The past few days have been a bit of a blur. Ken was at an Open House at work all day on Saturday, and I was at home with the kids who were nutty... I think it was the rain. On Friday night we put an offer in on the townhouse, starting low hoping to work the owner down enough for us to be happy. It felt like a long day because of that, I just wanted it to come together, the back and forth and waiting is too stressful.
We went to church this morning hopeful to hear some good news later in the day. It was our annual AGM day, so we stayed for a mini lunch, meeting and vote. We shared with friends that we were in the midst of closing a deal on a place, and that was exciting. Everyone knows how expensive it is around here, so to find a place under what we wanted to spend is a miracle!
Came in the door and saw a message on the phone, I answered it while Ken watched my face... we got it!!! The tears flowed a bit, it was exciting, overwhelming and really felt like God had brought us to this place.
The kicker... we get possession on April 1st. Most of you know that is the day my Mom died. The reason we even got this inheritance is because when my Mom died, Nana and Papa changed their will to give my Mom's share of their estate to my brother and I when they passed away. I know Nana and Papa's really wanted us to have our own place one day, and I am so very thankful that we can always say they were a huge part of this big step in our lives.
So this week is going to be a bit crazy now with getting paperwork looked at from the Strata minutes, inspection and finalizing our financing. Its Ken's birthday next week, quite the present eh?
