    Default The house is (basically) sold!!!

    (we adjusted the price a little based on the inspection, but just formalities of paper signing now!

    So we a currently "of no fixed address" LOL!

    Next week we go on a house hunting trip - our first holiday on an air plane with all of us together (without DSS).

    It will be fun! YIPPEE!!!

    I hope this will be a sort of holiday, warmer than Alberta too. The older ones may be excited to look at houses and have a better idea about the move. Take lots of photos and enjoy yourselves!

    OH shoot! I had a whole response written and I just lost it... Phooey!

    DH's dad passed away so our house hunting trip has been postponed. He was very unwell so this is actually a relief. The funeral will be this weekend so we will leave on Monday (probably) instead. We were supposed to leave today.

    In the meantime, Ivy's good friend's family, who she stays with after nursery school two days a week has come down with the chicken pox! She was there the day before the older brother came out with spots, which is supposed to be the most contagious period, so we are waiting to see if she gets it. If she does it will be this week (joy). How will we go find a house if we can't go? We are running out of time!

    Also, DH's saga regarding his ex-wife's outstanding child support, which has lasted for 7 years, has come to an end yesterday!!! YIPPEE!!! She was court ordered to pay back several thousand dollars, and it will be registered with the courts to pay back a certain amount every month. In effect, this decreases the amount of child support he has to pay until SS turns 18. YIPPEE!!! After all the years that SS has been told by his mom that we are stealing money from her, and us playing the "we believe your mother is mistaken" and changing the subject line, finally there is a court order showing that SHE actually owed US money!!! LOL!!! About time!

    So here's to crossing our fingers that we don't get the pox!

    I certainly hope you can make the trip Monday!
    I also hope for a solid, enforceable parenting plan.

    Oh my, you've been busy!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your FILs passing. That must be hard for DH.

    But I'm so glad to hear about the house selling and all the exciting things happening for you!

    First of all, CONGRATULATIONS Sara-Jean! I hope this pregnancy is not too difficult on you and that all goes smoothly!!

    I heard from Sarahsunshine today. They are house hunting with the 3 young ones in BC where temperatures are warmer than in Alberta by far! They liked two houses in particular and are busy thinking about them and will perhaps visit them a second time tomorrow and have them inspected. Meanwhile, the kids are needing some attention and they hope to take them to a beach for play.

    They found a beautiful home and put in an offer. Sarahsunshine woke up at 3am and panicked, feeling that they had made an unwise choice! And so they changed their minds. They are now working on a different option, a place with more land but which will need some work. They are happy and excited. Let's hope this one works out! They should find out pretty soon.
