Slowly getting there....

It was a crazy weekend but we managed to get everthing out of the old house and to the new house. Now comes the fun part - unpacking! So far, we haven't done much. I have the kitchen set up, but thats about it. My next goal is my desk.

As soon as we are more unpacked I'll post some photos!

After weeks of sold, not sold, maybe, maybe not we have finally closed on both the sale of our Sumas house and the purchase of our new house in Ferndale! We were supposed to close 3 weeks ago, but our buyers financing was dodgy at best and their mortgage broker was even worse! But in the end, it all worked.

Since we didn't know until the last minute that it was actually sold (it has gone back and forth so many times I wasn't going to believe it until the deed was actually recorded) I didn't start packing until last night. Thankfully my wonderful family came over to help. We all got to our place at 7:30. While I sat dazed eating my microwave dinner for a few minutes my mum and Jackie went to town! They had my kitchen packed in a matter of minutes I swear! Ok,so maybe an hour or two. But still - they were amazing!

So today I get to keep on packing and studying. We are hoping to get all of our stuff into the new house by the end of the weekend, so for the next few days we are between homes.

I'll post pics as soon as we are in the new place!

Threats, tests and other chaos

OK - quick recap.

Had 3 more "threats of violence" at my school. Cancelled one of the classes and made us go home early another night. Very annoying, but hopefully they will catch the little jerk soon.

As usualy, I'm being tested to death in both of my classes! Lab exam, lecture exam, lab quiz, psych test....they just keep coming! So far I'm surviving ok.

And the good news is that in 3 weeks and 5 days, I'm done anat and phys, and 5 weeks from yesterday our friends arrive from Germany and 5 weeks from today I finish psych and get 5 blissfull days completely off from school!

As for the house.... I feel like a yo-yo! This week has gone from a near definite yes to no multiple times!!! Right now we are in the maybe stage. We should know today if one more thing is approved, but who knows.

As I said before, as soon as I know if/when we are moving, I will post it on here! I seriously can't wait for this ordeal to be over!

Connecting with my inner child

Well, maybe not with my inner child, but certainly with childhood friends! Thanks to the beautiful (yet addictive) world of Facebook, I have found my best friend from elementary school! Oddly enough, when I first joined Facebook I wondered if I might somehow find her. I was flipping through someones friend list and Voila! There she was! So after 10 years, we're doing a bit of catch up and it's great!
