big stuff

The sale of Mom's house closed on Wednesday. Yesterday.

Today we met with the Fishers and settled on a price of €225,000 for the house. Just a verbal agreement for now, but DrBob and I are very Klingon about our promises, so unless the Fishers back out, it'll go ahead. We'll see the tax guy on Tuesday and the notary on Wednesday. We'll give them the down-payment (€50,000) as soon as we can, at which point they'll hand over the house key.

I've promised to give somebody a WHOLE LOT of money. Augh. Is it time to freak out yet?

Yes, big stuff indeed. This is for sure adult behaviour (note Canadian spelling). However, this does not mean you have to be an adult full time. Hubby Kick contracted and oversaw every detail of the building of our house, as well as fully paying for it - very grown up. He also spent 20 minutes zooming around a department store on a fab 12 wheeled skateboard while I sat on a pile of potting soil and breastfed today - 9 year old in a 30 something body. Lesson - balance is possible. Hope you are okay with the sale of House of Mom, I imagine that is rough.
all love,
Melanie
PS I bought him the skateboard for an early birthday present.

NO! Don't be freaked out, be excited. Very very excited! It's a house, YOUR house.

That is just so cool.
