We're Moving Folks!

These last few days have been pretty interesting. Our landlords recently sold their house, and last week our new landlords moved in... However they did not think we were going to be there! Long story short, there was some miscommunication that took place-- the realtor and our original landlords thought the people buying the house wanted tenants, they thought they were going to be moving into an empty house! They demanded that we move out immediately. Legally, we have two months before we have to leave, but Doug and I decided that if we could find a place for August we would move and make it easier on everyone. (It certainly helped that the realtor is giving us some incentive-- spa gift certificates and a $600 travel voucher!!!) After calling about 30 different places and looking all over town, we finally found a place to move. This weekend we move on up to East Abbotsford! It's a ground level basement suite-- a one bedroom-- that's a bit small, but definitely a step up from our old digs! The dishwasher is a favorite feature of mine. Anyways, once we have everything moved in I'll post an update-- complete with pictures of our new home!

Hey!

Wow, stumbled across your blog while I was procrastinating from prep. Sounds like life in BC is treating you very well. Good to be able to see what's new.

You got new couches, don't you feel old?

I can't wait to see your new place - I'm excited that you get to finally have a dishwasher! We'll have to pop in next week sometime after our company leaves to check it out!

Sounds exciting. Glad you found a place - too bad under such stressful conditions. I hope the move goes well.

Can't wait to see pics. And a dishwasher...too jealous am I:)

Trev and Rebekah said...

Yeah for a dishwasher. I know that I am finally excited about that too. I hope that you can find room for your stuff in the one bedroom. Do you see yourself there long?

I completely feel for you. I just got notice from good ol' Grassmere Greens (now called Woodland Crossing) that I have to be out at the end of August so they can turn the building into condos. A lot has changed around there since you left, Elissa. So, I've found a basement suite, but unfortunately with no dishwasher in it. Boo hoo!! However, there are 2 bedrooms. Yay!!

I'm moving right now too! Yeah for moving. Kind of sucks if you don't want to though. If you're ever back in Saskatchewan, give me a ring. Much love.

Hi Doug and Lisa,
We were thinking of you on your anniversary - happy 2nd! The kids will probably always remember as the 31st is an easy date to remember. Hope your move went well...I would have helped had I been there!
Linda, Bill, Janelle, Danya
