It’s Official

The Octogenarian and her son have agreed to discount the property to cover the costs of repairs to the house and proceed with the sale!

We gave the owner lots of extra time to pack, sort, and have an estate sale.

No pressure.

I can’t imagine having lived there so long and then having to leave it all behind.  I think when it is our turn to leave that it will be heartbreaking to let it all go.

In early June we will pay for the property, and in return we will receive the keys, and deed to the Mountain Farmlet!

So while we wait, there is lots to do.

Sorting, packing, selling, giving away, and condensing down all the stuff of our lives.  It is a small house.  As well, there are painting, patching, and some major repairs that will all have to be done before we move in.

It will be hard work,

and it will all be worth it too!

It is Official: we made them an offer they couldn’t refuse

Yeeeee-HAAA!

OUR OFFER ON THE APPALACHIAN FARMLET WAS ACCEPTED!

Can you feel my excitement?

Soon the antiquated barn with ‘good bones‘ will be fixed and those horse shoes on the wall will be the first and easiest thing done…

I will have to nail them all facing up so all the good luck doesn’t run out.  😉

And I simply must make friends with the pygmy pony too.  I think I will grow  carrots just for him!

An offer they [might] refuse

We are on pins and needles again.  We have now made our offer on the new Farmlet!  We hope they accept it, but they could counter-offer or even refuse.

So, now we wait!

“…The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part…”

I know Tom was on another wavelength when he wrote these words, but they seem apropos to the way we are feeling right now.  😉
