We Have A House!

We have a HOUSE!

Sorry, it just takes a bit for it to really sink in!  We sold our house in PEI in August, & January 1st we got the keys to our BC house!  We had a group of people from the church come & help clean.  We washed all the walls & cupboards, tubs, showers, & stoves (they were gross!)  We had requested for our household goods to arrive January 2, but that didn't happen, so instead we did some touch-up painting.

We did a few coats even since there are 2 very similar taupe colours (light & dark), we picked the light one & put it on the dark wall, discovered that was wrong, then painted the darker colour everywhere, only to find that the first room was the only dark room, so we had to repaint most of the spots again with the lighter colour! Phew!

I have been in touch with the moving company trying to get a date of when our stuff is coming (we are eager to make our house our HOME!), but unfortunately living at the top of a cul-de-sac has its drawbacks.  A big moving truck can't fit, so they have to put all our stuff in 2 smaller trucks, so now it's supposed to come on the 7th.  Hopefully there are no further delays, but hey, it's been 5 months already.  What's another few days?


  1. It's a good thing you are patient...or at least pretend to be, lol. The silver lining is that the house was cleaned and painted 😉 before your stuff arrived.
