We''re Moving!

OK, so life has just gotten a little crazier around here. No Wednesday night at 9:30pm, just as we were headed off to bed, the door bell rang. It was a process server. Our landlord has decided to sell her two rental properties and our lease is up in 2 months, so she had us served with 60 day to terminate the lease papers.....

WOW, we didn't see that coming. Well, I guess we should have since she is 82 years old and has no living relatives. She's in pretty good health, but that could change at any moment. Sean called her as soon as the person left to find out if it was something we did. We have never been late on our rent in the 3 years we have lived here, so that couldn't be it. We did have her repair guy in our house this past week doing repairs to the roof and Sean got into it with him for just showing up whenever he felt like it and not giving any notice or even a time frame. I thought maybe he told her we were being unreasonable, but she was actually looking for someone to replace him, so Sean didn't think that was it. In the end, she said she's just getting old and her financial advisor told her to sell her properties. So, that's what she's doing.

So, after getting no sleep that night, Sean took the day off Thursday and is looking into real estate agents to help us find a new home. This is actually a blessing in disguise. Lets face it, we've outgrown this house. It's a 3 bedroom and only 1500 sq ft. Way too small for a family of 9 with two dogs and two cats. Sean is commuting over 100 miles a day for work. This is our chance to move to a town in the middle of his locations, which I must say, is MUCH nicer then where we are currently living. For a couple hundred dollars more, we can have a 4 bedroom with a big backyard and better location. This is going to be easy.............HA!!!!

Day 2- Sean decided to take a short leave from work to get this house hunting thing started. He contacted 2 realtor's yesterday. The first one was less than helpful and only sent us 3 houses in our price range, none of which were four bedroom. The second agent was much nicer and said she had 2500 listings for us to go through. She said she would send it LAST NIGHT....still waiting for those and it's nearly noon here. We are not off to a good start. Thank goodness real estate agents are a nickel a dozen. (Yes, I know I said that was intended) So, if we don't hear something from her soon, Sean said he would call her back. Otherwise we'll just find someone else.

On a happier note, here are a few new pictures of the kids. Hope everyone is having a Happy Easter weekend!
Mary and Liam, I love when she makes that face!

  1. Oh, I'm sorry for such bad news right before Easter!! In the end, you will probably be so very happy it all happened. Remember to pray a St Joseph Novena, to help find the perfect home for you and your family!

    (with 2 of our homes, we did the novena and our homes sold on the 9th day of the novenas!)

  2. OH, and at least you don't have to sell anything!!

    God bless you this Easter!

  3. Best of Luck finding a place - I know you will. Moving is tough, moving with pets and kids is even tougher but you'll get through it!

  4. Wow, good luck with the house hunt! I know it's stressful but I have no doubt it will all work out =)
