and they are off

They are off on their journey!! yaaaaa, the kids were SO excited!! it was really cute!

This is them outside the RV ready to head off to the States. My mom and dad and Emily and cousin Q......



We have been unsure how we were going to manage having a going away party cuz with just our families alone we are over 50 people!!! so we thought we were not going to have one, then my mom told us this morning that we can use their restaurant!! so that is awesome! they own a restaurant in the South Surrey/White Rock area and the food there really is the best and she said we can have full use of the kitchen and everything!! talk about amazing!! so thanks mom and dad.........we really appreciate it!!!

House News:

We haven't heard anything from the sellers yet. I talked to our real estate agent yesterday and she said that they wanted us to talk to the Underwriters now............I said no, no more talking to Insurance people, what are they going to tell us that we don't already know??!! she said you are right, nothing, she is about as sick of all this as we are! she spent 3 days going back and forth with the sellers and the insurance company....... nothing new was learnt. I am not sure if the sellers understand yet why we have to pay so much, like the difference between wood and concrete need to be put in Sesame Street format for them to understand??? I don't get it. So I said, tell them we are done talking, that is our offer and we just need to know if they are going to take it or not! enough said. We also said to tell them that we are looking at other places now cuz we move in 17 sleeps and it would be nice to have a home to move into. Another place just came on the market that looks nice, it is a smaller house and not log, but it looks really nice and they have listed as quick possession possible....... 17 days would qualify as quick eh?!! ..... it is 15 acres and ready for horses. So...... what to do? how long are we supposed to wait for these yahoo's to get back to us? Our realtor said she can't imagine what we are going thru cuz she has HAD IT with these people herself and wants to sign the deal.... ya no kidding, she has done SO much leg work for us and has more than earned her commissions. I told her living with butterflies is getting tiring and even though we are doing surprisingly well, by not fighting and still functioning.......well ......... our level of functioning!! :-) we are feeling a bit more than ready to have some closure.

Maybe today will be the day????

here's to hope and faith and trust!
