Ta-da! Here's my new little house! Isn't it cute? It can't help that it's not yellow like the other house I wanted... ☺ Our offer was accepted and the inspection passed! We've still had plenty of red-tape/hoops to jump through but we're almost done. Whew! I'll show more pics in the days to come.

|Here's a clearer shot of my new apron. I so love it!|
My grandboy just turned 7 and I wrapped his packages up real cute. I think he cares about things like that but doesn't want to let on.
We made another offer on a different HOUSE today. Fast huh? We really don't want to move in the middle of winter if we can help it so we're keeping up our momentum. *This* time, I'm not showing *any* pics until the offer is *accepted* and *after* the inspection passes! This house is nice and new though so our realtor and lender do not foresee any problems at all. And no, it's not my house or yard of dreams but there are many nice things about it that I will allow myself to get excited about *if* it all works out. I'll keep you posted! I still cry about the other house but it's okay. They're just tears.
Thank you so, so much for all your love and support! ♥

THE BIG BAD NEWS:
Have you thought I've been quiet about the new house? That's because there ISN'T going to be one! BOO-HOO! WHAAAA! Our private inspection (on my birthday!) revealed a bad foundation and roof and evidence of insects so our lender had to back out! I've been shocked, grieved and feel a little silly for jumping the gun. Our lender's inspection seemed so detailed and the sellers had accepted out offer- so I foolishly charged ahead! Never again! (yeah, right) So, we're back to the drawing board and will probably give up trying to buy a crooked old house with acreage. (Why must I love old houses so?)
We need to stay with the lender we have so we're already looking at newer houses in town that are more likely to meet their standards. Of course I hate them all! Ha! I don't know if I could ever feel "settled" in town so this has been really hard for me on *SO* many different levels. We can't really take our time looking since we have to be off the farm by spring so I feel pressure. Spring is a way off but this last house venture took MONTHS of my time, energy, money and emotion so we have to keep looking unless we want to try and rent again and we don't!
I'm going to be okay but thanks for all your love, prayers and support.
PS I'll soon be deleting the old house posts because I can't stand to look at them- it's like a punch in the gut!
