the good...the bad...and the better!!!

first things first!!! i have been tagged in the most wonderful way by stacy!! thanks stace...this is such a cool tag!!! this is cool because it really embraces the idea of a random act of kindness!!!

The "rules" are:

1) Send ONE card to someone you know within 7 days! (family, friends, associates, cyber people, etc.) ANYONE!!! Doesn't matter who... just do it. Can you imagine the smile on their face when they open their mailbox and see a card from you?

2) Tag (yes, I know, but this is the only way to spread this) 5 people you know to do the same thing (Tag means tag them to send their own cards to their own people).

3) Proudly display this on your blog to spread a little sunshine and pass it on.If you get tagged again (we can all hope, can't we), send another card!

There's more information about how this tag began here

so i am tagging ronda, gigi, amber, linda, and jude...have fun ladies!!!

okay so that was the good!!!

the bad...we're not going to England!!! i know totally sad about that....hopefully we'll be able to get some of our money back from the plane tickets...if i can get the names on the tickets transferred to someone else...anyone interested in going to england??? all the would think i would be super bummed about this wouldn't you??

but i'm not!!! why?? am i crazy?? have i completely lost it??? well maybe...but that a topic for another day!!! in the meantime...the better...WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!!!!! i now you can see why i am not super super sad about not going to england!!! england can wait til next year this house couldn't!!!

we have been trying to buy a house for years and have come across one obstacle after another!!! jay getting sick, prices sky-rocketing, and happens!! so it's been a tough and long road!! i came across this house on the MLS listing site and thought why not...don't know what it was about that grabbed me because you can barely see the house and the inside pictures weren't that great...and there are some funky colours painted on the inside...LOL!!! but we set up a viewing and were completely blown away by the house and the yard!!! it's a dream for me...the house was built in 1912 and the yard is huge!!! there is a wrap around deck and a covered sun has some charm left from the era it was built in, such as, attic styled bedrooms and dormer windows...but all the little things like mouldings and what not have been lost!! so jay and i are going to bring the house back to it's former glory!!!

yes i will post pictures...i just don't have any yet!! we take posession september 28th!!! so that is the reason we are not going to england!!! here is the only pic i have and i stole it from the MLS site...heehee!!!

so i had to share my good news with y'all!! if i am lacking in the blog updating department even more so than will be because i am packing and getting things squared away...the house is in the small town of innisfail, which is about 15 minutes south of red deer!!! so school changes for kids....o yeah...that's coming up real quick isn't it?? i will also be getting all that ready for the kids too!!! so please forgive me...but i probably won't be around much in the next month and a half!! i will try to keep you updated as best i can!!

have a fabulous day ladies!! ciao!
