Beautiful Saturday morning here and I have exciting news - I am moving house !!
We have not been looking hard , more like grazing houses for sale , hoping something might come up with fewer stairs , perhaps out of the city but still within striking distance- I am 5 min drive from work now and would not like a long 1 hour drive or anything like that....
So Wednesday I found this little jewel - and seems like I have gone and bought it !! hahahhahah
It is 20 min drive to work and on protected Hertiage lands , so no large developments are allowed in my direct area I am moving - right by the Credit River ( 2 min walk) and surrounded by conservation areas ( ok and to the west suburbia ) ....it is also on a dead end street ( little traffic)......
From the minute I saw this house , it was like destiny hit me and it was almost like everything was happening on its own .....and it happened so fast - by Wed night we had a offer in - and now once it passes home inspection it will have the all clear to move forward with the purchase .
Here is the link to the listing if you would like to take a peek!
So since this was totally unplanned I am now going to be clearing out my house to get it ready for a quick sale . The homes in my area go quickly so I am hoping this will be the case since I bought without it being conditional on the sale of my property !!!
I am also "a bit" of a pack rat so this is going to be fun and a challenge.
I am not sure I would have been doing this as a smoker - I may have been smoking in the morning instead of cruising the real estate site while having my coffee.
Wow, Kathy, that is so exciting! The new house sounds lovely, fingers crossed you sell your present one quickly. Congratulations!

Today is the best day to not smoke!
Beautiful house! Beautiful! I can't believe Betsy said "little". I think it's large as a palace and I love the yard and the porch. Wow. God bless you. It has happened so easily it must all be exactly so.

Real attractive abode!!!!!!!!!! Good for you!~!!!!!!!!!!!! Pykke
Congratulations! It's adorable. You sound like me, "cruising the real estate listings." I LOVE to do that! I'm trying to find a good compromise for what I want and what hubby wants, some huge differences there. Good luck with the sale and the move. It looks like a sweet place! Love the open-ness and the yard.
When I thought I couldn't quit smoking, I couldn't. It was when I thought I COULD, that I DID. QD: 10/01/01
