Guess What?

We're moving!!

On Sunday we went to look at this house in our neighbourhood and we fell in love. The owner offered us the whole house for a reduced charge and we have a suite downstairs to generate some revenue and it has a huge beautiful back yard and, and, and...
it has the best music room/rumpus room I have ever seen. It even has a built in bar down there so we can serve them up in style. It has a huge, beautiful yard just perfect to get married in and it is on a pretty street about 4 blocks away from here so we can both walk to work if we want to. This house has a dishwasher and a nice washer and dryer as well as a cold cellar and a built in bar in the "den".
The house is about 2 blocks away from Queen Elizabeth Park and the Olympic curling rink. That means we may be able to get some Olympic goers to sublet from us during the games so we can go live in Mexico for a month and miss the whole fracas.
I haven't had a yard in about 7 years, I'm excited about gardening and sitting on the grass and barbecuing and hanging my clothes on a clothesline. The house is in immaculate condition if not a little dated inside. I think I will go with the decor and stick with a retro look, that's the type of stuff we have anyway. That wallpaper in the kitchen is in perfect shape and it really matches the hanging light fixture. Or maybe I'll rip it all out and paint it white.

Thanks, we get the keys a little early I think. Move in day March 1. I know, we only have a few weeks to get packed and moved but we will be all settled in for Spring.
