Moving...

It's been a little hectic around here for the past few weeks because we are packing up our stuff and moving to a new place.  We decided a long time ago that after our trip to Spain and Morocco we would start looking for a bigger space to accommodate our growing family.  We figured it would take at least four to six months to find the right place for us...just in time for the new baby to arrive.  WELL, it didn't work out quite like that.  From the time we started looking to finding "the place" was a week.  Then from the time we put in the offer and was accepted, another week.  So we suddenly had a new place and no time to get our old place in tip top shape to rent out.  So much has to be done, namely a brick patio for one,  re-painting (including our laundry room ceiling) , re-caulking and grout sealing the tubs, fixing odds and ends around the house, deep cleaning, window washing, getting rid of old furniture, showing our home to potential renters, etc, not to mention just packing!  So many things to do when McKay is completely consumed with work and I am six months pregnant.  It keeps getting better as I had already planned and bought tickets to fly out to see my family in Alberta for a week and a half just before we have to move out!  I've been making presents for every one instead of buying them to break the cycle of mindless consumerism (I will rant about this in another post), which has taken up a lot of time.  There just doesn't seem to be enough time.  
When it rains, it pours!

I wish you guys lived closer too! It's challenging not having a lot of family close by sometimes. It seems like a luxury to have that kind of support. We can't wait to have you guys come!
