Buyin a House

So the last week has been alot of driving.. The trip here was looong and we are dreading the return trip to pack up our stuff.. may end up hiring someone to do that (work will pay anyway!)

After days of driving around, with and without the realtor.. we found where we don't want to live!. We were having a hard time finding a nice enough neighboorhood to buy our second house in ( had to throw that in hehe), without spending more than we should..(bank said 200g but I don't want to eat spam and KD for 25 years)

2608 Kalum St


This house is quite nice! We fell in love once we saw it, from the brand new carpeted huge upstairs loft (don't have to duck at all) To the 2 bedrooms on the main floor, double french doors from the stylishly decorated living room into the newly laminated kitchen. The newer style bathroom, full laundry and built in dishwasher help to create desire in a home buyer.
The basement is only accessable from an outside door, stairs will have to be put in if we want to get at the basement from inside. It is all new looking concrete with rooms framed in and plumbing already run, easily allowing us to add 3 bedrooms to the house!.
The back deck covers from the back of the house, wrapping around the right side (looking from this angle) and catches sun all day long.

Grape vines and cherry trees surround the swing/slide play area in the backyard. Rock and woodchip landscaping, almost putting green lawn (k more like fairway but niice!) surround the house making a cozy private area with plenty of parking.
The offer was accepted a few hours after we sent it in, and by sept 15th we should be moving in, if the inspection goes well! We encourage ALL who are able to come plan a trip for the end of Sept to come have a look and party on the deck!

When we go to have the house inspected we'll take some of our own pictures and post them for your viewing pleasure!

Moving prep

My moving prep entry may be slightly different than my wife's... You see, she is busy packing away trinkets and dishes into well padded boxes, organizing toys and cleaning out the fridge.. I've been golfing :)

Now the Prince George branch of the Pine Valley golf courses isn't quite as fancy as this one, but you get the idea.

Last night was boys night, we went out for dinner, my father, brother and I,. We scarfed down some chinee and were on our way.
Golfing was a gruelling contest of skill and mental stability, and in the end I beat them both down. Not that it means I golfed good, rather bad in fact, they just golfed worse!
All in all it was good to get out and have some time together, brings back the woodshed memories... no not those kind.. the ones where you go and get wood, from the woodshed.

Work is contributing to my move, which will ease the strain and decrease the pain.. ( why do I insist on rhyming everthing? I should just get rich and show off my Bling.. ) So the plan is to check the area out.. have a look at whats what and who's who and why and where and all that jazz. Then come back in a month or so to get the rest of our belongings and move into the new place.
Good thing I've prepared so well for the move, should make the transition easier... :)

Peece Owt.

Q.Whats worse than having nothing to write about?

A. Not feeling like writing when you have something to write about!

But ok..

I was offered the job of NW Project Coordinator for the Nursing Technology Support Team.
Swiftly moving me about 10 steps up the corporate ladder. So needless to say really, I accepted! Before long I'll be packing up my little family and charging off towards the ocean in search of adventure, a little solitude and bit more money!

We aren't exactly sure when the big move is happening, within 2 weeks I suspect, as I already have some appointments setup in terrace on the 28th. I'll be sure to keep you updated as we go along discovering the little tidbits of information that will form the mosaik we call our 'new' life.

This morning the colors seem dull, sounds are muted as if I'm not really here, as if I'm watching a movie of my day. I could see my breath in the air, smell the rain and sense that something was missing.

At first I couldn't place it, the missing thing. Was it humpday? no.. we've made it past that. Is it mid summer blues? (is there such a thing?) I think so.. but no.. it's not that.. More a feeling of loss or when you miss a breath and catch yourself wondering why it happened.


And then it dawned on me. Th3K1m has left the city.
