I bought a new house!

Okay, here it is, my new home....

Funny how things fall into place the way they should in life. I sold my home, with no place to live in mind. I stumble across, almost by accident, the perfect house for my family! It is truly stunnng!

The original farm house (which is now the back of the house) was built in 1845. The addition to the front of the house has a great room and loft. It is so cute, and big enough for me and the four kids! Closing isn't until the end of April, so I have lots of time to pack and prepare (and it won't interfere with my Juice Feast on March 1st)

Only hiccup in the deal, the house is in the next town. It is only 15 minutes down the road, but the kids will have to change schools. They are all at an age where their friends are very important to them and they don't want to leave them.

However, to every Yin there is a Yan; my parents live in that same small town. They will be there to help me with the kids, be that "extra hand", the "escape to papa's house" and the "extra key" when they are locked out. I'm not sure who is more excited about my move (them or I), so you know there is lots of happy dancing going on today! (Did I ever tell you how important my parents are? I just hope that someday, I can be that strong of a support for my children)

It will be an adventure for us all. It has been a long couple of years, and this new adventure and new life is just what the doctor ordered. I am a REALLY HAPPY girl today! This is where you can imagine the HAPPY DANCE going on!!!!

Still looking for that juicer - actually, been a little busy with offers and conditions, but now that I can put this baby to rest, I can tackle other things on the horizon!

PS - check out the great room and loft!

Thanks Robin, I really am excited - seems a bit unreal at this point, but I'm sure that as soon as the boxes start piling up around here, it will seem real!

Finally got into your blog and sat for a few hours and read your daily journal. As I always said to Dad, patience is a virtue and good things do come to those who wait. We are happy that good things are finally coming your way. We are proud of how you are handling the ups and downs and are particularly happy with how you are trying to make your life better and healthier. We are enjoying the green smoothies every day and the odd day when we don't have them, we really miss them. That was a perfect Christmas present and a shove in the right direction. Thanks and we love you.
Dad & Vic

D&V: You read my blog (blush)!!!! Thanks for all you guys do for me!

Shannonmarie: You will have to come for a visit next time you are in Canada - better wait awhile though, we are pretty waist deep in snow up here right now!

I haven't been to Canada in years, but I'd love to stop by for a visit in the future.

Your house looks great! I’m sure you were all very excited to move in. I hope you got the house for a great bargain! Have you paid off the mortgage on the house yet?

You have a very awesome house! Living in the same town with your parents is a very nice way of showing that you care for them. I bet you’re enjoying your place since you can easily bond with your parents at your home. I hope that all is well with you and your family? How’s your house looking now?

Considering that your new home is near your parents’ place, it’s really a good choice. I hope that your place can cope with your daily budget, especially if you're paying for mortgage. By the way, you have a pretty house and I hope I can spend some time at a cozy place like yours! :)
