JEAN'S ON THE MOVE AGAIN !!
At first they didn't have to move so fast, so they started it at a higher price, but as their son's illness became worse, they really wanted to sell it. David, his parents, my parents and myself went to see it. It is bigger than the house we were going to build and has a little bit more land to it. Also, it has a dawdy house attached, like we were going to do, you don't notice until you go inside the main house. The kitchen is bigger than ours and the washer and dryer are on the first floor rather than in the basement, which I like. Basement is all finished off with a section for the freezer and storing canned goods. Our barns are just two years. The bedrooms are larger than our old house and it has more bathrooms. Oh, I almost forgot to tell you that in the kitchen is an electric stove and a wood burning stove. We didn't know it until we bought the farm and Grandmother Olive came in the kitchen. She lite right up when she saw it. It's only two years old, so Grandmother is reading the owners manual at home. I think she can hardly wait to get at that stove. We thought it was a wood burning heater-shows what we know.
The people kept going down on the price while we discussed it with David's parents, who thought we should buy it, if we wanted it. I thought my parents would be against it, because my Father is more conservative in purchasing anything-especially a farm like this one. My parents said, if they hit the right price-buy it.
We went to see it again, this time with Michael, Edward, David, Susan and David Jr. They are going to live and work this farm, so they should have a say, too. We had a family meeting at home and all agreed we should buy it, if we could except David Jr, but being two. he was more interested in the kittens than the house and barns.
Finally we offered as high as we would go and they accepted it. The people have moved. David, Edward, Michael, David's Father and my Father are over there painting the inside. Grandfather Albert is suppose to be supervising, but I think he is painting with the rest of them. There's isn't really anything wrong with the inside, we just wanted a new coat of paint. Martha, My Mother, David's Mother, Grandmother Olive, Susan and myself are packing.
I think the best thing of this is Martha get's her garden land back. We found out the only reason they sold it to us was we were moving next door to them-they wouldn't sell to anyone else. So we deeded the land back to them, but they insisted we take back the money we paid them for it. We still own the rest of they land we were going to build our house on so we should sell that, spring is here and that is a good time to sell. David says maybe we should keep it as we have three boys in our family-two of them will be marrying age in a few years.
So Martha will be taking over for a few weeks for me, again. I really appreciate her doing this for me. She and Joseph have done so much for us as. We really appreciate that Kevin and Bridget let us live in their new house. They want David to do some work on the house when we move out-somethings they decided they wanted that the house doesn't have. David agreed to do it for them-the least we could do-them giving up the house for us.
So I am not leaving, forever. I will be back in a few weeks, Lord willing. I am sure Martha will have some interesting posts for you.
Be With God,
