Wednesday March 10, 2010-Things Are Coming Together

I had a really nice walk this morning in the bright sunshine listening to the birds singing. The snow is going away quickly! We're supposed to have about 3 days of rain this week so that should take it away.

I needed to get some financial stuff for the mortgage company so we went to the RV this morning and while I was searching through paper, Gordon went to the river to take photos. I found part of what she wanted but the other part I ordered yesterday from Canada Revenue just in case. It doesn't hinder getting our mortgage though.

While there I stopped at the local State Farm agent and got insurance set up. Since I worked for State Farm for 26 years I decided to stay with them.

We also stopped at the Chamber of Commerce and picked up a Welcome package. Smiths Falls is quite a historic town. There's a walking tour that we'll have to do this summer that looks interesting. There is also the Rideau Trail. It runs from Kingston to Ottawa and goes through Smiths Falls. I doubt we will ever hike that distance but we can do a part of it. There are also a couple of other trails in the area that we'll look into.

We drove by the house again just to be sure that it was still there. LOL. We also stopped at the little convenience store that's just down the way but they didn't have much that would interest us. I had hoped for lactose free milk but NADA!

From there we drove back to Ottawa via a different route. We dropped Gordon at the house and I took off to pick up some groceries and a few items from Walmart.

I still have to book the inspector and then I think all conditions are met. There's a chance that we might not close until May 15th as the sellers may not be able to get into their apartment by April 30th so we said that was fine.

Things are moving right along1


  1. So glad the show is going away. It's time to have warmer weather. Good to hear all is moving along for you guys.

    I still can't believe it. But if you're happy, so am I ! Did you remember I worked in Smiths Falls for 6 years? We'll come up to check things out on our way to Ottawa in June. I know you've both thought of everything so this is likely the best move for you. I just wish it had been under different circumstances.

    Love to you both

  3. I can't wait to see photos of the house (hint, hint).
