Hubby's booked!

YAY, it's official. Hubby has finally booked his flight and arrives on the 23rd of March, about a week before I should have my baby. My actual due date is the 9th of April, but due to some complications my Dr would like to deliver baby before the end of the month. I'm so excited.

As I mentioned in a previous post, we have decided to list our house in Canada. We put it on the market a week ago today. So far showings have been great. I have one today, and one already booked for tomorrow. Of course the clean freak in me is busy vacuuming daily, mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms. It's insane.... Have you tried vacuuming stairs 8 months pregnant? Not that easy with my heavy Dyson. Just want to sell this house quick. Wish us luck.

What else? We are busy looking for a car for me in Mexico. We will be buying brand new most likely as we want a 7 passenger.... I even said I'd drive a mini-van if I had to. I've never, ever wanted to drive one. I grew up in a family of 5 kids and we had one and remember it was rather practical. My thoughts are we have two dogs, a baby with a car seat, and will have family visiting. We need the extra space for added comfort, not our daily lives. Interest rates in Mexico are insane. I think it should be illegal. Haha. Por ejemplo, Toyota is 17.9% interest on a new vehicle. Ford was 13.5%. Can't remember all of them, but no one was .9 or 1.2% like my trusty Canadian dealerships. Can you say RIP OFF.

Well, that is sort of what I've been up to. Cleaning the house, taking care of my dog Kiara, Dr's appointments, ultrasounds, buying baby stuff, etc....

Next I"ll be sure to post some of the things we've bought in Cancun as well. So exciting!!!

Have a great weekend y'all!!!

We listed our house in Sherwood park Alberta Feb 14th this year and received a signed offer last Sunday (conditions are still coming off - will be done deal by 14th of March). We tried to sell the same house last year and after five months we took it off. I hope the same for you!

I too once said "I will never drive a mini-van". Last JUne my SUV broke down (on Deerfoot of course) and my rental was a Dodge Grand Caravan. I loved it. It is so much easier to lift a baby in and out of and my daughter just steps in. It very well may be my next vehicle.

@Cheapchick - Thanks for visiting my blog :)

Congrats on the pending sale of your house, how exciting!! Also, thanks for the words of encouragement. We had 4 showings today, and one already scheduled for tomorrow....Every showing is a step closer to a sale. Our yard backs onto a main road, so we know that will be a deal breaker - just need to find the right person :) I really hope we can sell soooooon!!! The market has really picked up this year, hasn't it?!?

AJ - Hahaha yes the minivan is something I swore off. Good to know you loved the Caravan, thank you :) Makes me feel a bit better about purchasing one in the not so distant future. Oh and how crappy, breaking down on Deerfoot? That road is DANGEROUS!!!
