The hunt is on

So, I may be jumping the gun a bit, but I'm going house shopping in Lethbridge tomorrow. I've got 5 house viewings lined up for Friday afternoon and 1 for Saturday morning.

I'm really excited, but nervous at the same time. You see, Sean isn't coming with me. He is going to be on call this weekend. Looking at houses by myself isn't what I had ever envisioned. I've just always pictured to two of us exploring someone else's house together, talking about the ugly carpet, or the gigantic bathroom. Wondering why someone would pay for paint that colour, or debating with each other as to how big a job it would really be to redo the master bedroom. I'm also nervous that I'm going to fall in love with a house, and it will be gone by the time we have had a chance to talk about it, and go see it again. Or worse yet, I hate all of them and we end up with no where to live, but have to be in Lethbridge for the start of residency. Oh the complexities of Med-school life. Just when I thought things were going to get simpler.

Lucky for me, my Mom is able to be come with me to at least few of the viewings. I need that extra pair of eyes to spot the giant hole in a wall hidden behind a door, and the moral support more than anything. Thanks Mom!

On another note, here's a couple of pictures of the kids jumping off the couch onto a bean bag chair. It's currently their favorite thing to do. I can't wait for nice weather!


  1. Not to mention finding the perfect wall for that giant screen of yours. haha! Good luck tomorrow! I'm sure you'll have a ton of fun but like you I would be a bit apprehensive without my husband too.

  2. It looks like Anise got her mom's head of hair! So cute. Hey my parent's house is for sale, you should look at it too. Except you already know what it looks like, so maybe you don't need to :).

  3. I went today too.... and it's hard without Reg. I wish he was here too! And trying to find something in our price range too! Good luck tomorrow!

  4. So I busted a gut with your last post (what you learned aboout kids and thumb potatoes) I will try to be only slightly envious of your house hunting adventure so close to home! I was actually in Lethbridge this past week and my heart strings are still attached to the darn place!
