Done deal.

It's official. We now own a farm. (What were we thinking?!) Right away on Saturday morning Winn and my dad were out there ripping out old carpet, tearing off kitchen and pantry cabinets, and pulling down suspended ceilings. It looks better already! We had the electricity hooked up, and they'll be delivering an LP tank tomorrow.

We got a full-price offer on our house yesterday, after just two weeks on the market! Our realtor advised us not to accept it because it was a contingent offer, but we were encouraged by it anyway.

Winn and I are starting to get a bit snippety with each other lately. The stress of it all is starting to get at us, I think. Just too much going on all at once. Time to step back from it all and take a deep breath.

Time for bed. Jonathan will be up early. I'm excited to get up tomorrow--we bought a programmable coffee maker on sale this weekend, so the fragrant hot drink will be awaiting me when I step out of bed!


Guess I'm into collages lately...

We saw someone out on the farm and a burning pile going Friday night...we almost stopped but didn't recognize the truck. Glad to hear all went well. Sounds like you have lots of work ahead, and maybe a few surprises. Tim and I have certainly learned alot from our own experiences, working with bare land and all it will entail to get a home on it. Between the four of us, we could write a book for other young couples of what to expect, watch out for, research about, etc when looking at a home/property in the country.

The truck out there on Friday belonged to the company we hired to get rid of the trailers on the property, but definitely stop by if you ever see us out there! :) We still have the ol' blue truck and silver Honda...

If those folks really want the house, then they can see if it's still on the market when their house sells. Very encouraging. :)
