It was extremely fortunate that I had just deep cleaned the house and bought groceries - you never know when your Mother-in-law will be an unexpected guest!
Now we wait for the conditions to come off the sale of our home - Thursday March 14th is the deadline and we are waiting not very patiently - tick tock tick tock. They did their home inspection today and we know the sale of their house went through which was one of their conditions.
If the sale does go through there are all sorts of things to be done - book flights, clean out the house, move step-son, disconnect utilities. Hubby is already making a list of all the things we agreed to do and our new home when the Alberta house sold like build a shed and get a hot-tub. Our new home is half the cost of the Alberta home but we are doing some upgrades to make it suit our new lifestyle - as we intend to be in it until too old to take care of ourselves (*do you think hubby planned it out to marry a wife 8 yrs his Jr?).
Thanks to everyone's kind words regarding the loss of hubby's 99 yr old Aunt. We should be so lucky to live a long and prosperous life like hers. The funeral was a celebration of life and I heard many wonderful stories - even met some more of hubby's cousins who we will likely see again as they only live 45 minutes from our home.
In the mean time, I have the travel bug - dreaming of exotic/tropical/historic places. I have been doing some armchair traveling via the blog world - spent some downtime this weekend reading on Mexico, RV travels, and Europe. I see travel in our future - this time just a little bit different as we get to come home to paradise afterwards!
Did I mention we will be mortgage free - 3rd times a charm - for the LAST time!!
