We Are Outta Here!

Yes, count on the p-man to bury the lead... we are moving!

So do you feel sorry for me? Remember, I didn't want to move. Because of the park and because we would be stupid to move.. we live on freakin' Sesame Street!

So, the p-man won?

Not quite. Wo Family this week... everyone is a winner!

You see my new front door is approximately 16 feet east of my old front door. Yep, the neighbours are selling. No more hot talk about people's bushes and no real estate fees either! We knew these guys were moving. We looked all summer and didn't find another fit. This fall they told us what they wanted for their place and hey we took it. 4 Bedrooms up... that means there is a guest room for any of you guys who may be huge luge fans destined for Vancouver in 2010. There are some views both north to the mountains and south to the sea -- score!

I am not even packing as I'm pretty sure I can lob the kitchen stuff between the windows. The house is less than 30 years old, cause face it we need a character home like a hole in the head. A bit 80's but we can jazz it up at the price we got; I'll follow Andrea's lead.

Best of all I can look at creative returns to work while the kids are under 4. Yahoo, to the nth power. We cannot believe we played the Vancouver property market and came out schmeebs intact! Of course we haven't sold our house yet!

Congratulations on the house, the van, AND the sleep.

WhooHooo!! Congratulations on the new house. And don't worry about selling the current one, if you do in fact live on Sesame Street people (and furry muppets) will be beating a path to your door.

Ach..I hate you.

But be careful selling your property since they will be your neighbours.

The only one's interested in my gramps place were developers and they have already built a monster house next door that fills the whole lot.

But I still hate you.

That is too cool.

That's wonderful. You can do as I did once and move in a shopping cart. (Not quite but we walked everything half a block up the street with the aid of dollies).

We moved one block down almost a year ago and you'd be surprised how much you can pile on top of a stroller (not to mention the toddler in the stroller).

CONGRATS! Not an easy game to play - that you came out on top is fantabulous.

Hey, congrats. We've been looking just in case the right thing appears, too. Not that we want to move more than a few blocks away, but it would spare us the years of reno that we are facing...

Stay in the neighbourhood AND skip the real estate agents' fees. Well done!
