Well then.

It appears I've been neglecting LJ. Turns out I have a pretty good reason. (No not *that* reason - that would be FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC and the post would include sparklers and cartwheels)

But. After searching since October'09 we have finally bought a house! Well, I guess technically we have a completed agreement to purchase, the sale will be final May 31st. But that's a hell of a boring way to say it, so I'll go back to 'we've bought a house!'

Much to my husband's dismay it does not have a pool, but he's already plotting, (I can tell). The seller's pictures don't do it justice, but I think it would be a bit creepy to head over there and start snapping pics from the road so they'll have to do:


My next heart attack is getting this house ready to sell. Do you have any idea how much crap will accumulate in a house when you stay in it for 14 years? And have a kid? And hope to have another? I need a house to store my stuff before I can move it into my new house. I cannot wait to see the agent's reaction on Sunday.

Interesting fact: Half of my wool/fabric stash has filled 30 rubbermaid bins.

Possibly related: I am so sick of decluttering that I'm working on a time machine.

  • Gas now $5.45 a gallon!

    You heard me. I went to work this morning, it was .97/liter. Tonight at 10 every gas station changed to $1.70/liter - Can you say gouging? All over…

  • Happy gas news - NOT!

    Gas is now selling for $1.41/L this morning - with exchange and conversion to those wacky US gallons, that works out to a tidy - $4.66/gal I am one…

  • Wow!

    I'm glad I drove the bike today! (my hubby's bike, mine is still in the hospital). Gas - cheapest I saw was $1.27/l CAD. With exchange, that works…
