A successful HHT

On November 30th we started our House Hunting Trip (HHT). I drove up to Petawawa and checked into the Comfort Inn & Suites. Shortly after I arrived Jordan showed up. That was the longest drive I’ve done on my own–3.5 hours–and boy was I ever stiff after getting out of the car! At least I know I can do the drive.

That evening we met our realtor. Throughout the weekend we looked at many homes in the Petawawa, Pembroke, Chalk River, and Deep River areas. Only a couple really appealed to us. We offered on one home but, due to structural issues that were discovered during the inspection, we decided it would be in our best interest not to purchase that house. Luckily there was one other home that we liked and that was in our price range. After a second look through it, we decided to make an offer. The inspection went well and now we have a home to move to in February. 🙂

Yesterday I headed over to JYSK for the half-price drapery event and purchased 6 full rod kits, a pack of finials, 2 long rods on their own, 10 drapery panels, 2 picture frames, and this cool light-up tree for $200. I think I hit the jackpot! Now I’ve got all the rods and curtains I need for the new house.

Christmas is just around the corner! I’m pretty sure I’m finished Ashe’s gift. I just need to pick something up for J.D. and something else for Jordan, and then I’m finished.
