I am officially on vacation now…I have 7 glorious days off work, then I go back for a day, then off for Canada Day, then work…so in 2 weeks I will only work 2 days.
Unfortunately, it’s not a leisurely vacation…we still have the majority of packing to do for our move next Saturday. This week will be full of things to do. So far, here’s our schedule:
Saturday ~ picking up some furniture from Shane’s uncles house, packing
Sunday ~ Father’s Day ~out in the morning for brunch at one of our favourite places The Muddy Duck (my boys will be with their dad), farmer’s market, pick up the boys and have a lovely steak dinner in honour of Shane
Monday ~ Off to the lawyers to sign my will, more packing.
Tuesday ~ Just packing, so far
Wednesday ~ what else? packing
Thursday ~ Meeting at the new school with our current principal, the new principal, the itinerant teacher, me, and Amy. Pick up the keys for the new house between 2 and 5!!
Friday ~ more packing…Shane will be at the house for the cable guy and the appliance delivery, my step-monster is going to go and help Shane clean.
Saturday ~ the big move…people are coming out of the woodwork to help us load up…we are very blessed to have some great friends and family to count on. We can pick up the truck at 7 am…then I will drop the girls at Shane’s mum’s and the 2 litttlest boys at their dad’s house. Austan and Allen get to stay and help load! We told them that they were ‘big enough and ulgy enough’ to help now that they’re almost 10.
We’re hoping everything goes to plan. As yet, we still don’t know our closing costs. Apparently the builder’s lawyer hasn’t sent our lawyer all the particulars!! So, somewhere in all that, we’ll be going to the lawyer to sign everything. I am getting a little frustrated about that…we should have known our closing costs by now and have a meeting with our lawyer set. Our lawyer is frustrated too. We have the money in the bank, but it would still be nice to know how much of that we have to give over when we sign.
So, if you don’t hear from us, you’ll know where we are!
