A Dinner Date And Fiji’s Fate

Thursdays Feb 23rd –

A little bit of organizing was done.
I guess it’s in the air since that’s what Mike had been doing with the grandparents too 😏

The space under the guest/nap bed was cleaned out and items went through.
Turns out it was mostly suitcases under there… guess that’ll be a good thing come moving day 😬
Bags of items no longer needed by us were prepared to give away and then I went through the kitchen cupboards to find more to add to them.
That was a little harder to do, considering I pretty much only have the necessities as it is, and if I gave away too much I’d have nothing left to cook with 😜

Mike had errands to do, I had mail to prepare and then we headed off for a dinner date πŸ΄πŸ’•

The restaurant we had planned on (thanks to groupon) looked rather, unwelcoming.

An Entirely Different Morrow

Saturday Feb 11th –

Up and out of the appartement Zoe and I went by 10:15 that morning, since there was another viewing of the apartment.

Mike had left earlier in order to show the car to someone who was possibly interested in purchasing it (this being the car owned for less than two weeks) 😏

Zoe and I went to the grocery store, walking in the freshly fallen snow and feeling at home in itπŸ˜‹β„οΈ

Zoe purchased some of the necessary items to take back with her, I got groceries and then Mike met us and we got some last loempias 😁

Mike then drove us back towards the apartment, but as we approached, he spotted the realtor and the young couple with their family who had been looking at our place. So Mike drove further and parked at the next apartment building.

I then asked why he’d done that, since the people wouldn’t know we were the owners even if we did walk by them? His face lit up in realization that that was true 😜
Over to our building we drove and parked and as we gathered our groceries and walked towards the door I readied myself for him to not be able to make it by them without saying something😏 Continue reading “An Entirely Different Morrow”

Jem Moment: Prepare The Basement Suite

So ladies and gentlefolk, prayers have been answered and our apartment has sold! 😳

After three apartment viewing and two offers in one week, we and another young couple came to an agreed upon price/move in date and even a price to leave the place almost fully furnished!

Making it a much simpler moving out process for us come the departure date, which will most likely be in April sometime 😊

It was getting tricky to figure out some future plans while not having anything to base them off of, so it feels good to be getting a bit of a future outlined and now, who knows what else will be ahead πŸ˜¬πŸ˜ƒπŸ πŸ’•

Mom, Dad… please prepare the basement suite😜

Experiencing My Previously Experienced Experiences

Wednesday Feb 1st –

Doesburg day β›ͺ️🏘

After a quick breakfast of apples with a yogurt fruit dip ( thanks epicure – Epicure Summer Berry Dip  ) it was time for us to show Zoe the town Mike grew up in.

And also to make sure loempias got tested😜

The sun was shining so it was a nice day to do some town touring, which Zoe and I did while Mike took care of some car stuff since he would be taking the Audi back to the dealership… it was going to be a tough day for him πŸ˜πŸ˜‹

Zoe and I walked around town and it is such a nice thing to be able to express things to someone who sees the same oddities/differences that I do πŸ˜‹

After we had browsed throughout town, Mike was finally able to join us to eatπŸ‘ŒπŸ»

It’s also just as nice to be able to share the things I’ve found to enjoy with a friend from home, like loempias 😎

Knowing A Lot And Nothing At All

Wednesday Jan 18th –

We decided to call a realtor to come check out the apartment and tell us a little bit about what options we had available and in doing so, hopefully figure out some steps to take in our upcoming future πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ 🏒 πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

We were told the possibilities are to put it for sale now or later, or rent it out once we move out.
It was a fairly long chat and much was discussed and learnt and we booked two more realtors to look at the apartment the next day so we could find the best package.

We really don’t have too much of a plan in place.

We know we go to Canada for a visit in April since Mike found more than amazing deals back on cyber Monday.

We know our plan to move to Canada seems like it may happen sooner rather than later since nothing is really holding us now.

We know there is no real rush, but we also want a bit of a game plan.

Lastly, we know paperwork takes awhile and though ours is mailed in and being assessed, there is no telling how long it will take.

So we know a lot but also not really anything at all πŸ™ƒ
If anyone has any wise words of wisdom, let us know 😜

Later on Mike had to go pick up the phone he was buying and also mail off his work one.

I stayed back and created supper using gyros meat we had frozen. Continue reading “Knowing A Lot And Nothing At All”

The Future Awaits/Waiting For Our Future

Monday Jan 16th –


As I sat upon the couch with my morning coffee, about to set up the laptop and work on the blog, the front door began rattling and I curiously awaited who would appear from behind it since Mike was supposed to be at work at the office, but he is also the only one with a key?

Mike came in and greeted me with a smile and I confusedly asked him why he was back, thinking there must have been heavy traffic and he just decided to work from the house, but this was not the case.

Turns out, he and his bosses had a talk and after much thought and prayer on our part, he will no longer be working with the same company he was.
It was something we were planning on, just perhaps not expecting it to all take place this soon, but we know God is in control and we are believing that this is His way of opening up some paths and helping us plan our future/job/Canada move etc. etc.

‘Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.’ Proverbs 16:3.

(But, this now means I’ll be stuck with him 24/7 until any other plans are made and for this reason I may start sounding even crazier then I usually do, just a warning 😜)

Since he was back at the house anyways, I gave him a task to complete which I knew he would be much better at then I. Continue reading “The Future Awaits/Waiting For Our Future”
