It is official!

As of 9AM this morning, we own a house (conditional on finance and house inspection of course!)!

We went back and forth a few times but the point of problem was the closing date! LOL We originally went in with the 13th of May, they came back with the 27th, we went back with the 20th and they came back again with the 27th! 😦 So, our closing is now May 27th which is totally doable but puts a wrench in our two weekend clean one move the next plan.

So, we get the keys by 6PM on Friday, then the plan is that I will clean at the new house (steam and everything) on the Saturday while Pat loads up the truck at the condo (we cannot book a move on a Sunday so all of our stuff will have to be out on the Saturday or it won’t get out till Monday). Then, Sunday morning we can spend the day unloading and unpacking at the new place. That gives us Monday to go back to the condo and make sure we didn’t miss anything and to hand our keys over to the landlord! It will be a jam packed weekend but it should be fine!

We have the house inspection booked for this Saturday but I don’t anticipate them finding any problems.

We had a busy weekend that just passed. Saturday we went to my aunt and uncles for Natalia’s 1st birthday party! We had a great time and the birthday girl looked like an absolute princess in her party dress (even when she had blue icing on her forehead!). I started with a bit of a scratchy throat on Saturday as well but I was hoping to fend it off. I had no such luck and woke up Sunday morning barely able to speak. I had a bridal shower to go to so I took a nice long hot shower and it did feel a bit better. However, by the end of the day, I was useless and got home and crashed on the couch for the evening! Hubby got home from a visit with his mom at about 9PM and was sweet enough to make me some soup. My throat is still pretty scratchy today and I slept very badly last night so, I am trying to get stuff done so I can go home early.

I don’t understand what it is with me and getting sick during major life events! LMAO I remember the NASTY UTI and ear infection I got the week before my wedding and now the week that we buy a house I get this nasty sore throat!



  1. CONGRATS!! That’s awesome!

    Maybe the sicknesses are a psychological thing. I know someone who gets sick every year on their birthday. Either that or just bad timing.

    Feel better!


    • I think it is just bad timing! 😦 I am home again today sitting in front of my humidifier trying to loosen everything up!

  2. WOOHOO!!! LOVE the new house Sue!!! How exciting!!!

    Hope you start to feel better soon!!

    Love Dane 🙂

    • Thanks! We cannot WAIT!!! It is going to be a long 3 months!

  3. I’m so excited for you both – you forgot the moving factor before major life events 😉 Hope you feel better soon – there’s a sore throat going around work – lots of warm liquids and soft foods are good for you! Any word on Pat’s exam yet?

    Talk to you guys soon!


    • No word from Toronto yet on the test. I think we should hear next week!!!

  4. CONGRATS!!!! I am still jealous!!!!

    • LOL Thanks!

  5. Congrats on the new house Sue!!!

    I really wish Billy and I made it to Natalia’s party on Saturday, I had been looking forward to it for so long 😦 I’m glad that you all had fun though 🙂


    • We missed you guys!!! But, I think we have Josh’s party in a few weeks so you guys better come to that one!!
