We're moving!

I'm so thrilled! We found the cutest little house to rent, for not too much more than we pay now for a two bedroom, and we get the keys on May 1. We have until the end of the May to be moved out of our apartment so at least it'll make it easier for us to move, especially with me going back to work very soon (in less than 10 days!!!!).

It's the cutest little place. It's a small two storey. Two bedrooms upstairs plus main bath. Another bedroom on main floor plus two piece washroom. Nice size living room....lots and lots of cupboard space in the kitchen. And a YARD! So good for the kids. (For those who don't know, we have two boys...Demetri will be five in July and Lucas will be one on April 25 -- I'm on maternity leave until that date). The current owner recently bought the house and completely renovated it. He replaced almost everything in the house but the kitchen cupboards, the kitchen sink and the bathtub. New carpeting, new tile. New appliances!!!! Including a washer & dryer too! Woo Hoo!! (Those who truck loads of laundry down 18 floors will understand my excitement.) We'll have use of some of the basement...a laundry area and a small storage area. The owner's in the process of renovating the basement to make a one-bedroom apartment and those tenants will have their own washer & dryer too so we don't have to share. And they'll have their own separate entrance on the other side of the house.

Oh, so much to do!!!! Arranging with utilities. Getting baby gates for stairs. Packing, packing, packing and PURGING! It's amazing what you collect after six years of marriage and two kids later. My mom said she'll collect all the stuff for a garage sale and keep it at her house. Phew. Then we'll have a combined garage sale either in the fall or next spring. Oh and unhiding yarn stashes, craft stuff and pattern stashes! Yikes!!! I'm not ready for that one. How to explain??? :-)
