon before. But I suppose that if I were a hot air balloon, and I was able to eat spicy food, then hell yeah! How fun would that be? Get all those poor suckers miles into the air and then let the effects of the spicy food be known. mwahahahahahahah!!

facebook woes

I've finally become one of those cool people who have a Facebook page and a blog. Doesn't get any better than this! "Join facebook" everyone says, so I do. It's a lot of fun at the beginning when all your new friends are writing on your wall and checking out your pictures, then the novelty of your presence wears off, and everyone goes back to their much cooler friends. Of course you convince yourself that they must all be at work, or that your computer hasn't refreshed itself, so you click refresh and wait eagerly for all the new posts to pop up, so that you have a wonderful way to spend two hours in the afternoon while the kids are napping and the housework is piling up. Still nothing. Okay, well it is silly to expect stuff to just continue to come, so you go upstairs, make a snack, drink some ice-tea, throw some discarded kiddie pants onto the stairs for the next time you go up. It's now been a good 15 minutes, there MUST be something new on facebook! B…
