Saying goodbye to our old home…

Only four more days until our official moving day and man, it has gone by fast! To try and reduce the number of back and forth trips on Saturday, Hubby and I went back and forth to our new place this past long weekend (Happy belated Canada Day btw!)  to drop off some boxes. During our first trip we took a look around our freshly painted living room and Hubby said:

“Uh, I don’t think we’ll be able to install an air conditioner on this floor”

There are no windows on the main floor, just a front door and a sliding glass door at the back. Weird how the logistical lack of air conditioning never occurred to us before, but it being July, we definitely were noticed now. On the plus side though, it’s not that hot on the main floor. I guess we’ll just have a lot of fans in the living room.

Central air conditioning is one of the luxuries that we will miss at our new place along with lower rent, a bigger finished basement and an actual backyard, as opposed to the postage stamp that backs onto a parking lot in our next place. The off-leash dog park in our old area has also been awesome, we’ve made lots of human and dog friends there and we’ll miss them too.

But despite these complaints, we like our new place, it’s much closer to work and school and the house is still pretty nice, it’s just not as nice, but that’s a tall order.  Basically we’ve been spoiled for the past while; It was over brunch almost four years ago when Hubby’s dad offered to buy a place and rent it out to us while Hubby was in school. I was going mental in our old apartment and practically jumped for joy at the offer.

We looked around and then found a great town home all the way in Orléans, close to my parents. So the five of us-Two humans and three very co-dependent balls of fur-moved in and it has been great. Unfortunately, my parents shortly after moved to the far, far west end (They assured me it wasn’t personal. Yay, right mom! LOL) and after Hubby was all done with school, we were pretty tired of the long-ass commute. Then I got accepted into school and know you’re all caught up.

So it’s goodbye to our old home and hello to our second rented home. We’ve had some great memories of our little corner in Orléans, but it’s time to move on and we’re very excited!:)

    Bittersweet, but super exciting to have a new beginning! I know that the fiance and I are chomping at the bit to put our house on the market and get into another area next year. Nothing like a fresh start!
