Moving - Sold our Home


Things are happening quickly around here. We had put our home for sale on Tuesday and did sale in 1 day. We have to be out of the home by April 16 and we still don't have a home in Ottawa. We will be going on a House Hunting Trip soon. We hope to find a house with early occupancy. If not, we will have to rent for a little while.

I would love to leave comments on all of your blogs but will be back in business probably in May after we are settled in the new home. It's a big move, we are leaving Vancouver Island and are going to Ottawa in Ontario. Finally we will be close to our two oldest kids.  We are happy and we have mixed feelings at the same time.  We love this place but our hearts are somewhere else.

  6. Helene, good luck with your move. We've moved so many times I've lost track of how many. You were very lucky to sell your home in one day.

    Take care and I'll be thinking of you. We'll all be looking forward to your return. Enjoy moving where your heart is.
