What a whirlwind 12 hours. We have a signed deal to sell our Alberta house - the conditions come off the offer on March 14 so by then we will know if its a done deal (conditions in Canada are the requirements that would allow the purchaser to finalize buying the property - inspection, confirmation of financing through their bank). At that time the buyers would sign a document advising the deal can proceed and a full deposit of $10,000 is given to our lawyers. Possession date is fast - April 23rd. Fabulous news - a purchase price that is $12,000 less than we were asking but $10,000 more than we were expecting. Fingers crossed everything proceeds smoothly.
In sad news hubby's 99 year old Aunt passed away in the middle of the night so the next few days will be spent trying to get my Mother-in-law(her sister)out here to Vancouver Island as the funeral is in Victoria, a three hour drive from our home. His Aunt was a firecracker, a die hard Vancouver Canucks hockey fan and lived a long a fruitful life. I may have to fly back to Alberta to pick my mother-in-law up and bring her out here as she refuses to travel alone - so I will not be posting for several days.
Such are the ups and downs in life.
