a bummer, but-Exciting News!

So as of right now i am still in Alberta. I came home to visit so Jeremy could study during reading break and then Jer went to do volunteer dental work at an Indian Reserve about 7 hours north of saskatoon for 2 weeks and i didn't want to be alone with the kids for 3 weeks. I don't get to talk to him too much since they don't really have a phone, but he is loving it up there. He says him and Dyck have sweet cabins, their own bathrooms and satelittle tv, but no phones. He gets to study hard without feeling guilty of not being home. He's loving the work and getting lots of experience. I miss him tons.
And ya the reason i am still here in Alberta is, ( i was supposed to be coming back to saskatoon today) but of course our Van had to break down on Sunday and after getting it looked at it would cost at least $2300.00 bucks to fix (i guess antifreeze got in the engine and other problems) and its only worth probably $2000.00. Even my brother in law Sheldon who is a mechanic, said its not worth it.. so now i am stuck without a vehicle. ARRGGG... just wish it could have lasted another 2 month until we were done. So annoying. So now i can't really leave until i get a vehicle, so this coming Wednesday i am going to the car auction in Calgary with Sheldon who is also a car dealer. We are hoping we can find something good, we will be able to check this weekend on what will be going through the auction and then hopefully i will have a vehicle. We've always bought through him and its been great.. But who knows, maybe i can borrow one of my parents vehicles when they get back from their trip. I am hoping to be home next Sunday.. still another week and a half to go i guess. At least Jer is gone working so i don't have anything to rush home to.

Oh and speaking of home and on a happier note. It's Official, WE SOLD OUR CONDO!!! yayaya!! So sweet eh? WE sold it the first day it was on the market.. so no more cleaning, organizing, showing the place.. aahhh such a HUGE relief. And we made sweet bank on it too! Oh and possesion date is April 27th..yikes soooo soon!!
Also to note we are pretty sure Jeremy has a job!!!! and we know where we are going, better not say any specifics yet officially, we haven't signed a written contract quite yet, but its pretty final. I am really excited to be going back to Southern Alberta, to be near family and close friends.

REALLY really sad though to be leaving already, i say already like we just got to Saskatoon even though it will  be almost 6 years when were done in April. I am sooo going to miss all the dear friends i have here, all the mommy playdates, BBQ's, games nights and ladies night outs...boo ):

Life this month has been huge for us.. and hopefully we will be home sometime soon!

Sounds like things are going great! Congrats on all of it...well not the van part, that sucks. Good luck with that.
Now you'll just have to take your girls nights, bbq's etc to Southern Alberta and you can plan the parties! I love being that person! I just wish I had a bigger house...
