Sorry, been MIA!

Sorry I have been so MIA and not doing any weekly check-ins for us!

I feel like I've been running around with my head cut off for about 3 weeks. DH took a new job in Edmonton and starts in just 2 weeks. This past week I: placed our house up for rent (upper and basement suites), received about 150 emails inquiring about renting our property, showed the house to 10-15 people, picked tenants, got damage deposits and got lease agreements signed, spent hours online attempting to find a place to rent in Edmonton, drove 6 hours to Winnipeg for Easter with all 3 kids by myself, spent 3 days in Winnipeg, drove home with all 3 kids........

Yeah.

We should find out about the house we are renting by tomorrow, just waiting for the final stage of the application to be approved. I am also waiting to hear from the moving company who is moving us: this is such a last minute move that who knows when they will be able to fit us in. DH starts his new job on the 23rd and will likely come back the next weekend and pick us up and we'll move. The new tenants move in to our current home May 1st.

Needless to say I will be pretty "sparse" around here for the next month! In one month's time I should be nicely settled in to our new place in our new city!

Wish me luck! And wish poor Emerson luck as he gets sorely neglected by me!

Moving is always frustring and exciting all at the same time! It's nice to have a change...

Congrats on DH's new job! WOOT WOOT! And that is fantastic on finding renter so quickly. Rentals sit empty for so long in my area.

How is Em's skin doing? Did you get that Monkey Balm yet?
