The city house finally sold. It wasn’t really a great deal for us but we are out!! As of May 1st in fact so in the next 12 days we have to pack it all, move it and sort/organize it out there!! YIKES. Sounds a bit daunting doesn’t it. But we’ll get it done. Oh did I mention that we are going to Moose Jaw for 3 days for a horse show!! Holy. Funny how we have known for so long that we are moving but we aren’t really “ready”.
The sign that we have been waiting for comes with some emotional strings. There are many “firsts” in this house for Ron and I as a couple and as parents and definitely for our children as it is the only home they have known. We are ready to move but there may be some other emotions that surface as well as excitement.
So today was a red letter day for us! It was also a red hat day for me as the Davidson Red Hat came for a house tour. It was a fun afternoon – we spent time on the tour discussing many things and then sat down in the dining room and there was some specific reminiscing about the house and previous occupants. But the house is ours now it was decided. I think they all approved of the changes and some of them are going to come back with family members for a tour again. Which is fine – people with old houses like to do tours. Or at least I do. Also in the crowd was Tara (only non red hat eligible person there at the young age of — oh I can’t tell that!!) who is the editor of the Davidson Leader -she wanted to do a follow up story and interview.
Then tonight I hosted my first attic craft party. It wasn’t a large crowd but a good time was had by all. Some scrap booked, some measured, some did hand sewing, some chatted, some gave advise and some went home early. Not to fear if you missed it – there will be many more to come but not until after we move!!
Ron and I have spent the week trying to get as much done in the basement as possible as well as tying up loose ends here and there. I got the painting done now that Joanne has done the drywall/plaster patching. Ron got the beam up in Alyssa’s room and today Helen hung the shower curtains in the main bathroom upstairs. Little things that alone don’t seeem like much but collectively make the percentages of what is done and not done increase a lot.
