Pack up your shit and move!

31 Jan

Well, if you aren't aware, which many I'm sure are not, Sean got a new job.  I can now speak freely of it since I wasn't sure who in the world read this thing and I couldn't blab about it incase one of his bosses stumbled on it.  So, today is the big day.  One meeting to accept his resignation another meeting a few hours later to accept his contract…what a fun day for him.  These past two weeks have been excitement around the house, which heated up last week when trying to find a house.  Should we rent, should we buy, where should we live, how much to spend and if someone tells me that buying a house is an "investment, Melanie" then I will shoot them!


We finally decided to rent.  Yes…go ahead and insert the usual "but you're pissing away your money" or "you could deduct stuff from the house" or "buying is an investment, Melanie".  I've heard it all but with moving in less than 30 days and the added stress of buying and closing on a house would just be too unbearable!  So, we're RENTING…end of discussion!


Looks like we're moving from this adorable house that I LOVE.  It's a little small, but in such good shape, huge back yard and let's face it, it's cute.  Looking for a house in a bigger city is quite a culture shock.  They are expensive and not in that great of shape…until you get into over $1000 rent, which we won't do for various reasons.  So, the place that we found is nice, bigger but does need work.  Work that I'm not sure I want to do on a rental house, but we'll see…maybe some minor fixes will be enough. And the crappy thing is we now have to buy a fridge.  Man, those things are expensive.  Oh well.  Something new and fun to buy right?


Wish us well! LOL  I'll keep you all abreast with pics of the house, the move and everything else!

    Thanks! We're actually moving only an hour or so away, so we're still in the same state and pretty much the same area! 🙂

    Congrats to Sean! I hope this job comes with a nice fat pay raise and lots of benefits. Oh, and buying is overrated. We don't own our house, so when the furnace when out last week, we didn't have to spend almost $6,000 to replace it. Whew!

    Well the pay raise yes, but the same benefits…oh well!
