Yippee! Omigoodness, we had the whirlwind weekend of a lifetime. We found a home last week that we really liked but its up north of Toronto, Ontario. We live just north of NYC in New Jersey (read: 9 hour drive or $600+ flight each). So, Friday morning we decided to jump in a car that night and start the drive up to my hometown. We stayed over in Syracuse (left at 8 and got to Syracuse at about midnight) and then were up the next morning to complete the trip and arrived at about one pm. We met with our realtor at 3, saw the home, fell in love with it, and put in an offer. The owners haggled with us until 11 pm at which point, we sat in my mom's kitchen and FINALLY signed the agreed-upon contract. Yea!
Such a relief. With the baby only five weeks away, I was getting anxious that we wouldn't find a home before he or she came. And even though we won't move until end of February, at least now we have a place to live! I'm so thrilled!!!!! Now I just have to plan a move once January rolls around....yikes!
Anyhow, just had to share our good news!
