..It’s Friday.

So after a very emotional couple of days (had to drink almost double the amount of water to make up for all the water shed in tears…(not an exagerration) and deal with stingy-eyes) as our house from back in time will be no more.

After spending $425 on a home inspection we found that there would be another $25,000-$30,000 worth of work. And that’s necessary work…not like “oh but I need to add a pool and a 5 bedroom extension”. You name it and something was wrong with it. Our inspector (ee were lucky and had a really great and  honest man) said in all the homes he’s seen.(..even all the old ones…) he’s never seen one in this bad of shape. The older woman living there kept the surface clean and what not, but didn’t really bother to upkeep with anything other than wall colours and hanging wall decor since the 40s.


It’s kind of knocked the wind out of my sails; we’ve been looking fairly aggressively for about 6 months now. I know we’ll eventually find the *perfect* house but such is life. Also, if one more person tells me “oh, everything happens for a reason. there, there.” There may or may not be a warrant out for my arrest.


Now I suppose this blog will switch gears a bit…not just about the house we backed out of and all the progress and beforres & afters, but more or less the search of the next big and great.


The search continues.
