    Default In less than two weeks....

    ...I should be back living in our big house!

    We've given up on trying to sell it after almost 2 years. It's obviously a sign, and I can't stand one minute more of living where we are now, especially not with everyone home all day everyday.
    So, we've been on a kijiji spree this week. Yesterday we were all at the house and the three older kids now have proper beds set up there (which is much more than we can say for where we live now!). We bought an awesome couch for the playroom for $50! This morning we bought some stuff for hanging up coats as you come in and tomorrow DH and my Dad will spend the day hanging curtain rails (I already made curtains for the kids' rooms a couple of years ago!). We pick up our new fridge this week.

    Can you believe it?! I can't!!

    Yeah how exciting!!! What else do you need for the house? Maybe some of us have some inexpensive goodies for you? I'm great at finding deals to so if I know what you need I can keep my eyes open when I'm out and about!

    Aww, thanks Leslie! According to DH we "need" a big screen TV and a leather living room set to go with it. Yeah, right!
    We're actually pretty good otherwise, just waiting for DH to get the time to move us over (he's camping with the Beavers this weekend, then DD's birthday the following weekend).

    I suppose I could host an LMs open house this Saturday, assuming I actually have a key again by then.
