The damage deposit for the new place has shown up.
We're moving to a city called Okotoks. It's a wonderfully progressive community. All the amenities of a city with the small town feel. There are so many bike paths. I think I'll have to learn how to roller blade.
We're looking at a couple of places tomorrow. We'll see. I've asked for:
Large master bedroom with a full ensuite. An office at last the size I have now, with bright windows. Spacious kitchen with a Pantry. Bonus room, for the computers and video games. Room for Mike's music stuff, as well a our workout gear. Garage. Backyard with room for a Garden. Wonderful neighbours. Friendly kids in the neighbourhood for Eric to play with.
I also want to pay someone to move us.
I'm looking forward to this. Love the community we're in, and we're ready for MORE!
Okee dokee. We didn't end up taking the place I originally thought because today we found something BETTER! We were going back for a second look at the one we liked, and I had set one more viewing for a new one I found yesterday.
So here's some of breakdown.
YES! Large master bedroom with a full ensuite. YES! An office at last the size I have now, with bright windows. YES! Spacious kitchen with a Pantry. It's a walk-through pantry. YES! Bonus room, for the computers and video games. YES! Room for Mike's music stuff, as well a our workout gear. YES! Garage. Double attached. YES! Backyard with room for a Garden. So far looks like it. Wonderful neighbours. The neighbour to our right has a tramp, so I'm assuming there's kids there. So far looks like it. Friendly kids in the neighbourhood for Eric to play with. See comment above, and there's a park one-minute from our house.
So needless to say I got everything I asked for AND MORE!
The house is bigger than the original pick, and less for rent.
This house has LAKE PRIVILEGES! So swimming in the summer, and skating in the winter.
We're minutes away from both public and separate schools. We're minutes away from the rec center with the rink and pool.
It's an easy route out of town, so when Mike leaves for work, he doesn't hit a single light until he's 5 min away from work.
