SOLD! to the one-eyed woman in the back wearing a duck!

well, my little poultries, our condo is pending, which means that if the financial institution okays everything, our lovely edmonton home will soon be our home no more.

it's been a good ride, a fun ride, a warm and loving ride, but it's time to move on. i'm doing that thing where i accept the inevitable and look on the bright side because the alternative is essentially a toddler-style emotional meltdown and we know that is not a good look on a "large boned" middle aged polish lady. my peace and acceptance feel pretty solid, but i always fear i am teetering on the edge of a precipice and, having on more than one occasion spent months in the deep dark hole of depression, i'd rather stay out of it and coddle my inner polyanna. besides, if there's one thing my advanced age has taught me it's the inevitability of change: all things end*.

okay, enough weak and obvious philosophising - i'm slowly running out of cliches and my coffee's getting cold. raise a glass of something cold and bubbly to the end of an era, and the start of another!

*a nugget of wisdom from me to you. you're welcome.

Grief and joy mixed.

I tend to think of it as "everything has a lifetime."

That was quick! I know you wanted to rip the bandaid off and move on to other adulting that needs doing. Here's to the next adventure!

Well done PC. Very pleased to hear that the sale was a quick one. How did you manage it? One has become accustomed to properties being on the market for months - sometimes years! - over here. Hope all your future storms and tempests be little ones. :)

zhoen - yup. precisely.

g- thanks!

tom - i just have a very very good agent, plus my place shows very well. and, despite tales of woe, our market here is surprisingly spry.

bte, here's the link to our place, so you can see how photographical magic also played a part:
