Here we are another update. And honestly I couldn’t be happier. Hopefully by the time this goes live we actually will have gotten our official message confirming that we are moving back home to Nova Scotia and we are no longer waiting to put offers on the houses we would like to purchase. Let’s talk about the month that passed and the month ahead!
House hunting is stressful in today’s economy in Canada. I will be writing a blog post about that in the coming month so you can hear all about how whacked the housing market is especially in Nova Scotia where we will be moving! Every single house we seem to favorite seems to be sold before the next day and normally WAY over asking price too. Due to out of province buyers as well. We still are a mentally recovering from the house we were “promised” and then them going back on their word. Karma will get them that’s for sure. But until then all we can do is favorite homes that have potential and hope for the best as we wait and hope our offers are high enough for the seller to entertain and accept.
Being another month down it also leaves a lot of hope for us due to the fact that we are edging closer and closer to moving back home. I am so excited to have my parents meet my son as they have yet to meet him in person. Out of my family he has only met my Uncles who life about 40 minuets away and even that wasn’t so often with all the restrictions that are posed on Quebec in hopes to curb the Covid-19 spread (Which obviously hasn’t been doing a whole lot as they just recently added church gatherings to be a max of 250 people in time for Easter *Insert eye roll here*). My mom also keeps mentioning that she wonders if our son will recognize her based on the video chats and things which I think he will based off of their voice however you know how babies are, they do cry with new people!
I also have some AMAZING news that I cannot share just yet though. One more month and I can share it, Maybe not for the May update but a little bit afterwards I should be able to do something for it! And as a little secret I have already started working on that announcement post as well! Maybe you can guess what it will be about before I announce it!
As for the move and prepping for that, I am slowly but surely trying to go through the basement of my home. I am trying to go through different bins and organize and throw things away for the trash. As I believe I had mentioned in previous posts it is a lot easier to get things to throw away here in Quebec then it is in Nova Scotia. They have much stricter garbage rules including clear bags so they can see what you are throwing away and if there is anything recyclable they don’t accept it and you then have to go through the bag again before the following week. Ive been trying to go through and make 2 small garbage bags to throw away each week which I hope to push a bit more and really work hard at doing this. I don’t want to be left bringing a bunch of junk we wont be needing again, We did that when we moved here and I would rather leave things and have a somewhat fresh start for the new home!
Easter has also been coming up, This will be published the day before and Ill be publishing the Easter blog on the upcoming Tuesday after it happened. It was still a bit challenging doing something small for my son since he is only a year and a month. He doesn’t really need the chocolate and things but I wanted to be creative in thinking of stuff to fill his basket. Ill go into detail more about what we really put in there and thought about doing on Tuesday’s post! I am also excited to share that with you too!
Book writing has been going well. I need to really focus on that a bit more in April and be more self disciplined. There is so much I am learning when it comes to writing a book that it really is like taking a school course. I am excited though for whats to come and I hope I can be a successful writer though. I have one book I have been kind of editing and continuing to change a bit with the help of my mom’s friend who is an established writer. I keep writing down the notes and editing she has wrote so I have my own cheat sheet as I keep growing my skills as well too. It is coming back to me from when I was in school though all the rules and regulations to make a proper story.
As far as streaming goes, I think streams have been goign great! Ive been tryign to gently push myself to stream longer and a few bonus streams. My average viewers have also been climbing steadily which also terrifies me for moving because I will be taking time off and when you take time off from streaming you basically become irrelevant and have to start over again. I hope to put things in place to not have this problem happen though. And if it does well, back to square one again.
Anyways I must leave with this update, Prep yourselves for some interesting and exciting updates in the coming month! I know I am getting excited and giddy just thinking about writing them for you!
What are your April goals?
