bought a house

It was a long late night last night, but we actually bought a house. It's conditional of course on a home inspection and financing which is already pre-approved. So it will be official if all goes well, by August 26th. So I may not take as long of a hiatus from the blog as I had originally thought.We're absolutely ecstatic. The house is absolutely a fixer upper/updater. But that's what I do and I look forward to the challenge. We're not necessarily flipping the house, because our plan is to be there for at least 5 years. But when we're done, doing what we have in mind I'm absolutely positive that we can add between 50-70k in value to the house.. With minimal investment..

Sorry I haven't been around for awhile, but I think I may continue to be on hiatus until this house hunting situation is all finished up. Which could be possibly next Friday..
Both kids are changing daily, and although I'd love to be writing about them, I simply don't have the time right now.

I'll be back in a week or so..

One part down!

Long weekend, over and done with. We managed to get away to the cottage from from Friday until Monday. Thanks in large part to the fact that our house is officially sold. We found out late Thursday that the home inspection went very well. And on our real estate agents advice he suggested that there was nothing we could do with regards to the financial conditions being met, and that get away and take a much needed break. If all went well we would have to begin looking for a house at some point this week. Then on Friday night we got the call saying that the conditions were waived and our house was officially off of the market. Thank god, otherwise we would of had to come home and make sure that everything was spotless for future showings..

So it was nice just to get away and relax for a few days without even so much as a thought towards our impending search that is about to begin. The kids were very good, and the weather co-operated very nicely. It was a great weekend all around.

On a seperate note, Koa had his 2 month doctors check up and he's now 25 inches long and weighs 13.8 pounds. He's getting big very fast.
