Successful week...and forced recovery too
This week we were in GP to find a home. We arrived late Wed night and Thursday the search began at 9am. By 2 pm we had viewed 28 houses and had 2 offers in. Both houses were out of our price range and I really didn't expect they would be accepted. I had 2 other houses as back up that I knew we could get. I was almost as surprised as the realtor when the sellers accepted. Fortunately for us they had already moved and were quite "eager" (desperate) to sell. We got a smokin good deal. The house is 1280 sq ft, 4 bedrooms, 3 bath. Way bigger than we need. They are building a school right behind us which will not only increase the value, but will also mean we will have a park/playground behind us instead of another house. The basement has a huge open space which is perfect for a training studio. We are both super happy and excited to make it our home. The bonus is that it is a block away from the girls and is in the nicest neighborhood in GP.
It still hasn't sunk in that we will be living there in a month. It is soooo different and will take some adjusting. I know that we will make the best of it though, and D and I can have fun anywhere.
Training was kind of a bust this week, we went to the rec centre a couple of times, did a bike/ run and a swim, but that was it. I played a ton with the girls though and it was a nice break from the regular routine.
Our plan was to get home and ride, but with the craptastic winter storm that blew in today our flight took 3 hours longer than it was supposed to and we didn't get home until almost 10:00. The bikes will have to wait until tomorrow...and I miss my bike!
I am ready to get back to normal now and am well rested and eager to get the workouts happening.
