So it’s been a while since the last time I wrote. I have been incredibly busy moving from our old apartment to our new home, recovering from a gallbladder removal surgery, preparing my son’s first birthday party and arranging things around the house cause this moving thing is not finished yet, can you imagine?
So let’s start with the moving. Around March, we noticed that it was going to be cheaper to pay a house than to pay rent, plus on the long haul, the property would end up being ours, so we started searching for a mortgage company and a new home. Our real state agent was very kind and showed us several houses but nothing seemed to fit our needs and the ones that would fit them were taken, leaving us tired of searching and posting bids. We were thinking that we would end up with another lease for one more year!
Luckily for us a friend from work told me about a house close to hers, so we contacted the owner, visited the house and ended up buying it. No real state agent involved, so the seller gave us a great price for the property which is close to an acre, with a big yard, a full basement and we even got a chimney to enjoy on the cold coming months! The seller was so accesible that he agreed to wait a month until our lease was over and we did the deal. We moved at the end of August and since I started to feel ill from my stomach, thinking it was an ulcer, gastritis or colitis, it was hard to prepare for the moving. It was a mess but after two days and the help of some friends and my mother in law, we finished moving to our new home.
It is very comfortable and a huge space, compared with our single room apartment, but we are arranging things, we got the floors and we have several projects for home improvement. My hubby has been a huge blessing in all this, he has taken care of Liam while I was in the hospital, got me the best care available at the hospital and he has been so understanding, I love him to death and I don’t know what would I do without him.
Well, baby is up from his nap, so I will talk to you later about my hospital experience, my son’s birthday party and my DIY project of installing the floors in our new home. Oh! And guess who’s got a new kitchen aid waiting to prepare a beautiful bread dough? I will be posting baking recipes for sure!!
