i heart the internet

I love the internet. I love the internet because it sold my house!
Last week we had an offer from a couple in Ontario who found our house on the internet. A full price offer, site unseen. They had already sold their house. And in a few days they were approved for financing and approved the house inspection.
So as of Friday my house was sold!
They take possession on June 8th.
I want to be out a week before so that I can get it cleaned and not feel rushed. We are moving in with my parents while we build. We are putting all our stuff in a big semi trailer that we are parking at my aunts house (thanks again!). The trailer comes to my house this week. It will sit here until we are all packed. So it is nice that I get to do it gradually over three weeks, and put away boxes as I pack. The problem lies in trying to figure out what to pack and what to leave out. Like for now I can pack away our winter clothes, but I will need them before we are done building. So I not only have to pack, I have to organize the whole trailer in a way where I can get to everything I might need.
But who's complaining, my house is sold!

We are as happy as a bear in a cave
as happy as a cake covered boy
as happy as a pirate in pajamas
as happy as a bouncing baby boy

I'm so excited for you guys! Did you pick that house plan yet?? You'll have so much fun picking stuff out for the new house and making it your own! Send Roman down the street any time you feel a packing urge coming on - the boys would love it!

Hooray Whit! It's because your house is so darn cute, thanks to your fab little detailed mind. I love the "Happy as..." pictures, Roman looks like Bridgey to me in his pirate picture. You need to bring him to see little Bridge, stop neglecting us already. :)

PS. the serger cost 450.00. It was a sweet deal. The 25 year old guy I bought it from had bought it last year to start a clothing company with his buddies but then he didn't end up doing it in the end, so it's virtually new. But, there's a few up here for sale, one that's 6 years old for 100.00 bucks. It's a Kenmore and this old lady bought it but just never used it, so now she just want to get rid of it.
