What are the odds???

What are the odds of learning that someone I have known my ENTIRE life has been planning on moving to Prince George this summer too and they are interested in the SAME property as we are!!!!!!!!

what are the freaking odds???


We haven't talked in a while, not cuz anything was wrong just busy with our lives and they live about 45 min away and here that is like the other side of the world!!! She emailed me a while back on msn....which I hardly go on cuz well cuz I am a blogger now and don't have time for msn....and so I started opening my msn and we starting chatting and I told her that we were moving and then..........

She emailed me this morning and told me about them moving to PG and about the house, I was shocked. I thought I was going to have a heart attack actually! the house we have been drooling over and J and I look at EVERY day and refer to as "our house" has been her screen saver for the past month and a half.............I think I am still in shock!!!

She had mentioned that they might be moving up North or to the States but not specifically PG...........so I been chatting her up with how excited I am about moving there and "our house"..........not knowing that "up North" is PG....when you live at the bottom of the Province up North is a big place, that could be anywhere!! and there was no more States in the equation...........anywoo..........what do you do??? she told me she kind of was panicking..........I would be too............and her mom said I wouldn't want to be either one of you, the one who gets the house or the one who doesn't get the house............um ya.....me neither........and yet here we are...........she said she won't fight me for it..........I don't want to fight her either, it feels kind of weird, have I mentioned that yet?...........sorry this still is blowing my wee brain!

J is on his way up there right now and is looking at that house and a few more tomorrow, we are going to make an offer this weekend....on something! we got to see more pics of the place cuz my friend had friends of theirs that live up there view it, so she sent the pics to me, which was great, and J is even in more love with the place.........he feels that is the house for us. He is still excited and I am too but there is a little bit of me going ahhhhh weird inside.........I think it would have been better not knowing that was the house they were looking at too! cuz now I am wondering if things will be .............. well for a lack of a better word.........weird........between us..........


This all just feels too strange for me. I was surprised to find out that I could have a friend moving to PG same time as us and then even more surprised to fine out we both like/dream about the same house!!

really! what are the odds???

That is the most crazy, bizzare thing I have ever heard!!!! Well, I still believe in that "everything happens for a reason" thing, so maybe something else will come out of this. You will get the house and she will live next door? Down the block? You will become neighbors and even better friends and you will spend the rest of your lives together and will sit out on your porches when you are 80 and watch the kids and grandkids run around the yard??

Ya never know....

GOOD LUCK!!

totally agree with Jeanne...there are no coincidences and whomever is "destined" for that house will get it...it might not be either of you...and if that's the case, it's because there is a way better one for you out there. But yeah, weird.

That's amazing - Very AMAZING
I agree with Jeanne. Your life is in God's hand.

I stumbled upon your blog and caught my eye that you live in BC! I'm from the Okanagan and now live in Ontario - YUCK. I miss home. The Good Lord works in mysterious ways doesn't he? Good luck with your move, it sounds like you're going to be very happy!

Crazy and very strange. What sucks is you can't even be happy about your friend possibly getting a new house. Good luck I wish you the best and hope you get it.

Oh man... what a dilemma. I hope it all works out and there are no hard feelings either way. But remember, God's will be done!

If you don't get it, then you know He has something far better than that one ready for you. I love when God blesses me even more abundantly than I had imagined! It'll be OK.

Hi again Lala, thanks for stopping by my blog! Sam sure is fun these days, but sure exhausting by the end of the day that's for sure! I moved to Ottawa because I was ready to relocate after I was left with nothing after a bad relationship so I flew to Ottawa to visit my cousin for 2 weeks to get away from it all. By the end of my trip I thought it would be fun to move there and see where it took me...but with the intentions of moving back home eventually...I didn't know I was going to meet my husband there that's for sure! Crazy the way life works out hey? But I don't blame you for not moving out here - EESH ! the winters are horrible and the humidity in the summer is unbearable. I much prefer the dry desert heat in the Okanagan, not to mention the scenery and friendly people. Eastern people are more uptight too. lol (sorry folks for those who are reading this but it's true, ask anyone who's moved from here to the West. They love west coast people!)Plus...there's no place like home. It's where I was born and raised and I cannot imagine never living there again but unfortunately my husband's job wouldn't survive in Vancouver. He has his own consulting company teaching high tech companies. Most people doing the same thing have to move out here where the demand is. Oh well. I just keep praying! lol

I'll drop by again, take care!
