Better Late than Never!

WOW!   So I would like to take this time to apologize for seriously lacking in my writings....It has been one wicked busy Summer....We bought a house in Nova Scotia, so I had to drive across country by myself for the closing; My husband and I FINALLY went on our honeymoon, (took us 5 years); and we had a six week vacation!

 We bought my Dream House....Its huge!  It is a 6 bedroom, 5 1/2 bath, 3000 sq Heritage DREAM!!!!!  There's only one problem....Its across Canada, AWAY from my family.  My husband and I originally are from BC, so this is a huge, HUGE move.  At the end of June I took a road trip across Canada with my oldest son, and it was amazing!  Before I left I got lots of comments of disbelief that I was gonna do it.  A neighbour told me he would never let his wife do that, I thought that was strange that he should be the one to "let " her do it.  But that's another topic for another day.  I did it anyways, 12 to 14 hour days driving with the company of a 7 year old.  We took the seats out of the back of the van and slept on an air mattress at truck stops and camp grounds.  We made it in 5 days.  Boy was I happy to stop driving, but so happy to be at my new house.

We closed the deal on the house, the roofers started the new roof, and Helga (my new blue crowbar), Cole and I ripped out the rotten deck and the horrible carpet and tile the previous owners had put in the kitchen.  Who puts carpet in a kitchen, especially when the rest of the house has old wide plank flooring?!?!?!? After the a few weeks of bliss, we had to leave...and drove back across Canada again.

We got back home, stayed for all of 2 days and then we were off again, this time the whole crew and drove to BC for the start of our summer holidays.
